    Hello All!

    I've been enjoying all the reads on this forum. It answered alot of questions we have. I do have one questions of my own....
    For those of you who have stayed or going to be staying at Riu Ochos Rios, how much was it to stay for a week...roughly...and which month?
    We went to the travel agent today and got some prices for April 2008 and they quoted us about $2000 (taxes in). Now this is not considering any group discounts or advance booking. We're planning our wedding in April 2009, and since the prices are not out for 2009 yet...it's been hard for us to get an idea of how much it's going to cost our guests.

    Thanks!!

    J&R

        We'll be there April 1-April 8. For two people in a Junior Suite, airfare, all transfers & taxes we're paying just over $3000. For two people staying in a 'normal' room with all of the above for 7 days, it's about $2400. My mom is staying in a single for 6 days and is paying about $1600. Hope this helps!!

        (they all include airfare of about $500ish per person)

          Hey Julia,

          Since you're in Ottawa, I assume you're flying Sunquest? Since it's the only Canadian tour operator that goes to the Riu's?

          For my February 2008 wedding, flying out of Calgary, we are paying $1970 + 262.90 taxes. So your quote is in line with that, but flying out of Ontario... I think you should get a slightly better rate!

                    Wow, I always guessed that it would be cheaper for you Americans and Canadians to the Carribean, but looking at this is seems not!

                    We have paid £1067 each (around $2000) and that includes everything for 2 weeks (transf, airport taxes etc)

                    How long is the flight for you? its almost 10 hours from here, I pity my MOH, she has a 2 and half year old and a 9 month old!

                      Ours is about $4300 (txs and all) Junior suite from Toronto...can't wait for the prices to drop a bit as then the wedding time slots are filled.

                      I think it's about a 4 hr. flight
