    Hi, my name is Leslie and I will be getting married at Riu Palace Las Americas in Canun in September. I was hoping that if any one has had their wedding there if they can share a few pictures. I want to get an idea of what the ceremony and reception will look like.

      I went on a site visit there about a month ago. I loved the place but the reception isn't private. Don't know if you knew that.. it was the reason why I didn't book it there. You'd have to have your reception in one of their restaurants and eat along with the other hotel guests. If you want something private afterwards, you'd have to rent the club next door at the Riu Cancun. Kind of a hassle. Gorgeous place nonetheless. Have you talked to Carolina? She was very helpful and nice so you'll enjoy speaking with her. Have you done a site visit? If you have any other questions let me know. I'll try to help.

      Here's some pics I took--

      One of the restaurants for the reception:

      The gazebo by the pool you can have your ceremony in:

      A hallway outside, I believe you can set up for cocktail hour in this section:

      The beach ceremony will be here, a lil further up ahead. I was very disappointed bc part of the beach is gone, and I had to walk over sand bags to see the location. The water was actually coming up to my feet so imagine walking like that on your wedding day with your nice white dress on:

        Thanks for the info!! I actually went on vacation there last year and fell in love with the resort. I knew about the reception not being private. At the time I didn't mind because we were only planning on having about 25 guests, so I didn't think we would need our own reception place. But, now our guest count has doubled so I'm not too sure what we are going to do for the reception. I know we will have to pay more to have a private dinner and we don't mind. I would love to have the reception at the terrace's steak house. I haven't spoke with anyone at the hotel because I was told I would be contacted by the wedding planners two months prior to the wedding. I would love to have an idea though on what the reception plans are because I'm a little nervous!

        Thanks for the pics and the ideas about the gazebo and cocktail hour!

        By the way, do you have a photographer yet?
