    For Tulum, the rained out location is the Tequila restaurant. There are pictures on Page 9 of this thread.

    ETA: Oops, I just realized you meant dinner not the wedding... sorry! I'm not sure where the dinner gets moved if it rains.

      Thanks for trying Stacy! But yep, I'm looking for the dinner option. I've heard that it's a meeting room in the basement with no windows! Yuck, eh?

      FH and my family are dead-set against having guests use one of their a la carte's for the wedding dinner. It's just that since we're getting married in October, there's a good chance it might rain.

      I can't believe I'm asking but...has anyone done their wedding dinner in the buffet? Did they do any set-up for you?

        Are ALL the restaurants open-air? Is that why you are asking about rain out?
        I don't wanna eat in the basement!

        I am 99% sure it will rain on my wedding day too.....I know it's good luck, but I hope it clears up for the wedding...or just rains for a little bit!

          No, the restaurants are fine. It's that when you do your dinner in a restaurant it counts as one of your guests a la cartes and FH didn't want to do that. So we were going to do the private poolside dinner - it's THAT dinner where the rain option is the "meeting room" (which I think is in the basement).

            In the basement that would stink can you ask the WC (I know good luck) if it rains can you have it in a rest. and they credit everyone a dinner since you are paying for it?

              Why couldn't you just have it in a restaurant and still pay for it? That seems silly that you can't! I would ask your WC.

                    Hey Amanda. Yes, our rainout option was in the basement... HOWEVER that was for the Akumal side. Who knows what it is on the Tulum side.
                    We had our welcome dinner in the buffet. They blocked off a section for us and it was perfectly fine.
                    Honestly, if it rains don't worry about being in the basement. It'll still be beautiful and you'll be surrounded by your closest family and friends. Not to mention, you don't need to STAY in the basement. Have your rain plan be to eat dinner down there, toast, maybe do an hour of dj with your first dance, and stuff like that... but then have everyone go to the bars with live music Could that be an option?
