    We are trying to decide which restaurant to book at the Paradisus Punta Cana for our reception. We definitely want to be on the beach and will be about 50 people. We may decide to do the beach reception but would rather have a restaurant right now. Does anyone know which restaurants there have beach views?

      Marino is your only beach view restaurant. I'd really recommend a beach reception privatized with palm fronds over the Marino. It's the lunch buffett restaurant and is huge, so privatizing your reception there will be costly.

      Also check with the Gabi Beach Bar in the Reserve. It's not on the ocean, but does have a beautiful beach.

        I checked the Gabi because it looks beautiful but it is $10K to privatize it! I would like the beach reception but they charge an extra $500-$900 for a dance floor.

        I am not sure what we are going to do. It's confusing when you can't picture it.

            Jess, thank you so much! That will be really helpful. When are you getting married? What do you think you are going to do for your reception?

              We're getting married on May 22, 2009. I have no clue about the reception. That's why we are going in January to see our options. I love what Tami did the beach reception with the palm fronds but my concern was the dance floor I have no clue yet as to what we're going to do.......But not worry, I'll find out everything when I'm there and let you know....

                amyblant,

                found something helpful for you, you probably have it already. I forgot I had it. Miguelina from the resort sent it to me....

                Happy Planning

                  No, no. The dance floor they are quoting you is a portable dance floor that they place on the beach.

                  The area of the beach that we used is in front of the Scuba store on the beach, and where the volleyball net is during the day. It comes complete with a "deck" area that was our dance floor. It was awesome, and no extra charge for that.

                  Here are some pics of us on the dance floor, etc to give you an idea. I hope this helps you visualize. It was PERFECT. Let me know if you want more pics of this...

                  You can see the dance floor in this pic just behind the cake table that they brought out.

                  Fun on the dance floor ... (you can see the closed scuba hut behind it .. and shoes in the sand in front of it)

                  Here it's still daylight so hopefully this shows you better what I'm talking about. :-)

                    Thank you Jessica, I do have that link. It is helpful to picture everything isn't it!

                    Tami, that is a huge help! Of course they don't offer up that information. That looks perfect for a dance floor.

                      I saw a reception with the Aqua package and it was pretty - but it was set-up right next to the Gabi Bar (which is open to all guests) and was not really "private" IMHO. Several of our guests commented how they liked how ours was private as opposed to being able to see everything going on at the reception just down the beach. (Their reception was going on at the same time as ours, but b/c of our set-up, we never would have known).

                      Just something to think about, but then again I'm partial to my own wedding set-up, lol. :-)
