What should you know about to make this your dream wedding: Besides the background provided above on the resort you've chosen, you should be aware that there is construction going on next door to the north of the Riu from 8 AM to 6 PM most days. In addition the resort turns into party central on weekends when low rates for Ticos appear to attract a large crowd into serious drinking and partying. Better plan the wedding for a weekday and locate activities away from the construction noise.

Even if you're not hearing the answers you hoped to, please be aware that your flippant tone isn't liking to encourage anyone to help you.

I believe that you are receiving answerers to you question: "What should I know ahead of time to make this my dream Wedding?" whether you want to hear the answer or not. As to your second question “but what can be done now?” (Which is pretending to be written by someone else) the answer is don’t spent you money at the Rui to help prevent them from doing further damage.

If you truly believe other hotels pay people to write bad reviews about riu then it wouldn't be hard to believe that riu pays for good reviews now would it? Did you read the one where the reviewer absolutely gushed about the crown molldings in her room? Any seasoned traveller will ignore most of the over-the-top reviews and all the abysmal ones. In the case of riu this will leave you with a rating of around 2.75. If you believe a resort with a slightly better than average rating can pull off a wedding that is up to your obviously very high standards then you are on the right track!
