Islandgirl910, I suggest you speak with an agent about the cost of the rooms first. That seems really high and I am almost sure they would be able to get you a better rate. It pays to shop around. I am staying oceanfront for just under $200 a night. I was going to give folks the option of staying elsewhere but I decided against it. By the time they pay the fee to come onto the resort, they could have easily stayed there.

Combine that with a flight and it comes out to about $1,000 for 5 days.
My question is, in the wedding contract, the hotel states that 90% of the guest have to stay at the resort, in order for us to obtain a private reception. Is this really true?
I'd like our guests to have the flexibility of staying at another hotel, paying the $100 day pass for the wedding and just not feel so restricted if anything. We do want a private reception, don't get me wrong, but I just want to know if this rule is set in stone?
I appreciate your feedback! Thanks!
