Riu Palace Riviera Maya in August 2010

Recommended Posts

Newbie from NYC here.

 

My FI and I got engaged at the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas in August. We loved it so much that we decided to have our wedding at Riu Palace Riviera Maya in August 2010 (not yet confirmed). We're working with an agent that said our guest should expect to pay between 750-900 for they're flight and 4day/3 night stay.

My FI and I are wondering if thats kinda on the expensive side considering that we vacationed in Cabo for 620pp for flight and hotel.

 

Any suggestions would help as we don't want our guest going broke for our wedding.

I agree with Carly, we have some awesome TA's here on the forum, if you look at the banner at the top of the site you can click on it and get linked to one of them.

 

Congrats on your upcoming wedding. :-)

Cabo and riviera maya and 2 different places on opposites sides of mexico so it is really hard to compare apple to oranges.

 

If you are travelling at different time of the year that is going to factor in as well.

 

Also it is hard for anyone to say if your package price is high or not without knowing. dates of travel and where you are flying from.

I could be wrong...but I feel like that is a somewhat good deal. We are hoping to go to RPRM in Nov 2010 for our wedding. Our travel agent thought it would be about 1600/per person for flights from MN to Cancun, and a week at the RPRM. (She thought it might go down some with group rates etc). It is more then I was hoping for, but my FI seems to think its ok, and when you think about that being absolutly EVERYTHING included, it's not bad. I was looking at so many different places I was driving myself (and my FI) crazy. I finally got pretty excited and set on the RPRM and now I'm worried about the price. But then again, it is your wedding, you have got to do what you want and would be excited about. And you are kind of planning other people's vacations, you want to make sure they are going to get something that they love and feel like the $ is worth it. Good luck with planning! Looks like we are at about the same place/path with planning :)

august and nov. pricing is going to be very different...august is the start of hurricane season and the weather can be a little too muggy for some...while nov. is the start of high season.

Thanks everyone for your feedback. I actually signed up to be contacted by one of the BDW TA's.

 

Most of our guest will be flyying from NYC. Now we're unsure as to which month to plan the wedding- August or November/Dec?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
