It was at the Shadows restaurant and our group (29 ppl) had a section upstairs in the restaurant and it was great!! There was one other group upstairs but the way they had us set up, it was pretty much like we had the place to ourselves.
I haven't had a chance to write a full review yet from our big day but I would recommend that you save your money and go with the reception in the package. If you get Roy as a waiter, he was awesome and he serenaded me twice....that was a nice touch.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. I would love to share any info I can from our experience....

Sorry for taking so long to reply. There was a menu for our group to choose from - Chicken; shrimp or steak were the main meal options. Our reception was at 6:30-7pm and we were probably done by about 8:30-9pm or so. We were served everything and our guests were served the main course but had to go get their starter stuff - salad /soup etc from the buffet.; which was on the main floor. We had 2 servers with our group so there were no complaints about a long wait.
Everyone really enjoyed the meal and for dessert, we had wedding cake. We did the cake cutting and then they sliced it up for everyone. We chose the chocolate cake and it was good - nothing too fancy but it was tasty.
The TruColors photographer will take pics of the cake cutting but if there is a particular picture you want, make sure you tell them. The guy who did our cake pics had some cool ideas so some of those pix turned out better than the standard cake cutting shots.
Hope that helps....if I can answer anything else, let me know....

i'm getting amrried at the RIU Negril on August 14th. when i asked Dionne about a private reception she originally told me it would be $500 for 2 hours and $1000 for 4 hours. when i confirmed what i wanted she told me the prices increased too. i told her what she originally quoted me and she said she will honor that since that is what she mentioned first. i suggest if you really want that private reception - push for the originally quoted price. and if you have the email where she quoted you a $1000 for 4 hours - i would send it to her again. that's what i did to her and she gave in. they cannot switch up the price on you whenever they want. they have to honor the price they originally quoted.
