EDR reception location help!

Recommended Posts

So, we leave in 2 weeks for our wedding, and I just received this email from Valeria:

 

Hi Shea,

 

The Hotel has informed us that next door from the Covered Pool there will be a night show for all of the guests, and we thought that since you have rented amplifiers and speakers, you won't have enough intimacy to enjoy of the Private Cocktail.

 

I can offer you the Gaviotas Bar (with an Spectacular Ocean view and cement floor) or the White Gazebo Beach Location.

 

I will of course take off the floating candles, and we can trade them for tiki torches (12 of them) to light up the scene.

 

Please let me know your final decision. I apologize for the short notice, but, please trust me,you and your guests, will enjoy much more of your private event.

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

 

I have stressed my concerns to Valeria about this, and she then offered me the Health Bar location (It closes at 4:00)

 

So, my new choices are:

 

White Gazebo (I don't think I want this since it is in the sand)

 

Gaviotas (this is not totally private, there are 4 open bar seats. Valeria said that people are respectful during private events, and usually continue.. it is close to the ocean, and has a cement floor)

 

Health Bar (never offered for wedding parties, but due to circumstances, she is allowing it.... near small pool)

 

 

SO, for your EDR brides who have been to EDR, which location do you recommend?

We have about 38-40 guests. I think she mentioned it wouldn't be too crowded. Do you know how far this is from the ocean? Thanks, I really appreciate it!

Hmmm- this is a tad disconcerting!! I am suppose to have my reception at the covered pool area- we have speakers/amplifiers rented, also... Is this something that just came up- or does this apply to all covered pool receptions!??! I don't know anything about the health bar.....

It just came up. I have had this location for probably 4-5 months, and she sent me this email on Monday. (2 weeks before we leave) I don't know how they didn't know there was a show up until now. I would maybe have the check to see about yours.

i think the health bar is to the left of the walkway when the ocean is on your right. so the only thing that would be between the bar and the ocean is the walkway and the beach. if you look at this photo - Leigh Miller Photography : el dorado royale | 0041 - you can barely see the walkway in the lower left corner. the health bar is right at the walkway if i remember correctly. so youd be really close to the sand and beach. i would just email and ask.

 

is there any reason you cant wait and make your mind up when you get there? or could you possibly lose another spot? someone has posted a map on here before i think. that might help too because i cant remember exactly where the health bar is on the property. i just remember the set up.

That is an accurate description of the Health Bar. It is right before the Castita section. I liked that option when I was there. However, It may be tight with 40 people plus dancing. What about Tuscanes? Not on the beach but a nice location. Gaviotas is a nice location but it is kind of far from everything. It is well into the Castita section.

 

I am suprised that this issue with the nightime show just came up as that is where they do the shows everynight. I guess it is dependant upon when you start the reception and what your music options are. Good luck!

These were the only three options available to us.

 

I guess I could maybe wait until we get there. The thing is that we have letters and instructions for people that I am printing before I leave, which I would like to include this information on.
