    The terrace of the steakhouse has a max capacity of 70. It's kind of in a weird location though. It's on the lower level and is just off of the beach. The only issue with this location is there has to be one long table for everyone.

      Thanks! For the steakhouse do you remember if there is a bar close by? I don't really want to pay extra for an open bar but I hear there is a bar close enough that guests cna just walk there and pick up mixed drinks? I think they said wine and beer are included.

        There isn't a bar anywhere near by, its a really strange location. It's literally a small, long terrace sitting on the beach on the lower level. 

        I paid for open bar which was an additional $10 per person. I'll warn you in advance- the resort wine if awful!!! I tried both their red and white and both were horrid! No one in my group of 40 enjoyed it. All of their mixed drinks are extremely sugary too, I mostly stuck to mojito's with no sugar.

          Iliketea!! I am getting married on 11/20/13!! we will be down there at the same time as each other! Its coming sooooo fast its crazy. We got engaged in August 2012 and in November 2012 we took a trip down to the Riu to check the resort out. Jatziri is our WC and she was super nice and helpful. As of right now we plan to rent out the entire mexican resturant since we have over 70 friends and Family coming down with us, However, I have to say I am finding myself second questioning at times and find myself considering the Baja Norte.... Its a nice location as well and has a great view. My first/ origianl choose was the steak house terrace and beach combined but didnt love how low the steakhouse terrace ceiling is.

           

          I will definitley agree with RNtoBe about the wine. When I was there in November the wine was absolutely terrible. It makes me sad that they havent changed it yet- i spoke with the WC about the wine ( I LOVE my Wine LOL ) and she said they were in a contact they werent able to get out of but if I re-call correctly she said the contact was only for a year.... Anyways across the street is a wine and liquor store, and we plan on buying several cases for the night of the wedding. Jatziri said that would be fine.

           

          RNtoBe, how was the process with everything... flowers? dj? Hair & makeup? Any words of wisedom :) ?

            Does anyone have any photos of the Disco? We thought renting that out after dinner to save on costs, but I really want to know what it looks like first! I can't find anything.

              There aren't any photos, but I'm going to be honest with you, its a tiny square, black room! It's very small, dark and damp in there.

                We are looking into Riu Palace for our wedding as well in July 2014. We have a very small group, but still want to do a nice little reception. Since we all will be on the all inclusive plan, we would not need to pay extra for our private dinner and drinks, correct?

                  Yes the Riu Palace is an all inclusive however, they consider a wedding a "exclusive" event. Therefore if you would like a private reception you will have to pay a site fee, pay per person plated or buffet menu, open bar per person and dj & lighting.

                    Hi There,

                     

                    Can anyone tell me how the food tastes??? I'm thinking about doing my reception at either the San Jose Terrace or the Don Julio Terrace (definitely don't like the look of it tho but the menu seemed better)

                     

                    Also, saw this pic - are we available to rent this out without paying per person?

                      Okay, thanks for clarifying. We are trying to save money so I'm looking at all options. Does anyone have any ideas how to have our own little reception without paying the extra for food and drinks? We are bringing our own ipod and dock. Thanks!
