      I did poolside so I can only comment on that, but it was amazing. We did the dinner and everything there but you can also just do danicng after dinner there which is 10/person (I believe) that includes open bar, tables set up with white linen and candle on table. They will move your flowers to this spot from Ceremony. The DJ is $150/hour, no matter where you have your reception you will pay that for the dj, so I guess you just need to decide if you want to pay $10 per person for the poolside or beach....

        I think that Plantation is only if you are planning to do dinner and the reception there. That is $55/pp. I don't think anyone has just had a reception there. I guess you could always ask if that is an option. The firedancers might be nice on the beach, so you could do your reception at the seagrape.

          I had 34 guests at my wedding. We had dinner at Mammee Bay, which was awesome and then we booked the Disco for a private party. The DJ and bartender are included and the cost is $250. We had a GREAT time. I would recommend this option for sure.
