    I am new to the forum, but I think it's such a great resourse. You girls are great! I am trying to decide between these two sites and I am kinda stuck. Is anyone having their wedding at either one? I'd really appreciate any info.

      Hi, welcome!

      I looked at the Riu as well, but they have a requirement that a certain percentage of your guests has stay at their hotel, something like 80%. I'm planning on having around 50 guests, and I want my guests to have a choice in where they stay, so that was a deal-breaker for me. If you're having a smaller wedding, that may not be an issue for you. The travel agent who is helping me also said that the Riu's have had some problems with their beaches eroding. She recommended the Lindo to me.

      Good luck!

        Thank you. I decided to go with Riu, but I am still waiting to hear from them. I hate this part of not knowing...

          I'm having my wedding at the Lindo. I have the 2008 wedding package info if you want it. It was a little more expensive, but I liked the Iberostar resort better. If you have any questions please let me know. Welcome to the forum!

            Welcome to the forum! I am getting married at Lindo May 2008. I went there in May and feel in love with the resort. Let me know if you have any questions.

                I actually did a site visit with my FI back in April and visited both the Iberostar Lindo & May and all of the Riu Resorts. Although the Iberostar was great, we decided to get married at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya. I just thought the Iberostar was too big. If you have any questions about the Riu though, just let me know!

                  We did a site visit to the Lindo earlier this year. Personally we did not like it because of the size of the resort and the location choices of the ceremony. I also did not feel comfortable with the WC there. The rooms are nice tho and the resort is pretty - just really big.

                  We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

                  We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

                    Funny, I was looking between the 2 also, and we just decided on the Lindo due to the fact that it really seemed family friendly with the wave pool and the lazy river. I wanted my guests to feel like they have opportunities to hang out and relax but also have a ton to do. We'll see if I made the right choice!

                      This is from a wedding at the Iberostar, it might help.
