RIU Ocho Rios Review 7/20/09 **long with pics**
Posted 07 August 2009 - 01:40 PM
Just some background about my wedding: We arrived at the RIU on July 16 and were married on July 20. We had 26 guests arriving between July 16-18, and most people stayed until July 21. On July 21 my husband and I moved to Sandals Dunnâ€™s River Villagio (which happens to be directly next to the RIU) for our honeymoon and we left there on July 28.
US AIRWAYS/ALPHA WORLD TRAVEL
The trip was very smooth overall. The transfer to the hotel was fine for us, though a couple of my guests had a bad experience. They had to wait on the bus for over 2 hours because they were the only ones there and the driver was trying to recruit more people so he could get more tips before he left for Ocho Rios. They are planning to write a letter to complain about that, but no one else had any trouble.
I would also recommend using a travel agent in your area to book your trip and your guests. It was SO much easier this way!
I was lucky enough to have friends who are frequent flyers and have a special status where they donâ€™t have to pay for checked baggage, regardless of the weight, so they were generous enough to cart down all of the items for our OOT bags! I posted a thread about these if you want to see them and read all about their contents:
