Sloan's RIU Palace Tropical Bay Wedding/Honeymoon

Recommended Posts

Hi, Sloan. Thanking you so much for posting your review. It is really helpful. I am really interested in booking the tours for my wedding party. Can you please tell me what the price per person was for each tour? Were you able to negotiate better than the posted rates?

Thanks for the review Sloan. I'm so sad we couldn't go there like I originally wanted, it looks so beautiful! I can't wait to do that horseback riding in the sea. I am also very happy that you didn't freak out about planning and did the "free" thing because that's what I plan on doing and yours turned out beautiful....mmmmmm Ting and Vodka...DELICIOUS..pretty sure there will be a ban on that a couple days into me being there as well :)

Dunn's River Falls: $90US (lunch not included)
Black River Safari: $90US (lunch not included)
Canopy Zipline: I think was $70US, my BIL and his girlfriend did this one and they both loved it. Can't remember if lunch was included or not.
Sunset catamaran cruise to Rick's Cafe: $50US (lunch and open bar included)
Snorkeling/Picnic: $60US - I think... (lunch, open bar and snorkeling equip included)
Horseback Riding: $60US - I think...(lunch not included, but we left @ 0900 and were back on the resort by 1400)

Keep in mind that we stayed in Negril, so some tours will vary by price according to where you're coming from (at least that's what I imagine). Dunn's was pricey because our bus ride was 3 hours long. The actual ticket to get into Dunn's River was only $15US... it was a fun day, but a bit of a ripoff.

Check out Chukka Caribbean Tours or Lee's Tours as well. We didnt negotiate any prices and just bought our tours straight from our Sunquest rep at the resort. We're lazy and bartering is not my strongsuit.


Hope that helps a bit! Cheers!

    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
