    Hi Pook2b!! Thanks for getting back to me.. I haven't booked yet because I'm waiting for my travel agent to give me quotes on everything. I think I'm going to offer to pay for my friends stay there in order for her to take the pictures. I'm worried because I have seen some of the photos of the photographer at Riu and wasn't so pleased but like you I am looking for something simple. I think there is only going to be about 10 of us total going. Are you doing a private reception or just having all of your guests book a reservation at one of their restaurants in a blocked off space?

      Hi allaboutodd.

      After reading a fantastic review from a recent bride who got married in November, I have no doubt that I have pick the perfect place for our wedding. We have also sent messages back a forth and she advises that we dont pay extra to have a reception as we can all sit together anyway and go from bar to bar, restuarant to restuarant when we please ad the staff were really accomodation. She also says that the DVD ($300) is a must and they do a brilliant job. We are going to have 24 pictures of 4x6, this works out to be $110. We have ordered about $800 of optional extras (£400 in our money) this includes button holes for the guys and flowers for the girls. There are 8 in our group (3 children) and all staying at SJG. I cant wait now, really getting excited. Please contact me more if i can help.

      p.s. we booked through Virgin and they have also been great, sorted all documents etc.

      Let me know what you decide.

        If you want to read the review, go to Sunset Jamaica Grande trip advisor. There has been some mixed reviews (negatives seem to be from people who have had to transfer there because Mo Bay is being re-vamped0.
        There are a lot of wedding reviews and a few pictures too.
        Hope this helps.

          Awesome!! Thanks... I'm really excited too and I think we're going to finalize our booking in January. We decided to go with Sunset because Riu is already booked up for the month of August. We want to be really simple as well but photography is important for me since not as many people are able to come. Plus, we plan on having a casual reception when we get back so we're definitely getting the video. Do you know if they are blocking off tables for you for the reception? All of our guests are staying at SGJ as well so a reception at one of their restaurant will suffice. I will look for that review... I was also very skeptical due to reviews that I saw on there.

            The bride that I spoke to had 15 in her party and didn't request to have somewhere blocked off, they just did it for them. I think that with the reviews on the forums, you have to read between the lines. All forums are the same, some good and some bad. Generally as a whole, SJG seems to be an all round great for wedding party's and for kids.

                Hi denise,

                Our wedding package is organized through Virgin and we are adding optional extra's to it. Esther at Sunset Jamaica Grande has answered some of my queries and been very helpful but Virgin have been corresponding with me regarding times and dates etc, I have also had to request the optional extras from Virgin who then pass the request on to SJG. They seem to deal with loads of weddings so i am sure everything will be fine.
                We arrive at SJG around 3.30pm on 8th April 2008, we may just have to take a sneaky peek at your wedding :-)

                  I have been working with Liberty Travel and I am beginning to get everything together and prepared for booking. The date will be August 8, 2008. Yayyyy because August is a big month for me as it is. I am just weary about booking without having a list of the prices for the extras such as: photography, DVD, flower arrangements, reception arrangements.. I just want to know about that before booking. Can anyone help or do I really have to wait to talk to Esther about that? Also, do you pay for the wedding amenities upon arrival or beforehand?
