    Thus far, the email response time from PG WC is very slow. My first email went unanswered thus after a week I sent a subsequent email. This has happened several times now where I have to send a second email stating I still have not received a reply to my previous email. This is very frustrating as I can't decide on a venue if it's taking a week to receive an answer to simple questions. I was planning on going w/ Playa Grande, but I may end up going w/Sunset da Mona Lisa or Dreams now.

      Hi Kate,

      Thanks for the advice! I sent an email stating I was considering other venues. I added that we will be in Cabo next month for a site visit. This seemed to prompt more expeditious replies. :-)

      I read you had the Filet Mignon and that it was very good. We're deciding between the Filet Migon or the Lobster from the gala dinner menu. Did you have just the filet or did you try the lobster too?

      We're considering the oceanfront terrace for the ceremony. However, the terrace appears quite large in pictures. It's a small wedding of only 16-18 people total including bride/groom and we're concerned the large terrace will overwhelm the small number of chairs. What do you think?

      Also, I saw the terrace area where you had you reception dinner and it looked absolutely beautiful. Do you think the area is too large for a smaller group of only two tables with 8 or 9 people per table?

      Thanks!!
      Michelle

        The ocean front terrace is great. I loved the little gazebo for dancing and it made great for pictures.
        I don't think it is too big at all--and I loved that it was right in front of the water. You will definitely be able to tell when you get there. And I would try to have everyone at two tables--it will make it way more intimate and I think the PG can seat 10 to a table.

        The filet w/shrimp sounds good. I may have been given different menus bc chicken isn't offered on any of them. My dinner menu choices are: Filet, lobster, shrimp, prime rib, or lamb. WC seems to be less flexible w/me...she said no substitutions of items from the menus. She added that I had to go w/everything on the menu or order from the Brigantine (sp?) a la carte menu, ugh.

        I'm happy to hear the ocean front terrace isn't too big. Originally it was going to be on the sand, but we're concerned groom's mom may have mobility issues w/the sand.

        Thanks for all of the info. :-)

          You have PM.

              Hi!

              Playa Grande is a nice location for a wedding and its so close to down town that you can go walking to the Marina and bars. I want to share with you a recent wedding I had there:
