Wedding planned for 2012

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone who has gotten married at the Riu has any advice for me or any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated. My fiance and I stayed at the Riu back in Sep. of 2005. We had a good time but did notice a couple of things that weren't really to great about this hotel. For one the pool is rather small. The jacuzzi wasn't hot probably because it spills into the pool. The first night we had one of those ugly rooms that have the ac view, thankfully they were nice enough to switch us to an ocean view the very next day. The other major problem we didn't like at all was that the tower blocked the sun at certain angles at different times of the day. We had to keep moving around chasing the sun!! The beach is wonderful. The water is crystal clear and the sand is nice and soft.I have mixed feelings about having our wedding there.I would really really appreciate it if someone who has already gotten married there helped me figure out what to do. I Thank you before hand.

We had to change the date to the following Saturday, the 25th. Like I mentioned in my 1st post. I have mixed feelings but I am more & more convinced the Roy is the way to go....the beach is so well worth it. Best of luck on your wedding day :)

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
