RIU PALACE CABO SAN LUCAS APRIL 2013- HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

I am reading all these posts and starting to freak out! I am getting married in two months and having troubles deciding where to have our reception. I see Kylene isn't a favorable WC and of course I am stuck with her. I need advice on what I need to be on top of with her.

We have 60 ppl coming to our wedding and am a little confused on the reception dinner options. Kylene has been horrible in getting back to me. We want an area that can hold 60 ppl comfortably with a DJ and a bit of a dance floor so we can have first dances etc. Can I do this with a semi private option? Is the steakhouse good?? Or would anyone suggest a different area? If we do semi-private are drinks included or do we need to select open bar option and pay?

 

Ladies any advice would be grealty appreciated!

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Hailey

Hi Hailey! Congrats on your upcoming wedding, mine is in May 2013. I also have Kylene and have just gotten most of my info from this site. I am copying and pasting something I saw from a former bride (2011?) regarding the location options. Hopefully it's still pretty accurate. I don't have pricing info, but I think I'm aiming for Baja Norte with about 50 people, private, with open bar.

Private locations:

1.  Mar de Cortes (Steak house) (rent the whole thing if you have enough people to rent the whole place...I forgot how many that was I think 60 or 80 people is the min to close it)

2.  Mar de Cortes (Steak house terrace): This is on the ground level, and you can walk out to the beach from here

3.  San Jose (Mexican Restaurant): I think most people rent the terrace of this which is above beach level. I wouldn't want to rent out the inside of the restaurant because its enclosed vs. the steakhouse which is not enclosed and has a nice open air feel, but does have a ceiling.

4.  Misaki (Japanese) This restaurant is enclosed as well.  I don't think many people rent this out.

5.  Medano (Buffet) Why would you want it here?

6.  English Garden (This is the terrace of the Buffet) I don't think a lot of people rent this, its probably pretty busy around there especially since its around dinner time.

7.  The Pacific Ball Room- inside

8.  Baja Norte/Baja Suhr:Poolside  I had mine at the Baja Norte.  The only difference is that the Baja Norte is the quiet pool by day, and the Baja Suhr is the activity pool by day.  So, its a little more private at the Baja Norte.  I Loved having it pool side because it was beautiful and you are overlooking the beach and ocean as well...there was NO One around us once the reception started at 7:00 which was very nice. 

9.  The Beach: The set up tables right on the beach, either right by the Steakhouse restaurant or right by the Mexican Restaurant- This option looked nice, but i think i would rather have my tables on solid ground.

10.  Disco

 

Semi Private

1.  Steakhouse Terrace

2.  Mexican Terrace

3.  Japanese

4. Buffet

For the semi-private you only get these for one seating...either the early seating 6:30 or 8:30 I think they are both for 2 hours.  If you want both seatings you have to pay for it.

Awesome!

 

Thank you. I think we are going to go with the Baja Notre as well. Would we be able to have a DJ and Screen with Projector set up in this location?

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
