      I'm confused about the poolside cocktail party - I emailed Eugenia and asked about having the party with national drinks only. She asked if we wanted the $41/person option - is that the cost? I thought it was only something like $5/person.

      She also quoted me $70/hour to rent the speakers for an iPod.

      Thanks!

      $41 a person sounds like the $36 for the meal and the $5 for the drinks... but that seems slightly odd to me that she'd put it that way. 

       

      I'd maybe respond with what kind of drinks you were looking for.

        Hello,

        When I booked Eugenia emailed me the following:

         

         A private cocktail after the dinner beside the pool until 11:00 pm, as it is private it will have the following cost depending of the Open Bar you want:

        National Bar:        
        Beer, Rum, Vodka, Tequila, Cocktails, Gin, Whisky        

         $17 USD per person for the first hour  

        extra hour: $12 USD per person

        International Bar:        
        Beer, Tequila, Rum, Vodka , Whisky, Cocktails, Gin, International brands wine of the house and sprkling wine                                              

        $24 USD per person for the first hour 

        extra hour: $18 USD per person

        Special Cocktails:
        Beer, Pi±a Colada Cocktail, Margarita Cocktail & Sparkling Wine                                                  

        $5 USD per person for the first hour
        extra hour: $3 USD per person 


         So my guess is that Eugina is assuming you are having a cocktail party with the National Bar for 3 hours after your dinner
         

        $17.00 for the first hour
        $12.00 for the second hour

        $12.00 for the third hour

         

        Equaling a total of $41.00 per person for all three hours of the cocktail party 
         

        Hope this helps J

            Now that you mentioned, I have not heard from her in 3 weeks myself...off topic, but I noticed your wedding date is October 17th, I'm getting married on the 12th and also staying at Coba! When do you arrive at the resort? Perhaps we will cross paths.

                This is exactly how she quoted us for the bar (we did the special cocktails so it was $11 (5+3+3) per person. But here is something important... DO NOT pay more for the different bars. Just pay for the Special Cocktails. You will get everything anyway. We had people ordering all sorts of shots... tequila, whiskey, rum, you name it, and we only payed for the very lowest. Don't waste you money.!

                  Hi girls

                   

                  I got back this morning ....I'm sorry, but I am going to write a review in the next few days. As there is 6 hours time difference....I am a lil all over the place....with tiredness ...being in UK......... Girls I want you to know....

                   

                     I panicked as no one was E mailing me back.....I was stressed....There really is no need to. I had Maria Ferandez I met with her the day after I arrived and she totally exceeded what I had told her I wanted. I cried as everything was perfect,,,,beyond any expectation. These are experts and they helped me even more than I asked her.....What a lovely lady. You ladies are going to love it xxxx
