bad review of ROR?

Recommended Posts

Hi - I just wanted to get some people's inputs who have been to ROR. A friend of a friend just got back from a DW there last week and she said the bride and groom were not 100% satisfied for a few reasons:

 

1) on the wedding day, the B&G thought it was very impersonal, there are 3 other weddings (4 inc yours) going on on the day so all of the photographers, etc are very rushed.

 

2) there were some hidden extras too...flowers, private table,...etc.

 

3) because they were in a wedding party, even the excursions were more than advertised.

 

I argued with my friend because I have heard absolutely no negative comments until now...any thoughts from those who have been married there?

Interesting. As a previous ROR bride I didn't feel my wedding was impersonal. There was only one other wedding on my day but it was way earlier in the day.

 

I didn't have hidden extras either. I went with the free package and didn't upgrade anything. Obviously if you upgrade your flowers out of your package it's going to be more.

 

And third, my excursions were the same price as everyone else. I was not charged b/c it was my wedding. I haven't heard of that ever before.

I haven't been there, but something about the complaints the B&G had don't sound like they should've been surprises to me. They would know the resort does more than one wedding a day ahead of time, no? And, as Calia said, if you upgrade to better flowers or a private table, of course there would be a charge for that. That's not hidden information, its common sense. So, I would say not to worry. It could be that this B&G in particular just had unrealistic expectations or that they didn't gather as much information ahead of time as they should have. I'm sure your wedding and trip will be fantastic!

well, if they had done their research they probably would have been better prepared and not had expecations that were not going to be met.

ROR has more than 1 wedding a day. alot of the bigger resorts do more than a wedding a day. if they wanted to be the only wedding they should have chosen a resort that only does 1 wedding a day or got ROR to agree that they would be the only wedding (doubt they would do this...it would have to be a pretty big wedding).

 

2) there were some hidden extras too...flowers, private table,...etc. of course there are extra costs...unless they purchased a wedding package where these costs were included....how could they think they were NOT going to get charged for flowers, private reception etc....?

 

3) because they were in a wedding party, even the excursions were more than advertised. i have a hard time buying this...so they were given a price for excursions but saw it advertised lower?...well why didn't they just go with the lower priced excursion?...or was it different excursion companies?....different companies have different rates.

 

I argued with my friend because I have heard absolutely no negative comments until now...any thoughts from those who have been married there?

i think your friend just had unrealistic expectations....weddings cost more than just regular vacations...its not like AI really means all-inclusive including your wedding costs AND private events...if that was the case, why are the 2000 other guests not having FREE private events.

Ditto. AI DW's arent completely private events, even if you go ahead and pay for a private reception -- there are still how many other non-wedding guests at the resort? If that was what she/he expected than maybe they should have had their wedding elsewhere or back home. The "hidden" expenses are clearly laid out on Riu's website... or at least they were for me. There were 3 other weddings the day of mine and it never felt impersonal for us or our guests and we shared our reception with another bride and her party. I really dont even remember hearing them or seeing them. Its all what you make it.

I didn't have much negative to say on ROR. We had a very excellent vacation and a lot of good times.
I felt we were treated quite well on our wedding day. Bartenders and staff had our backs all day.
There were some things in which i shrugged off but I wouldn't say it was anything too major.
Three weddings on our day as well. I rather enjoyed it ...had a picture taken with another bride and we shared some of our experiences.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
