Kay I know you have been the ILA before. Do you think it would be too seperate to use 3 palapas? Is it true there are two closer together and the other two are farther away? I was looking at the photos you posted but I can't really tell... The two in the middle look pretty close adn then the 3rd and 4th farther away. I really want to have our dinner at the palapas but my mom thinks that it might be too secluded for each palapas? What do you think?

Hey csho, I would of really loved our dinner in the palapas as well, but I think they are to far apart for the amount of guests we have coming. Even the two close together ones feel secluded to me! I was bummed but the Cuban is really nice and they set it up really nicely with the gala set up.

I guess I'll have to wait and see once I get there and decide. Thanks though!

I am having the same issue. We will probably have about 55 people and I don't want everyone to be far apart. On the other side of it, at any wedding people really only sit at the table for dinner and speeches and usually talk to the people at the table. So if all of the people will fit I may just end up doing dinner at the palapas as well. I really wanted to have my reception/party on the beach after dinner but I emailed Giselle and she said that I couldn't. I am going to copy and paste this blurb I found on the website and see if she is maybe just confused as to what I want. The same thing happened with me having my wedding on a Saturday. It clearly said on the website that for an extra 150 cuc I could have the wedding on Saturday. I emailed her this and she then said I could. Fingers crossed it's the same thing with the party on the beach. lol

YAY that is an awesome idea wow it is going to be perfect! I cannot wait to see pictures of it all! I hadn't even thought about doing it all on the beach, I am getting married on the beach and then I am having my dinner inside and then we are having our reception at the beach bar (Iberostar Varadero)!!!

I was going to say I know that other people have definitely had a beach party after the dinner before!!! We were thinking about that originally but ultimately decided to go with the disco as we really want to do a salsa dance for our first dance and I think it will be nice to have the dance floor rather then beach for those. Thats why I really want to have our dinner at the palapas so we can get the best of both worlds! I am also thinking along your line Alley about people not being that close in a regular reception anyway. I have been thinking back about other receptions I have been to in hotels and you sit all around ball rooms which I am sure are much farther away then the palapas. but I guess because we tend to have smaller groups of people it seems like you could have people closer together. Anyway I am going to keep my reservation for the palapas and decide once we get there.  Anyway super excited that you are getting exactly what you want!!! And I didn't post it because it wasn't a great photo. Now I am home visiting for the weekend, so I will post it next week once I get back :)
