    As for the per person charge. Yes, there is. There is a bar fee ($5 per person per hour) and then a food charge. Although it is an all inclusive, you are paying for the service and set up.
    I have heard wonderful things about the dinner that comes with the packages though, it's just not private.
    Do you think I could even plan a dinner for 75 ppl that isn't private? That seems almost silly...but I guess anything is possible in some of the huge restaurants. Do you have any idea what the per person charge is for a private dinner?

      I had the same questions and I got some answers from the WC. I will have a lot of people at my reception as well. They will block off in area in one of the a la carte restaurants (no charge) OR you can have it outside near one of the pools for additional charge per person. If it rains, they will put everyone in a conf. room (if there's availibilty). Here's some of the options for the outside dinner:

      Gala dinner:
      6 starters, 2 soups, 6 main dishes (with seafood), dessert 72 US$/pers

      BBQ dinner:
      5 starters, 5 main dishes, dessert buffet 46 US$/pers

      Mexican night:
      5 starters, 5 main dishes, dessert buffet 46 US$/pers

      Caribbean night:
      5 starters, 5 main dishes, dessert buffet 48 US$/pers

      Lobster Dinner/ Special Luxury Menu At a specialty restaurant 60 US$/pers
      At a location out of the restaurants 100US$/pers

      I can provide more info if you need it. The WC emailed me whats on the menu with the Gala, BBQ dinner etc..

      I think i am going to have the dinner in an a la carte restaurant b/c of wind, bugs etc.. The WC said since we have so many people that we have one set menu- I said that's impossible b/c not everyone wants the same entree and that's just ridiculous. She said i woul have to provide a list a head of time, 10 want chicken 10 want steak etc... You can do the same thing.
      I am going to the resort next weekend for a site inspection and to meet with the WC. i can post more when i get back.

        Thanks! What I was hoping for was a private reception at an indoor location...bummer. I agree with you about bugs and wind. I went to a restaurant in the DR during a wedding dinner (it was a blocked off section of tables) and I could hear all of their speeches and everything. So I think I'm trying to stay away from having the reception in an a la carte... But maybe the Gran Bahia has a much better set up...let me know when you get back!

          Hey girls! I just wanted to let you know that the bar setup is $5 per person for the first hour and $3 per person for each additional hour. (So two hours would work out to $8 per person).

          Cassondra, I'm sure you could see about renting the conference room, if they let people use it as back up, I'm sure they'd rent it outright.

            Well, I got engaged a month ago! And I've finally officially set the date with the Gran Bahia Akumal. DANG, they are difficult... but i don't care!
            Did you have to fill out the wedding application? Ours has income and stuff about debt/assets on it? Did you fill that out or leave it blank?

              Haha, I haven't been on in the last couple of weeks so.....

              CONGRATULATIONS!!!!


              I didn't fill out any application that had our income and assets on it. The only questions I had to answers was: Names, Wedding Date Requested, Wedding time requested, approximate # of guests, # of kids, only those sort of q's.

              What kind of application did you get

              You are doing the dinner by the pool right?

                Oh, I know why we are getting married before we actually get there but shhhh... no one knows. Hehe.

                If I were you I would just round it off. It's kind of stupid why they need to know your income anyway.

                Yeah, I'm flat out lying! I plan on putting a very low number just incase they see a high number and feel the need to rip us off!
