Ok, thanks for the recommendation- I will probably just do the private event route then- and just go with a different menu. It will actually be thanksgiving, so maybe they will do somthing special for us! I'm not going to hold my breath- but it doesn't hurt to ask, right? Thanks you for the advise on the fee and small bills. If you don't mind me asking how much $ n small bills would you recommend?
Curly- thank you for your input on the WC- hopefully we will hear soon!

We had our welcome dinner at the Tucan Terrace and it was perfect. Right on the ocean, a little windy because of that, but no bugs and kept it from being hot.
Most of the restaurants have slow service so if you take large groups be prepared to wait and for your dining experience to be slow.
We didn't have any hidden fees or charges. Your wedding coordinator should lay it all out before you get there if you have contact with them and if not ask how much stuff will costs and take all of your emails with you. Zaray told us that if she didn't give us a price then we would not be charged and that's exactly how it was. When using credit resorts if there's a tax you will be required to pay that and transportation if it's not included. We had to pay transportation to go deep sea fishing and it was separate from the payment for the boat. Be sure to take small bills when you go anywhere because they don't have change in most places and if they do they give it to you in pesos. We ended up tipping both our driver to the airport and the airport guy who took our baggage to the check in line in all pesos just to get rid of them before we came back home.

I plan on reaching out 3 months before my date.
Well any of the larger restaurants I listed should be okay, but for 40, I would take advantage of the private setting and use my unlimited evens on a terrace or rooftop terrace. =)
