Why ROR?

Recommended Posts

Since I came on this board I've realised that RIU Ocho Rios is extremely popular. Why is this? Meaning there are other more popular resort areas and many ,many resorts. I'm just curious. Those of you who have already got married there and those who are going to: Why did you choose ROR?

I personally felt that the RIU chain offers the best value for your money. The Sandals resorts looked nice, but seemed very pricey! I also liked the wedding packages and options available at the RIU. I originally was looking at RIu Negril, however after some research, I found that Ocho Rios seems to have more activities and excursions available for our guests. Also Negril doesn't offer the free wedding package. After looking on here and seeing all of the photos and great reviews I was sold on ROR. I figured it was better to go with a place that most people seemed pleased with. For our honeymoon we are going to Couples Negril, so we will get to see both sides of the island1

I chose ROR b/c I had parents coming that are divorced and didn't want a couples only resort where they would feel uncomfortable. ROR was more fun had more excursions and cheaper for our budget. My DH is a student and didn't have tons of money to throw around for a wedding. It was a perfect fit!

I chose ROR for almost the same reasons. We stayed at the Riu Negril once before, but I wanted to get to another part of the island.

    • 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.
