Sunset Jamaica Grande Brides??

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had any pros or cons between the ROR and Sunset Grande as far as the wedding as well as the rooms/food/service. I'm planning on mine at the ROR in April 2011 but I'm starting to have doubts. One thing I keep reading over and over is that it's not easy to get in touch with the wedding coordinators, the beds are hard, pillows are terrible and there are problems with items disappearing from rooms. It's starting to make me re-think my decision.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know my experince,doesn't mean anything.

I booked my wedding here at first. I was so excited to be going to Jamaica, especially for my wedding. I put my deposit and had constant contact with the WC, however whenever I'd ask a question I'd get a reply back more confused then when I sent the question in the first place. I was willing to let it go,just wait to meet her to arrange everything (I though it was a good reason to have a DW, not to plan much)
But I kept reading all the reviews trip advisor and any other web site that has reviews and they were 90% bad .. I was will to take a lot of it with a grain of salt until I read a new review. A couple had gone there for their wedding. a group of 6 or 8. All of them except for 2 people got food posioning. Pictures of them hoocked up to I.V's in their hotel room. They were so sick, they didn't even feel well enough to want to get married. It was a trip from hell they said. I cancel my wedding right away (I was able to get my deposit back!!)
I wil not allow this to stop me from visiting a SJG resort in Negrill tho!! excited for that.. hopefully our first year of marriage.
Good luck with you. hope you find the perfect resort for your wedding.

OK thanks, but that is really weird! I've stayed there already last year, and not once did I hear anyone call it ROR !!??!!?

 

That's just weird. The RIU is an awesome resort, we were there for a friends wedding in sept 09, it was great, I love that place!

We went to Riu Ochos Rios in Sept 09 for a friends wedding.  The resort is amazing, food is great, entertainment is excellent and we were never bored.

 

The bad reviews you read are probably from people who are very picky.  Our room was perfect, clean, room service everyday and we have ZERO complaints from our 6 day stay there. We'd go back in a flash.

 

You'll love it.  Our friends wedding was at the beach gazebo. It was very nice, there are people watching from a good distance away but everyone respected the privacy of the event.

 

They had a poolside reception dinner which was great.

Just wondering for all the brides that have gotten married at Sunset Jamaica Grande, has anyone used the on-site hairdresser? Just wondering if I should book with them or if I should try and do my own hair for the wedding? Wanted to know how your hair turned out and if they were available to do many different styles?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
