I think you need to think about what kind of reception you want to have.
You can go to the restaraunt but its not private and you can't have dancing. However, you don't have to pay extra.
If you want an outdoor reception you can either do beach or poolside. Beach is obviously beautiful but you do have to put up with wind and loud noises from waves crashing. Poolside is still outside with less wind and noise but not as private.
Then the ballrooms you get private reception that is indoors. Don't have to worry about the weather.
So ultimately you just need to decide whats important to you and which type of reception you would like best. Good luck!

As far as I understand (for a group of 20 or so people), I can consider a reception on the beach, poolside or in one of the restaurants. I am at the beginning stages of my wedding planning and will put putting a deposit down for DPB within the next week or so. Any thoughts or advice or pictures that would help decide would be greatly appreciated!! How did you all decide?
