    Hello Everyone,

    I am trying to plan our wedding for April 18, 2008. We really like Jamaica but are having a really hard time deciding where to book.

    We would like:
    1. An all inclusive resort (possbily including the wedding) (are these packages good?)
    2. A resort that allows children. I have an 8 yr old and 10 yr old in the wedding.
    3. Budget ~ $2000-2500 per couple for a week.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I won the "grand prize" at a bridal show last month that included a certificate for 4 days/ 3 nights at Grand Lido Braco. We would like to use this after everyone goes home (as our honeymoon).
    Our reception is going to be here in MI after we get home.

    Thanks for your help!

    Sorry I forgot to mention, Beaches is part of the Sandals company and so your guests who are couples can stay at one of the Sandals Resorts.

      Thanks Christine,

      This was one of the first reosorts we looked at.

      Its nice, but very pricey. You pay for the Name....

      When we priced it with our travel agency, it wound up at like $3,000-3,500 per couple.

      I saw the posting for the Rockhouse Negril, this is nice. (but once again NO Kids)

      If i could only find a Non Sandals in Jamaica resort that allows kids.....

        Hi!

        We haven't offically booked yet, but we are looking at RoseHall Resort in Montego Bay Jamaica. Its an AI, children are allowed, and pricing is good. I have been in contact with their WC and she has been very helpful! We are looking for May 2008.

        Hope this helps.

          We went to friend's wedding at Rosel Hall Resort and we had a lot of fun. I did not hear any complains from the couple that got married there either, everything went smoothly. The food at the reception wasn't that great but everywhere else was pretty good.
