Just an FYI Tropical Pictures on facebook added a bunch of new photos...even of the cocktail hour and the rooftop bar area. But lots of weddings and they are really nice. Actually so nice I am starting to think I may use them after all.

The cocktail hour I believe for the canapes and one drink runs you $14 per person...but this might have changed since I was quoted that price.

I was thinking of having everyone meet up at one of the bars for drinks before the beach reception at 7pm. Anyone have any suggestions on what bar to meet at that has enough room and in a good location to the beach for about 40 people?
Thanks so much!
I actually extended the reception to 4 hours since we felt 3 might feel like it was too little time. However, we had a fairly large wedding where it took everyone 15-20 minutes to move from one room to the next and took twice as long to feed them all. It really depends on what you're going to be doing during the reception: i.e. entrances...we had his fraternity do a dance, etc etc.
We were in Bar Higuey so no dance floor was necessary.
The bar we used to hang out at was Bar Caray in the main lobby upstairs on the 2nd floor. It was air conditioned and the only bar that had 'premium' drinks available (some for an extra cost). It's spacious enough to fill all your guests.
