    Hi Terbear,


    I know Suzanne Morel's salon has airburshing...Its expensive there though: $125.00 for face and body and $105.00 for body bronzing.

    I don't think the Spa at the RIU had it...Its a super small spa, I was very surprised.  I was told the RIU Santa Fe Spa is larger than the one at the Palace, but we never checked it out so I couldn't say for sure.

      What is airbrush tanning??  Also, Kary - I am curious if you received the room up-grade?  Thanks for adding pics!  Loved looking at them - they are great!

        Kary, Thanks! Wow...those prices are nuts!!! I will just deal with pasty white people and tans lines...including myself! Lol. Maybe I will bring my own tan in a bottle!! Valerie, Airbrush is like spray tanning but done by an actual person onto your body not the machines. So you don't get the running and streaking! Its done with an airbrush like airbrushed make-up but bronzer for your whole body that typically last a week! Thanks All!!

          Hi Valerie!

          Yes I ended up getting the room upgrade, but I had to ask for it.  We had a GREAT view from our room, # 3063...See pic below.  It was also by the quiet pool and nice because it was right off of the lobby (the Lobby is on the 3rd floor) view from room.jpg

          Just a heads up, I pretty much think if you were on the 3rd floor, you had a view of the ocean.  My inlaws paid for an ocean view room, and were on the 2nd floor and were mad because everyone else didn't upgrade, and they had a better view than their "ocean view room."

          You can also go to the front desk every morning and give them the list of your guests that are arriving and request for them to be at least on the same side of the resort as you.  The resort is HUGE, so its nice to have people close, or at least your bridesmaids.  You may even want to go the evening before if you have a lot of people coming in the same day. 


          Happy Planning!

            My biggest fear is that there will be an ugly cruise ship in the water behind my wedding. You also mentioned water taxis pulling up to the beach.

            Was this a problem for you? I don't seem to see any in the background of your pics so far. My wedding will be on a Saturday at 4pm like yours so maybe I will get lucky, too.

            Did you happen to notice when the ships came around? I would like to avoid them if at all possible.

            I got married on Friday, April 13th and there were no cruise ships. I arrived on Tuesday and there were cruise ships there all day and night on Tuesday and Wednesday.

            Far as the water taxis, they leave from behind RIU Santa Fe, so there were never any behind the Palace during my week stay. I even took the water taxi few times to town and Lovers Beach. I had to walk down to the Santa Fe to get on.
