        On average, how much are you saving by having your reception here vs your resort? $1,000s? Base on pictures, the place is beautiful. I'm torn though. This place and the possibility of inviting more for less is the only reason I'm considering PC. Otherwise I would choose a location where the majority of my family have never visited.

          I did a breakdown and I'm not saving. At the hotel (Bahia) I'd pay $7000 for about 30-40 guests but I'd be stuck with limited meal options, restrictions on locations to have the ceremony and receptions, restrictions on day of week and time of day of the ceremony, extra fees to bring in an outside dj or photographer... tons of fine print. I'm estimating $9500 at Jellyfish for a completely customized experience for a very important event. By the looks of it my decor, cake, DJ, food, photographer etc will be better at Jellyfish. That $9500 includes a photographer and videographer, DJ w MC, open bar etc and tons of privacy and intimacy which is priceless.

            I am not sure what we saved bc I didn't look into.it.once we found jellyfish...Asha said it best! Jellyfish had no restrictions & 100% customized, along with better food & drink than at resorts, better atmosphere and privacy etc etc. I know the packages at our resort were more expensive and included less with a lot of restrictions.

                This thread has been invaluable!

                 

                I am newly engaged and always knew I wanted a destination wedding. I have been scouring g this forum since I found it during a research on a potential resort. And then I found this gem of a thread and knew that Jellyfish was the venue I have always dreamt about.

                 

                I am booked for my September 2015 date on a weekend. :) Mayte told me she was already at 75% for 2015. So glad I was able to get my date!

                    Hi Ana, Jellyfish was a bit more expensive than the resort (Majestic Colonial). But the resort did 4 weddings per day, and looked all cookie cutter. You will absolutely not be disappointed with JF. It is 100% worth the extra money
