a few questions/concerns I have:

i love the gazebo setting for the ceremony.. however, im not sure about the actual reception.. i have close to 100 people, and wanted something more formal.. do you, or anyone actually know if the RPRM has something like this? or is it really casual in one of their restaurants.. ?? and is it more like just dinner, or can I actually have an entire party there? i like the riu but i dont know if i need to find a different hotel with more of a hall available?

I saw people with other photographers there? is the only way of getting them them in by getting them a room overnight? i wanted an outside photographer because i wasnt sure if the resort one was any good? any info?

The Bota Fogo restaurant is pretty formal and can fit 100 people. The RPRM also has the Dan Manolo (I think that's what it's called) main restaurant which is bigger. They only offered me Chillis or Bota Fogo...other restaurants are off limits. You can always ask.

You could contact Edith or Cynthia at email: weddings.playacar@riu.com to inquire, but they might take forever to respond to you if you haven't booked your destination wedding with them. You can also call them:

Edith Domínguez
RIU Hotels and Resorts
Weddings Manager
Playa del Carmen
Tel +52 984 877 42 00
ext 811


As for the photographer, yes, it's the only way they will allow outside photographers is if they are guests.
