      Hi Jules23, I considered and visited both resorts so I may be able to help. I chose Iberostar so I might be a little biased :) But really it depends on what you're looking for. Grand Palladium is a huge resort with a really cool pool, but the beach is a bit small and rocky. GP will be a whole lot less expensive for your guests... Iberostar can be pretty expensive, especially during the high season. To me it was worth it though, the food at Iberostar was better in my opinion and I liked the beach there more. Let me know if you have any questions about either place... I'm not voting for either because I think they are both good choices, just depends on your style and what you're looking for. :)

        Thanx for you advice!

        I think we are about 95% for Iberostar! Our wedding is only going to be 30-40 people - so relatively small! And our main concern was the FOOD! I have heard only good things about Iberostar and their food. Plus, I know Palladium doesnt have a very nice beach area - more focused on the pool, therefore I would chose Iberostar over this factor as they apparently have a nicer beach area I think having a destination wedding (especially on the beach) it should look top notch! lol. Hopefully your wedding planning is going well. Your getting closer and closer! IM sure ill be asking you questions in the coming months!

          No prob, feel free to ask any questions! I know I had a ton when I first started planning. The Iberostar thread on here is really helpful too:

              I'd Say Iberostar except that I've been trying to contact them for the last three weeks to book a date with no sucess, but maybe you'll have better luck! The Grand Palladium was one of the other ones I looked at and seemed nice.

                  I e-mailed them at weddings.suites@iberostar.com.jm. If that doesn't work, you can try calling them at 1 876 680 0000, and ask for the wedding coordinator (Nicole).

                    It took a little while for Nicole to get back to me at first when I sent an email. Once I called her, she has returned all of my emails very promptly.

                      Hi Guys,

                       

                      I have booked my wedding date at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites for July 1, 2012. We are having the ceremony and our guest stay at the suites and my Fiance and I will be staying at the Iberostar Grand. We felt the Grand was too expensive to ask guest to pay to stay there the suites was a little more affordable. Still expensive but I am a firm believer you pay for what you get and good FOOD is very important.

                       

                      One of my biggest questions is " Does anyone know anything about their DJ". The DJ is one of the most important part of the reception. We have combined a mixed crowd of 80 guest ages 30-65 and we need great music!!

                       

                      Did anyone use their DJ? How was it?

                       

                      Flying our personal DJ in to play for a couple of hours seems a lot.
