Riu Paradise Island

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had their wedding at Riu in the Bahamas? If so, could you please let me know your review on it? Were the prices for the wedding/rooms resonable? What was your reception like?

 

I haven't had my wedding, but I was considering it. All I know is that it is an all-inclusive resort and the weddings were reasonably priced, but they have the following requirement:

 

Quote:
*In order to have a wedding at our Riu Hotels & Resorts, the couple and the 80 percent of the total amount of the wedding guests must stay at the hotel where the wedding will be performed; otherwise it will be canceled. This is a strict RIU policy we must follow.

Yea I did see that policy, I'm sure we won't have issues with that though. All the guests will stay where we are staying. I was looking at Riu in Jamaica, but the rooms actually look a lot nicer in the Bahamas, but I haven't really seen anyone write about it so I was a little unsure!

I have never stayed at the RIU but have spoken to quite a few people during my travels while in the Bahamas and most seemed pretty happy with the resort. However, you can find plenty of reviews about this resort within the following link on Trip Advisor:

Hi, my fiance and I are getting married there next november. We got an awesome rate of 1 week for 1400/person. My neighbour was there before the renos and really liked it. So we are hoping it will be just as good as her trip. cant wait to see the pic they put of it online once it is open at the end of the month.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
