  1. Hi, how is it going. Did you get information you wanted?
  2. Do any of your guys know if the pool side bar can be rented after hours to do a party there? I e-mailed Maria to see if there are any options I am still waiting on a response. Also does anyone know if they supply CD players or if its better to bring an IPOD and docking station?

    Riu Mambo email correspondence

    Hi Riu Mambo Bride to be, Thanks so much for all the info and numbers I will definitey call and get some prices. I know exactly what your talking about I emailed Maria to ask about the dinner and she said the same thing to me too. It will be a beautiful dinner and she didn't tell me what options I had in terms of a party. I was thinking that maybe we can use to poolside pool bar and bring a CD player or IPOD docking station and dance out there. But the only thing is I think the pool bar closes at 7. So I hope we can pay a waiter/ bartender to stay until 12 or 1 am. I e-mailed Maria to see if its an option but I haven't heard back. Do you know anything about the pool bar? Does anyone know if they supply CD players? Or would it be better to bring an ipod and docking station? I guess since we have destination weddngs its not the same as traditional we know but we atleast want it to be nice. Your definitely right though once we get there and we talk to Maria and we throw around money she will probably do more. How is your planning going did you do what your gonna do for a party? mt wedding is the same we are getting married at 10 am and the dinner is not til 6:30 so we just gonna tell our guest to relax by the pool or we are gonna go do something fun like maybe one of the excursions and stuff. Goodluck with everything. I will definitely let you know how mine goes. Thanks everyone, Sita

    Riu Mambo email correspondence

    Hi Riu Mambo bride to be, I am getting married at the Riu Bachata March 14. I am having the same problem with the WC. I send her an e-mail asking her about reception details and party information. She sends me a run around the bush answer and never answers my questions. Its totally stressing me out as well. I asked for seat covers at the reception and 15 e-mails back and forth and she is saying she can't bring the chairs from the ceremony which are already covered into the restaurant. Its like they won't make acceptions and everything is standard. I have read Sara and Riu Bachata brides comments and they said it went well so am keeping my fingers crossed.
  5. Hi Bachata Bride, Thanks for repsonding back. I was wondering about both for the dinner was it set up nice? Am guessing there was no table clothes and seat covers and center pieces? Then for the party do you know if you can rent the pool side bar and do a party there? I read some other brides did that at other Riu's. Hope to hear from you soon.
  6. Hi RDHBride. Am getting married at the Riu Bachata in Puerto Plata. The WC there takes a fews days to write back. Did she send you a PDF. We got one and there is a band listed in it to call. Also try the vendor section of this site there are alot of them listed.
  7. hi Sara, do you have pics of your reception?

  9. Hi Bachata Bride, I am realy anxious to see your review as well. I am getting married there next month on the 14th. I am so nervous about the reception part of it. I want it to look nice. I've been asking Maria alot of questions and if she can do more for me to make the reception look nicer. So far she hasn't be able too. So am very scared. How was your reception?
