    I'm getting married at ROR. I was wondering if I have to pay for my 2 yr old? Do anyone know......I know I have to pay for his plane ticket, but do I have to pay for him to stay on the resort?

      As insane as it is to rationalize --I mean really how much will as 2 year old eat in a week, they are charged. It may be less than the adult rate, but yes there is a fee. See what your TA can work out with the hotel.

          If I remember correctly, children 1 years old & under are free, so you do have to pay for the 2 year old. At the time of our wedding the rate for my 5 year old FG was about $88 dollars per night.

            My aunt checked into the price of taking her kids. Aged six, eight and nine. I remember her saying that it was nearly the price of an adult rate, and the five of them would stay in one standard room! Something tells me it was $1300 for a child vs. $1900 for an adult (from where I live I mean). It would probably be different for a toddler though...

              For instance it is $1500 approximately for a week and they are charging us 800 for our son who by the time of the wedding will have just turned two.

                Go to Rius website and just plug in the dates for one child and two adults. Some resorts offer free for 2-12 year olds. You know what, I don't think Riu offers the free price but they do charge you for half I think

                  I was so curious to see what the actual rates were, that I went to their website & did this. Went to Riu's site, picked ROR with dates of 5/14/09 to 5/18/09, 5 days/4 nights.
                  I put in 2 adults & 1 child under age 2.
                  These were the rates:

                  Check in: 5/14/09
                  Check out: 5/18/09
                  Adults: 2Baby/s: 1

                  Your stay in: All inclusive
                  1 Double standard, bathroom, partial sea view, balcony or terrace
                  5/14/09 -5/18/09
                  4 Night/s x 2 Adults x 155.00 USD = 1,240.00 USD
                  5/14/09 -5/18/09
                  4 Night/s x 1 Baby x 0.00 USD = 0.00 USD
                  Total cost = 1,240.00 USD

                  I then did the same thing, using the same dates & room type, with 2 adults & 1 child age 2. hese were those rates, which you will see the charge for that child is $77.50 per night:

                  Adults: 2Children: 1

                  1 Double standard, bathroom, partial sea view, balcony or terrace
                  5/14/09 -5/18/09 4 Night/s x 2 Adults x 155.00 USD = 1,240.00 USD
                  5/14/09 -5/18/09 4 Night/s x 1 Children (2 years) x 77.50 USD = 310.00 USD
                  Total cost = 1,550.00 USD

                  Lastly, just to be thorough, I changed the age of the child to 10 years old, and I got the same rate of $77.50 per night:

                  INFORMATION ON YOUR STAY

                  Check in: 5/14/09 Night/s: 4
                  Check out: 5/18/09
                  Adults: 2 Children: 1
                  BREAKDOWN ROOM/RATES

                  Rooms Price of your stay
                  Your stay in: All inclusive

                  1 Double standard, bathroom, partial sea view, balcony or terrace
                  5/14/09 -5/18/09 4 Night/s x 2 Adults x 155.00 USD = 1,240.00 USD
                  5/14/09 -5/18/09 4 Night/s x 1 Children (10 years ) x 77.50 USD = 310.00 USD

                  Total cost = 1,550.00 USD

                  So going by their site, any child 2 to 12, should pay $77.50 per night. A child over 12 is considered an adult & would pay the adult rate.
                  Also, according to their site, and to what I was told for my wedding, the maximum capacity per room is 3. The website would only allow me to choose a total of 3 in one room. I don't know how that works if you're more than a family of 3.

                    Thanks for the info, I was wondering if I had to pay for my niece, who isnt two yet... So you saved me from bugging my TA with this question.

                      They will only allow 3 per room max. I had a long discussion with a RIU staff member....

                      If you have, say 3 kids, you have to register 2 other kids to another room, but of course, you can have them stay with you. This was a big deal for us, that is, until those family members backed out (of course!!)
