I am in the very early stages of planning a destination wedding. I was hoping to use the Riu Palace Pacifico in Nuevo Vallarta, but I just found out that a private reception and dancing isn't possible for less than 40 people, even with a fee. I don't yet know how many people I will have, but likely more in the 30-35 range.
I really would like a venue that allows for a fun reception. My sister married a few years ago at the Riu Palace in Playa del Carmen, but she had a private reception due to having over 40 people, but it was so fun!
Also, my Mom will be in an electric wheelchair as she has ALS, so it is imperative that the property be wheelchair accessible (elevators and/or ramps, doors wide enough to get the wheelchair through).
Hoping for a resort in the $200-250/night range to not make my guests pay a fortune.
Does anyone know if what I have been told is accurate? They won't "let me" talk to the onsite coordinator or give me the price list with all of the "extra" costs.
Any help is very appreciated!
