    hi brides!!! Thank you all so much for your reviews on this resort, I am 90% close to choosing this resort and already have a date of July 22, 2011 reserved with the wedding coordinator Carolina. However, I still have questions about the reception dinner and cocktail hour options and would appreciate all the brides feedback that have been married here. Waiting to hear back from the coordinator can take days and it would be great to start finalizing some details. Here are my questions:

     

    1- Cocktail  hour, options and prices (type of alcohol)

     

    2- Reception dinner: is la Uva restaurant my only option if I want a private reception dinner? what exactly does semi-private dinner mean? Please send feedback for both options: semi-private and private dinners including type of drinks included.

     

    3- my FI and I including our guests want to dance! I want a more traditional bride/groom intro and first dance.

    What are the options for SPACE for dancing at the restaurants? I know the beach party has a dance floor set up for an additional cost, but do the restaurants offer space for dancing?

     

    4- Finally, is la Uva restaurant enclosed? are any restaurants semi-outdoors?

     

    Looking forward to some feedback and thank you in advance!!! :)

      I'll tell you what I've heard until someone who's had their wedding already jumps in..

       

      Cocktail hour for 2011, I'm still trying to figure out if they still do that, I asked Carolina almost a month ago no response it's not listed on the "extra's" she emailed me. But I heard people mention instead of doing a cocktail hour just having everyone meet up at Hemingway's (a bar at the resort) I'm leaning towards that and I figured I would just send my bridesmaids to reserve some space before everyone gets there

       

      Unless you rent out the restaurant for 1000 dollars you cannot dance in the restaurants , so I was told.  Semi private is they have a designated area for your guests but the restaurant is still open for the rest of the resort

       

      I hadn't heard anything about the a dance floor for the beach party, how much do they charge for that?

        Thanks chell44. I am asking her right now if there is an extra cost for dancing even though I believe some restaurants have space for dancing. What resturant options did she give you if you don't mind my asking and which have you decided on?

         

        Thanks!!

          She hadn't mentioned the restaurant options but what I've read from others is that you decide on that when you get there, I heard La uva is nice. I know the menu isn't affected by which restaurant you choose, it's just the setting.

            Chell44, Carolina sent me the options for cocktail hour if you are interested. Hemingway's sounds like a good idea to me too. Do you know where I can find pics of this bar?

              I too would be interested in the options for the cocktail hour! I just assumed they bring champagne and we hang out at the gazebo for an hour....I guess I should get my butt in gear and email Carolina and get some answers! We're getting married in January and I cannot wait!


              Counting down to January 17th in Punta Cana!

                  Here is the attachment with cocktail hour info. $6, $7, or $8 per person, or you can always go to Hemingways bar and have cocktails there for no extra fee :)  the document she sent me is in Spanish since I have been communicating with her in spanish, let me know if you need a translation!
