Hilton Rose Hall Resort Montego Bay brides?

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I are considering a July 09 wedding at the Hilton Rose Rose Hall resort, but I'm surprised to not see much about it on this site. Looks like a beautiful place for weddings: Jamaica Luxury Resorts & Montego Bay Meeting Hotels - Rose Hall Resort & Spa

 

Just looking for any thoughts on this property.... any one consider it and go with someplace else? Thanks in advance for any advice :)

Hey Ladies...I just found this thread! I actually have a similar thread on the Hilton Rose Hall.

JnJ-I understand your concern about the pricing, I thought that the pricing was a bit high as well, considering that all of our guests (we have 55 booked so far) are staying at the resort on the All-Inclusive plan. But we let Charline know that and they are giving us a 25% discount! We also opted to do a less formal reception and have food 'stations' and not a buffet or plated meal.

Angie--How did you get the WC to respond so quickly? Are you working with Charline? I have been waiting for a reply from my last email for 10 days now!! It is so frustrating! We are only a little over 2 months away and I just want to make sure that they are going to be able to do everything!

I am working with Natalie, and she is pretty good for the most part!! I think we are going to do the aqueduct location, has anyone seen this in person? Also any thoughts on which is better- group booking or individual for the guests? I know we get a free nights if we book enough, but my guest will just book on their on if they find it cheaper online.

I have the exact same question. We are getting married there.....also at the aqueduct on November 27, 2009!!! (Canâ€t wait). But most of my guests are finding rates significantly cheaper prices for the all-inclusive option on line. Can we still get a discount/upgrade if we use a TA instead of the resort?

We went through a TA for most of the guests at a rate that was significantly less then what the hotel itself quoted us. Part of the wedding package that you choose is an upgrade to ocean view or ocean front (based on availability). I still haven't heard back on the free nights based on the number of people booked...as soon as I hear I will let you all know!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
