Hilton Rose Hall 2013 - Recent weddings/planning

Recommended Posts

Has anyone recently had or planning a wedding at the Hilton Rose Hall? It seems though that there aren't many brides talking about this hotel  - recently at least. Any recent experiences to share? If not, and you were considering it, what was the deciding factor and final decision? 

 

Looks like the majority was the Iberostar, any insight to share?

 

Thanks!

Cherri,

 

I'm booked for November 8th, I think I'm hosting everything offsite though. So the group rates that I got from my travel agent ended up being about 50% off the listed rate on the site. WELL, I just checked the site today as our booking window for deposits ends at the end of the month, and the listed rate on the hotel is $250/room a night. It was originally $420. The hotel rate is cheaper, thankfully not by much. Not very happy right now as many guest may decide to book directly with the hotel vs our travel agent and hopefully we don't get penalized if the majority of the guests decide to book directly with the hotel. 

 

Have you set a date yet?

Sheryllj520, Sounds like you have even doing some research like me. I'm driving myself crazy trying to book a resort. I love the pics I have saw from the hilton but I am getting frustrated not being able to connect with the wc I have called so many times and just get a voicemail it's not putting a good first impression. I am hoping to book this week I have two other resorts I'm looking at the iberostar rose hall beach an riu Montego Bay. But I would love to see if the hilton has our date which is 11/12/13? I just want to talk to someone ugh frustrating. I have even done the online request a long time ago and haven't heard anything. How did you reserve your date? I am getting a voicemail of Charlene I believe but she never answers the phone. Sorry I'm venting but I just want to book the date. I'm sure your guests can book either way but are u getting a group discount from the ta? I am having my guests book through the ta cause its much easier.

I didn't try to contact Charlene directly before I started planning, however ultimately we realized an offsite ceremony and reception was a better option for us. I'm in the process of putting together the details and I've been working with Sadeki of www.chic-eventsja.com  So far the experience has been much easier than trying to find info myself and offsite options look awesome! Do you have any info on the Hilton wedding packages yet or have a date set? Feel free to PM me with questions, I have some Hilton package details if you need them!

I too am looking at this resort, but my date isn't until 2015.  Please keep updating on your progress, or lack thereof - I will be checking frequently.  We all want our days to go smoothly, good luck ladies.  I just emailed the resort with questions, I will post when/if I hear back!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
