When looking for a wedding location, there are many things to be taken into consideration…

Bride and Grooms have different expectations and it is great when both of them can fulfill their hopes…

If a Bride wants a natural spot, good prices, pretty beach and town for guests to hang around – and the Groom is hoping to surf with his friends, then Playa Grande is the perfect location.

It’s a small town, next door to Tamarindo, only walking distance to the beach, Playa Grande is a great surf point, with perfect waves for the experts!

It’s also well known for being the home of the leatherback Turtles and from the middle of October to the end of February, you could experience the nesting of this amazing sea animal, but also, during those months, visitors are encouraged to restrain from visiting the beach after 6:00 pm by themselves.

The area offers wonderful houses for rent or a couple of pretty nice hotels where the party can be hosted. I especially like Bula Bula, with excellent food and services, very layback atmosphere and great prices!!

Surf, friends, relaxation, all of this can be included in your wedding day, we can host a great party at Playa Grande, Costa Rica.

It is our job to keep ourselves updated with new properties with potential for weddings.

And last low season, we visited a few renovated and improved great options.

I am not going to lie to you, all inclusives are not my first option for a wedding, but knowing that RIU Palace had been open for over a year, we decided to pay them a visit.

Arriving at night time, sexy purple and bright orange colurs welcomed us at the lobby, and after checking in, we discovered a pleasant modern décor in our room, following the same line, purple , black and white colors combined with elegance.

The next morning, we had a really nice breakfast at the buffet restaurant, the variety of food was amazing and everything was delicious and fresh!

For lunch we enjoyed a super big BBQ, including shrimps , lobster, and we had other meats for the main course…

At night time, we reserved at one of the restaurants “A la Carte” and we loved it, not only for the excellent quality of food, but also for the first class service we received all night.

Restaurante fusión “Krystal” Japanese restaurante: “Tokio”, restaurante italiano “L’Anfora”, and Grill-/Steakhouse “Papagayo”, all with delicious food , elegant decor and great presentation .

During the day, we enjoyed the facilities, endless pools, huge option for snacks, fun and creative activities, comfortable lounge chairs to relax.

It has to be said; I was impressed with the quality and effort that the staff made in making people feel comfortable , happy and VIP.

The difference in price from Riu to Riu Palace is well worth every penny !!

I have been at both, RIU Guanacaste and RIU Palace and the second one is far superior.

Now, would I recommend this hotel for weddings? that is the big question and the answer is…. YES, absolutely, I believe couples and guests will really have a great experience.

The price of the rooms are reasonable, so for Brides and Grooms looking to relax and not having to plan much , this works perfectly. They have packages pre-designed and lots of the services are actually included with the price of the rooms.

No need to purchase another dinner, shows and entertainment are available, and their standard packages do include flowers, cake, music and the basic services a wedding would need.

Couples can personalize their day by bringing their favorite vendors , but the hotel counts with all the services you may need.

The beach is pretty and offers beautiful spots for a wonderful ceremony and the rest of the facilities will definitely fulfill the need for an easy going wedding day !

Bring your planner from Costa Rica Paradise Wedding, to make sure everything is going to run smooth and nice on your wedding day.

And of course, write to our travel agency to get the best rates available for your group and let us help you through the booking, payment , arrival transportation to make sure your wedding week is a total success at the Riu Palace.

Hotel Bahia del Sol, an authentic experience.

It’s always nice to go back to some locations and see the improvements they have done, also to remember why it was a pleasure to recommend it to our clients.

This is the case of Bahia del Sol, a wonderful hotel located at the beach of Potrero, around the corner from Flamingo beach, with a long beach , dark sand and definitely a more genuine essence!

This classy beach front property would deliver a great wedding experience, they not only have comfortable rooms with affordable prices, but a trimmed garden with an open terrace that would accommodate small parties to large groups.

Potrero is about 2 hours from liberia airport, still very rural, with everything within walking distance, you will see more locals than tourist.

You can definitely experience local cuisine at the small restaurants, life music, beach, horseback riding, ATV , bars with latin music, all Tico entertainment.

I had not planned a wedding there for quite a while, and when they changed some of their staff, I decided it was time to pay a visit.

I met Victoria , the new resident manager, a young smart girl with tons of fresh new ideas. I checked their new spa, the renovated rooms and manicure gardens..

Gary and I, enjoyed a wonderful lunch after the inspections and we were able to experience their high quality, a delicious fresh prepared meal with eye catching presentation.

This property would be perfect for people looking to enjoy a relaxing location where their guest are well looked after and everybody can stay together.

arefoot ceremony, garden cocktail and outdoor reception are always in their menu…

The visit was a success, especially because we negotiated super good rates for our clients, which is always a plus….

I am definitely adding this property back to my list, together we can offer a perfect wedding experience!
