The Riu Montwego Bay opens at the end of the month...so no one has had a wedding there yet, but there are a few of us who have already booked RMB. I was thinking of starting a RMB date thread just like the ROR thread.

 

Which Riu: Montego Bay

Wedding Date:Feb 28, 2009

Strongest competitor(other resort): Dreams PV or Villamanga

Deciding factor: Got an unbelievable 'opening soon' deal...and I really wanted to go to Jamaica (paperwork is SO much easier)

Which Riu: ROR

 

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.

Which Riu: ROR

 

Wedding Date: April 21st 2009

 

Strongest competitor(other resort): Mayan Riviera first and then Riu Negril

 

Deciding factor:

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.
