Riu Palace Los Cabos

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, just got back from Los Cabos and the wedding was beautiful, coud not ask for a more perfect day.

 

If anybody is getting married at the Riu Palace feel free to message me any questions you might have.

 

Im just warning you dont trust the safes at the hotel as 3 of our guests had their safes broken into and over a $1000 was stolen in total, so dont bring a lot of cash with you. The hotel would make excuses as to why they would not honor our stolen money, so nobody got their money back even though they tell you its insured.

 

Ash*

Hi ichimiyuki,

I'm a Sask girl! I just got back from the Riu Palace (married on February 18th!). I had the most beautiful wedding day I could ask for. I rented out the Mexican Terrace and totally recommend it. It was so beautiul and private and we got a lot of compliments on everything!

Mrs.Hocky, congrats on your big day. Mind if I ask you a couple of questions. I'm getting married there in July. How was the WC to work with? Where did you get your hair done? Did you just use the decorations that they provided our did you take some down? Also, did you have to pay extra for flowers?

Daniella was so good to work with! I had read a lot of bad things about her on here that made me nervous, but she really is good at what she does. She works very long hours can do up to 2 weddings per day, and almost everyday atleast 1. I just tried to not annoy her everyday with e-mails while I was in the planning stages and whatnot. She ended up hugging me at the end of the night!

I went to Suzanne Morel's salon. We took a taxi van for the 7 of us (including mothers) and it cost about $20. It only took 5 minutes or so to get there. I totally recommend the salon. I am a hairdresser and am very picky and I loved everyone's hair and makeup. They are very concerned with whether or not you're happy with it and ask you numerous times what they can change. My stylist got mine dead on and I loved it!

I brought down some fan favors and programs for the chairs at the ceremony. I also made some favor bags for the reception and that was all that I took. Where will you be having your reception? We booked the Mexican Terrace as a private event ($500) - and everyone complimented us over and over again. It overlooks the Beach and you can see the arches in the background. It's private and beautiful. We did our first dance out there, and the dance with our parents. Afterwards Daniella left us alone (we had it from 8-11) and we had supper and the cakecutting all done by 9:30. We had a dance out there until 11. It was a lot of fun. I'm going to post my review later today.

Lastly, yes I did pay more for flowers. I wanted roses, calla lilies, and a few orchids. I only had to pay for the orchids, because the others were included in my package. I also had to pay for the bridesmaids bouquets and I got a few fresh flowers for our cake.

Any other questions, feel free to message me. Or e-mail jannel19@hotmail.com

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
