    great thanks!  in that case, i'm leaning towards the non-jamaican buffet.  You can send me your email address through PM and i'll forward them to you.  You won't be able to download them from this site (unless you have lots of posts, but i still can't download files with 100+ posts).

    PS do you mind posting the menu options on here? I'm curious even though i have 13 months to go!

      kfarkas26, did you get to try any of the sushi while you were there?  They have it listed on one of the buffet menus and I know it's available at the Grand at the Japanese restaurant and through room service.  I'm not sure if they have it at the Suites, but the Japanese restaurant at the Beach resort must have sushi as well.  Just curious if it's actually good or really crappy!

       

      The hotel confirmed that no lobster will be served.  It will substituted with shrimp until the end of June.  I wish I had known that before I chose a June wedding date!

       

      Thanks.

        since you've actually been there, one last question about the food!  how was the italian, asian, etc. in comparison to the jamaican cuisine.  i love jamaican food,and i'm sure the hotel's jamaican food is great.  but i want to know if they produce other cuisines just as well.  was their take on italian or asian food any good?

         

        thanks!

          They have pasta station every night which was good, they also have a lot of rice dishes and paella and stuff like that which we enjoyed. We did not go to the japanese restaurant and the beach, we've been to a few all inclusive resorts that have hibachi places and we never enjoy them so we skipped it this trip. The food is not food like you would get at a "real" italian restaurant in NYC or something like that or a ruths chris quality steak from the steak house but we've been to about 6 or so all inclusive resorts plus a bunch of cruises and we agreed that this was the by far the BEST food we've eaten (also the first resort where neither of us got sick) I wouldn't worry too much about the food its going to be good- and I'm sure the grand's food is even more exceptional than the suites!

            My husband and I are headed to the Grand this June 19-24 for our honeymoon and since you guys have probably done a lot of research on the property, I had a couple of questions:

             

            - I heard that the grand and the suites have beach parties at night? Has anyone else heard this?

             

            - I also heard that the restaurants at the Grand take reservations and that it is a good idea to call before you head down there to make the reservations. Has anyone come across this?

             

            - Our TA told us that because we are staying at the Grand, we have access to the suites pools and restaurants too. Is this correct?

             

            Thanks and happy planning!

              Congrats on being a MRS, hope your wedding went well! You will love the Grand, it is nothing short of GRAND!! The Grand does not have a night beach party, only a day lunch Jamaican thing, which is a think thursdays. The Suites has a beach party on Saturdays. It is highly recommended you make reservations for the dinners. We had no problem the last time we were there. The first day you arrive, your butler will meet with you and review all this, no need to call in advance. Yes you have access to everything being a Grand guest, so ENJOY!!

                Hey ladies, I'm very close to making the grand my resort of choice for my destination wedding, but I don't want a beach ceremony! Does anyone know of any other ceremony locations? They only show the beach as an option. If that's the only one that sucks!

                  They have a terrace overlooking the pools and the beach from my understanding.

                    There are three different options: terrace, beach, and an indoor atrium area. I am not positive if they will let you use the stairway or not but worth asking the WC.

                      This link should show you all the options at the Grand - it's not officially from Iberostar but it's the same thing the WC sent me.
