I Need Help Please Help Me Find A Kid Friendly All Inclusive Resort

Recommended Posts

My wedding is planned for 11/2009 and I am still searching for a resort to hold my wedding ceremony. I have been searching and searching for all-inclusive resorts in jamaica. I have found Starfish trelawny, Sunset Beach in ochos rios, Sunset beach in montego bay, and RUI in negril. As far as all the resorts are concerned I found info on all some good, some bad. And I am just confused on which to pick. Sunset beach is nice but I dont really like the wedding packages because I feel they are a bit overpriced because we want to have a reception as well. Plus at Sunset beach in ochos rios I cant get over the cruise ships docking so near the hotel. Starfish is kinda outdated structurly and is far away from everywhere but they do have the most to do for children. The Rui doesn't seem to be as kid friendly as the other hotels as far as water slides and activites by the website but honestly I really dont know. I have a son who is 8 and there are other kids in the wedding party and they all will be with us for the first 4 days and we want them to be occupied with activities and things to do so the parents can enjoy their vacation, relax, and unwind. I would love to know what you guys think are some of the best kid friendly all inclusive resorts located in Jamaica. You all have such bright and wonderful ideas that I know all of you have done your research. Please help!! We want to make reservations at a hotel so our wedding date can be reserved. Thanks in advance

We're choosing the RIU because of the kid thing (just my niece who is 2 at this point). We were looking at Beaches but it seemed really expensive as far as weddings go. Then we came accross the RIU Ocho Rios. Its just so beautiful and so many good options for the wedding and reception at any price point. I hear the kid's club is not that great, but that the pools are fun. Sadly, the best bet for a LOT of kid things is probably Beaches. You can have it at Beaches, then switch over to Sandals for you and your hubby (I think thats an option)

I knew someone who got married at one of the Beaches resorts in Jamaica and had a 1 yr old with them, he had a ball. But i'm sure it is really expensive, we priced the turks and caicos one and it was out of our fam's price range.

Hedonism II all the way. They gotta learn sometime.

 

I kid. I kid.

 

From what I have gathered, the Riu resorts are very kid friendly. We are going to the Riu Ocho Rios next week and would be glad to give feedback when we return. The ROR is also pretty far away from the cruise ship piers as well. It's on a different bay.

Beaches is definately set up to giv the parents some down time while keeping the kids busy!

 

Beaches Negril is great for the little set- the toddler area is great, in the shade with a little wading pool and there are water slides, a small water park where they can use a lazy river and the water shoot up thingys.

 

The beach there is amazing and will keep the older kids occupied for days!Plus the Xbox Room will keep them busy when they need to get out of the sun.

 

Beaches Boscabel is great for the older kids - 5 and up. Huge waterpark (something like 11 slides and 27000 square feet! )and a water area for little ones. Lots of arts and crafts going on. When I was there the kids just got back from baking cookies and were having a blast!

 

Beaches Boscabel also includes the greens fees and transfers to the Golf course in Ocho rios- great outing for the Dads!

 

It is pricier than the Riu properties but you get alot more overall!

 

My second option if you'd like to be at a more moderate price level is Riu Ocho Rios. It's a great moderate resort - amazing beach with really nice pools. You won't have as much for the kids to do there so it's a trade off.

 

If you need any help with the Riu send TA Maureen a Pm- she's a ROR bride and travel agent so can help you with any questions!

 

If you need help with Beaches I'd love to help out and answer any questions!

Hey,

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
