Help! Looking For Advice..jamaica, Private Beach, Small Resort

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! Total newbie here...

Looking for a smaller resort (<400 rooms) in Jamaica, we will have a good sized group, most likely 30-40 people. I really value a private beach location. I don't want to be too far from the airport. We are looking for March 2015. WHERE DO I START?!

Congrats and welcome to the site! You'll find a ton of information here so definitely read, read, read!!

 

A travel agent is always a good place to start. You're on the one year mark, so I'm not sure if you'll get decent pricing yet or not. But just for fun, try itravel2000.com and put in Jamaica just for resorts. Get the details on the sizes and what they have for amenities and narrow down the list. Then once you start checking with travel agents, you'll have a short list of resorts to discuss.

 

We got married at Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica, but that might be a bit bigger than what you're looking for. The price is reasonable, and it's a great resort. Might be worth checking out.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

Hey! Congrats! You're smart for starting early! :) I'm 6 months away! <3

 

I would recommend Sunwing! And if you're still looking I'm getting married at the Royalton White Sands in Montego Bay, Jamaica on Tuesday, November 18th, 2014! Check it out if you haven't already ;)

 

The hotel has 350 rooms!

 

Happy planning!

Rose Hall is a really nice area which is close to the ariport.  You may want to look around there to start.  Also a travel agent is important, they can help with your family and friends booking and getting the best rate or even suggest some good hotels.  There are also destination wedding planners which could be a huge help.  Just depends on if you have the budget for it.

Canada2015Bride ... Check out Coyaba Beach Resort in Montego Bay, smaller more intimate with great beach, pool, food & wedding packages. My BIL got married there 05/2010 and it was very nice.

Canadabride2015 if you're looking for something private, check out Hummingbird hall, its a villa in Montego bay. The only thing is they don't have accommodation, so you'd have to stay in a resort close by.

 

We are having our wedding in Negril, its about an hour from the airport. There is loads if lovely small resorts there. Rhodes hall plantation in Negril has a private beach, check out their website. http://www.rhodesresort.com/

 

Good luck with the planning!! :-)

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
