    I agree with Maureen in that the Negril price package sounds about right. Although I am getting married at Sandals Dunn's River, for our 2nd week, we plan on staying at the Whitehouse and Negril is actually more expensive so about $2500 per person including insurance is actually pretty decent.

    Maureen, I have a question for you. If I had put a deposit down ($200 per person) to secure my dates for Dunn's and Whitehouse, would I lose the deposit money if I decided to go with a packaged trip? I initially decided to book the hotel and flight separately since at the time the package deals were not so great and I wanted to secure a wedding date. I'm still not changing the wedding date, but I am seeing right now that there is a good package deal for us to depart 1 day earlier (Friday vs. Saturday). Right now the flight prices are high and I'm worried that they are not going to drop prior to our wedding date in April. I'm hoping that I won't have to pay any additional service fees since it's not like I am switching hotels or anything. Although my dates will change by 1 day.

      I personally do not think $5000 is too much for Sandals Negril. We are getting married there in March 2011 and got an amazing deal of 2 free nights & 60% off and it's still costing us $7700. We're travelling from Ireland, so airfair is $3625 minimum & we are going for a plantation suite! Yes it's probably going to be the most expensive week ever!, but we have been to regular all-inclusive's for a week for under 3K but want something extra special...and that is what you are paying for! Sandals is not just all-inclusive, it is Luxury included & the difference, as the pro's have already pointed out, are huge! I mean you can go water skiing whenever you want, I will have a personal butler & if I want dinner on my balcony with a bottle of champagne, I can have it! No extra cost! That is why it costs what it does, and trust me...it will be worth it!!!!
      Isn't it amazing to have found someone who gets you 100%

          It was tough decision for us as well. We went the Riu for our wedding because it was more afforable for our guest. We are moving to a Sandals resort for our honeymoon. We will be there a total of nine days. It all depends on what you are looking for. For us we wanted the best of both worlds for us and them. Our guest are spending about $900-1100pp but our trip is about $5000.

              Are you set on that particular resort or that particular travel agent?

                Well, after everything I have read and looking into other resorts, we are sticking with what we booked. It is getting close now and we are trying to finish up taking care of everything. Only 71 days!

                  Wow! I wanted to go to Sandals but unfortunately, we have couples coming with their whole family so we decided to go with kid-friendly ROR.

                  Our wedding is Nov 2010 and got the all-inclusive package of $3200 per couple, with a condition that if the rate goes down, we can change the booking to the lower rate only once time.

                    Is that $3200 per couple including airfare for the RIU? I am looking at $3200 per couple incl. airfare for the Sunset Grande in Ocho Rios. Then we are planning to spend out second week at Tensing Pen in Negril - I've budgeted about $6000 total for our 2 weeks.

                      Sandals Negril is a very nice resort! You are paying for the food, drinks, room, airfare, and the security of being secluded.
                      My FI and went there in during the off season and we paid about $2500 for about four nights, so your price is just about right.
                      It's well worth it!
                      Negril is considered the quieter part of Jamaica and the prices are much higher than in Montego Bay. But Sandals is top notch. You will love every minute of it.
