Transportation from ROR to honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I will be getting married at ROR in March 2009 and staying at the RIU Palace Tropical Bay in Negril a 2nd week for our homeymoon. Our transportation from one resort to the other is not included with our package & our travel agent doesn't seem able to arrange this for us !?

 

Has anyone travelled from Ocho Rios to Negril. Any suggestions for arranging transportation, good drivers to recommend and/or idea of how much this would cost?

 

Thanks so much :)

Hey..Im getting married at ROR and then honeymooning at Couples Negril....

 

I was worried about this, but researched my options...

1) You can take a private cab/taxis from ROR to the RIU in Negril...I got a quote from Lees Travel- who apparently from many brides comes very recommended...She quoted me around $100. The distance between to two locations is about 3 hours or so...but you and your husband would be able to sit comfortably in an air conditioned cab alone and not have to worry about stopping if you didnt want to..

 

If you would like to contact Lees Travel, the number is somewhere within this forum you just have to search for it...She was very very friendly and responded back quickly to my email request not only with an email herself but also a phone call..

 

2) The other option is to head back to the airport and then catch the free shuttle from the airport to the RIU Negril...This is what we are going because its free, and also we are able to go back to the airport with our guests and say goodbye to them there....

 

My travel agent said that she would coordinate the times to as when the guests will have to leave and when there is a shuttle going to the other resort for us so that it sort of matches up....

 

Hope this helps!

My fiance and I are honeymooning at Couples Swept Away and the people at Couples said we could get in touch with them from ROR to coordinate our ride there. I think we too will go back to the airport to see our guests off and take the free shuttle from there....but I think she said it might be possible for them to pick us up directly at ROR.....which wouldn't make much sense for them but oh well! :)

We are leaving Dec 6 and getting on married on the 11th

 

Married at ROR to Honeymoon at R Negril exact same as you!

 

We booked the transfer through Lees tours, her charge is 160.00 - she was the cheapest we found. We also tried Jamaica Tours | Jamaica-tour.com he was 175.00.

 

The standard taxi charge we were told was 180.00.

 

Sunqest who we are going with was $220.00.

 

Hope that helps...I am not too sure where the 100.00 quote came from to be honest with you from Lees Tours, but they are great in the sense that they will give you a tour on the way as well.

I dont know, but she did quote me $100...but we arent going with them anyways...I would definately bring my email where she quoted me the $100 if I did end up going with Lees...

 

Ohh, I guess the free shuttle is only with your package if you got one, in which our is Sunquest and the shuttle is included both to the Riu and back to the airport...

Thanks so much for your info ladies! We are travelling with Sunquest as well but I did not like the idea of going back to the airport. Lee's sounds great.. I will be e-mailing them shortly!

 

Thanks again smile03.gif

Sunquest, like most tour operators include transfers in their packages but there is a charge. The only time transfers are free is when the resort provides them as an extra amenity such as Sandals and Couples resorts.

Hi Maureen,

If Couples provides transfers, do you think they would pick us up at ROR to get us down to Negril? My fiance & I are getting married at ROR and then honeymooning at Couples Swept Away.

Thanks for the info wink.gif Does it not make sense to go back to the airport then? How much time would that add on to our travel timehuh.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
