      Hi!

      We're getting married and the Riu Palace in March 2010 and we got the following information in regard to policies at the resort:

      SEMIPRIVATE EVENTS CAN NOT HAVE DJ INSIDE THE RESTAURANT this only can be
      possible at private events. Because you are sharing the location with other people & this disturb their dinner. Terrace of the restaurant as private event only can be DJ package #1.

      Now I'm worried because I think I read you need a certain amount of guests to be able to close down the restaurants for a private event

      Anyone else came across this issue??

      Thanks! :)

          My daughter is thinking about getting married at the Riu Palace in May 2010. She is wanting to have her wedding on the terrace for a few reasons: First, when we were at the riu Jalisco in Puerto Vallarta we made resevatioons at one of the restaurants for dinner and were very suprised to be seated in the full capacity restaurant next to a wedding party. It was hot, crowded and not at all special. the bride and her guests were pretty treated like the rest of the patrons no dance floor no Dj. Just a table that was decorated to looked like a wedding table. I have read the stipulations at the Riu that say no Dj's are permitted in the restaurant;only on the terrace. Hope this helps.

            I read that last night. I am rather concerned because why do they have a package that includes dinner, but does not allow a DJ or anything? We are going down there next month to check things out. We might do the semi private dinner and then rent the disco from 8-11. At least that way for $500 extra you get open bar and a DJ.
