I'm so relieved RMB opened!! I'm new to this site and have been a little freaked out. It was scary to book a wedding at a place that you have never been to and that wasn't even open yet. Thank you so much!!!!!


Does anyone have any pics yet or stories?

Hi - I rcvd the same info packets from Diana as "indigo" rcvd. This is all that they have been able to offer. I had email contact with Keneika once, I have since sent her an email and she has not responded.

This was the last I heard from her...see below:

Hello Vicki,

"My name is Keneika, I am the wedding coordinator for Riu Tropical Bay

and I will be assist you with wedding for Riu Montego Bay.

Please be advised that at the moment I am still waiting for information

on flowers and the photo packages, so I won't be able to send you these

information. However, for wedding reception we will be using our steak

house restaurant which I will send you the menu soon. If you have any questions they may email me at the hotel address , as the

wedding email address is not ready as yet. The hotel's address is

hotel.montegobay@riu.com. in the subject line you may write "Attention



So I followed these instructions and sent a follow up email to the email address above - with attention to Keneika.


Diana Guzman has been very helpful. She is the wedding dept/sales coordinator. She is not located at the RMB resort though.


I did see a couple of reviews on trip advisor - and I did read something that I am very nervous about.. I found out the beach is MANMADE... did anyone know this? I am such a beach person and this is so upsetting to me!


AHHHH! how nervewracking! Our wedding is booked for June 27, 2009

Yes, me too. I'm not too convienced that is actually it. Time will tell. I emailed the hotel email address also on last monday the 1st asking them to email me any info available. I got a reply from Keneika on Thursday saying they had nothing to email yet but she could fax me a resort map. She emailed me Friday and Saturday saying she tried to fax but didn't get a fax tone. I'm unsure of what that means as I have been getting faxes fine both days. My caller id shows no attempts. I will just wait until they have the info to email.

Hello Ladies,


I received an email from Keneika confirming my wedding date and time. The email also ask that I respond with which time I would like my reception. The reception will be at the Steak House at either 6:30-8:30 or 9:00 - 11:00. I think the last reception is 9:00 pm - 11:00pm. They only offer two slots. I chose 6:30 - 8:30. She also sent info on extras (i.e. renting the disco, private reception, etc). I have attached the docs she sent me below. I still haven't received pics of the Gazebo or beach area yet. I will try calling her today to see if I can get pics. I also ask that she clarify the cost of chair covers with bows. Still no answer on that either. But, I will be patient because I understand that they probably have their hands full with the grand opening.


When I get more info I will be sure to update everyone.

Hi Everyone,


I too am considering the RMB for my wedding, but was a little hesitant because of it being a new hotel. I am waiting patiently for some riviews from trip advisor. Thanks for all your info, it is really helpful!

Here are 2 online albums of more pics from the RMB:


Picasa Web Albums - Jane - RIU Montego Bay


Riu Montego bay pictures from friends & fun photos on webshots


The first set has some great beach shots.


Also, reviews should be coming soon. According to the TA forums it takes about a week for reviews submited to be posted on the website...so they should be coming soon. Just remember to take the reviews with a grain of salt. It just opened and during a hurricane no less.

    • 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!!
