    Hey ladies! I am trying to get our rehearsal dinner together. I am wondering what restaurant at the resort would be the best place to host the dinner. We will probably have about 25-30 guests. Any other suggestions regarding the rehearsal dinner would be very much appreciated!!!

    um, to be honest we didn't want to pay an extra set up fee for the rehearsal dinner, so what we did is we had all our guests (about 35) all meet at El Patio. The servers put together one giant loooong table for us near the back and we did it there. It was actually perfect. Because El Patio was mostly buffet it was pretty easy to get food and talk etc.

      We did ours non-private also - we just went to Portofino early (6pm) and got 3 tables of 8. It was a little different for us since there was the hurricane, so Portofino was the only restaurant open other than the indoor buffet, and it wasn't serving Italian food that night. But the food was delicious and we were on the patio so we were basically the only people back there. It was perfect.

        I got married at Dreams PV and also did not pay for a private dinner. The WC reserved tables for us at the Mexican Fiesta night-time event and then we paid for a bonfire on the beach with a pinata, cake and smores afterwards. I had a blast and all of the guests loved the bonfire!

            I had way too many people for a impromtu dinner (60 total) , So on Wed night we just met all our guests at 8pm at rondevous bar in the lobby, it was nice as people ate on thier own and just had a place to meat after.

            Then on Thursday we did a private event on the beach ($29pp) and it was the best food we had of the whole trip ( carribean themed menu). People RAVED about it it was pretty awesome.

              Thanks for all of the input ladies! Its good to know that everyone had such a great experience! I want to try and keep expenses as low as I can so the casual dinners at the resort sound perfect, however I may have to splurge and do the bonfire! That sounds great! Thanks again everyone!

                  For my daughter's wedding at Dreams PV, we had a private dinner set up by one of the pools. It was really nice that we were separate for the crowds. They had it decorated nicely (Mexican theme). It was a buffet and we had our own bartender. Good luck!

                    I think it's kinda weird that you have to pay for a private dinner when the resort is all inclusive. I think the buffet is a great idea!
