    Hi Everyone!

    I have a friend that is considering getting married in Costa Rica (or Riviera Maya). Can you recommend a great boutique-ish hotel for about 100 guests? The hotel would ideally host the wedding guests for the week and also be the location for the wedding. She is looking for a place that's little more intimate than a large all-inclusive, but also has a good rep for hosting weddings. Any suggests would be very welcome!!!

    Thanks!

      Hello Mel&B,

      Capitan Suizo is one of the nicest boutique hotels in Tamarindo. Sugar Beach Hotel is perfect for a wedding your size and it is really private (located between rocky coves) north of Flamingo beach. Arenas del Mar in Manuel Antonio is a gorgeous boutique hotel (a little more pricey). Give me an idea of you budget and I will be glad to help.

      Cheers,

          Another great place for you wedding is Bahia Sol. Excellent, excellent menu. Very cute boutique hotel. Take a look at Nicole & Dan's wedding to get an idea: El Velo Photography.
          The rancho and ceremony site are very close to each other and they don't have strict rules about having your celebration go on late.

          Cheers,

                I've been looking into this tooo.  Thought Arenas Del Mar cut off parties at 80 or so.  I'm looking for the Manuel Antonio area and so far have only seen Costa Verde's Event Center, which might be too big.  Does anyone know another place in Manuel Antonio that can hold around 85+ people with room for a dance floor?

                  We were afraid the Event Center would be too big for our 72 guest wedding but it was perfect! The dance floor was the just-right size and the band set up in the front (not on the band platform) so the space felt filled perfectly.

                   

                  We used Sylvia from Costa Rica Paradise wedding, El Velo for photography, Los Mojitos for live reception music, and Karahe for ceremony venue.  We stayed in Casa Paraiso and arranged/paid for transportation for our guests to the ceremony from all their villas and hotels and between ceremony and reception.  Many of guests stayed in villas and loved them. 

                   

                  Just realized I'm adding an update to my own question from before, but had such a hard time with every decision and scoured this website and others for info, so hopefully this update on our August 2012 wedding will help others.  We wouldn't change a thing and highly recommend all our vendors - good value and great outcomes!

                    My wife and I just got married at the Tamarindo Diria and had about 80 guests from 5 different countries. It was fantastic, check our review on Tripadvisor for more details. We also had El Velo as our photographers/videographers and they were outstanding, far surpassing our expectations
