Getting Close - Riu Palace Questions No 2.

Question: I have about 55 guests coming to Cabo. Most of which are between 26 and 38. **I feel sorry for the bartenders already.
To make this wedding as cost friendly as possible, we chose just to have the reception dinner at the Mexican restaurant as a semi-private event since that is what was included in the package. My fear with this is I am not sure what to expect. Daniela mentioned that there will be room for a small dance floor (first dance only) but in all reality, are we all going to be able to get up and dance and actually have a good time pre and post dinner?
Second question is: If this is the the right spot for us, what do you suggest? By all the papers Daniela sent me, to do a private event, it looks like I would have to pay for a private spot of $500, then pay per head to eat which is about $30, then $15 a head for open bar. This will add an additional $4,000. Is this right?

I email Daniela regularly with questions and she normally replies back within 24hours. The last thing I need to give her is my flower order and if I want to up the cake count, etc. Guess she is making the final bill.
BTW, Hope you have some single friends coming. I am sure some of my crew would be happy if you did. HA.

No single friends but sounds like between your group and our group - it's going to be busy. We have some pretty serious drinking vetrans as well...lol.
What day do you fly in?
I didn't realize that you got your room free with 25 rooms.....we would be really close to that too. I will have to ask.

With that said, I just booked everything in July so she could be playing catch up with me.
I asked her about the 25 rooms question so once I get the reply, I will let you know.
you may want to get in touch with her. Put your wedding date and time in the header.
We get in on Tuesday the 11th.

I am getting married at the RIU Palace on the 24th. We have about 50 people coming and did not want a "semi private" reception. So.. we rented out the entire San Jose restaurant for $1800.00 from 6:30-11:00. They give you a choice of menus for the restaurant and it includes beer and wine. We wanted to have enough room to dance and not have to worry about other people since our party is kinda big.
That might be an option that you would want to think about. If you have any other questions, just let me know.
