    can anyone tell me if the italian buffet is really good for the dinner... we really wanted to have a private reception but it is too costly. are you really separated from other guests in the restaurant? we are hoping to have a dinner reception there followed by a private cocktail party on the beach..

My fiance and I met there when we were 12 and 13 years old so figured it was the perfect place to start our life together. Others feel differently but oh well.

         

        I know you guys were talking about photography, have you had Maria email you any pictures done by the resort photographer? I wasn't all that impressed but then again I am all about my pictures! But I did find Octavio Montes who has amazing work with a quarter of the price of all the others plus I think you get the disk and printouts. Resort photographer just seemed pretty expensive to me also for what you get.

         

        Hope this helps ladies and I look forward to chattin' with yall!

          If you have less then 20 guests, you can have dinner to any a la carte restaurant. We had to choose the Italian buffet, to tell you the truth I wasn t crazy about it, the food was ok.. And for any additional guest, you will need to get them a day pass of 77$ US, email Maria, she can give you all the info

            dreamyeyez- yes his website is octaviomontes.com. I do not remember if his prices are on his site so email me him if you need to. I can also try to find them in my emails if you need me to.

             

            What are the details on a private cocktail reception?

                Does anyone know if you can get a screen and lcd projector if you book a private reception on the beach or in the royal palapas?

                If so, do you know the cost?

                thanks!

                  hey..

                  they sound pretty lenient on having what you like in a private event on the beach. They will probably tell you its okay as long as you find a vendor that can do that for you ..then you would pay the extra fees. Email Maria at weddings.playacar@sandoshotels.com :)

                      thanks Sash..

                       

                      private cocktail reception is $10 per person/per hour.. for a standard open bar not included international or premium drinks. I can email you the info if you like..not sure how to post here :) 

                       we are thinking of just having the semi-private dinner at the italian buffet followed by a dance open bar for 3 hours, cocktail party on the beach (renting a dancefloor, DJ, and lounge furniture). It saves us alot of money as opposed to the private dinner on the beach!
