Please help! Riu Ocho Rios

For the Caprice Package that they offer, I see it says semi private dinner for couple and guests, now is this held at one of the all inclusive restaurants? Or will I also have to pay seperately for my guests dinners? Also, did the pricing of the rooms for your guests seem resonable, was there a discount for multiple bookings?
I would appreciate any information anyone has to help me out in getting a better idea of Riu!

I am actually planning a wedding at the Riu Ocho Rios in May 2011. I also got the same answer, nothing can be done til March 2010. I have gotten a ton of info from this site to get answers to questions I already have. We are looking to do the free package. We are probably having about 30 people and are looking to rent out the disco for 2 hours after the dinner. The dinner is included. This site will definitely help answer as many questions as you have. It looks like a beautiful resort and all the reviews from brides that already got married there seem they were very happy with the turnout. Good luck with your planning. I found my info by just searching for Riu Ocho Rios reviews. It seemed to give a bunch of info we were looking for.

Congratulations on your wedding! I have a question about Michael. I got his current price list. When you get him for 4 hours, is this 4 hours straight? This may be a stupid question but I wasnt quite sure how this worked. If you want him for when you cut the cake and do your dances, do you paay him by the hour straight through? Thanks!

I'm getting married at ROR on December 10, 2009. I am going to have the resort's free wedding package and may or may not get a few upgrades when we arrive.
now is this held at one of the all inclusive restaurants?
Yes, dinner is held at one of the all inclusive restaurants. I know the free package covers dinner at the Mammee Bay Steakhouse (although it is not private but semi-private). I haven't read any complaints from anyone in this forum who had the semi-private dinner. The private dinner is a separate add on/ upgrade and there is a per person charge.
Or will I also have to pay seperately for my guests dinners?
A private reception will require a per person charge. It is true that 80% of your guests are required to stay at your resort to avoid cancellation of your wedding, so most guests will already be covered for the meal since the restaurant is on site, as for other guests who do not stay at the resort they will be required to purchase a day pass to attend the wedding and reception.
Also, did the pricing of the rooms for your guests seem resonable, was there a discount for multiple bookings?
The pricing was very reasonable and one of the reasons that we booked. If you book at least 5 rooms you can get a free wedding package. However, I am unaware of any other discounts as far as multiple bookings are concerned. Here is a brief listing of some rates that we were given when we decided to create all inclusive airfare included group package for our guests through our TA's at Liberty Travel
For a 3nights/ 4 day stay December 9-12, 2009
Double Occupancy $898/per person
Single Occupancy $1.070
Triple Occupancy $885/per person
Child rate Under 12 $494
Prices may have changed and may vary depending on which agency you book with but it gives you an idea/ ball park figure.
~Good Luck and Happy Planning
