Anybody ever been to La Gondola or Bugambilias? I just need a place that is not too loud or too noisy.
Unfortunately the "restaurant of choice" isn't exactly what it means. Here are all of the restaurants that were listed in my packet for the Free Dinner Reservation that held over 10. The list also included 5 restaurants that seat "Up To 10". Hope this helps. elefant.gif

Hi there! I am also leaning towards The Carbeno restaurant, but it is an al la carte. Was this an issue for you to book for a larger group? We have 26 including B&G.

They have a 10 person limit at that restaurant (for the group dinner reservtion at least). You can just show up with your group & try to get seated together, but if you're trying to use your group dinner reservation that's included in the wedding packages, they probably won't let you go to the Caribbean restaurant with that large of a group. I asked if we could have it there if we were willing to split into multiple tables, and my WC still told me it wasn't an option.

We just returned from our wedding at MP a few weeks ago.

 

We had our wedding dinner at Arrecifes - Nizuc Side. We ate out on the tarrace and it was perfect. The food was all right...not the best food at the MP, but we really enjoyed it.

 

Our favorite restaurant we went to twice while we were there was Mo Mo No Ha Na - Oriental A la Carte. The food was wonderful!

We also had our dinner reservation at Arrecifes - Nizuc Side. We had an outside reception for our wedding, so we used the dinner reservation a few nights before it, we were all going to CoCo Bongo so I thought it would be a good starting point. We too were outside on the terrace - it was soo nicely set up. I loved this restaurant, I don't even eat that much meat!lol I just thought it was great fun with the red and green cards, because some people did give up really quick, like myself, after one chicken portion!haha Like I said, I only had chicken, but I thought it was done beautifully, and I've said before, if we ever return I'd be heading straight to Arrecifes!

Have you been assigned your wedding co-ordinator yet? I think we must have booked ours about 5-8 weeks before the wedding, but it was only upon her request we done it.

Do you know which gazebo/section your getting married at? I'd recommend the gazebo at nicuz, this is the one with the long walkway. We were originally booked into the one at the sunrise section, and just felt it was a little crowded. There is a patio area right outside it, and just being picky I know, but the wood slats on the outside of the gazebo aren't painted white, we just didn't like the look of it. Anyway, if you were at the nizuc one, there is a barbeque set up by the pool, just off the side of the entertainment bit. Can't remember what it's called, but i'm sure they could set up a table of 4 there for you, overlooking the beach? There was a very small gazebo feature next to this too, I think just for people to laze about at...surely they'd be accommodating with just the 4 of you, and set up in there for you? Worth a try asking, even wait til your on-site, cos then you'd kinda have your own private little area.

They are very accommodating, and I'm sure with your numbers they be even more so. Do you know who your co-orindator is yet?
