Congrats on your wedding you must be excited! I just got married at the resort in July of this year so I'm going to try to answer a few of your questions! Sorry I can't answer regarding Piscis as we did not choose that, but judging from pictures it looks like it would be a beautiful choice!
Open bar - I would say it depends what you were going for with your reception. We didn't have a "traditional" reception with dancing all night, etc. We had a less formal one, just dinner and a few traditional elements (speeches, first dance, father daughter dance, etc). We didn't opt for open bar and I did not regret it! We got served drinks the entire time we were there. If you plan to be there longer I might suggest to consider open bar, but for us we didn't feel it was worth it.
Salon - I got my hair done at the salon, as well as my 2 bridesmaids. They did a fantastic job! Keep in mind, you get a trial hair style the day before included in your package if you choose to go with a bridal hairstyle from the spa. She will give you a book full of styles - you show her a picture you like and she'll do it. You could also bring your own pictures if you want to be safe. I actually ended up with a completely different style than what I originally wanted - she did exactly what I asked for, then called me back to the chair and tried something else. I ended up falling in love so I went with it! Great job! Even one of my bridesmaids who usually doesn't like when other people do her hair loved it! I recommend
Ceremony - We did the beach wedding and it was amazing. If you choose beach wedding you have to be ok with onlookers. There were a lot of people watching, taking pictures and videos. I didn't even notice anyone until we were officially married and I looked out after our first kiss and saw everyone. Up until then I was in a wedding blur For me I wouldn't want to trade the beautiful beach gazebo and beachfront wedding, so it was worth it despite the onlookers. For me the scenery couldn't be beat! The garden gazebo is beautiful too! It is more private so you won't have as many random people watching you, but you still may have some onlookers because it's slightly off one of the walkways. Comparing the 2 if privacy is the most important I'd go with the garden wedding. If atmosphere and scenery of the beach is your dream - don't let the onlookers scare you off! Another thing to note is on the beach you will have much more of a breeze. So it will be cooler on the beach than in the garden. Also the breeze on the beach may cause your hair to blow around a little more than you'd like
Hopefully this helped a bit! Sorry if it was long & feel free to message me if you have any other questions. Good luck!

We booked for the unforgetable package but we don't know which restaurant to choose. Does anyone knows if the Piscis is is a good choice? Is not full of gawkers since it's very close to the pool and other restaurants? Would you recommend it? And what about the drinks? Is it necesary to take an open bar as an extra?
Second of all, does anyone tried the salon for hair? How is it?
And what about the ceremony? Where is the better place? Beach gazebo (i'm afraid that it's too close to the people laying at the sun) or white gazebo?
