We had such a blast in Jamaica, maybe a little too much fun, The vibe, the people, and the MUSIC is so awsome. Congratulations on your engagement!

I also recommend taking the private transfers (ask your TA what the cost is as they can vary depending on who they are using for a supplier).
The highway is finished going into Ocho Rios but if you are at a resort farther down ( in May they were still working near Couples Sans Souci) you may encounter some delays.
At this time a straight ride-no pit stops- into Sandals Grande is an hour 45 minutes.

P.S. I was there in June and the first 10 minutes of the road wasn't fixed yet. It was a tad bumpy, but some of those tripadvisor people are nutty! They complain that the ride is too long but you're in JA, the scenery is beautiful. Plus you stop for Red Stripe halfway through, it's great! We were still hungover from Mexico so if you're not it must be even better

The 1st time I went to Jamaica, my room wasnt ready and the hotel was just like line your suitcase along the wall, go have fun, and come back in an hour and 1/2. I was like what! I really didnt want to leave my stuff out in the open. Good thing I brought along a suitcase lock! I know there were a few mix ups with people picking up other people's luggage!
However, when I went last year, they actually had a secure room where you could lock your luggage in and you are issued a ticket to come back and retrieve your stuff. Much safer in my opinion. I guess it varies by resorts.
With all that being said,lol, if you dont have a unique looking suitcase, a good idea in general would be to mark your suitcase so it is easily identifiable. Most luggage is black or blue. We usually get some red tape and wrap it on multiple parts of the suitcase.
