Negril- budget wedding on the Cliffs?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm planning my wedding and we decided we want to have it in Negril, at a hotel on the cliffs. I've checked prices at Rockhouse, Tensing Pen, etc. but it looks like we're going to have a decent-sized group (about 80 people) and we're on a budget... wink.gif Has anybody been to Negril Escape? Would you recommend it? So far this seems like it might be our choice, but it's hard to decide sight-unseen...

thank you!!!

I spent part of my honeymoon in Negril, but didn't see this resort. Sorry :) I would definitely try tripadvisor, and the forums on fodors.com were also really helpful when we were choosing a place. I'm sure you'll find someone who's been there on fodors. The cliffs are tough because most of the resorts are a little smaller. The beach hotels just tend to be more geared to a larger group.

Hi there,


I'm not sure about that particular resort - but there's a resort next to Tensing Pen called Catcha Falling Star that you might want to check out as well. It's similar to Tensing but cheaper. I haven't been there but it gets great reviews and we are going to be using it as an overflow guest hotel when we are down there for our wedding.


Also check out Blue Cave Castle. It gets great reviews too - it is literally a castle on the cliffs - a little quirky but nice grounds. Different style of rooms than Rockhouse or TP.


And there's a new hotel opening in Nov 08 called Moondance Cliffs (it is sister property to Moondance Villas on the beach) - they will be more pricey once they get going but there may be a chance to get some cheaper rates locked in before they open that might work for you?


You could also check out the lighthouse - while you can't stay there - you can get married there - no idea what the costs might be there tho.


good luck!!

Oh... that reminds me... Sunset at the Palms is opening a new resort on the cliffs... I think it opens in Nov 08 as well. The grounds looked pretty when we drove past it...

When I first started researching location in Jamaica, that was my first choice. The pictures on the website look beautiful. They have so much information on their site, and links to pictures of sunset weddings that look just breathtaking. They also have a large indoor, or amazing reception area on the cliffs. The themed rooms seem like a lot of fun as well. It also has a great rep on trip advisor, with some wedding reviews.

I ultimately chose ROR because it is AI, and I wanted a beach wedding. But the sunsets in Negril cannot be beat, and I'm sure Negril Escape would do a fabulous job with your wedding.

    • 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.
