    For after dinner there is 4 options, please see below and let me know which one is better for you (all are per 30people minimun and If dont have the number is still possible as long as cover the cost of each and If have more than 30, each extra person is 15usd) :

    1. Pool party with special coctails per groups from 7:30pm to 10:30pm (3 hrs of duration) with special coctails "margaritas + pi±as coladas + sparkling wine + beers" + 2 lounge rooms + ilumination +speakers + microphone +lights + dj services and very nice decorated with chairs and high tables is 1´530usd,
    2. Pool party with special coctails per groups from 7:30pm to 10:30pm (3 hrs of duration) with special coctails "margaritas + pi±as coladas + sparkling wine + beers" + ilumination +speakers + microphone +lights + dj and very nice decorated with chairs and high tables is 1´080usd,
    3. Pool party with special coctails per groups from7:30pm to 10:30pm (3 hrs of duration) with special coctails "margaritas + pi±as coladas + sparkling wine + beers" + speaker + microphone and very nice decorated with chairs and high tables is 870usd,
    4. Free get together by the lobby bar where the drinks are included, just please remember we cannot book areas, tables or services here because is part of the all inclusive

     

    Wow!! that is insane, I was never told that we would have to pay $15 per person after 30..we have 55 people coming to our wedding..that is an insane cost!! glad you were able to get that info..deffantly have some thinking to do! We were never going to do the dinner, just the reception afterwards and NO DJ..Someone else on here said they are no longer accepting the DJ into the resort so I am a bit surprised they are even adding that onto the packages...

    We have 55 people coming too. And we are also doing the reception but with just our iPod, no DJ. It's a bit more than we were expecting to pay. Kind of silly that they have that extra charge...

      I got my prices as of 2/22/2013, my prices were all higher than what you are showing right now, and I'm at the same resort as you too. Hmm...

            Yeah that was my price.  I'm under the impression she screwed up when giving me that price...

                I am getting married May 6 2014 at Bahia Tulum and would be interested in sharing the cost for a photographer!

                 

                I cannot get a reply on costs for the wedding. I have all the basic packages but that's not what we want. We want a room, decorated, with a mic and speaker and dinner/drinks for the night. Does anyone have any information? I'm looking at the poolside dinner/reception just because it's been spoken about on here but wondering if anyone has that information? Adding it up on what they gave me was going to be something crazy like 14,000! Most hotels have have package upgrades available...we do not want a la carte. 

                 

                Thanks girls!

                  Do you know what cost for a poolside dinner, then reception WITHOUT DJ is? Does anyone know if the speakers hook up to an iPod?

                  Ladies this is a previous post from Yelena18 Hi ladies, I have posted yesterday, but for some reason my comment would not show up, so thought I would try again. As many others getting married here, we have booked DJ Bob for our upcoming wedding on October 17, 2013. Maria had instructed us to book him as he was the only DJ allowed into the resort; however, I had just received an email from her yesterday stating that the resort policies have changed and currently, there are no external suppliers allowed in, including DJ Bob. I am stressing as we have already paid and also it's only a month and a half away from our wedding, so we are stumped how this can be changed once it was already approved and what we are supposed to do during our 5 hour dinner and reception ( we had booked him for the whole time since we are having a private poolside dinner/reception). I wanted to see if any other brides were relayed this information and are aware of this! We are waiting for her reply in the meantime as well. Thanks in advance :-) I think the "DJ Services" means like speakers and set up stuff for an IPOD...I don't think you can have the DJ anymore according to this post? I might be wrong, I am still waiting on a reply from Maria who i emailed back in June!

                    Jazmin gave me prices with and without the dj. It is 1080 for the basic bar with the dj and for the basic bar without a dj (just speakers) its 870. Check a few posts of mine above - I copies it from her email. :)
