Also is the Palace a kid friendly resort as well as the RIU Santa Fe?

 

BTW thanks to all the threads this really helps  A LOT! trying to plan a destination wedding can be a lil stressfull but I know it will be all worth it in the end =)

As I mentioned above, the Palace is kid friendly. They have two pools, one is the activity pool. At this pool, they play games and have contest all day long on a daily basis.  They also have Riuland which is a day camp for kids. I spent time at both resorts and found that Santa Fe has more of a 20 - 30 year old crowd and their pool (by the beach) was more lively. However, they played the same games at both resorts.

 

You do not pay for anything until you arrive.

Thank you for your input! Do 80% of the guest have to stay at the Palace or can some stay the Santa Fe resort? Im sure your wedding went very well and beautiful =)

They say that 80% of your guests have to stay at the Palace. I only had 8 out of 42 stay at Santa Fe. However, the Palace sold out so I am not sure what would happen if the Palace had sold out prior to most of my guests booking their rooms.

That is the tough part- the palace is more expensive and may be more difficult for some guests to afford.  But, the price is not that much different in comparison and then your guests would be able to hang out with you and everyone else on the rest of the vacation!

HELLO! Just joined and I'm so excited to read through all the pages of reviews on the RIU Palace Cabo.  I am trying to book 4/4/14 for our wedding date but all I got was an e-mail.  weddings@riu.com.  Is there a toll-free number to call to reserve your date or how do you do it?  Thanks!

You have to request the date thru the Riu website (riu.com). After you submit your information, they will send you a email confirming the date, time and location.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
