    Hi everyone:


    My name is Tiffany and my fiance are planning a destination wedding in Jamaica next Sept 2011. We're planning a trip down to JA next month to visit a few resorts, however so far we only have one appt set up and that's with Rose Hall Resort & Spa. We're looking to have an intimiate wedding, all inclusive etc. My fiance was born and raised in Jamaica, so we really want our guests to have an awesome time (esp for those flying to JA for the first time.)


    Can anyone offer any recommendations of hotels that we should get in contact with? I've emailed Iberostar and I'm still waiting for a reply. Any feedback is appreciated! Thank you.

      We are getting married at the Grand Palladium Jamaica resort on May 6, 2011.  We have not yet seen the resort, and due to our tight budget we couldn't afford to visit Jamaica before the wedding.  I searched online for a long time reading reviews and looking at pictures of the various resorts in Jamaica.  The hardest part in making the decision was trying to not believe everything that I read.  I tried to remember that people are more likely to post bad review comments than good ones, and I tried to just pick the resort that I thought would best suit our guests and the wedding that we were envisioning.  The Grand Palladium looks beautiful, so I hope that everything works out.  Hope this helps!


      Good luck planning!

        I am staying at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay. (My wedding might be off site) but this resort is AI and is beautiful. The best part is they only do one wedding per day. Check them out there is a lot of info on this forum about it too! Good Luck!

          I am getting married next month at Secrets Wild Orchid/St James in Montego Bay.  Also, do to our budget, we were not able to visit this resort or Jamaica prior to our trip in November.  If you remind me, I will give you a full report when we return in the middle of November.  The wedding coordinators are Monica & Lisa Marie and are very nice and helpful.  I would contact them to set up a meeting if you're looking for an ADULTS ONLY All inclusive.  They just opening in March 2010 so there is not too much info yet, but they do have a very active facebook fan page.  Looking forward to my trip next month.  Best of luck on your search!

                Thanks everyone for your replies. We are considering Iberostar, along with the Riu or even Rose Hall. I just can't wait to go see them in person this way our decision can be made.

                  Hi there- just wanted to say that we had a great experience with Rose Hall!  Fabulous resort for families, excellent food and drinks, very nice rooms--- all of our guests found it to be a great value.  The wedding/reception were a bit expensive (we got married at the aqueduct ruins and opted for a private reception in the courtyard of Cinnamon Hill golf course), but we were very pleased with everything!  Best of luck with your search!
