    I am actually getting married at the Paradisus Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and then heading to Jamaica to honeymoon at Sandals Negril.

    I initially had my heart set on Sandals Royal Caribbean, but my travel agent suggested Negril, saying that it was much nicer and the level of service was higher. I've also heard that the resort in Montego Bay has a "party" atmosphere, just fyi.

    We are staying in one of the swim-up river suites, and I can't wait!

Once the guests leave, the real vacation begins and then you can explore some of the other things the resort has to offer as well as Ocho Rios...or Jamaica for that matter. I am a big food person, so I hope I will be content with eating at the same restaurants for 11 nights...

      I guess I'll just order different items on the different menu everytimes, lol.
      FutureMrsButler08 - It seems like there are a lot of restaurants to choose from at the resort so I wouldn't worry. You could always ask the hotel for recommendations on a restaurant outside the resort if you wanted to get out one night...

          Our friends stayed there a few years ago, and LOVED it! We were considering going there, but decided to go to the Caves instead (also Island Outpost). I love the look of their resorts and can't wait!!!

I would LOVE to stay at the Sandals Negril or Sandals Whitehouse but the prices we are being quoted for them will just really break the bank. The Royal Caribbean is affordable, and the reviews for it sound like it is newer and nicer than Sandals Montego Bay. Sooooo... at least we can stay at a decent Sandals and hopefully see Negril as well! However, I am going to look at some of the other resorts you ladies suggested too to see if they could possibly be worked into the budget! Thanks, I will keep you posted!
            Hey jmhein,
            We will be staying at the Sandals Whitehouse for one week after our stay at the ROR for our wedding. My TA seemed to have pretty decent prices. I could get her information to you if you like.

              I'm in the same boat. I am getting married at ROR, and we will be there for 14 days also. We were actually considering flying to the Dominican Republic (Only because we got a free trip for an inclusive hotel there).......but after thinking about if for a little while, I don't want to chance a "free vacation" for my honeymoon. It may turn out to be a dump!!

                Hi Alex,

                Yep, I think that we are going to stay put at Riu for the entire stay. Driving to the airport again and doing more traveling will just eat more of our "Honeymoon Time" up. I went monogram CRAZY yesterday and made about 15 to choose from. I used powerpoint, word, & photoshop. There is a template in the DIY section for how to do it.

                  I really like that monogram. Are you using it on the items you are personalizing? I'm not sure if I'm going to do one.

                    Thx Chicago. I have a couple to choose from and yes, i am using them on my OOT boxes, menu's, etc.

                    I was reading about Couples Ocho Rios for our honeymoon portion and all of these activities are included:

                    All-Inclusive activities and equipment
                    Water sports

                    Windsurfing
                    Sailing
                    Sea kayaking
                    Snorkeling on-site; snorkeling trips by boat leaving 2–3 times daily
                    Scuba diving trips (two-tank dive per day; certified divers only)
                    Scuba diving resort courses (completion allows one tank dive)
                    Glass-bottom boat tour
                    Sunset catamaran cruise
                    Waterskiing
                    Use of one main pool/pool on Tower Isle/four spa tubs/lounge chairs/towel service

                    Does anyone know of any other romantic AI resort that offers activities for free. I don't think Riu Ocho Rios does.

                      I know that SGOR does offer them for free, including golf, hobie cats, snorkeling, and a host of other activities. Check them out here.
