Wedding Date: Jan 5th 2009
Strongest competitor(other resort): Riu Negril or somewhere in Maya Riviera
Deciding factor: I actually would have loved to do Montego Bay - but the timeline was too close and I wouldn't want to risk it. I chose ROR after hearing about it from so many brides here and seeing so many great pictures. We also went with Ocho Rios over Negril in general - due to my parents opinion that there will be more for guests to do in Ocho Rios (for those that like excursions and what not). I am still really excited for ROR - but if I were starting back at square one today - I would have done Riviera Maya due to price and value.

Strongest competitor(other resort): Mayan Riviera first and then Riu Negril
Price was the best at ROR for the all inclusive package (better than Mayan Riviera and Riu Negril) and we had previously ruled out DR and Cuba.
Wedding package was best (Riu's in Jamaica offered Free package, not in MR)
Better beach in Jamaica than MR.
Big resort so our families wouldn't trip over each other
Seen pictures and lloved it.
Riu Negril/Riu TB more expensive.
Ocho Rios has more excursions.
Jamaica more "exotic", most of our friends have been elsewhere in the Carribean before.
