    I am in desperate need of one room for April 12th and the website says the resort is totally booked. So since there are so many of us getting married during that week I thought I would check to see if anyone has rooms still blocked that they may not use. HELP!!!!!!

      wow, good luck with that. I'm getting married in May and my TA told me last week that ALL of the standard Oceanview rooms have been booked. So for my guests that have not rsvp'd or paid yet, they will be FORCED to upgrade and pay extra for the Oceanfront superior room.

          Make sure you check travelocity, orbitz, and cheap carribean. When we were married the ENTIRE hotel was sold out, But the weekend before our wedding my dear inlaws gave in and decided to attend our wedding, along with an aunt and uncle,they even called hotel directly were told sorry there sold out. Well I was able to find rooms on those websites. They have blocks of rooms reserved for them so those are the last rooms to be released back to the hotel. Just keep searching the internet sites and hopefully you will be able to find a room!

            Hey Courtney, we still have rooms available under our block. We are finalizing our reservations on Monday so let me know what you're in need of.

              Hi Girls,

              I havent been on the forum in a while, been soo busy with work and wedding plans that i dont have much time to do anything else.
              We are in the same situation. A few weeks ago we were trying to get the last of our group booked and the hotel is sold out on the 12th- which is my wedding day. I still have 2 people that have not booked yet! One of our couples booked 3 nights at RIU and 3 nights at Sandals. Sandals was over $500 more for the 3 nights than the RIU!
              Does anyone still have rooms in their block that are not accounted for?

              Has anyone been able to get a discounted "day pass" rate for wedding guests?

              thanks!

                Just FYI- I was never able to get an additional room for the 12th. The resort would not even allow someone with a block of rooms to book one of them b/c the resort is full. I hope you have better luck!!

                  I'm confused, the Riu website is showing availability. Why can't you book?

                    Holy Cow, you're right! When I checked this weekend it was still saying no rooms available. Thank you Jesus!

                      You guys are freaking me out with this thread.... I have a TON of people who are waiting until the last minute to book. My wedding is at the end of May. I think I'm just going to ignore this thread... and start thinking about the saying "no problem mon" early.
