Prices in Riu Ocho Rios

Recommended Posts

We're flying out of Vancouver May 22, 2008 and our guests are paying $2150 each all taxes, transfers, etc. included, For Junior Suites it's about $150 more per person for the week....I think you will get a better deal once you enter into a group booking which we had to have a minimum 10 people to get the special rates.

 

I hope this helps you! Good luck with all your planning!! It's such a great site here!!!!

Yea! I'm getting married on May 19th, and will be there from 14th - 20th, and then at Couples from 20th - 25th.

 

Our prices were:

 

For us - $2200 per person, for 6 nights at the Riu and 5 nights at Couples, including airfare from Columbus, Ohio. These are for the oceanview rooms.

 

Our guests are paying $1060/per person for 4 nights/5 days at the Riu, including airfare from Columbus, Ohio. This was part of a group discount.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi Ladies! I will be at the Riu from 5/8 until the following Friday, whatever that is! We are getting married on the 12th. SO excited! Anyway, our guests are paying 990 for 4nights and round trip, nonstop from Philly! Can't wait! That was an awesome deal, the 2000 for 2 weeks!

It looks like we are paying about the same

I am getting married over christmas so my guests are paying 2600 pp from Calgary AB, direct flight.

I see on travelocity, expedia etc the trip for our dates is not 2100ish, but we all booked long ago to make sure we could go.

 

I found differences with the bonuses from agent to agent.

after 10-20 people booked (depending on the agent) you should get a free person or some give you a dollar amount of credit.

Also Riu/other resorts give extra incentives and discounts depending on the time of year, adn hoe farin advance you book, how far in advance the trip is paid up. IE free room up grades, kids free, $ off etc.

 

We are going at Christmas and not only are we paying a higher fee, we dont get any furhter discounts sad.gif

 

My FH an I are going to Rio Ocho Rios DEC 22 for a week then to Couples swept away staying in the highest room catagory, and paid 10,000 for both of us for the 2 weeks

 

I hope this helps

FYI ladies:

I just noticed on the Riu site concerning the upgrades (I dont know if they just added the latter part or not):

* Complimentary room upgrade subject to availability upon arrival (External Jacuzzi Suites are not included) thatswck.gif

So it may be good that you have already booked the jacuzzi suite!

I don't understand how they can change things after we book!! That makes me nervous about other things they may change to the packages! Seems like they wouldn't be able to do that after you book, only for people who book after they make the changes... but what can be done to make sure you get what it says when you actually book??smile35.gif

Maybe if someone printed off the package from the webpage with the time/date stamp on the page, then I would think they would have to honor it. Other than that, this may be something to ask Chandlyn about if you're counting on getting this upgrade.

Does anyone know if they just added the info about the external jacuzzi or its always been there and I just overlooked it?

You already have rates for Jan 2009? Does this include for the Riu? And what is the length of stay? Thanks

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
