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 have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
