Excited about upcoming site visits in Jamaica!

Recommended Posts

So we're back from our trip. We returned last night. I wish the weather was more accommodating, as it had rained the first day we got there. On the first day we visited two resorts, Rose Hall (Hilton) & Iberostar Beach. We really liked both. We couldn't really cover much of the outside grounds at the Hilton because at the time of the visit it was pouring. However, the wedding coordinator gave us the round down and gave us a wedding outline. Pretty much if we can afford the Rose Hall we'd def book. They have great amenities including a water park, but their AI plans I hear are pricey and any of the add-ons. Right now we're in the process of seeing how much everything would be if we were to choose.

 

But along side that Iberostar Beach was really nice as well and big. We learned that the Iberostar Resorts are the second biggest resorts in JA (first one being Grand Palladium). Anyhow I'm swayed towards Iberostar simply put because they offer the one wedding per day and their grounds too were nice for pics and scenery. We also visited the Riu hotels out in Negril and we were liked the Riu Tropical Palace's layout more so than Riu Negril. Only advantage with Riu Negril is it has a disco (club) whereas RTP does not. However, the perks of staying at RTP is you can use the disco at Riu Negril. We also saw Moon Dance Cliffs but have decided it won't work for us. There's no beach, just cliffs and we'd want our guests to have access to the beach whenever they wanted without having to catch a cab back and forth.

 

So now we're just going to narrow down our top 2, draw up another budget and see which one will work best for us and our guests. Destination weddings are all about saving money & not going broke, so whatever works best for us and will offer a fab time is what we'll do.

 

Sorry there are no pics to post, but the weather was horrible and we figured pics of all the resorts could be easily found on-line.

 

Hope this mini review helps someone that was/is in the same boat as me.

Thank you for the review. Hilton Rose Hall is a beautiful resort! With so many options for the wedding location. That resort was on my list too until I saw the costs. shots.gif   At this point I am leaning towards Iberostar Rose Hall Suites. But it is so difficult to choose! 

 

Well good luck on making your final venue decision!

Delgadot girl me too. If the Hilton was more cost effective the decision would be simple. But it looks like we're more than likely going to go with the Suites as well. Keep me posted! When are you planning on getting married? And congrats!

Our wedding is not until July 2012 but I am a huge planner so I am getting a head start:) This forum has given me so many great ideas I would have never even thought of, it has been awesome soaking it all in. I really like Iberostar Rose Hall Suites but I had found another venue called Hummingbird Hall in Montego Bay that kind of has my attention too, so hopefully our site visit will confirm which one we will go with:)
