    Does the ROR offer a discount for a site visit? I know several have you have gone to check the resort out before you got married there. If so, how much of a discount?

      I have not heard of such a thing with ROR. My dad was in Jamaica in January and tried to arrange to go and see the resort and the wedding locations. They wouldn't allow it, even for 30 min.

        You could probably do a day pass to check it out.

            Hmmm.....it won't hurt to ask. I'm hoping to go soon for the same reason. I'll talk with my TA to see if she can work something out for me. I'll let the forum know if I have any success.

                I know if you use destinationweddings.com under certain packages for ROR you get a 3 day site visit you just have to pay for the airfare. We are not doing the site visit but using our 3 days to go to the resort early before the wedding.
