Riu Montego Bay

Recommended Posts

I too am considering RIU Montego Bay for my wedding in April. Any new information or price sheets available? Kind of hard to consider planning when we can't even find out the basics.....


Thanks so much for all help!

What kind of deposit did you have to put down to save your date?

Plus I am not really concerned with things like flowers, cake, etc. I just want to relax, have fun, and come home with decent pictures to show the family.

I did check and if the resort is not upen in time for our trip, then we will be sent to one of the other Rius on the island instead...which is not a bad option either. Also the travel insurance we might select has some coverage for that as well.

Right now it looks like our wedding date will be either Feb 28 or March 2, 2009. We are likely to put the deposit down in the next few days. I might be the first Riu Montego Bay bride on the board!

    • 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.
