    Samira (and others who asked about this)- If you have your reception at Chilli's, you can have the buffet dinner without an extra cost; however, if you want a sitdown dinner it is $25 extra per person.

    I'm actually a little irrtated though, because Ael just got back to me and said that even through we're paying extra for the menu, we HAVE TO CHOOSE ONE MAIN COURSE for everyone. If someone doesn't eat meat, there is pasta they can have, but I'm still disappointed that EVERYONE can't just order what they'd like from the menu.

So if you have less than 60 people you will be at Botogo and do not have to pay this.. that's my understanding anyway.
      ok that makes more sense because I have never read about the $25 up until now.

        wow that really sucks you are paying extra and they are still capping you to one main course!! I know the resort is great and all teh brides have had wonderful experience but its kinda unfair the rules they have it doesn't make sense.

          Thank you for clearing that up=--- I'm irritated for you!!! I mean- I kind of get the alcohol thing- if they only serve beer and wine normally then whatever- but FOOD restrictions!! It's a freaking restaurant!! Doesn't make sense..... not to make you stress or anything-- sorry- I'm sure it will all turn out great.

            Thanks for sharing my irritation girls, lol! And you're so right Jannae...it's a freaking restaurant...they have more people at each sitting every night than I do in my group that order off of the menu every single night...so I don't get it! I guess I will see what happens when I have my meeting with her.

              Katie-I would pull out your paperwork and ask where it says this? I have the 2010 information and it doesn't say it anywhere in there.

                I was given a fact sheet from the groups department with all the pricing options for private versus semi-private functions, cocktail events and all options for 2011. It does list all of these fees in it...probably won't help all of you 2010 brides but if anyone would like to see it please feel free to email me and I'll send it your way...
