Which would you choose Breezes Runaway Bay, Gran Bahia Principe, or Riu ochos rios

Recommended Posts

another gran bahia bride to be here! we're getting married in november 2010 and leaving from toronto, our group rate was $1400. ive seen some pics from another bride on this forum of the gazebo and it looks absolutely beautiful! price wise it was cheaper than the riu, but also kid friendly which was one of our requirements.

good luck!

Im getting married this December at Breezes Runaway Bay. We thought it was the best option for us/ our group. We wanted a very authentic Jamaican hotel. My soon to be mother-in-law stayed there a couple years ago and had the best time of her life! We are really looking forward to it! So far the coordinators have been easy to work with, and reserving the day/time was a breeze for us! Haha, no pun intended... It's also very afordable, and I have heard and saw pics on tripadvisor that they have a great coral reef right off the beach there to snorkel at. I can't wait to go! Good luck!

My FI and I visited Jamaica this past September for vacation/site visits.  We stayed at the Riu Ocho Rios and had a great time.  They have beautiful wedding ceremony locations however they weren't for us.  The beach gazebo was too causal and exposed to everyone on the beach and the gazebo at the lagoon wasn't tropical enough since the gazebo faces the resort.  So while saying your vows guests can watch from their balcony.  We were also supposed to visit the Gran Bahia but the wedding planner left early so we were unable to see the resort:(  But after reviewing pictures and the different options for the reception we decided to go with the Gran Bahia!!!  It has the ceremony location that faces the beach that we wanted and the options that they offer are really affordable.  We are expecting at least 100 people to attend so we want to get has much as we can for our budget. Iâ€m still a numbie so I canâ€t post any pictures but if you send me a personal message with your email address I can send you the link to my pictures of the resort.

    • 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.
