Newbie Here...Married almost 1yr ago in Ocho Rios, JA

Recommended Posts

I was married in Ocho Rios last August 27, 2008. We got married at the Hibiscus Lodge Resort also located in Ocho Rios. I've included my slide show to the post. Here's the link; Binjour-Lee Wedding: 8-25-07--Ocho Rios, Jamaica by jeannette.binjour.


We spent our honeymoon at Riu Ocho for one week. Actually, we spent a week prior to the wedding at Rooms on the Beach in Ocho Rios with our guests. Then, we moved to Riu for the honeymoon.


If you have any questions about planning a destination wedding in Jamaica, please let me know. I also used an amazing wedding planner to assist me with my planning in Ocho Rios.


My mother and husband are from Jamaica. So, I have tons of experience on the island as a local and tourist. If you want an honest opinion about certain locations, I am here to help out.


I am going back to Jamaica for my Anniversary. Actually, we planned to go to the Dominican Republic at Riu Bachata. We partially paid for our trip. Then, we noticed that airfare was so expensive from Boston to Puerto Plata. We decided to go to Jamaica again. We plan to stay that Riu Montego Bay. I've heard that construction is somewhat incomplete. There is a possibility that they may send us to either Ocho Rios or Negril. I am totally fine with either choice. We are going their from 9/2-9/9. I always love going home.

    • 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.
