Our food was fabulous! We weren't expecting it to be so good since it was an AI. We ate the buffet 3 nights, once even an hour before our scheduled dinner at Krystal b/c it was so good. At Krystal we had the salmon and steak which were both great. I loved the breakfast buffet too. It had a smoothie bar (my favorite), a Bloody Mary station, Mimosa station, and any breakfast food you'd want. At night, there was an amazing dessert bar with a chocolate fountain. Needless to say, I came home with 4 extra pounds.

 

The mixed drinks were strong!! They have a great martini list that is fun. The only beer they serve is Dos Equis, which was tasty. They do have some upper shelf liquors, which also surprised me. The frozen drinks were good, but premixed, so not very strong. The bartenders gladly added more liquor if you requested. I will say that the cups they provide are tiny (like a juice cup), so we definitely plan to give our guests cups in the OOT bags.

 

Our service was fantastic here. We did tip a lot, just because it felt like the right thing to do, although we never felt obligated. The front desk was awesome with straightening out our transfer back to the airport mess. We had arranged for a private transfer with American Express, but our driver never met us to tell us when he'd come get us for our return flight. The woman who helped us at the front desk made the call for me, and even left us a cute note in our door about our pick-up time.

 

All in all, it was a great site visit and we're super excited to share our wedding with our friends and family at the Riu RM:)

It's so great to have this site to get information and ideas from! Thanks ladies!

 

Question for you all based on Greysgirl's comment on bringing cups in the OOT bags. I've been planning to do the same thing, but want an opinion...should I order simple pastic cups with our wedding logo on them or would it be better to spend a little more for insulated cups with covers and straws? The insulted cups would be between $400-500 where the plastic cups would be way less...thoughts?

 

Insulated cup example: Double Wall Acrylic Tumblers, Acrylic, 16 oz. - Promotional Products - Drinkware - Tumblers - Plastic & Acrylic Tumblers

 

Plastic cups will be just that...

Vlvetter-It's funny you mentioned that because my FI and were just talking about it last night. He is against getting cups at all because he says that it is a waste of money and people will just throw them away when they are done. So this a man talking, but he is the avg man so he is probably right. I don't know if it's worth spending that much money on them.

 

If anything I'd just use cups. I found these insulated mugs on ebay for about 34 cents a piece, but you have to buy stick logos or see if someone could add images onto them. Unfortunately, work has ebay blocked but if you interested I could send you the link.

I just wanted to say that the mugs we got were a huge hit! Yes, a few people did forget theirs by the pool and on the beach but I had brought extra's because I knew this would happen. Most people I know still use the mug daily for their morning coffee.

 

greysgirl - Thanks so much for the review/pics, I miss it so much and I want to go back sooo bad!!!

My sister did mugs and they were a HUGE hit!! I definitely felt they were worth the money, so I am giving mugs and just a couple small other things for our OOT bags. And I agree with Lisa, I know a lot of people kept their mugs for coffee/tea at home after the wedding!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
