Okay so we have been talking back and forth about how the beach location told some of us that we have to rent the steakhouse and what not based on numbers.. and didn't communicate to us that we could not have a semi private dinner... When this was all happening, and i was told the same thing by Silvia, i emailed her back asking why we couldn't have a semi private dinner, being that there was no mention of that in any of our paperwork.
She just wrote me back.. a One liner email stating the following:
Of course you can have it semi private for 1 hour and a half for a cost of $400usd.
Can any past or current brides please tell me if you are also being charged 400 USD to have a semi private dinner?? All of the paper work i have states that a semi private dinner is free?!?!? are they that hard up for money, or what is going on? This is soo frustrating.. and i am not really sure what to do here... This is what i responded:
I thought that it was free to have a semi private dinner? I didn't read anywhere that there is a charge to it now. Is this something new?
I thought we could have the following based on all of the paper work i received from you:
Semi private dinner for our 38 guests (FREE)
bonfire on the Beach for reception for 2 hours (500.00)
DJ for the bonfire reception (150.00 per hour x 2 hours = 300.00)
Open bar for everyone (over 15 people included in the bonfire price = 7.00 per head)
Why am I now being told there is a 400.00 fee to have a semi private dinner?
I am sorry for getting upset here, but we are one month away from my wedding and it seems that all of these things are "coming up" that we were not told about... Why would i have to pay 400.00 USD to sit and eat dinner with other hotel guests that are not with our wedding? That does not make sense to me..
so basically you are telling me that our options are to either pay 400.00 for a semi private dinner.. or pay 800 to rent the steakhouse.. and that is our only option to accommodate my wedding for dinner?
