RIU Los Cabos trying to make it hard for all of you to choose your photographer
Posted 07 December 2007 - 05:58 PM
Quote from the wedding coordinator of the RIU:
"I checked with the manager of the hotel, you can have the photos that are included on your package, but if you are going to bring your own photographer, please i´m going to request to do this photos before, not during the ceremony.
Also for the photographer you need to pay a day pass by the rate at the front desk ($100 us) or you need to buy at least 1 hour for photo package or the video package in case that you don´t want hours for photo. This is because we have a contract with a photographer and he has the exclusivity to take the photos for our events."
I am sure the RIU will loose a lot of weddings by doing this, but thats the deal they did with the photographer that has a contract with the hotel, it does not matter if you like the style of the photographer of the hotel, you are to stick with him, as they say for the ceremony.
Imagine bringing the photographer "you" want and for him or her not being able to shoot the ceremony! just because it's the hotel rules, I really cannot believe it!
I think this is just completely wrong!

I"m starting to wonder if we made the right choice by picking the Riu to stay at for our wedding. (not to have our wedding there, but just to stay)

They WON'T let you outside WC in, unless you pay the 100 dollar day pass.
They WILL make a huge scene if your WC gets in without paying, even if they told you or forgo to let you know.
I was witness to both of those episodes, at RIU Los Cabos, I was helping out my girlfriend (the outside WC) and the GENERAL MANAGER and the in site Wedding coordinator (Daniela whatsername) start treating like hell and threating us to call the police unless we pay'em.... All of this near (way to much) of the WEDDING PARTY..
So girls, think twice and be very careful, they're not very professional, they've lost IPods, cameras, laptops, and some other things, and they won't pay for them or even say SORRY...
ok Bye now
