    Hey ladies, I am renting out the Dolce vita for my dinner and reception. I was just curious for anyone who has already been there, what the grill resaurant was like and how you thought it would be for a private recetion. Just wondering if it might be too big (i will have 50-75 people) or if there are seperate rooms for a dinner / dance like in dolce vita. thanks!

      I wanted to share a company with people, I bought some necklaces, you can get sand dollars and starfishes, they are nice and go great with the beachy theme and nice for little presents for people:

          for an "ALL INCLUSIVE" Resort.. I don't think we should have to Pay Extra for Booze that is Free Flowing any other time of the Trip.. This is what I am not understanding!!

              I totally agree and now that I read 15 pp per hour that's 30 bucks per person times however many peope go. That's really pricey. I am really thiking I will buy booze and mix and serve ourselves if possible still talking to the fiance on that one.

I have set my time for 4:00 and my reception for 6:00 and I a, wandering if that's enough time for the ceremony, toast , cake cuttting, and pictures at the resort and on the beach? I have been thking of trying to move my ceremony or dinner bu another half hour what do you think?

                Here are some pix from our reception. It was just dancing, but we hired the dj and bartenders. Hope it helps!

                The view from the gazebo....it was a beautiful night!

                ACW,

                When we met with Beverly down there she told us that we could pay $20 for the 2hrs and only had to pay for 1/2 the ppl....well not even. We had 59 of us and they charged us for 25...You can only have the gazebo for 2 hrs. (8:30-10:30) because then the dj has to go to the disco and Beverly said they dont want to disturb the other guest with the sound of music...

                My understanding of this is your not paying for the booze but rather paying for the extra staff required to be there.

                  That's correct - you're actually paying for the bartenders, not the booze.  And I've been to a few other DW at other resorts, and this is standard....  Not just a GBP thing...  It stinks, but that's just how it is.......
