    Also, the other thing we saw was that there are about 2-3 weddings there a day, so we would see brides running into each other. But that could have just been the time we were there. If you're going to take photos there and want to get away from the crowd, go down to the fish sanctuary all the way at the end of the resort, by building 4, it's pretty secluded.

      I have to say though no matter where you have your wedding, on the cliff or beach, at Riu or another resort, it's going to be beautiful and different than most weddings already.
      Apart from the wedding, our guests just had a wonderful time spending the week with us and other family and friends so i think either way it's a positive experience.

        Thanks so much for your input! It sounds like you had a beautiful wedding. We don't really have the money to go offsite, but I know that our wedding will be wonderful anyway. Thanks again for the review. It's great to hear of someone who actually went to the resort.

          I'm not sure what Riu's packages come out to be after everything but I can speculate it's less than going off-site.
          I'm sure your wedding is going to be wonderful no matter where you do it.
          I think if we knew how much everything was going to be in the end we would have done it on-site. Really, the stuff that I mentioned are minor compared to how much you're saving!

                What other small hotels along the cliffs did you look into? I have been researching Negril Escape. We are looking at Package #3, do you need to add alot to the package? It says starting at $4,612 which is great for our budget, but I'm wondering how much it will be when we include the necessary extras...i.e. DJ, and appetizer hour...

                  It really adds up. I'm not sure what their packages include. We were just sent a menu that we chose from for a specific price per person, and then you can add things like a lobster dish, dessert, appetizers, open bar, etc.
                  I think for the food it was reasonable. But once you add the open bar, DJ, etc, it really starts adding up. If you want email me directly, Jane600@hotmail.com and we can compare prices.
                  The thing is some of the other hotels on the cliffs either made you have a majority of your party stay there or you have to pay an entrance fee in addition to everything else.

                  That I know of there are The Rockhouse, Tensing Pen, and Catcha Falling Star. I know there is a lot more though because they are just all next to each other.

                    Thanks for the great review! We are thinking Jamaica so I wanted to get a feel for some of the resorts :)
