Getting Married at ROR in January 2011

Recommended Posts

Congratulations!  I've actually heard very good things about the RIU in Ocho, most recently from a friend that was there in June.  She said they saw a wedding and it looked gorgeous.  I have also been to Ocho, three years ago, and the biggest thing I remember that might be helpful is that the ride to the resorts was pretty long.  It might be worth considering a private transfer so that you don't have a ton of people and have to stop at every hotel along the way.


Happy planning!

Congratulations Angela! Jamaica is an incredible country for your destination wedding. We went to Jamaica for our honeymoon and stayed at the Rock House and it was incredible. There is a very special vibe in that country that words cannot describe! I wish you all the happiness in the world.

RIU hotels have some of the most reasonable rates and services on the Island of Jamaica.



Thank goodness for that! I was scared you were going to tell us all horror stories about the resort or something. It is so nearve racking when friends and family are paying out so much money to join us on our wedding day. You really want to be sure that they are going to have a great time.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
