    Off topic - Lizz, where are you going for your honeymoon? I assumed it was the Riu...

    Heidi - I think all options are nice. If I had allt hemoney in the world, I would always chose the jacuzzi suite. But for the money that we have, I won't spend enough time in the room to make that upgrade worth the price...

      I go back and forth on the whole thing. I'm thinking either the jr suite or full suite. Whenever we travel, we get the rock bottom room option, for the reasons many of you listed on here. BUT, it'd be something that would make our wedding/honeymoon stick out that much more, just because we have NEVER, ever stayed in a room like that before (or probably ever again!)

        Hmm.. if you have the extra money then totally upgrade to the full jacuzzi suite. It's your honeymoon!

        However, if you don't really have the money then stay with what you have an use that money for something else :)

          Hmmm...How about keeping your Jr Suite leading up to the wedding but then upgrading on your wedding day? Then you'd have the better room for the honeymoon at a lower cost than the ones that you posted. Is that an option?

              Or a nice crisp $20 bill and a big smile may get you an upgrade. You never know!

                I hope the prices are better! Also considering what you said above about always getting regular rooms on your vacations, you should definitely treat yourself to something!!!

                  We decided to stay in Ocho Rios, but move to the Sandals Grande Ocho Rios. I'm getting more excited for the honeymoon than the wedding now! We're only going for 3 nights (because we can't afford any more time off!), but we upgraded to a very cool villa and it will be some time to relax just the 2 of us after the craziness of the wedding.

                    personally, my honeymoon is basically the only time I will allow myself to splurge like this. I'm just a cheapo... so I say DO IT!
