RIU PALACE COSTA RICA (New beside RIU Guanacaste)

Recommended Posts

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?



I think that depends on your travel agent and what not, we had to put a down payment to save the rooms, but once our guests booked then the money we put down was used towards our room. The Palace is newer, we didn't go over to the Guanacaste a ton becasue we didn't feel the need to.

Hey Antoinette,   Congratulations on your recent Engagement! What is that you would like to know? Here are the pictures that I have, for your reference. These are for some of the venue options at the RIU Palace Costa Rica.     Conference Centre Ballroom  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/207072/width/350/height/700     Green Area http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/207073/width/350/height/700     Green Area http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/207074/width/350/height/700     Flamingo Terrace http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/207075/width/350/height/700     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 http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/content/type/61/id/207076/width/350/height/700

I am planning my wedding, but only see one option for the ceremony location, is that right?

@ccoburn142 Hello saw that you got married at the RIU palace and wanted to know a few things, Did you end up paying extra for a private ceremony and if so was it a huge cost. Also how was the wedding coordinator did they do everything you wanted. I will be getting married here in AUG 2016 and just want to make sure this is the right choice. Also can you put a down payment on everybody's  room or actually pay the full price for it.

Thank you
