I can't offer any help with the resort but I did want to mention that we got married May 5, 2008 in Ocho Rios and the weather is AMAZING in May. It only rained about 15 minutes the whole week we were there. Happy planning!

Do you have Sandy's email address? I still haven't heard back from Loreto so I want to try Sandy instead. Hopefully she'll respond quicker. I want to book a date but no one is getting back to me! It's making me nervous!!

Congrats! I too haven't heard back yet either, It's been 2 weeks and I've followed up 3 times! I've been dealing with a WC named Loreto, but Tasha (also in this thread) has been in contact with Sandy? I've asked for her email so that I can send my request to her instead.

A travel agent might be helpful. Just went to a wedding show today (I'm from Toronto) and found a vendor there that specializes in booking destination weddings. I might have them book on my behalf (and organize a group rate) since they may have better leverage and negotiating power.

The stress begins!!!

Congrats to you also!! I received an email back from Sandy with a price list attached, but not a lot of information. She did mention that May is still all open- so that's good news!! I think I'm going to go the travel agent route too. Keep me updated and I'll do the same!

Here is Sandy's email Sandy <weddings@iberostar.com.jm>; But I also went through the a travel agent to get the room deals and the honeymoon deal Sandy is just the WC. The longest she took to contact me was a day and that was when I asked for pics.

THANKS SO MUCH TASHA!!

 

I've sent an email to Sandy and I finally got a response, ON THE SAME DAY!

The email you gave me (weddings@iberostar.com.jm) is actually different from the email I had which was weddings.suites@iberostar.com.jm

 

I guess this means that there are 2 different email addresses for each Iberostar resort? One for the Suites and one for the Beach Hotel (which is where I would like to get married and book my me and my guests)??. I'll check with Sandy.

 

I thought I'd also share the following that was emailed to me:

 

"Once staying at the Iberostar Suites you will be able to use the facilities at the Iberostar Beach Resort. But guests staying at the Beach would not have that privilege, unless they are willing to pay for the day pass of $100usd to attend the wedding."

 

Something to keep in mind if you have guests staying at both resort types.

Thank you Tasha and Angel for this information!

 

I'm working with a travel agent now, that I've used through work and he actually just got back from the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites on 12/29. He said that the suites were nicer because you had unlimited access to the restaurants, whereas at the hotel you're limited to three nights a week. But it is more expensive. And all the rooms are at least junior suites.

 

I'm going to have him price out both and then compare the two. I think if people are only there a couple nights the limited restaurants wouldn't really matter...

I thought about the Iberostar Suites Resort but I have my 2 boys and they are no kids allowed at that one. And the one Im staying at is 75 per guest. I have a problem I got my packages for my guest without getting air fare included because it seems to come out cheaper for the guest. If I got the guest to get an airfare and resort package it would be over $1200. and my Wedding package is 2100 + 17 per guest is that what sandy is working out for you? I might have over 40 people. Please let me know if there are any deals out there for airfare and any special deals offered for the wedding package.

Hi guys! I got married at the Iberostar Rose Hall on December 13th! We had 100 come to the Iberostar for our wedding. I would be happy to answer any questions you have! My email is toni0325@yahoo.com - So this is what I discovered when i got to the hotel - Loreto used to be the wedding person at the Iberostar Beach, but when the Suites opened up, they transferred her there. Sandy is the prime contact at the Iberostar Beach. I think that the reason it's hard for Sandy to respond right away sometimes, is because she's not just a wedding coordinator, she is the one that has to sit and take restaurant reservations too, sometimes for like 4 hours a day. Also, when i was there she worked like 7 days straight, so maybe she'll take like 2 or 3 days off. I dunno. But, basically, don't worry. I was so scared before i got there about how things would go, and my wedding was absolutely amazing!!! And Sandy was great. Granted, we did have some things that went a little wrong, like we made a CD for our music and all the DJ had to do was play it, and he decided to play one song over 3 times. And my husband wrote a really easy list of the names for our introductions and what songs to play and he totally messed it up and my stepdad had to do our introduction. That was a mess. Oh, and i am having some issues with the photographer about viewing the pictures he took. But overall - the welcome party, ceremony and reception were all great and our guests LOVED the resort!!! They were only upset that they didn't book a longer vacation. Feel free to post or email me!!! I never went over to the Suites so I have no idea about them. But Iberostar Beach was great if you have kids coming!

 

Good luck!! Toni

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
