    Wow corvette yiur DJ is only $17 per hour? That's cheap! I will have to think about doing that. Do you tell the WC right away if you want a poolside reception, or wait until closer to the date?

      We stayed at this resort (in Coba) a few years ago and it was beautiful. I absolutely agree with you about the rooms. I believe that our guests would rather have the newer rooms with the ammenities that they offer compared to being close to the beach. Every situation is different and the brides really need to know their groups.

      Can you please tell me more about the private reception that you're having? This is what we're looking at as well...and although there are alot of posts in this forum about this...I think you would probably have the most current pricing and information. Mainly, I am curious about the location? price per adult? price per child (if you're having any children there)? price of DJ? what type of drinks are offered? if they have an alternate (inside) location in case of rain? Anything else that might be helpful...

      Everything about your wedding sounds exactly how I have things "planned" in my head as well...right down to the number of people attending and everything :)
      Hi Emme,

      The reception is poolside and the charge is basically for the set up. They do cocktail tables with cloths and open a bar which is normally closed. You get your own waiter and bartender. Here are the options:

      1. Special Cocktail
      Sparkling wine, Beer, Margaritas, Pi±a Colada
      5USD /Pers extra hour 3 USD /Pers

      2. National Bar:
      Beer, Rum, Vodka, Tequila, Cocktails, Gin
      17 USD/pers/hour
      extra hour: 12 USD/pers

      3. International Bar:
      Beer, Tequila, Rum, Vodka Absolute, Whisky JW, Chivas 24 USD/pers/hour
      Regal, Cutty Sark, Cocktails, Gin Beefeaters, extra hour: 18 USD/pers wine of the house, sparkling wine

      We are doing option 1 as we found thats what we usually drank on holidays anyways, and there is apparently a lobby bar near by if people really want a different drink.

      We are renting it for 2 hours and hiring a DJ. His cost is $150 US per hour.

      I tried attaching the photos of the wedding site we are being given but it keeps saying invalid file.... can anyone let me know how to put photos on If not PM me your email address and I will send them to you.


      Let me know if you have any other questions... Can't wait, less than 2 months!!!!!!!

      Heidi

          It's great to see another Coba bride on here. Have you sent in your request for a wedding date yet midnight24? I am going to try and have my request form sent out by next week at the latest. I'm just trying to make sure I have all the info first! I hope we can help each other out over the next year!!

            We were told that the DJ is $150 per hour. He is provided by the hotel, but must be paid in cash prior to the wedding. I have heard many good things about him. The bar costs are seperate from his services.

              Hi Erica,

              We booked it shortly after confirming our wedding date. There are only so many locations, so if you decide its something you want, I'd say book it sooner than later! Dates fill up quickly, as it was we got the last wedding that week. But they made us wait till we knew which tour company we were traveling with before they would confirm our date, which was very nerve racking!!! But it all worked out and now less than 2 months before we board... wooo hoo
