Hi Kleonne06 and LMC1
We returned Sunday and all I can say is Amazing! You will both be beyond pleased with your weddings.
Kleonne06 I know you said you booked the Catamaran, I have to tell you it was one of the most fun things we did. Side note - you have to walk into the water waste high to get onto the boat. Some people were dressed and we did not know that we had to walk into the water. No one really cared once we got started.
LMC1, if no one was at the bar they did close at 11. But if you have a bunch of people there they do stay open later for you. They have plenty of liquor in the villas so you wonâ€™t have to worry. Also my guests said the room key holders were the best!
The staff is absolutely amazing. We had 65 people and they knew every guest by name.
Good Luck next week Kleonne06!

We went with the band. They were greatâ€¦ great for dinnerâ€¦. After dinner everyone was ready to dance but they kept it very mellow and Americanized. Meaning they sang a lot of older songs like My Girl, Unchained Melody, etc. The most upbeat song was HOT HOT HOT. They did play my first dance song and they did a fabulous job. After their 3 house set a house DJ took over. They were ok, but a friend of ours actually took his lap top and took over. I canâ€™t say they were bad, because they were not, they just did not fit my crowd. Everyone still had fun, so it did not affect the reception. And they let us party until 1am with the music. Kept the bar open until 2 or 3.
We did do a fire dancer and it was entertaining. He got the crowed involved and it was only about 20 min. We also did Cuban and Jamaican cigars. That was a big hit. And we did wish lanterns. They take your group down the cliffs to set them off. It really was beautiful.
YES YES YES, it was HOT!!!!!!!!! Not really humid, just hot. You would think being Cliffside there would be a breeze but there was not. We were there for 10 days. It rained everyday in the afternoon. But not long. It moved in and out. It never affected us - we stayed in the pool, walked around etc. We had a welcome BBQ on Sunday night. About an hour in it stared to rain. They moved the entire party, food tables, steel drum band into the lobby within 10 min. It stopped within a half hour but we were fine in the lobby. A couple got married the Saturday after us. The staff watched the weather, waited to the last min to set everying up so nothing would be wet. Everything turned out perfect for her. You would have never even known it rained earlier. All I can say is donâ€™t worry about a thing because the staff bends over backwards for you. Kerri is the best!

I canâ€™t say for sure because I never asked what the band name was during the reception. I did ask Kerri to recommend a band and she said the band was booked through Moon Dance and it was â€œFront Page Bandâ€. So I assume thats who they were lol. I did not have to put a deposit for them. Other brides had written reviews and loved them. And they were good, just not what we were looking for. Did you ask for a sample of their music? Also be specific about what you want played. We never really said what we wanted them to play. The DJ was the house DJ. Just communicate exactly what songs or types of music you want played.

I just booked our wedding ad MDC for March 2013! I'm so excited!

You wonâ€™t be disappointed! It really is a phenomenal place. The staff is exceptional! Have fun planning.

MALDJ1 - Congratulations! I have a question for you. Depending on when you booked, MDC says that you have to rent a tent when you exceed over 30 people. With 65 people, did you use a tent or were you over at Annie's in open air?
