Goodbye Beaches... Hello Riu

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was looking at Beaches too, but for in the Bahamas. And now booking with the Riu. I also found there were to many restrictions and hidden costs. What I love about the Riu is you dont have to pay for your wedding costs until you get to the resort. So we get to see what we are getting before the money is put down. The only thing I am not sure about is the photographer. I dont like the pricelist they gave me and I havent seen the work from prev. weddings. But other than that, I am so excited. I cant wait. I have heard so many good things about the Riu chain. Your wedding will be amazing. Cant wait to hear how it goes. :) Happy sleeping.

Congrats on making the change! My mom always says "Doubt means don't - whether it's a table, a man, or a pair of shoes". I don't know where she got that from - but I constantly repeat it!

Congrats on making a decision that is right for you.

 

I am also going to be a Riu Ocho Rios Bride. I went through it all too, all the research. We were booked at a Rose Hall resort that just wasn't up to our standards for the price we were paying, it was too much for too little and we also checked out Trip Advisor and saw pictures of the resort and the beach and the rooms were very mediocre not very pleasing to the eye. Then we had also decided on trying to do Beaches as well since we needed a family friendly resort but it was not in our price range either. We are very satisfied w/ the Riu so far, loved the pictures on Trip Advisor, and also like that we are able to pay for the wedding and other things upon our arrival (after all what you see is what you get). We also like their free package and the options available to us at the resort.

 

~Hope you have a beautiful wedding day and a wonderful time

Congrats! We had changed too. It is very stressing! Lol as we all know!

 

Kyle and i didnt see the back of our eyelids for weeks! And because of this forum after doing more extensive research we decided that Breezes rio bueno wasnt right for us either and we switched to Riu Mo Bay.. Completely stoked and happy!!

 

 

Goodluck to everyone and Congrats!
