When we had the bonfire we did not have to pay for bar service but the reception and the bonfire were like 50 ft away from each other. Also we only paid for 1 hour but i am pretty sure it was going for almost two. If you have the bonfire a different night there really is no close by bar, i would think the one by the SSG would be the closest. I know its easy to get annoyed at all the extra costs but the staff really does a great job! Side note, when i was looking at other places, Dreams was the cheapest by far.

We are more than certain that we will go with HDC, I already contacted them and their packages seem very reasonably priced and very flexible too!
MissTaken,- wau i didn't have a clue that we will have to pay separate bar service for reception and bonfire!!!! ...I will have to double check with Yanna will it be the same for us, when we are having our reception on the beach (probably right next to bonfire), - cos that wouldn't make any sense at all!!!...
MissTaken, maybe it is worth asking Tiara about location of bonfire and if it is possible to have it any where on the beach then maybe she could arrange it to be closest to one of the bars so you and all your guests will be able to grab some drinks themselves?
