All the pictures Ive seen of Riu Negril are awesome. There's probably not a whole lot of difference b/w Negril and RTB, when it all comes down to it. Personally, Id be happy anywhere hot, with lots of good beach, tons of drinks and food. Oh yeah, and FI can come along too!

Hi Lisa,

I am going through the same thing right now. I am quite stressed because I haven't actually booked anything yet and we want to get married Nov 2009. I am travelling to Jamaica the week of Jan 11 so that I can visit ROR, Grand Bahia Principe and Sunset Jamaica Grand. Once I go to the resorts and see the grounds for myself, I will be able to make my final decision. I heard the grounds at Grand Bahia Principe is absolutely beautiful. I will take plenty of pictures. PM me after Jan 18 if you want to see them. I will send them to you.

Hi Lisa, glad to know I am not the only one getting stressed over where to stay and also undecided between the Riu negril and RTB. I am a UK B2B and we will be getting married March 2010.

 

I would love to get married at the RTB but also have to consider family who wish to be at the wedding and are unsure about the diffrence in the cost of the RTB.

 

I have also been informed by the TA that there must be 80% of wedding guests staying at the same hotel as the wedding, so unable to book RTB if most of our family members decide to stay at the Riu Negril. Some family members also wanting to wait until later in the year to book to see if cost's come down.

 

Reading Travel Advisor they also seems to be very mixed reviews although the pictures look beautiful for both hotels. I am a beach person and again conflicting reviews about the beach at the Riu Negril.

 

Hopeing to have made a decision and have everything booked by the end of March 2009.

I myself have switched my reservations 3x. From ROR to RTB and now to Riu Negril. Riu Negril is cheaper for the guests than RTB, so I switched. But now I'm seriously considering Coral Cove. If you've been to the ROR and want something different Coral Cove might be the spot for you. I heard Coral Cove is beautiful, you can ride a bike around the village and it's very safe. Guests rave about it's beauty and not having to lock their doors with no worries. It's also only 10 miles to Negril if you want the nightly entertainment. Coral Cove is secluded and private. Heard the food was A+++ . The price was very reasonable also. We got a quote for 7 nights, wedding package included, reception, 2 hours of steel band for $3200. Their menus are awesome! Outside guests will be able to attend for $75 (+18.25% tax/gratuity). Let me know if you would like more info, I'll post it.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
