    My sister and I just got back from the Riu Montego Bay and we loved it. They had a lot more Jamaican food than other all-inclusives we've gone to and that was a big plus for us. The rooms were nice and clean and the beach and pool were comfortable too.

      I just stayed a week at the Riu Palace in Cabo in June and it is a perfect honeymoon spot! The staff and service is exceptional, the grounds are very well kept, the rooms were cleaned every day and the mini fridge restocked every day. It has a busier activity pool and a more quiet private pool. The nightly entertainment was enough you really never had to leave. I thought the food was very good and they have something for everyone. It was such a great place I have chosen to stick with the Riu for my wedding. You definitely can't go wrong by booking there!

        Paige.. that's great you have decided on a location! The Rui Palace is in my top two. I was wondering what location did you decide to have your wedding (i.e beach, gazebo?)

                DH and i (before marraige) went on a group trip to the Riu Bachata in the DR.. It was OK... but not worth the $ that we paid to go.

                  Mitzy7- I chose the Gazebo- It is beautiful and I have never loved the idea of trying to walk in the hot sand- but I have seen pics of the beach set up and it is also gorgeous

                    We just went to the RIU Santa Fe in Cabo in May and last year we stayed at The RIU Yucutan in Playa Del Carmen. Both had phenomenal service, great rooms. We felt the Santa Fe had way better food and we liked the resort in general better. However we like Playa more for its beaches and 5th ave.

                    The only thing we do not like about the RIU's is they do not have 24 hour room service. Also the worst part is for the restaurants you have to get up at 7am every morning to make reservations

                      7am!! That's so early! Can you only make reservations for that evening on that day or can you book your restaurants for the week?
