Help... Riu Brides

Recommended Posts

Hello all! Just from reading this forum so much and seeing the wonderful experience that so many ladies have had with their Riu weddings, I believe that I want to join the club as well.

 

Anyways, I was wondering are there significant differences between the Riu in Ocho Rios, Negril, or Montego Bay.

 

 

Any advice into choosing a location would be extremely appreciated.

 

 

Thanks

Great question! I have been looking at all 3 as well and was wondering the same thing. I've never been to a Riu so it's hard for me to calibrate against other chains.

 

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

From what Ive heard ROR is a newer resort and very nice, I think MB is also a newer one as for Negril its alot older but the Tropical bay just got a full renovation and has become a palace resort which is a little more upscale.

RIU MoBay is the newest (opened Sept. '0cool.gif...ROR is only a few years old as well. RIU Negril and RIU tropical bay are on the same strip of hotels and you can walk from one to the other. I stayed in RIU Tropical Bay this summer and it was very nice. I don't know if any of them are better than the others...I guess it all depends on the location you want.

The airport is in Montego Bay, so if you stay at any of the other resorts, there is more travel involved. We chose ROR and it is about 1 1/2 hours away from the airport. This may be something you want to take into consideration.

Hi, Iv booked my wedding at the Riu Palace Tropical Bay for October this year. Purely because I have stayed there before so I know what to expect! The beach is gorgeous and I prefer Negril as it is quieter..feels more remote! Im sure whatever you decide will be the right choice as they all look lovely!smile03.gif

We chose ROR because it was the first to get back to us with availability! Hahaha! Montego Bay wasn't open yet and they were renovating one of the Riu's in Negril. I guess that means we had fewer options then. We really liked the Riu chain. The hotel was beautiful, food was great, service was really good, we all had a great time. I'm sure you'll love any Riu that you choose! I second the advice to look at pictures on TripAdvisor, man, i love that site!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
