They do have a sound system and a mic for the ceremony. Ours was in the Gazebo, but I'm sure they have it for the beach ceremonies as well, and it was easy for everyone to hear.
The X-Lounge for cocktail hour is beautiful and they add high top tables for you. You won't need additional chairs as there are plenty of beds and couches around. I'm sure you can decorate if you want to but it really isn't necessary, and it will be windy being on the beach. They can bring your flowers from the ceremony to the reception though. (and then to your room after the wedding!)
We did not use a dance floor and when we asked about it, they said it wasn't really necessary. Do ask for curtains so it can define the space for you. (I posted some pics up here that shows that) We had also asked about rose petals on the dance floor area, but apparently they are slippery and some mishaps have occurred....not advisable! Dancing on the concrete floor was perfect, and people even had their shoes off. My 2 cents, save your $ for something else...like some spa time!!

We are doing the ceremony on the beach and will likely have a good amount of people - maybe around 60. Is it hard to hear the officiant and the bride and groom? Did anyone use microphone/speakers? I hate when you go to a ceremony and you can't hear what anyone is saying, so I wanted to check on this. I asked Nayeli almost 2 and a half weeks ago, but you know how it goes.
Also, does anything need to be rented (tables, chairs, linens) for cocktail hour at the X lounge? Did any past brides decorate there? It looks pretty as is, but wanted to check so it's not a surprise.
Any past brides who had their reception at the CECO terrace, did you rent a dance floor or just go with the concrete floor that's there? Is a dance floor necessary?
Appreciate input so much!
