    We were in the actually Rivera building. It had an amazing view which I know you saw from our youtube videos. lol. We have already decided when we go back we are staying in the same room. We didn't have any of the upgrades. It was a basic room but we loved it. All the rooms seem like they are great though. I loved all the dark wood and huge beds! I think all rooms have that. We originally were going with cheapest room possible on the Manor side. Then we decided this might be only time we were going so we upgrades to the ocean front. My husband had never even seen the ocean til then! Honestly we paid only alittle more for that. The first thing I did every morning was look out the double doors to see how the sun reflected off the water for an amazing blue color.
    I hope you are looking for too much parting! The resort really dies early. There is alot of drinking through the day though. BTW try an Jamaica Smile. You will be hooked after that..lol I guess there is sooo much to do through out the day people just crash at night. Plus the sun sets really early. The night we got married we ended up at the night club and by 11:30 or 12 we were the only ones in the club. It honestly was a lot of fun though! Then we went swimming (in our clothes except Hollis who stripped down to his skibbies..lol) When it is closer to time for you to go, ask me about the private pool. I will tell you how to get to it. Hardly anyone knows it's there and you will be the only ones in it! Plus it is alittle deeper than the others. Downfall is no bartender there..lol oh I just want to go back!!! Wanna hide me in your suitcase?

      LOL If my mom finds out I hid ANYONE in my suitcase she'll kill me...she's okay with us going alone but said she would kill me if anyone went...all or nothing!! lol

      Okay so the place shuts down a little early lol...well as long as there is a bartender SOMEWHERE, Tom and I will make a party for ourselves lol. You're right, though, we will probably crash early after all the sun and activities! There are two nightclubs, right? I suspect the one on the manor side is even less popular than Riviera.

      I'd love to know about the private pool...I will remember to ask you when it's closer! I'd also love to know your favourite restaurants...I heard it's sometimes hard to get reservations at certain places...will we be allowed to make all of our reservations as soon as we get there?

      Getting more and more excited with each day!! 107 days left!!

        I am just flat out jealous..lol I would love to be doing it all over again! I love being married and where I am right now but to do it all over again would be awesome!
        There really is only one restaurant that you will have trouble getting into and I honestly cannot remember the name of it right now. It is in the Rivera building and you will have to pass it to get to the beach. We went as soon as it opened and got right in the one night. It was really good but I like the Italian place a lot to.
        I know if you plan on going to Dunn's River there is a place there that is hard to get into but I herd it is amazing! We tried and couldn't get in. We didn't call until our 5th or 6th day there I really wish we would have gone though. I would have liked to have seen how the two resorts differ.
        The private pool is really close to the basketball court. Kinda close to the pool with the water that fall off the side wall. It looks like you are going back to some cottages or onto staff area but you are not. That is just in case I don't talk to you before you go.

          Thanks as always! I'm gonna do research on the restaurants (I like good food!) and plan out a couple of the really good ones! (Tom's spontaneous but I like a plan lol) Maybe I'll see if I can reserve at Dunn's River the first or second day...we're staying 10 days so maybe we'd get one near the end!

          Thanks for the directions to the private pool too!

            Are you referring to the pool behind the watersports area and behind the alcov ewhere they have nightly entertainment?

            That pool is great !

              I think we are talking about the same pool. It is the one that has all the tall green tree's and bushes. The pool is deeper that too, like 8 feet. It is VERY private. I know most don't know about it unless they study the map..lol We did not find it until the day before we left. It's not the one that is out in the open that has the volleyball net set up at it.

                Yup- that's the one!

                I also like the pool on the manor side with the waterslide- it's not as private but the snack bar is right next to it.

                I do not recommend going down on your tummy- you get all tore up!

                  Do you still have pictures of all of the different wedding locations at Sandals Ocho Rios? I am getting married there in Nov 2009 and wanted to see what all the different areas looked like in order to get an idea of the types of flowers and decorations to order.
