We had our wedding at RIU Palace Punta Cana in November 2012. We traveled there with 40 of our guests. I would like to highlight the wedding planning department at RIU Palace! Special shout out to Maria who planned our wedding and the day went by flawlessly. We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It nice, big, clean and has a wonderful beach. Downsides inlclude: poor entertainment, bars close very early, no food on the beach, no music on the beach. But those are little things I am picking on. Overall this was a great experience for us and our guests. This is a great location to have a wedding at. Go with a beach Gazebo and do order extra flower arrangements to make it look even more gorgeous. The videographer did a great job with a video as well. Their a la carte restaurants are great as well except Japanese. We had the wedding at the Steakhouse restaurant which is a terrace right by the beach. Great food and service. Overall in terms of food choices I can say I've seen more but if you are not going there to eat then you'll be just fine. There is always something for everyone. I especially enjoyed breakfast there! The resort also has plenty of shopping available to get any souvenirs you need and do check out their spa! It is better to have a room on a second floor and windows facing outside (into the back garden). That way it's quiter and you even get a sneak peak of the ocean! Ask if room 3028 is available. It has a gorgeous balcony with jacuzzi on the very top! Breathtaking!
