RIU PALACE COSTA RICA (New beside RIU Guanacaste)

Recommended Posts

Considering the hotel is so new (opened November 2012), I am looking to hear from Brides who specifically were married at the new Palace as opposed to the Guanacaste.

 

I have attempted to contact the hotel directly for details but from my understanding, all of the wedding details such as food, decor, private venue locations will be EXACTLY the same as the Guanacaste. Kind of defeats the point of paying extra to stay at the nicer (more expensive) resort.

 

I'm sure than have been some brides to get married at the PALACE in the last 6 months since its been opened. 
Would love to hear from you!

Thanks,

 

Antoinette.

Hey Antoinette,

Terrace Limpia (4th Floor Terrace) - Very large area and beautiful for reception, but maximum time is 10PM since there are a lot of rooms right under the terrace

I am also planning on getting married at the Riu Palce

 

How long did it take them to get back to you after you requested a day??

 

They usually get back to me within a week or so whenever I email them. Especially to confirm your wedding date. Who are you corresponding with at the RIU? We have clients getting married here next year, let me know if you have any questions and I will see if I have the answers!

 

Good luck and happy planning =)

They did finally getback to me took a little over a week but I got the confirmation now. I received the email from Pilar Valinas, although it also says Fernanda Rodríguez Velázquez at the top with the email address.

 

They sent all the pricing info and stuff so hopefully I will be good to go but thanks I will remember this if I have any!

Please be advised that Pilar is not the hotel's coordinator - but the sales department at RIU Head office in Cancun.

I am also considering the RIU Palace in Costa Rica for my wedding next year. Antoinette, I was also debating between the Guanacaste and Palace. I was wondering if any one here has done a site visit or how did you settle on the resort?

I've read a lot of reviews online. We ended up choosing the Palace due to the fact that it was brand new and very modern. It appealed to our family's lifestyle the best. There is also a cost difference between the two. That in itself can be a deciding factor for you.

I just reserved the Palace for May 2014. The resort seems beautiful, and the packages including if you want to do a private dinner seems very reasonable!

 

HAs anyone had or getting close to having their wedding here yet? I wanted to find a photographer too!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
