Sandals Negril or Couples Tower Isle?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! My fiance and I are planning a Jamaica wedding for sometime between December 2010 - February 2011. We expect to have about 30 guests. We are trying to narrow down resorts and any help/advice would be appreciated.

 

I heard that there are weddings every 15 minutes at Sandals and that the ceremony can be rushed and cookie cutter. This is NOT what we want. I do think the Sandals Negril resort looks very beautiful from the photos though.

 

I also have been checking out Couples Tower Isle. It looks smaller but the idea of getting married on a private island appeals to me. It also seems that the Couples resorts include more in their wedding packages.

 

Also any opinions about other Couples resort locations would be welcomed!

 

Thanks!

Welcome, I am getting married at Couples Sans Souci, if you do a search there is a some information on the this forum but not alot. Have you checked out the couples message board, I did get alot of information from there, also Debbie the states side coordinator answers all questions even the silly ones lol.

 

Couples Sans Souci, only has 150 suites, but the grounds are stunning!

We are also getting married at Couples San Souci, then transferring to Couples Tower Isle for our honeymoon. The message board on the Couples website is very useful, as stated before.

 

I believe there is the extra charge to get married on the private island, around $4000....depends on what your budget is, but that was too much for us.

 

Sandals was way too expensive for us, the basic wedding is inclusive if you stay 7 nights in a concierage level room ( the pricy ones). The Couples basic wedding package is free if you stay 3 nights in any one, which allowed us to do the honeymoon switch. Good luck on your decisions!

 

We'll be at Tower Isle from 12/3 to 12/6 :)

Just putting my 2 cents in.. I've never been to a Sandals resort, however my fiance and I went to San Souci last May and it was absolutely stunning!! There are no other words! We ran into several couples at the resort saying they would never go to another Sandals resort again after going to the Couples resorts!

 

But I was having the same trouble deciding where to have the wedding when I came across Iberostar Grand Rose Hall! They only have 1 wedding a day there.. as well as the other Iberostar resorts which are right next door I believe. As soon as we saw that we fell in love with everything else!

 

Congrats ladies!! and good luck preparing for your DW's :)

I have never been to a Sandals resort, but I just returned from CTI in December 2010 and I have to say that the wedding planner, LaToya was doing a great job getting the brides/wedding parties in order. I visited the resort bc my sis was having a non-traditional ceremony there and have since decided that my FH and I will be doing a traditional ceremony there in Nov 2011.  I think that the resort is a nice size and it the atmosphere is very intimate.  As said in previous post, contact Debbie with any questions, she will answer them all.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
