All Inclusives in Costa Rica?

Recommended Posts

I have fallen in love with the Paradisus too!! But I just don't know how expensive it would be. It looks so beautiful though.

 

I would love some information as well if anyone has some.

 

I was in Ochos Rios for my sisters wedding at the Riu and it was beautiful - I would probably get married there myself if she wasn't my TWIN! That would be a little too twin-like I think, we might as well have done a double wedding!!

 

Anyway- it's gorgeous down there and the people are soooooo nice I couldn't believe it, the Riu is absolutely beautiful, but it is HUGE so I don't know if you'd want to go there.

 

Good luck planning- what dates were you looking at?

I'm having my wedding at the Paradisis Playa Conchel on June 5,2009; after rescheduling/moving it from Playa Mujeres b/c of flight issues with the Swine Flu. It was a mess, but it is all in place now. The resort looks beautiful, and Paola the Wedding Coordinator has been truly fabulous in helping me with all the details. The only thing I haven't booked is the photographer, still working on that....but, the prices were very similar to Mexico, and the flights were only $15 more for us here in Houston. :) Hopefully some of this helps....

Depending upon when you are planning your wedding for, the Riu will be opening a resort there in November of 2009. They always are a great option for an all-inclusive hotel and their prices are usually very competitive.

This is what my travel agent quoted me when I was looking for a spot to get married in CR. Good luck. I have a friend that attended a wedding at Paradisus and he said the hotel was beautiful.

 

All inclusive hotels-prices are total for 2 adults, including hotel, hotel taxes, all meals, drinks, and water sports that the hotel offers. Prices below are for 7 night stay.

 

 

 

Occidental Grand Papagayo $1520

 

Paradisus Playa Conchal $2280

Those are about the going rate. I just want to warn brides, there is a HUGE difference from the Occidental and the Paradisus. The location and the facility are very different. The Paradisus is on a level of thier own. The Occidental is your basic all inclusive. I have visited both, and the difference between the two is just to vast to try to compare. Just research both on your own, this is my personal opinion. :)

I love the look of the ampitheater from Villa Caletas and the white dome that some of the Paradisis' have. Can any of you recommend other resorts in Costa Rica that have similar areas for a ceremony?

 

We want that garden/tropical look more than on a beach.
