It will not be completely private. However I don't think anyone will bother you or your guests. But the Yoga Palapa is in the middle of the beach, with beach beds around it which cannot be moved. The staff do try to ask other guests to walk around the area, not through, but there will still likely be people around. However if you are using it later in the afternoon/evening, it would be almost private since most people would have left the beach by that time.

If I would have known about all this bs, on top of the ridiculous vendor fees, I may have thought twice about having a wedding there. It is such a shame because it is truely beautiful place. Any feedback would be great!!!!
We used a travel agent, and we just put a deposit against 20 rooms for our guests. We did sign a contract (with our travel agent who was a GI consultant), but our guests did not. And our guests had about 3 months to make a reservation and hold a room, and then another 6 months to pay off the balance.
