My wedding day is fastly approaching, and I am trying to decide on some details for that day. Have any of you had a private reception at the Melia? We have about 55 people booked so far and I am trying to figure out if I want the private reception or should I just have a dinner in one of the restaurants. I love the amphitheatre... It seems a little absurd to pay for a bartender for a private reception versus not having to with a dinner! Just my 2 cents... Does the resort work with you on pricing? Why should I have to pay for a bartender when the resort is all -inclusive? I would appreciate your opinions on this.
