Hello my fellow DW brides!

 

I am 99% sure that the RIU palace Mexico will be the location for my DW. I was looking to see if anyone had knowledge and or experience with this destination. I would like to gather as much information as possible before I commit. I was originally Going with the NOW jade riviera cancun, but because of recent reviews of their customer service declining I was a little uneasy moving forward with them. I think I am interested in the caprice package, anyone had that package or going to have that package? I haven't found any information on reception option or if they even have that option. I'm hoping to make a decision soon as I'm looking for dates in May 2015 and time is flying by!

 

Thank you!

Jess

It was one of my choices. We stated at Riu palace riviera Maya in December and like the RIM better for a wedding. Only reason I didn't pick Riu is because I found Palace, but, if we got married in another country it would definitely be Riu.

Riu does have 4 different packages and they do have reception options which you pay per person, you will find you run into this at alot of resorts as well if you want something more than dinner. I do have the specific prices somewhere if you would like, I want to say off the top of my head it ranged from $25 pp - $40 depending if you want private or other details you'd be looking for. When we were last down in Mexico we actually got to talk to one of the wedding coordinators, who was very nice!

@@jessg619 Hi!! We're getting married at RPM June 2015!! I'm glad there is someone else considering it! They sent me some info on private receptions if you would like it. :) Have you stayed at any Rius before? We love them!

Yep, I talked to a Riu wedding coordinator during our stay at Riu Palace Riviera Maya I was told its $25 per person if you go over whichever package you choose. I just preferred to not pay per person at an all inclusive and I wouldve just had a small wedding at home. Riu is absolutely great though. We will honeymoon at a Riu resort and consistently use them for our vacations.

Thank you ladies! This experience was beginning to be a lil bit overwhelming in trying to narrow down the resort and a " Perefct" one at that. @@susie q I would really appreciate any info you can send me! Jessg619@yahoo.com. @@TheBHolders I also didn't want to pay per person, I prefer the all- inclusive packages just to alleviate some of the last minute unexpected cost, but I honestly am ready to begin planning and don't feel like continuing my resort search.

Yay! Congrats @@Icis. How's the planning going? I wish the RPM had more online info I could review or pictures! I feel I have literally search everywhere online for pics of weddings at RPM and have not had much luck. I would like to get an idea of what other brides have done :-)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
