Why did you choose Riu?
Posted 12 January 2009 - 07:06 PM
Is it because of costs, scenery, location?
Because so many brides have chosen Riu as there destinantion, I am sure it is beautiful, but I was wondering is there one deciding factor over another that aided you in you decision.

-Children and singles friendly (we had a 16 year old cousin and single brother in law travelling with us)
-Price, great value compared to many other Jamaican resorts
-Size, more stuff to do to keep 30 people occupied and more space to lose 30 people if required ;-)
-Free wedding package offered, i couldn't fathom paying extra to feed guests at an all-inclusive resort
-Looked modern and luxurious
-Nice looking (huge) beach
-No nudie beaches
-Availability, they had an opening!!
It'll be interesting to see other's responses!

My FI loves to stay at RIU's. (they always went on family vacays there)
The food and accomodations are always great
They had availability for my date
The service is top notch
It is an All Inclusive Resort
I love the gazebo-it looks beautiful in pictures w/the beach in the background

Once I joined BDW & began doing research & was able to see pics & read wedding reviews, that ultimately sealed the deal.
Then I realized how economical it was going to be for the wedding itself (the free package was rare as compared to most of the other resorts) & for my guests so the value was a definite plus.
After being there I know I made the right decision & wouldn't have done anything differently!

After doing research online and joining the forum we decided the Riu Ocho Rios. We are still currently waiting for the 2010 packages but from what I have heard/read about the Riu I am pretty sure this is the spot!
Everyone who has gotten married at the Riu has such wonderful photos and the reviews are pretty impressive. All of the people that I have spoken to have had wonderful vacations at Riu Resorts at other locations. Fortunately for me I have found a TA that has been to the ROR just recently too!
Well thats my novel! OH and the pics of the liquor dispensers had nothing at all to do with our choice! =)

no translation and ceremony would be in english
free wedding package
known for its weddings and had a good reputation
had several items we were looking for aka ..swim up bar and golf
fairly large resort so guests wouldn't be obliged to be together if they didn't wanna be
value for the price we paid
