If there is anyone out there who has picked the RIU Rivieria Maya Palace please be in touch with me. We booked for Feb 5, 2009 and am wondering about the DJ/dancing after the reception dinner- if you did this why or why not and was the open bar included? Any other helpful tips are much appreciated.

 

Thanks-

 

Jaime

I had my reception at Boto Fogo (which is Brazilian). I originally wanted it at Chili's, but I wanted a private reception with a dj for dancing and that is the only place they will allow that. (If you have 50+ people) At chili's they want at least 80 ppl to close it down for a private reception. But in the end, it was best, because it was more intimate for everyone. One suggestion is DON'T pay extra for a cake!!! It is NOT good, and they serve dessert at each restaurant. (we paid over $350 for 52 people and not one person ate it! LOL)

 

Here is the link to my Shutterfly Non-Pro pics. The first 24 pics are from the Riu hotel's photographer which does a wonderful job! Now I kinda wish I wouldn't have flown my own, but I can tell you that this guy is a pro and will do a great job if you hire him!

 

The rest are pics given to me by my guests.

(I should get my pics this week, per my photographer!)

Im done w/ my review, but wont upload it until I get a link to my pro pics.

Should be by the end of this week. I promise!!!

Hi there

 

I'm getting married on Feb 11 2009. Initially I booked the disco when I thought that there would be over 80 guests. Now that the numbers are lower I have decided to bring my own IPOD. Hopefully everything will work out!

Your pics are so great, you are a beautiful bride! Thanks for sharing them. I'm gearing up for the big day and if you have any suggestions let me know. I to was looking at restaurants for the reception and since we are going to have about 60 people I think we will do the same as you did at Bogo Foto. Was the food good? Thanks for the unpdate on the cake. If you don't mind what wedding package did you pick and were the services (spa, hair, nails, massage) good? I'm so excited that the wedding is coming up soon.

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you

    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
