      Hi,

       

      In regards to the beach- I actually was thinking of having the welcome BBQ on the beach ( I have about 60-80 people coming).  With tables and chairs and buffets stand , It thought it might be too narrow- Im still thinking about this.  Dont get me wrong its a large beach area, and you can def host the ceremoney on the beach.  In december they are hosting a 450 person ceromoney on the Beach (yes I repeat 450)...so dont worry you are ok to have the ceromoney.   I heard the same thing about the photographer needing to stay a 3 night min- I decided to just go with Blue lens. 

      In regards to the rates- yes they have gone up. I had my travel agent blook rooms at the group rate last week so we are good to go..I am getting married in May which is different prices than Feb-

       

      The DJ we are worrking with is J&S Productions- seems pretty good.  Let me point out that the music (even in the lobby areas) is all in english.  They have a team set up to control music in the entire resort, from the lounges to the lobby areas.  The hotel prides itself with the music as they want to come off very modern Nyc chic- The resort does an incredible job with music- Even the DJ at the gabi club was awesome. I am from NJ so we are super picky about music.  I dont think they would work with a DJ that isnt top notch.

            Thank you so much for the info. I'm so glad that the ceremony is possible on the beach.  I have about 50 guest so i think it would work perfect!

              Hi All,

              I am so excited i found this site! I am learning so much! My FI and I just put our deposit down last week! YAY! You guys all seem to be so far ahead on your planning, i feel like such a slacker.

              Anyway, just found out about the outside vendor fee. OMG! I wasnt planning on using BlueLens either, what a bummer!

              As fantastic as the hotel is, our experience with the US representatives has been far less than ideal, really look forward to working with the hotel reps directly.

              We have selected the beach for the ceremony, but i have not received any information on reception venues. Does anybody have pictures they are willing to share?

              Thank you bunches!

                  You know what's ridiculous...for them to charge so much for everything when the place is in the ghetto. I dont mean a not so rich area, I mean shacks and corrugated metal for walls and roofs. It's shady as heck. You would not want to wander outside this compound.

                  when our taxi pulled up I really wanted to tell him to just turn around because I didnt' want to bother seeing the property.

                    Would anyone happen to have the a la carte options and pricings? thanks.
