Megamart Montego Bay vs Hi-Lo Negril

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been to either of these supermarkets? We want to get OOT bag favors (blue mountain coffee, rum, snacks) as well as liquor for our welcome party and I was hoping someone could tell me which location had the best prices and selection.

I've been to the Hi-Lo as they seem to have the best exchange rates in Negril. It's more like a neighborhood grocery store, so I don't think you'll find too much to use as favors. We usually stock up on liquor when we go there since the prices are pretty good. I've heard of Megamart, and they probably have more of what you're looking for in terms of favors. A good place to pose this question would be on Negril.com in the Negril section as there's quite a few boardies that are very familiar with the stores.

Thanks QueenDiva. I'll check out Negril.com. Did you happen to notice if Hi-Lo has mini bottles of Appleton's Rum? I'm hoping to pick up those and some local snacks to put in our OOT bags.

I don't think they had any of the mini bottles of rum, but I do remember someone listing a location by the airport that had them for a good price. I'll try to find it for you. Also, there's a small grocery store a couple of doors down from Alice's Restaurant (which is across the street from Tensing Pen) and they had some local snacks in there wink.gif

Okay, here's the link to one of the threads where someone contacted Appleton Estates directly http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-favors-44620/

 

And from a post from michelle6114:

 

"Don't know if this helps any, but maybe for the AHR favors?

In the Montego Bay airport by the American Airlines gates, there are 2 liquor stores with insanely cheap prices. We grabbed half a dozen bottles of various jamaican alcohol to give as christmas gifts. I got a bottle of appleton rum there for $3.00. The more deluxe version was 50 cents more. It was a good sized smaller bottle, defitely bigger than shot sized. They even packed them in carboard boxes for the plane. Nobody at customs checked anything on the way home. My husband was pissed that he paid triple the prices at the resort gift shops."

    • 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.
