Bonfire at the Riu Palace???

Recommended Posts

Surprise, surprise ....not sure if you are referring to the one in Cabo but they seem to be coming up with all sorts of new rules!! All along I have been trying to decide between the Riu and Dreams ... I thought I had finally decided on the Riu but now am really reconsidering.......

The Riu does have a lot of stipulations - I've posted a thread on this with the wedding policies that they have. My impression from hearing about Dreams is that you have more options in terms of bringing in outside vendors and I think they only do one wedding per day only as opposed to the Riu that have a max of 3 wedding.

 

I was initially going to go with Dreams but in terms of travel/accommodations cost for my guests, it is a few hundred dollars more expensive... so that was why we decided on the Riu.

 

Also, we have many friends who have travelled to the resort and LOVED it - and I have some picky friends wink.gif lol Also, a friend of mine JUST got married at the Riu Palace this past Friday and raved about it. The photographers we are hiring also did a wedding at the Riu this past March and also raved about the resort.

 

But on the flip side, I hear very good things about the Dreams as well.

 

I guess it depends on how much flexibility you want. Riu has a policy that 80% of your guests have to stay at the hotel......

 

good luck with your decision!

I am a bonfire person. Heck, our back yard has a 15' roman circle with a firepit in the center of it. I do see why the Riu doesn't have bonfires though. When I was there last November for a site inspection it was soooo windy. I couldn't see how you could have a fire safely. Even if you had a grill cover for it there's always sparks and it would light up anything made of straw. In Mexico that's basically everything! There are so many great things at the Riu that I really don't think you'll miss one. I know we didn't!

Peaches, which photographers did you hire for your wedding? I'm getting married at Riu Palace too and I'm deciding who to book.
