    Hi Everyone,

    I have tried to write 2 reviews and they were VERY long. I guess too long because when I clicked to post the site had kicked me off. I cannot write it for a third time so I will give you a brief review.

    My wedding was a dream at the ROR. I loved every minute of it and would do it all over in a heart beat. I got married at the beach gazebo, rented the linen walkway, had chair covers with orange sashes, hired a steel drum band, ate at the Mammee Bay steakhouse, and rented the disco for 2 hours. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! Chandlyn is amazing and set everything up exactly how I had asked. I set up a meeting with her prior to arriving.

    The photographer Michael was amazing. He was prompt adn captured all the right moments. Currently awaiting my photos.

    The resort is absolutely stunning and clean. The rooms are beautiful (we got a junior suite).

    The food is ok. We loved the Mammee Bay Steakhouse and the Japanese a la cartes. The others were good. We had no problems whatsoever reserving seats at the restaurants. We did have to go each day to do so but never waited long.

    The beach is beautiful, the service is great...besides the fact that the maids don't do the rooms until 4 in the afternoon. The day of my wedding I had to make my own bed (my only complaint).

    You are not going to regret your choice if you get married at the ROR.

    Any questions do not hesitate to ask. I love talking about my experience....oh yeah Renova Spa is incredible. I brought a picture and they did my hair exactly as I asked. I was very happy. I also LOVED LOVED my bouquet. I chose the cascading tropical flowers.

    I could go on and on but I'm afraid I will get bumped off again.

    Jennifer

      Congratulations, glad you had a wonderful time. Can I ask did you get a room upgrade when you arrived, I have emailed them already but they said it depends on availability.

      Also what was the weather like, I have been scanning the forecast & I saw they have had rain on quite a few occasions? Also if it did rain, did it last for long??

      Sorry for all the questions, we only have 2 weeks from next Tuesday we are departing, so getting very anxious now?!?

      Congrats again, looking forward to seeing your pics, we have booked Michael too!

        Hi,

        We chose the junior suite when we booked. We weren't offered an upgrade from that and we didn't ask. We were very happy with the junior suite. Did you go with a hotel room or suite? Both are very nice. I know when we were there it was VERY busy (Feb 21-2 and it was getting even more busy as the week went on. As part of the Caprice Wedding Package they offered a late check out when available.........that wasn't available.

        It rained for about an hour the entire week. It was absolutely beautiful. Some days were cloudy but still very warm. All in all it was mostly sunny and hot.

        Michael was great. Very professional and accomodating.

        The resort is BEAUTIFUL.

        Jennifer

            That is so great to hear. Im getting married there next feb. I have my ceremony booked at 1pm do you think this is too late/early? Did you rent your sashes etc. there and how much did the disco cost for 2 hours? Also who did your hair at Renova...I want to make sure I get somebody that is good. Sorry for all the questions :)

            Im glad to hear you had a fabulous time and CONGRATULATIONS Mrs. :)

              Thank you so much Jennifer, we originally booked a standard room but think we will ask for an upgrade to a junior suite if it is possible, we will be there for 2 weeks.

              Really looking forward to it now, can't believe we're leaving in 2 weeks!!!!
