Im still waiting to see what's going to happen for our reception. Originally we were having our wedding in the ballroom but the Riu Palace Pacifico doesn't have one.

I agree with you. Im sure that they knew about this closure and they decide not to let us know. The ball is on our court so i will definately be asking away for freebies!! My thing that is getting to me is that we had everything planned out for the wedding and now I dont even know where its going to be or whats going to happen. I should find out tomorrow but even though they come back to us with options we are not going to be able to see what we are getting until we get there. FI and I took a site visit trip last year to take a look at our reception options because we did not want any surprises. I guess that didnt go to well. I just hope and pray that everything turns out ok.

Typically this is a last minute decision -based upon occupancy levels ( they are waiting till the last minute hoping that levels pick up-if not they go ahead with the consolidation).
You will not get higher prices for the guests that have already booked- they will honor the rates . For those who have not yet booked- they may end up paying the going rate for the new hotel.
It never hurts to ask for additional wedding amenities- just don't be suprised if they are not huge or existant at all. many times the resorts say that they are giving an upgrade to the higher end property (which is true). Usualy the higher end resort would be a difference of 200-600 per couple as the experience tends to offer better food, beverage and amenities.
Believe me I understand how stressful it can be but the end result is you will be marrying the person you love the most in the whole world! The experience will be amazing!
