Definitely do a search on WIP, I remember there being some problems with them. I'll see if I can find the thread & post back here for you.

If you arent getting any responses from Riu I'd check out Dreams resort. They seem to both be on the same level as far as hotel quality goes and the girls on this forum have had good experiences with them. Good luck to you.

try maye c or lovely weddings instead.
here are some bad reviews on WIP:
some info on WIP..
"Is anyone planning on having their welcome/rehersal dinner at
Pancho's? Just a warning....they jacked their prices up A LOT just a
few weeks ago. Went up 25% on plated dinners and 50% on alcohol per
person per hour and are NOT willing to negotiate. I booked it about 7
months ago and now I'm looking to change or cancel altogether. With 2
1/2 months to go though I'm guessing I'm pretty much out of luck. If
anyone wants pricing, let me know."
"I'm sorry to here that, are you sure WIP is not behind the
increase? They are the owners of Panchos. I hope it works out for you.
We were going to check into Margaritavilla for a rehersal dinner, but
I'm not sure on the pricing. Hope all is going well."
I had a horrible experience w/Katie as well.
Just be careful.
My poor experience with WIP was also with Katie. I am wondering if perhaps it just depends on which coordinator you happen to get there. I would think that a batch of coordinators working for the same company would have the same guidelines to work with, but this does not sound like the case with WIP.
I can't speak for Beth at WIP because I worked with Katie. When I met
her on my scouting trip she was great. She was very responsive to
emails and answered all my questions. However when it came to prices
she was not willing to negotiate and they increase there prices
double. They tell you if you can get a better price that you can book
the vendor on your own, but they will not be responsible the day of
the wedding nor will they make sure those vendors are on time, set
up, ect. I was very annoyed with this because my whole purpose of
hiring them was to make sure the Big Day went smoothly.
