That would be great! I definitely agree, not many reviews on here at all but from what I've ready it sounds pretty good. Looking forward to your daughter's review and pics!

YEAH! Another Riu Negril bride, that's great! Have you decided which package you're going with? I'm doing the Free Package and paying for the upgrade to a larger wedding cake and more champagne. We have 40 people booked already and more deciding later this year! I also think we're going to be renting out the Steakhouse for a private dinner reception...just in the midst of pricing this out to see how much everything will be. I'm getting so excited!!!

OMG i am beyond excited!!! I'm so looking forward to seeing/hearing how yours turns out! so far we've reserved our wedding date and time slot and are just currently working with our TA to find the best possible package so we can book!!!

As for the wedding package, i'm doing pretty much the exact same thing as you! The free package then upgrade the cake and champagne if needed. Also want the Steakhouse for supper.

That's amazing that you already have 40 people booked! I can't wait until we actually book and get our save-the-dates out so we can see how many we'll actually get.

It's an awesome feeling to have so much done so far and know that so many of our friends and family are able to join us!

Hi Ladies:

 

My daughter just got married at the RIU Negril. She is drafting a review so that I can share with all of you along with pictures. Hopefully we should have them up by this weekend. I just wanted to let you guys know that there is no free package at the RIU Negril. The only free Package is at the RIU Tropical Bay. We will share all the details with you on our experience.

Can't wait for the review! I was told by the WC at their main office that it does offer a free package and that was what I signed up for. Not sure if there's difference between this year and next.

HI Deb:

 

My daughter thought there was a free package but when Dionne sent the paperwork it stated that the only free wedding packages were offered at the RIU. I would recommend that you send Dionne an email regarding this. She will respond in a day or two. We found that on Monday's she would respond quicker than other days. If you have an outside photog they will charge you $200 for the day pass and you can't allow them in your room. My daughter is working on the review as I feel it would be fair for her to give her review as the bride rather than me being the mothe of the bride. The wedding was beautiful and she had a good weather. I loved Negril and can't wait to go back!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
