I'm a Newbie! RIU Palace, Riviera Maya

Recommended Posts

What an amazing site! I look forward to meeting you all and reading your wedding stories and wisdom!


First, I should introduce myself :-)


My name is Shannon and my fiancee's name is Mike. We are planning to get married in April 2010. No specific date yet as we have not booked our trip...hoping to get that done in the next couple of weeks.


We are expecting approximately 20-30 people to attend our wedding as well as a few children...so I would love a resort that will take care of all of our guests needs...and then some!


I have been "resort shopping" for A LONG time...too long. I finally came across the RIU Palace in Mayan Riveira and have fallen in love! Just waiting on the other half's "approval" lol!


If there is anyone out there who can help me out with some tips and information with respect to this resort it would be SOOO appreciated!!


Specifically I'm wondering if you can offer some advice about the following:


flower arrangements...what selections may have...I would love white Calla lilies.


D.J. vs. live band?

Reception suggestions?

Kid Friendly?


Thanks for taking the time to get to know me!


Hope to talk to ya soon! :-)

Welcome and Congrats! There are a lot of us getting married at RPRM. You can find lots of info on RPRM if you click on search at the top of this page and then type in RPRM. I know the resort is kid friendly. I think the choices for the reception are Chili's (steakhouse) or the brazilian restaurant. Happy Planning!

Hi fellow newbie!

I can't help you much, but I have been to the RIU Palace twice. It's a beautiful resort! My sister-in-law to be got married there in 2007 and had her dinner at the brazilan restaraunt and had a reception at the RIU resort next door (I think it was the Playacar, but I'm not sure). It was beautiful and she had around 40 people (no kids though, so can't help you there). If you have more questions, I can ask her and then get back to you.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
