    My Riu Palace review

    Our wedding was april 30th 2008 At the riu palace. We had a small wedding (10 in total) It was perfect for us. I personally orderd my flowers & cake & did not use what the hotel provides. I ordered my flowers from Cabo flowers & had them delivered to my room, they were exactly what i wanted & beautiful. My 3 tier mini wedding cakes were made by Jennifer Hatton (Cabo dessert Diva). She did an excellent job! the cakes were a huge hit with our guests. Great idea for a smaller wedding, At $30 a cake you don't want to have to order too many. Riu was charging $60 per bottle of champagne & we thought we could get it cheaper, we went to costco (yes our cards worked) Champagne is not as cheap in mexico. We got Moet for around $54 per bottle so really not saving to much. Riu has a corkage fee for bigger groups of $20 per bottle if you are bringing in your own. We did not have to pay this. We used the hotels photographer, His name is Gabriel Garcia, He is starting to go out on his own. We are very happy with our photos & would definately recommend him. Our pictures were all ready in 48hours & we got to bring then home with us in a nice leather album, as well as a disc with all our pictures on so we can do what ever we want with them. He was alot of fun. Our reception dinner was at the Gourmet restaurant....all i can say is gross! The food was not good, between 10 of us we all had something different & only 2 people liked what they had. The japanese restaurant was really good. Steak house not so much & the mexican restaurant was not so good either. The buffet always had something good you could find. Our group was taking turns geting sick & we think the seafood was one of the causes. Our room was nice & clean. House keeping stole some of my m.a.c. makeup from our bathroom & no one really gave a shit. I filed a complaint & I'm sure they filed it in the garbage as soon as i left. after that don't laugh but i stared putting my makeup in the safe. We also kept our do not disturb sign on the the door....But guess what every day they would still come in & my bustier went missing on one of these occasions. Almost every night we were there they had the same entertainment......YOu would think if you drank enough it would not matter but it did. We went to the bars in Cabo a few times and had a great time. I wasn't carzy about the wc ( Daniela) but her assistant Monica did a great job, and was so nice! I will post pictures as soon as i get that figured out. Over all we did still have a great time, We would all go back to Cabo but i think we would stay at another resort.

    Costco for Champagne?

    I was married in Cabo at the Riu on april30th, we thought that they were charging wat to much for champagne so we went to costco, We are from Canada & our costco card worked. We bought Moet And i think it was just over $50 per bottle. It was good & our guests liked it too. Compared to what our hotel price was we did not save much per bottle, maybe $8. We talked to some locals & they said champagne costs alot in mexico & costco was probably our best bet.

    Riu pics

    Hey! I'm getting married april 30th. I was planning my reception at Sunset Mona Lisa but have now decided on doing it at the hotel....If you can wait until then i will take pics for you. We are getting married at the gazebo over looking the ocean and i think we will have our dinner on the mexican terrace. We have a small guest list so it's easy. We are not planning on doing it private...I will let you know if i regret that or not. Not sure if you are getting a cake out side of the hotel?? I'am using Jennifer Hatton Of CAbo dessert diva. & for flowers i'am using Cabo flowers both are awesome to deal with!.

    Mine....I Hate my FMIL! so much that instead of having the wedding i ultimately want with everyone there i decided on a DW. The people that are coming with us don't even know becouse i can not risk her finding out & showing up. (she would do that, uninvited & un-announced). When my Fi said he would have to invite her if we had a wedding at home i made my decision. Seriously I'm convinced she is the root of all evil. And she is going to be so mad when she finds out & she was not there! Ok maybe i'm evil.
