RIU PALACE COSTA RICA (New beside RIU Guanacaste)

Recommended Posts

Congratulations Catwilliams! I almost booked my wedding at the same time!! 

 

It was a REALLY tough decision but I ultimately chose Hilton Papagayo over the RIU Palace. FI and I went to visit in July because I was so torn between the two, seeing the places made us lean towards Hilton. It's a little more intimate, even though we're having a rather large wedding, about 80 guests. I think our guests would have had a great time at the Palace also.

How has your planning going at the Riu Palace? We are planning for April 2015 at the Westin but just came across the Palace. The Palace looks very nice too and probably more affordable for our guests!

Our wedding is in April at the Palace, and so far planning has been easy. If you have any questions I can try and help, once we get back I would be able to say more about the resort itself and the experience.

Hello fellow destination brides!  My FI and I are trying to find a resort for our special day.  Do any of you have pricing information for receptions etc for the riu palace?  I'm only able to find wedding ceremony pricing.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  The palace looks gorgeous

Got married at the RIU Palace in April 2014 if anyone has any questions!

 

Hi there!!! I am so glad that I stumbled upon this post - I just got engaged last month and want to look into the Palace for my wedding November 2015. Before I dive in deep, can you please share some more details about your wedding experience with this resort, such as:

 

-What part of the resort did you have your actual ceremony at?

-Can you clarify pricing and what exactly that pricing included and did not include?

-My fiance speaks Spanish and I can speak a bit too, however, we communicate much better in English - were there any language barriers when dealing with the hotel's wedding coordinators?

-Did you do a walk through before the actual event? If so, details?

 

Any other tips, information, etc would be extremely helpful!!! Thank you in advance :)

 

-Danielle

I am planning a wedding for June 2015 and having a hard time deciding between the two resorts of Riu.

 

My wedding will have about 60 guests, but I want to bring my own photographer and DJ, do you know if they will work with me on those extras?

 

Thank you I advance!

Hello, I am in major confused mode right now! my thoughts when planning the wedding would be thst I woul pay my own way and the cost of the wedding, but I am told I am respo sible for paying for all of the rooms upfront, is that right? And if so, how does that work when my guest book and pay?

 

Also, what is the major difference between the palace and the riu guanacasta?

 

Thanks!!
