    Hey Ladies :)  I have booked the Palace for April 25th and I'm pretty excited.  Does anyone know what package you are required to purchase in order to have your reception in one of the grills though?  I really want to do the mint breeze package so that I don't get dinged $66 extra per person above the 15 included in the strawberry passion package .... but the only issue is that I don't want to use a banquet room.  Has anyone else had this kind of conversation with their WC?  Having a hard time getting responses back.  Thanks!

      Hi Cheepers,

      So to have your reception in on of the open air grills you can either go with the Strawberry Passion package and yes after 15 people then you pay $66 per person. Or if you are booked with Transat holidays they have a Euphoira package and you can up grade to have the open air grill for $27.50 per person. So for me we did that and that package I think includes 24 people which works better for us as we are going to have about 21 ppl. This package is $1500 and you pay your TA. Not sure where you are from USA, or Canada but check it out... they are different packages meaning you do get more with the Strawberry Passion but you can always upgrade what you want as we are doing! ;)

      Hope this helps. Carla

        I was married there in May, you need the Mint package or higher.  That will include the grill or the outdoor wedding.

            Did anyone try out the Jaguar Night Club?  If so, how did you like it?  What type of music did they play.  My travel planner recommended it as a Wedding Night out get together for my wedding party.

              The music is pretty good, but the club is hit or miss.  It really depends on who is staying at the resort and goes there that night.  Sometimes it's totally empty.  One night they played all Mexican music and seemed like everyone in there was Mexican, too. :)  They play requests if you want to give them.  It's the only place on the property to dance.  The only other options for drinking into the late hours would be one of the lobby bars...they are set up more like lounges...and they are air conditioned.

                Is there a DJ? Or is it a live band? And by requests, I'm assuming I can ask for particular American songs?  With our package we get 50% off for the wedding party in the VIP lounge so I'm hoping it's not too expensive to take everyone. We will have about 35- 40 people, so I'd be ok with it being empty! Mor fun for us! lol

                  Thanks Carla...that's really good to know.  Gabriela told me that I could upgrade the mint breeze package but it's $27.50 per person, and then $24.00 for each person above 20.  I'm going to check out whether the Euphoria package is a better deal, because you get the upgraded menu and a few more amenities and whatnot :)

                    I'm right there with you I'm planning my wedding for April 23rd and I want the Strawberry Package.  From what I've learned from a friend who was married there she had to suck it up and pay the extra per person. :(

                      No they are allowed in La Luna told me it was $500 fee but it looks like it has been $300 and you need to pay ahead of the wedding or they won't let them in.
