Mrs. Shoreytobe,

 

The dancefloor will not fit where the tables &  chairs are located in the Chillout - what they did for us was set it up in front of the club. You probably can't see it in our photos because of the angles they are taken on, but if you check out the photo of the front of the Chill Out you can get an idea of how it might look (and they actually dug into the sand so that the dancefloor was level with the ground - which I loved). Additional, more casual seating was provided around the dancefloor for those who needed a break. 

 

I read through the other posts and noticed that you are considering the Sunset Gazebo. It is definitely more private than the Grand Riviera Gazebo and an added bonus, if you book the Chill Out, is that it is actually located right next door.

 

Kind Regards,

Koren

Mrs Shoreytobe,

 

When I read your post I was picturing the dancefloor up in the seating area in addition to your other tables. On second thought, you could probably fit it there, but it means that your guests' tables would be further away from you. I'm not sure if you've seen the layout to the Chill Out, but typically there are a couple of tables near the headtable, and then if you require them, additional tables are placed in the attached gazebo-like decks off the main deck. Sorry for any confusion!

 

Cheers,

Koren

you are so helpful, thanks so much for your clear and thorough response!!!!!! I am really hoping this option may work for us! Do u happen to recall what cost was associated with ur dancefloor and music (or did u do an iPod?).

Hi There, We just received the first glimpse of our photos, some of which include pictures of the Chill Out lounge. I would highly recommend the chill out package - the venue, the food, the ambiance -- everything about it was wonderful -- and worth the price. If you'd like to take a look, our slideshow is up on the photographers' website: http://delsolphotography.com/riviera-maya-wedding-grand-sunset-princess-kc-05082013/  And on that note, if anyone is looking for a photographer, Del Sol was amazing to work with. They have a number of talented photographers, and we went with Juan. He was absolutely fantastic! Best of luck with your planning! Koren
Thank you for sharing your amazing pictures! I am getting married on jan 15th, 2014 in the riviera gazebo as well with a beach reception (outside of the chill out lounge) and your pics really help to visualize everything! Thank you again :)

Has anyone had a wedding/is anyone plannig one where u ARE NOT using the chill out lounge and instead using the restaurant dinner that is included in the wedding packages? If so, did u organize a dance floor party somewhere after the dinner in the restaurant? I would love to have dinner and reception party in CO lounge but 100 per person will be too much for us (with around 40-50 guests). My hope though is that we would still be able to have a dance after the restaurant dinner, so if any of you have organized this instead of chill out lounge for whole night, plz share :) THANKS!

There is a possibility of having a private beach cocktail/reception after the dinner....but I am unsure how much it cost....if you read back several brides have opted for that options.

 

best of luck.

Hi there,

 

  We are getting married in July and are doing dinner at "La Vaquera" (spelling???) followed by a cocktail reception on the beach.  It cost $25/person for 2 hours.  We also are paying $560 for the audio equipment for this time, which includes an IPOD hook up.  We were just going to bring our own but we were worried it might not be loud enough for the beach so decided to pay the extra money.

I like that this gazebo seems more private. Do you have to pay for them to add the white fabric at the front? I think I want the fabric but will try to save on cost of flowers.
The fabric comes with the rental of the sunset gazebo. The flower decorations on the gazebo may be included in your package depending upon which one you get. I kind of like the look of the gazebo without the decorations as seen here: http://www.weareyourphotogs.com/5322/we-are-jen-jean-claude-pt-1 These pictures are some of the bet I have seen of the location. It really gives you a good idea of the event space. If you rent the sound system I believe there is an option for an iPod dock but they suggest you back up your playlist on cd just in case. We are getting married in November and we chose this location with reception at the chill out lounge. We have been to this resort and absolutely loved it. The chill out lounge is worth the extra money if you are havin trouble deciding.

    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
