We had 51 people total and I did the free package...so I only got 16 (which you have to include the bride and groom in the 16 - which leaves you only 14) free guests, and I had to pay $25/guest for each additional. I had one guest that showed up (didn't rsvp, didn't call, text, send a telegram, nothing...just showed up) so Chandlyn actually let that one ride and I didn't have to pay for her. So I paid for all the guests, $220 for the minister and legal documents, $250 for gazebo, and $40 for the extra cake layer (which I wish I hadn't did now, we had too much leftover). That was it. We did Dolce which accomodated 51 people in the room, but I can't say if 70 will fit in the room because they use the long rectangle tables. I had 7 tables total and it was little room for any more.. If you do the grill, it's more open but it's hot as HECK and the bugs was yuky. The food was good in both though.

Did they have any hidden fees that came out after the fact? So far 70 people are booked to go and Chandlyn has said I have to close down the restaurant at a price of $2500.00 plus pay $30 per person after 30 people because of the large amount of people going. Has anyone had the same problem? Everytime I turn around there seems to be a charge for this and a charge for that! Originally it was just the one fee of $2500.00. A month later when i messaged to confirm this I now have to pay the $30 dollars per person too! I'm scared to ask if it covers the alcohol too or if that is extra as well! For an all inclusive resort they sure have a lot of hidden charges. If anyone can help bring me up to date on all the charges that would be great!
