Negril Brides Help!! Pre-wedding dinner location needed!

Recommended Posts

I am looking to do a pre-wedding dinner for my guests and need a nice private location that can accommodate up to 60 people. I would love to have a bonfire along with the dinner. My wedding is at The Rockhouse Hotel (not an AI) so any sugguestions (resturants, villas, etc.) is great appreciated! Help!

 

Thanks!

Sorry, I'm not going to be much help. Even though I've been to Negril, but not for a wedding. Anyhow, I think Toni (phillygal(i think)) is seeking a similar location in Negril for a private reception. Maybe you guys can get together and share what you find. Also, maybe TA Jennifer can chime in as she recently visited Negril and would be waaaay more help than what I can offer. lol

I just got back from Negril and while we were there we ate at Kuyaba and I said that I definitely wanted to have my rehearsal dinner there. I don't know how many people they can accomodate. Hopefully a lot since I plan on having at least 40 people. You can look at their website to see pics. It's KUYABA: just a glimpse. The food, the service and the atmosphere were absolutely incredible. Can I ask how you decided on the Rockhouse? Are you getting married there also, or just staying there? I am in the beginning planning stage and think we've decided on the Riu Negril (we have kids coming) to stay but we're trying to locate a private beach for our reception...

ok heres the email from my bride. shes going there next month for her site visit. she said it was ok for me to give you her email so if you want it just email me - leigh@leighmillerphotography.com - good luck! hth.

 

Pirates Cave seems to be a popular one since it is right next to the Rockhouse. Some girls i have talked to says Kayuba is really good but it is expensive. Three Dives- i think you can bring your own coolers of beer to this place. Very laid back atmosphere. Im pretty sure it is 3 dives that does this.

 

Two more.....

Irie on the beach

Normas

 

Oh!! if she wants i can get her some brochures when we are there and mail them to her. Tell her to check this out if she has not yet Rockhouse Hotel (Negril, Jamaica) - Hotel Reviews - TripAdvisor

 

tell her to set up an account of the "negril forum" on the left side of the page

and she can talk to lots of people.

Ladies,

 

I have contacted the events coordinator at Kuyaba, Leonie, and she sent me the menus (if you want to see them let me know). I wanted to find a spot to do a private bonfire and she said I could, but only if I reserved the entire restaurant which is $2500 not including food! So, I am going to ask dear-ol' mom to see if she wants to host the welcome dinner! If not, I am considering either renting a private villa for one night and bring in caterers or do a 'welcome cocktail hour reception' with just drinks and appetizers somewhere.

 

PhillyGal:

 

I have alwayas wanted to vacation at the Rockhouse from reading reviews over the years, so when I got engaged in June of this year, that was the first place I called! They only do 20 weddings a year, and they only had 2 slots left for 2008 which both are were in September! I didn't care if it was during hurricane season, I grabbed Sept. 20! So we blocked the rooms of the entire hotel (they have 35 rooms). I am very excited!

 

Leigh:

 

I think I will check out Pirates Cave and I heard Normas was good. Let me know what your bride comes back with.

 

THANKS LADIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not sure how fancy you were looking to go with the rehearsal - but there's a great jerk chicken place on the cliffs a little ways down from the Rockhouse that you can do a rehearsal at. They also do a bonfire on the edge of the cliff as well - nice sunsets. It's called 3 Dives - run by Lydie - very casual picnic type of vibe.

Norma's on the Beach was really good. We also at an Italian place called Mariposa. The only thing is that you would have to cab it to the beach from the cliffs. We got married in Ocho Rios, but we honeymooned at Tensing Pen near Rockhouse. We did eat at Rockhouse a few times, though and it was great.

Someone already recommended 3 dives. They had THE BEST meal I ate in Jamaica and I stayed at Rockhouse (my fiancee works there!) LOVED it, the only place I returned to. My welcome dinner will be at Rockhouse and the wedding at Tensing Pen, but I would have jumped to have a casual family dinner around picnic tables with a bonfire at 3 Dives.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
