Poll: Did you do a site visit??
Posted 04 June 2009 - 10:56 AM
When we got engaged & started wedding planning we knew we were going to have a DW. Our first choice was Vegas but for some reason the pricing wasn't right at the hotels that we had contacted. One day DH was looking at our cruise pics of Jamaica & we talked about how that was one of our favorite ports during the cruise, thats what got the ball rolling on JA.
Like Danielle, I then hit the internet & trip advisor for reviews of JA resorts. ROR had great reviews at the time & when I contacted the WC and asked for more info on ROR pricing, the pricing was within our budget.
Then somehow, thank god, I found BDW. After coming here & finding positive reviews/experiences & pics from past ROR brides, it sealed the deal! It also helped tremendously that the future ROR brides & BDW as a community shared so much info.
Ofcourse I was worried about us taking the chance blindly since we hadn't been to ROR before, but again, we loved it as did everyone else & I will never regret doing it the way we did!

I loved Las Caletas too (so beautiful and the staff was fantastic), but PF was just more our style. However, site unseen we probably would have gone with LC which would be a great choice.

It was also the cheapeast five star for the time period we are going -over christmas/new years, which helped make our decision!

As far as the location goes, it was more process of elimination. Most of the hotels/resorts have requirements for the # of guest staying on the property vs. # of guests at the wedding. This would not work for me since I have so many family members living in Jamaica, that would not be staying at the hotel.
AND, I picked the worse day of the year, New Years Eve. This knocked out many more places. In the end, I am using a hotel owned by a relative of my mom's.
