Congratulations!! That's exciting!
So about your questions...the food I would say was sub par. But that being said, I could always find something I liked. Let's just say I didn't end up losing weight on the trip! The french fries and nachos were definitely clutch lol!
The entertainment was probably one of my favorite things about the ROR. We unfortunately missed the beach bonfire -Saturday and Michael Jackson show-Friday (arrived on a Sunday and left on Friday). The staff is wonderful and we met a lot of friends with the other guests and couples getting married there/celebrating honeymoon there. There was never a dull moment! We actually played Bingo a couple times which was highly entertaining, and I took a chance on the slots and won $50 in two pulls! Definite plus! This of course went to tipping for the rest of our stay.
We paid about $2500 each for 5 nights but that included non-stop flight from Houston as well (~$700 each for this).
We did only one excursion during our stay which was the catamaran tour, snorkeling and Dunn's River Falls for just $40 each. Fantastic time-money well spent! We are planning on doing this again for a group activity for our guests and paying for everyone that chooses to go.
The beaches are absolutely beautiful and the water is calm. You won't have to fight the tide or waves here. Great snorkeling right off the beach! My fiance and I did this several times during our trip.
Yes there are vendors on the beach, but a polite "no, thanks" or "respect" work just fine. They actually enjoy just talking to you about their life and where you are from. Pretty interesting actually.
One tip if any I can give you is to give all your guests the big igloo mugs. We used these the entire trip! I honestly would fill it up at the beginning of the day and not have to go back for ice or anything until several hours later. GREAT BUY! We plan on getting some monogrammed and put in our OOT bags for our guests.
Lots of info-so please let me know if you have any additional questions.
