any UK brides going to Riu Ocho Rios?

Recommended Posts

Hi there

was just wondering if there are any fellow UK brides who will be travelling to Ocho Rios to get married.

 

IF so, have you had any problems with your travel agent? which agent are you going with?

 

THanks

Hi Claire,

Let me guess its not Thomson you've booked with is it? I've booked the ROR for my wedding in May and I'm having major issues with them at the moment. Its about the time slot we thought they had reserved for us of which they didn't. Its only after visiting this site I found out someone else had the same date and time! I know I'm not alone either as I've been speaking to someone else who has exactly the same problem.

Yup, Count me in! we are due to fly out 2 weeks tomorrow!!

 

Major issues with thomson, (from wedding times changing, to changing the seats on the plane, and not making their minds up how I was able to carry my dress on board the plane!)

Yes, its Thomson. We couldn't book throug the weddings department till we had our holiday booked.

 

By the time our holiday was booked, the only day left is 2 days before we fly home. Thomson can only have 1 wedding a day at Riu apparently.

 

After reading these forums, I've contacted the hotel direct as they haven't set the dates yet formally. I've asked her to bring it forward. They have or can have 6 a day so I'm led to believe!

 

My only trouble is that the flight is already booked up, so those booking at a later date can't book as we don't have a wedding date.

 

What a disaster!!! Glad its not just me.

Are Thomson doing anything to help? I've been on the phone everyday this week trying to sort something out, i've been speaking to chris, she's the weddings manager apparently, anyway as of yet all they can suggest is i'll have to wait and see if there's any cancellations. I'm not being funny but how many people do you think are gonna cancel their wedding 12 weeks before the big day?

 

And to think they are meant to be taking the stress out of the planning!

Thomson have managed to rearrange our wedding for 4pm, but on a different date. How they managed to do this I don't know considering I was told the whole of may was booked! It must of been the fact I was on the phone everyday asking for compensation!

I'm glad everything has worked out for you! Hopefully that'll take away any stress and worry. We're still with Thomson but i've got my new confirmation in writing so i'm hoping everything goes to plan.

 

Congrats again on getting the date you wanted!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
