Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

T1219, Thanks for the review.  My wedding is Feb 4th.  I spoke with the new coordinator this weekend, Victoria, yes she actually called me on the phone.  We were able to finalize alot of the details.  One thing I wanted to get your feedback on was the reception.  I also hired DJ Doremixx, do you remember who the DJ was?  Also, your reception was four hours.  Did you pay extra for that extra hour?  In the package, three is included.  Victoria told me that in order to extend the reception, there was a charge of $26 per person plus 11% tax and 15% gratuituty which comes out to be 33 per person.  We have 65 guests, so thats like $2000 per hour, which is outrageous!!  Did you pay that or find a loophole?  Thanks for any info!

we just paid the per hour posted rate, USD 300 and extedned our DJ time to 5 hours (we had to end it at 11 pm, as that is when the resorts quite hour kicks in). Havent seen the price list for 2011, but the 2010 just said USD 300 plus tax per hour for DJ min. 3 hours I believe. USD 2K per hour is just insane! so good luck with that one

OK, so you can just pay the DJ fee and not for the staff.  What Victoria told me was that we would also have to pay for the staff to remain there.  Was the bar still there for your guests after three hours?

Oh I see what you mean. No the staff left after 3 hours! Well maybe a bit after.. they did go around and take last drink requests then. The way I see it, after 3 hours, your guests can literarly walk 50 feet to the resort bar and get their own drink, people would have been drinking all night long with drinks still on the table etc. that I dont think it really inconvenienced anyone. The staff packed up the buffett but kept the cake and dessert set up, it was just fine for us.
