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

Hey we're planning a destination wedding at Riu Palace in Costa Rica. We were wondering if you had any information on reserving the rooftop terrace or any info on rates for catering? Thanks!

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.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
