Receptions at the RIU??

Recommended Posts


Hi! I read that you got married at the Santa Fe! That's great! I'm planning on wedding there Sept. 09. Do you know what the difference is between the Palace and the Santa Fe Gazebo? I have been in communication with both WC, but Palace's Daniela seems to respond quicker than Santa Fe's Paola. Do you have a copy of the extra ammenities and prices for the Santa Fe. I wanted fireworks and firedancers, wich the palace offers. Haven't heard back from Santa Fe about these extras.


Great Review!! You have helped out trememdously!

I am gettingg married on July 23. Our ceremony is in the Gazebo, our cocktail in the English Terrace and our reception in the ballroom. We are hiring Oxten to redecorate the ballroom. Daniela is not very warm. However, just make sure you constantly keep on top of her and save/print your emails.

Has anyone had the semi-private reception at the Steakhouse?? What is this like? After reading these posts, I realize I was under the wrong impression for private dinners....I'm booked for a semi-provate reception, and I just want to know how it is...

Hi... I ended up booking the entire San Jose restaurant for our reception... I didnt like the idea of other guests sitting next to my group. I dont think any other girls have done this before on this site, but if they have please let me know how it worked out for you!
