Riu Santa Fe
Posted 28 January 2008 - 06:15 PM
I am a newbie, and want to see if anyone has any opinions and/or information about Riu Santa Fe, the newest resort in Cabo, right near Riu Palace. I am considering getting married there early next year but am a little nervous since the hotel is so new and the WC has not done any weddings there yet for me to judge whether she is any good.
I was just in Cabo over MLK holiday weekend, but we did not see anybody getting married. The WC we talked to said that nobody gets married in Jan. there. The wedding season apparently starts in Feb. Is there a reason why people don't get married in Jan. there? I checked the average weather for both Jan. and Feb. and they appear to be about the same. I would like to get married the Saturday of the Presiden't Day holiday weekend next year in February, but it falls on Valentine's Day. I don't have anything against getting married on Valentine's Day other than the fact that there will be 50 other couples getting married on that day, which I would like to avoid if possible, which is why I am considering January. Is there any specific reason why people don't get married in January in Cabo that I don't know about?
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I did purchased the Royal package and at the beginning I had extras, but I decided to book the flowers and the mariachi band with outside vendors. So far Paola seems very nice and gets back with me right away.

I am getting married there in July. Although I have stayed at the Riu palace, and I saw the Santa Fe when it was almost finished. Unfortunately though, i havent stayed there to try it out.
We do not know where we will have our reception yet. You can chose one of the restaurants, and it is included in the AI package. You can also arrange to have a private reception, and the cost was about 50 or 60 per person... and only beer and wine is included.
Would definately be nice to have a private dinner... but we are very frugal so will likely go for one of the restaurants.
I have not had great responses with our WC Ericka, but when you call her on it... she gets back to you faster.
If you are still trying to decide where to do the wedding, this forum is a great way to see what people are saying. Since the Santa Fe is new it is very tough since there have been no weddings yet (or none that I know of).
I am really confident with the choice to have it here. I am a travel agent, and Riu has a very good name, and reputation. For my FH and I, the only decision we had to make was between Riu Palace, or Riu Santa Fe. And the only reason we chose Santa Fe was so that our guests wouldnt have to fork out as much.
