    I don't want to change your mind, but at Montego Bay the Plaza gazebo is right around everyone. It is not private at all. Everyone in the pool can watch, there is a bar right near it. However I have read reviews where people were very happy with their wedding at Montego Bay.

    Just a little note. My friend got married at Montego Bay and she had to set up her own decorations for the dinner. I think she had a few problems with the wedding planner there. Also if you are planning on using an outside photographer, make sure you stress to the wedding planner that the resorts photographer stays away from your wedding. My friend had to tell off the resort photographer because he was getting in the way of the photographer they hired.

            Thanks for the review! Sounds like you had an amazing wedding/vacation. I'll be at the Riu Negril so I appreciate the comments on Negril-based vendors. Maybe I'll come down to RTBP and join that beach party - sounds like fun!

              Thanks for the review and congrats! We are getting married at RPTB on August 7, 2009. We also booked the Junior Honeymoon Ocean View Suite, but may just stay with it and no upgrade if they don't have a king size bed. How stupid of a resort to not offer this in a room. Especially on your wedding day. Do you happen to have a pic of your rooms or, I guess we will have to see what the rooms look like when we get there and decide.
              We are getting married on the beach at 4pm. I was thinking of having our dinner at the steakhouse also. Can you use an IPOD dock in the restaurant if it's not too loud?
              After dinner I kind of wanted to go somewhere dancing. I was worried, from reading Trip Advisor, that there was not really a nightlife. We went to the Dominican Republic this past January and the resort that we stayed at seemed to unwind around 10pm also. WTF Was that club/bar nearby? or What about Rick's Cafe: is it just a restaurant or do they have entertainment as well?
              Did you use the exchange priviledges with the Riu Negril at all? I hear that it's more lively at night than RPTB.
              Congrats!

                  The night life in Negril is really good. They have bars/beach partys on the beach, the Jungle is a really fun club. If you like to dance you will really like it there. There is a lot of locals that go there. The resort its self is pretty dead after 10:00pm.

                  Ricks Cafe is fun, we went during the day. But they do have beach party nights. food and drinks are quite exspensive. The only show at Ricks is the locals jumping.

                  If you go to the Jungle or any other club. You should try to make friends with some locals and get them to buy your drinks. Drinks will be cheaper. We would just by the local a drink too. Also we found paying in Jamaica dollars, you generally got a better deal.

                  I posted some pics on the picture thread. But I didn't post pics of the room sorry. Look on Trip Advisor under travelers photos. They have some on there of the rooms.
