HELP RIU NEGRIL OR RIU OCHO RIOS
Posted 18 October 2007 - 10:15 AM
One Has 856 Rooms And The Other 420?
Are We Just Another Number At The Big One
Has Anyone Been To Both? Which One Is Better?
We Do Have Children Going Ages 1, 2, 8, 12 & 15?
Which Ersort Is More Kids Friendly?
Thank You For You Help

1. It is a little more expensive.
2. They do not guarantee your dinner/reception spot until you get there. Obviously if you have a large party going this would not be good.
3. The drive is shorter from the airport to Negril versus the airport to Ocho Rios - Perk!
My TA told me that ROR accomodates DW's more.
Hope this helps.

Now with your bringing kids. I would recommend Negril mainly because the waves and currents are not nearly as strong as the Ocho Side. Thats of course if getting in the ocean is somethnig you plan on doing.

ROR was larger, newer and a lot more luxurious. Looks like a palace. Got better reviews on Travel Advisor. Wedding locations were gorgeous -nicer than Negril's choice to me. Seems to be cheaper. I also heard a few times that the WC is hard to get in contact with at Negril and they don't keep their word on a lot of things, unlike ROR. Also, they don't offer the Free Wedding Package. I have a 4 year old son and more kids will be going around his age. I think either resort would be fine for kids - they are all kid friendly. I heard Tropical Bay was old and not so nice. Club Hotel Negril is newer, but not as nice as ROR.

And if you request a date and change your mind about it, they will not release the date for a long time unless you email them to cancel the request. I did that (had them cancel the requests) because I realized that I was holding like 3 different dates (which was keeping others from booking them).

Also, when we honeymooned at ROR it did not feel that big. Even though there are 800 rooms it is laid out well and we didn't feel crowded at all. We were there in June, maybe that's a slow season...not sure. But don't let the size intimidate you. Most times late at night we sat on the beach and were the only 2 people within sight. The staff treated us exceptionally well and it seemed they paid that attention to everyone.
