    I am trying to plan my wedding in beautiful Cabo San Lucas and am wondering about the Riu Palace. I'm looking for a beach ceremony and reception following. I have read that a lot of people have their reception at the steakhouse. Is the mexican restaurant any good. I just figure, when in Mexico.... Also, we want to have dancing but I am not interested in renting out the disco. I would like to have it all on the beach. Is this possible? Any suggestions or comments would really help. Thanks!!!

      If you search Riu Palace there is a lot of great information from past brides. I know there is a slide show that shows a beach reception with dancing. I too am planning a Cabo Riu wedding for May 2010. I am going down there this coming May and can pass along any additional information!

          Hi Jen and Josh! Congrats on your up coming wedding. Is Daniella the WC? I have heard mixed reviews about her. Have you ordered anything extra? I really think the Mexican restaurant will be fun. Have you seen pictures of the restaurant?

            Daniella is the coordinater. So far she has been great to work with. I am not getting any extras, just what is included in the wedding package. She did send me pics of all the restaurants so I did see it. It looked really pretty.

              I was at the Riu this past November for a site inspection. The Mexican restaurant has terrific views. I wasn't crazy about the food though. We were in the second seating and the food seemed a bit cold to me. The restuarant I'll probably be using is the steakhouse. The views are not as good as the Mexican terrace but it's good for us. What I REALLY want is the steakhouse food at the baja norte (poolside). Haven't received prices for that yet though. In my opinion you picked a really great resort and Daniella is great to work with. She took my FI and I on a site inspection and gave us at least an hour of her time. She is very efficient and works very hard to make your day great. I'll see if I can post a few of the pics that I took of other weddings when I was down there.

                    Thanks Jerome for the pictures. I really like the reception on the beach pictures. Does anyone know which restaurant you can have dinner on the beach like that?
