Hi! We had the reservation made before we left for Mexico. I gave our w/c our preferred date and time for our welcome dinner and asked what the options were. She came back stating Rodizio (The Brazilian Restaurant) at the Palace could accomodate my request. I knew we would have to pay the $15 per guest not at the Palace (probably why they offered this restuarant!!), but it was worth as it was only 4 people were not staying at the Palace, plus our guests at the Palace did not have to trek across the huge resort to get to dinner on time, and in addition everyone loved the Brazilian! The appetizer course was buffet and it was really nice, and the main course was actually 7 courses of different meat which they served right off of huge skewers, it was a lot of fun and our guests really enjoyed it. Talk about meat sweats!!
We actually had our welcome 2 days before the wedding (i did not want to be drinking the night before and I was worried about my hubby going a bit overboard with the lads) so we were missing a fewfor this dinner, but i think there were about 20 of us.
If they can't fit a huge party into a restaurant I've read online that they will section off a private area of the buffet for you.

Did you have a lot of people at yours? It seems you didn't pay for the Palace guests...were you able to just make a large reservation? Thanks!
