ROR Poolside Reception

Recommended Posts

Ok ladies... yet another question about the poolside reception. Did you have any issues with mosquitos during the time you were poolside? Since they only put one candle on each table, I am thinking about bringing some extra and was going to get citranella (or however u spell it) if buys were an issue. Thanks!

ONe thing I don't understand is that this is an all-inclusive, so why aren't the drinks included anyway at dinner? i.e. Open bar = 10 per person? Also, I was told by my travel agent that I could not or would not be contacted by Chandlyn until at least 2 months before the wedding date...but it appears that some people have booked their receptions already a year in advance? Yikes, I'm so behind!

The $10 charge for open bar is for you to have your own private bartender. My understanding, from what other brides have posted in their reviews, is that there are not any bars that are really close to the pool. The poolside bar closes when the pool closes. So, your guests would have to go for a walk to get a drink, plus wait for a drink if others (not in your wedding party) are in line for one.

 

Definitely email Chandlyn with your preferences when u decide. She will send u a confirmation email stated what you have booked. The earlier the better. You can always change your mind, if another option is still available.

No isues with mosquitos. I think I got 3 bites, and I can't even tell you where that came from...no one else got bitten - but I am always the one getting the bites! I did not wear bug spray once, although I did bring it.

Scott-Pierre is correct, you are actually paying to have a private bartender keep a bar open late for you and your wedding party. The pool and beach bars I think close at 6pm. Otherwise, your guests would have to walk all the way up to the lobby bars or sports bars, which get busy at night with the shows. It was really nice to have a bar right there! We did book a year in advance, but my TA works closely with the resort and wanted my plans set in stone for me.

The pool is closed. From what other people have said there is a walkway that goes right by the pool, so there is a chance that people will be walking by, but I doubt you will even notice.
