    My fiance and I are trying to plan our destination wedding in Jamaica.  We met with a travel agent last week, and we've narrowed our options down to the following resorts:

     

    Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa

    Iberostar Rose Hall Suites

    Riu Ocho Rios

     

    We need a resort that is kid-friendly, and will be cost-effective for our family and friends.  Does anyone have any recommendations or preferences for any of these hotels over the others? 

     

    Thanks!

      sarahandmark, I picked Iberostar Rose Hall Suites because they are family friendly, resonably priced for an all-inclusive AND (most important) they offier ONLY ONE WEDDING PER DAY!  That was my selling point.  Additionally, the online ratings are great and previous brides on here have had good experiences.  Honestly, I didn't do extensive research on the others so I can't really speak to them and what they offer!

        Thanks for the input!  I do like the idea of my wedding being the only one they have that day.  How did you go about requesting your wedding date?  I feel like I keep emailing resorts to find out availabilities of wedding dates, and I'm not getting any responses.

          OMG, the wait is the worst part.  Apparently this is "busy season."  I totally understand that but the wait was rough!  I requested (and followed-up) 2-3 times and FINALLY  I received confrimation.  weddings.suites@iberostar.com is the email address I have for the coordinator.  Her name is Nicole.

              Hi Sarah,

               

              What day did you confirm?  I'm getting married at IRHS on May 16, 2011.  Congrats and happy planning.

                We actually changed our minds from the Iberostar to the Grand Palladium.  I'm trying to confirm a wedding date of May 6, 2011, but it's so hard to get someone to respond to me!  Congratulations to you too, good luck with all of your planning!

                  I picked IRHS, we are getting married on November 11, 2011. We were thinking about the Grand Palladium. but chose IRHS based on reviews and the fact that they have one wedding per day. I would suggest if you have a travel agent asking if they can contact Grand Palladium for you. My travel agent, who is awesome volunteered to contact Nicole at IRHS whenever I have questions. Nicole seems to respond to her much quicker than me. I know all travel agents are different and some won't do it, but it may help. Sarah, I'm in Baltimore also what part are you located in.

                    I finally bypassed the whole email thing and just decided to call.  The wedding coordinator at the Grand Palladium sent me all of the package information within a day or two.  We've finally selected a date (May 6, 2011) so now I just have to move forward with all of the rest of the planning!  Mrsgreene2011, my fiance and I live in Glen Burnie - what part are you in?  Congratulations by the way :-)

                      I'm glad you chose a resort; that's one of the hardest decisions. Congratulations on choosing a date and happy planning . I live in Essex, been in MD for about 3 1/2 years and I love it. Keep me posted you planning.
