      Hi Everyone, I am still shopping around for a destination resort...but the Iberostar is one of the resorts at the top of my list. Please post reviews when you have a chance, it would be nice to hear about everyone else's experiences...pictures too!

      Also, I just talked to a travel agent who said that the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach had just closed...she did not have details, but seemed a little concerned about the property. However, when I looked on trip advisor...somebody reported that it was closed for reno's... Do you guys have any insight about this??

      Thanks, Jess.

        Hi Jess!

        The Beach location is closed temporarily. The manager stated it is due to low occupancy from the economy. A couple of travel agents have told me that they plan to re-open when the travel season picks up again in November.

          Hello Ladies,

          I had a wonderful time in Jamaica! The Iberostar properties are beautiful. We stayed at the Beach, which totally met my expectations. However, we decided to move our wedding to the Suites. We spent an entire day at the Suites. Nicole, the wedding coordinator is great! I have pictures of both resorts and I can answer basic questions for both resorts as well.

          Due to my demanding job, I am unable to participate daily. I love planning and sharing on the forum, so I'm going to try to visit more often.

            Breeze616, below are the answers to your questions. Dodds, I sent you a private message regarding your marriage certificate.

            1)I know the chair covers and linens are included - but do they have those bows/ties you can put on the chairs? In different colors?

            -Yes, they do have chair bow. You can choose from silver, gold and white.

            2)Can you choose what flowers you put on the cake?

            -Color coordinating standard flowers are included. However, ypu can upgrade your flowers for a charge.

            3)Are there power outlets and somewhere we can run a slideshow (I'd bring the projector) in Uncle Tony's? (preferably the outdoor area? I saw some other pictures that look like there might be blinds or something they can pull down to block out sunlight that might do well..)

            - I was unable to get a yes or no answer as to whether the outlets are available. I looked for visible outlets but did not see any. As you know, the restaurant is open air. There are screens that can be pulled down in the event of rain. In my opinion, I don’t think Tony’s is the best place to run a slideshow. I would still e-mail Sandy as she can provide you with exact details. I asked Sandy many questions, which she failed to answer to my satisfaction.

            4)Can you please see what the total capacity is at Tony's Restaurant, more specifically, how many people/tables would fit in the 'roofed' area (where the ceiling fans are)?

            -Another question I did not receive a straight answer. We told Sandy that we are expecting 80 people. She assured us that we would not have a problem seating all of our guest on the roofed area. Most couples seat their entire party in the roofed area and use the patio as a dance floor. However, the patio floor is not flat and smooth so dancing in heels may be a challenge.

              Thank you so much Lauren for finding all that out for me. After seeing the patio ground I know I wont be able to do my professional dancing on that floor and I really don't know if there is room inside for all the guests and a dance floor! Esp considering you need 50 guests to even USE Uncle tonys (privately).

              Was Aunt Ruby's much bigger?

                  Sabrina,
                  Aunt Ruby's was much bigger. The outside was broken up into two sections. Nicole told me that most couples eat on one side and use the other as a dance floor. Aunt Ruby's also has an inside eating area. The Suites also has an option for an indoor reception at the Mediterranean Restaurant.
                  Taylor,
                  I'll post a link to the pictures. The link has pictures of the Beach Resort. I have more pictures on my fianc©’s camera. I will post those once I get his camera and upload them to my computer.

                      Ladies,

                      Below is the link to the pictures of IRHB. I took many exterior shoots because it was so beautiful.
