    Do any of you have pics of the Riu Santa Fe Gazebo? I have seen one pic, but am wondering if they decorate it for weddings and what it looks like? I LOVE the one @ the Riu Palace.....but it costs way more to get married there.

    Thanks

      There is a pic in the cabo sub forum. I dont think anyone has gotten married under it. Erika doesnt even recommed it. It is literally on top of the pool.

      sorry these arent the best quality pics, but we were obviously not trying to take pics of the gazebo, it just happened to be in the background. please excuse any and all funny looks or weird things my family are doing in the pics haha
      this is a night shot, the pic was taken with my back to the gazebo, so you can see what you see from the gazebo

        imho i seriously wonder who would want to use it for a wedding. its not beautiful by any means, and so little, really. no space around for chairs or anything. and there is really no place to hide as a bride before you walk towards it. it just doesnt seem like it would work very well. i mean you go all the way to mexico to get married in a gorgeous setting, why not walk 20 feet farther and have a beautiful set up right on the sandy beach? its so much prettier.

        and for someone worried about getting married in the hot sun and hoping the gazebo will provide some shade, that is just not what this gazebo does. ok maybe for the wedding party, but all the guests would be in the sun anyways. and its on the side of the hotel where the sun is shining until late in the day, so really no escape.

        not to harp on it, haha, but i just dont think it woulde work well.

        my advice is go for the beach!!!!

          I completely agree with Abbie. When they built it, they didnt really put much thought into it. We got married on the beach and I have no regrets.
