Emily- I was entertaing the idea of a welcome dinner/rehearsal dinner but if you have more than 10 people in a reservation they charge you to have a "plated dinner menu" at $20/$25 a person. And heaven forbid you want to have a private area for any of it they charge $200. The only way to avoid having to pay out the nose for all that is to do it at the buffet. For us that is just what we're going to do. I'd rather save all that other money for fun excursions or spa trip. Anel is slow to respond but she always does. If you think about she has brides and weddings, checking in and organizing all of it everyday of the year. Ramon is also super helpful too. Whatever you choose I'm sure it will be beautiful. Congrats!!

I was hoping to have something casual on the beach, like a buffet or appetizers. I have emailed Anel, but have yet to hear back. My wedding is booked for June 10.
I think I do remember from reading another BDW brides review of I think either NOW Sapphire or Jade....or maybe Dreams Tulum. I've read so many I can't remember. Anyways, I think she had to pay the fee but she said that it was well worth it. So if it's super important and your picky about it then do it.

I would direct the email to Anel, but you know how loooooooooooooong the response time can be!! I am getting so frustrated with the lack of communication from them
