Riu Palace Cabo - My wedding is in Sept!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I've been reading a ton of mixed reviews about weddings at the Riu Palace in Cabo. I'm not expecting the Ritz Carlton or anything but I do want the services to be high qualitly. If anyone has had or is planning their wedding at the Riu Palace in Cabo (within recent months, or in upcoming months ahead) please send any info you can my way!

 

I've been in touch with Daniela the wedding coordinator over the last few days and so far, so good. She's been very responsive and helpful.

 

THANKS!!!!

... I agree. The Riu is very nice. The property is HUGE (think Las Vegas on a beach) so even if there is more than one wedding going on at a time, you probably won't see the other bride.. Also... as an "all inclusive" it has the best food going. Yes, you can get a hamburger or hotdog, etc... but the main dining room is awesome! White linen tablecloths, great service. Once, after shooting a wedding there, I went to the main dining room for a late snack... they kept throwing lobster tails at me... what a great life!!

I was there in August and I had a great time. I did notice that some people were complaining about their rooms because they did not get the room they requested. We did not have a problem. The food was great and yes there is so much food. When they say all inclusive, they mean all inclusive. We are getting married in July at the Riu. We will have 50 guests coming to our wedding. There are nicer places to have your wedding in Cabo, but I liked that the Riu is an all inclusive and is very big. My fiance and I went to see Dreams and it is very beautiful, but it was a little to quiet for our crowd. The reception must end at 10:00 too. At the Riu it ends at 11:00pm. Some people have positive things to say abou the Riu and some people have negative things to say, but I am being positive and I am just hoping that everything goes the way it is supposed to. Daniela, the wedding coordinator, has been very responsive and has gotten back to me quickly.

Wow! I am getting married at Riu Palace in September too. I have had the same experience...reading mixed reviews, but everything has gone well so far! Please let me know if there is anything else you know that you think maybe I should know. :)

I am getting married there in May and I have been reading the same mixed reviews! I have been emailing Daniela frequently lately and she is always very responsive to my emails...so I am keeping my fingers crossed. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with!

I was married in Oct 07 at the Riu Palace. It was Daniella's 2nd day on the job when I got married so I'm sure you can appreciate how stressed out I was. However, she seemed very organized for just picking up a big work load. My advice to all the Riu brides is also to stay organized- be sure to bring all your emails.

 

Ask me anything you want and I'll do my best to help.

I was married at the RIU Palace in November 2007 and myself and my guests truly loved the resort. I'm likely not the best judge on quality as this was my first all-inclusive vacation but some of my guests are worldly travellers and they are even talking about going back. I would recommend the resort but did have many issues with Daniela. I will admit that Daniela was extremely responsive but that's where it ended for me. I have noticed that there is another wedding coordinator now at the RIU so hopefully that will help things. Please visit the wedding reviews thread and read my review for all the details (I hope some issues have been ironed out since then)...KACENGG'S RIU PALACE Cabo San Lucas Wedding Review.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
