I've been talking to Nelly - I finally got a hold of her (thank you so much for offering your help)! I'm making the arrangements now for our ceremony & dinner. Our ceremony is for 4pm on the 11th. I'm going to see if I can book the English patio for dancing but not sure if we can. We have 24 guests (26 of us in total) but we may have a few others join last minute. I don't have the exact details on our flights yet but we are definitely leaving on the 7th and departing on the 14th. Getting very excited - 59 more days!

So happy to hear that Nelly has been in touch. I have been pondering the English Patio as well, I just want to make sure we are able to have our first dance together as husband and wife, and a couple of other dances for the family. We actually went down to Panama a few years ago for my friends wedding and they just did their first dance and a couple of other dances right in the restaurant so to save some money we might just do it this way as well. We are just going with the free wedding package, the only thing that I really wanted was a good photographer, so we decided to go with Alec & T, and I am so excited, they take beautiful pictures and I can not wait to work with them. I to am getting very excited for the wedding, now that we are in the planning stages. This forum is so great, it is so nice to have people to talk to who are going through the same things.

Just wanted to give you my feedback on the English Patio as I was considering it all. It is very pretty and nice and private, what I didn't like is you still have to pay for a DJ and bartender on top of the $500 site fee, it is ourdoors so if it is as hot as it was on my day (at least 100 degrees) you need some relief from the heat and you can only have it until 10pm.
I decided to go with the disco as we could have it later, still private, cheaper and air conditioned!!!
You cannot have music or dancing at any of the restaurants unless you rent the whole restaurant but then you might as well go with the English patio or the disco. Hope this helps!

She was great, she replied to me right away. I think if you email her and tell her you want to start planning now she will be fine with that! If not, don't worry, it is very well organized when you get down there, we finalized everything then, the only thing I did well in advance was book the steak house terrace and the disco so no one else could book it!

You will have to use the hotel photographer, as of September 29th this year the hotel now has a contract with Mango Productions and they are no longer allowing outside photographers on site for weddings. Unless they have changed this in the last month. Good luck with the planning.
