Distance between Ocho Rios and Negril

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Our wedding is set for Ocho Rios Riu and we are thinking about other locations for our honeymoon. I am really liking Couples Negril (apparently more lively than the other couples locations) and I was wondering if anyone knew how long it would take to go from Ocho Rios to Negril......And also, how we would go abouts doing that the cheapest way possible if we decide to go there. I sort of want to go to Negril because I heard its absolutely amazing, and since we are already in Jamaica, might as well try to see the most of it!

 

Im just worried that we would have to take a cab or something and it end up being a ton on money..

 

Any insight?

*loL* not sure of the distance but I could find out. My MOH's husband is from Jamaica so he would know.

I know Negril is known for nude beaches though..*lol* you might get quite a show.

Haha yes, thats what I heard as well! Actually Couples Negril has a nude beach as well as a normal beach...im not interested in the nude beach, so I think I will stray away from that.....lol.

Mo is right, it's about 4 hours, by the time you figure in traffic, etc.

 

Lee's is a very reputable company. You could also contact Couples OR and see if they are taking anyone to Negril and try and catch the bus there.

 

I was at CSA and loved it! Negril was beautiful, but we had no problem with nudity. Couples doesn't allow nudity on public areas of the property. In Negril all beaches are public, be we never saw anything other than a topless woman, and not many at that. I meant to walk down to CN, but never did. We were having too much fun where we were.

 

COR will be open by the time your honeymoon rolls around, so you could stay there if you just wanted a change of scenery.

 

If you have any questions about Couples, please feel free to PM me. I'll be more than happy to help anyway I can!

Just in case you don't want to travel far: We got married at ROR and went next door to Sandals Dunn's River and were amazed. It was a 2 minute bus ride and was incredible. The people were so nice and even though the resort was smaller than ROR it was romantic and was wonderful. I highly recommend it and it didn't take anytime to go next door. Check it out!!

Yes, the thought about going somewhere so close does make it even more appealing....im not overly a fan about having to travel past montego bay to go to another resort, and then have to travel back to montego bay for when we finally go home...but, i do want to make the best out of vacation though and see as much as we can....so going over to negril will allow us to do that!!!

 

some of the activities there sound so much fun, and i think we will be doing a lot of tours/excursions with our wedding guests around the ocho rios area..so when it comes time to the honeymoon, we would also like to have some activities planned and being in a totally different location/area of jamaica will allow us to do that!!!

 

i heard sandals dunns river is amazing though...we are looking into other sandals resorts in jamaica, just not that one cause of where its at- maybe montego bay (iffy about that) or negril.....

 

i have email lees so hopefully they will get back to me with an afforable rate!!!!

Lee's contacted me back rather quickly by phone and email!

Their rate from Ocho Rio to Negril is $150.00.....

 

So, thats not bad for the few hours to get there!!!

 

I think a random cab would cost a lot more!

 

Just thought I would update, for other brides that were inquiring as well!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
