Originally we were going to pay the $30 day pass fee for people staying at the Beach (they need to pay that in order to go over to the Suites for the wedding day), but when it started to look like most people will be at the Beach, we figured it won't be worth it. There are very few differences in terms of the wedding itself - the only one that really affects us is the fact that at the Beach you need min. 40 people to rent out a restaurant for the private ceremony. At the Suites, some of the restaurants have a lower number requirement. Other than that, I didn't see any major differences in the wedding plans or prices. Hope this helped.

I guess I can't get my head around why there would be an open bar charge that is per person, since it is included in staying with the hotel. I can almost understand paying for a bartender. Maybe it's just me.
Do any brides know what the price is for open bar at the suites for a private reception.
The open bar costs $7/person/hour for domestic drinks, and $10 for international. I know it doesn't make sense, but it is what it is.
