    I am still trying to decide on a resort for my wedding but have to take into consideration the accessibility of the resort as some of my guests have physical disabilities. I really like all the reviews I have read about the ROR and am seriously considering it. Does anyone know if there are ramps, stand alone showers etc at this resort Also, I was wondering if there are other areas to get married and have a reception that doesn't involve the beach as again this would be an issue for a few of my guests ? Can you rent out a restaurant for the evening to have more of a private reception with dancing speeches etc?

    Thanks a bunch,

      I know there are ramps everywhere. Like the entrance and to get to the pools and such. I'm not sure about the stand alone showers. Probably in the upgraded suites but I didn't do that one so I'm not sure. If you got married in the gazebo in the garden it would be more accessible than the beach. And yes you can rent out a restaurant for your reception.

        You can e-mail the ROR sales person and they could most likely answer all your questions about what is wheelchair accesible. They got back to me in 1 day. For ROR the e-mail address is "weddings07@riu.com".

          I just asked the same question! My TA finally heard back from ROR and they said that the entire resort is handicap accessible. Also, if you let them know that someone is in a wheelchair they will book them a room on the first floor. They also have wheelchairs available there to use, not sure if that's helpful in your situation or not. I agree that the garden gazebo would be a wise decision to accomodate your guests in this case.

            3 of my guests required a wheelchair and was able to get around perfectly. The resort provided wheelchairs and there are plenty ramps. However, I'm not sure of the showers.
