The hotel that we booked back in July (Riu Palace Mexico) just underwent a major renovation which changed the entire style and feel of the decor. It used to be traditional have Mexican decor which we loved and now it's modern while with pink and purple accents. Totally unappealing and not my style.
The bedrooms now have a completely open concept with the jaccuzzi in the middle of the room, open showed into the room, no privacy at all which is going to be a big problem for people coming with teenage children and people staying with friends.
When we booked we were told that we had a choice of either the Brazillian restaurant or the steakhouse for our private reception now we're being told that those restaurants are no longer and option and the only restaurant option is at the Mexican Restaurant (which is not an option for us).
The new reviews on trip advisor are terrible and completely different then the reviews from before the renovations.
I'm thinking about calling my travel/wedding coordinator to see what if any options we have to change the hotel location but not sure if that's possible since we already have 13 rooms book.
I know in the grand scheme of things things will be fine, this is just not what I imagined my wedding to be like.
Thanks for letting me vent!
