Yes I did both a cocktail hour and a reception. Mine were right next to each other- not technically in the same spot- they had different names for each spot (I was at Sun Palace so knowing the names wouldn't help you anyways, haha). But when you get to Mexico your WC will show you EVERY site they have and if you are the only wedding that day ( I was) you can change your mind- which I did for the cocktail hour- they were going to be on opposite sides of the resort but then she said she would get PSAV to come early and play music (free of charge) during our cocktail hour if we had them next to each other so I said- Fine with me!
I think your set up sounds nice!

I was thinking about doing the cocktails on the infinity terrance since its right by the beach where we will be taking pictures so people can kinda be back and forth and then we will all move to the reception together (Palenque Terrace). Is that what people do? Different locations? Thursday we are doing cocktails/hors d'oeuvres and then welcome dinner all on the sky terrace.
Any opinions welcome!!!
I am just bringing a CD of all my ceremony music as well. I found this Mexican guitar instrumental (all acoustic) artic while looking around on iTunes for inspiration. He does covers of really popular songs but it kinda goes with the beachy feel so I am going to use some known songs for all of the ceremony music (bridesmaids, signing, kiss, me walking, recessional) check him out the name is Michael Marc and the CD with known songs is called "Popular Romantic Hits on Spanish Acoustic" there are 2 vol. also. Good luck everyone!!
