You would probably have to ask your travel agent about that. You never know what may happen by the time you go. Your honeymoon is about three months away, and it's possible the nightlife may pick up. Maybe talk to someone who's been during that time of year?

Cheers,
Cherie

Hi Cherie! Did you still enjoy your honeymoon despite the lack of nightlife? What did you think of Sandals overall? We have our honeymoon booked at Sandals Royal Caribbean, and the more I read reviews, I almost wish we were staying at the Riu Ocho Rios for our entire two weeks... but I still think a change in scenery will be good....

I did enjoy our honeymoon...really, how can you not?! We were in Jamaica!! I was a little stressed all week because I decided to get my scuba diver certification. It was too good a deal to pass up on, and I would rather do it in warm water than in Alberta!! Therefore I was reading my diver manual most of the week trying to get ready for the final exam!! LOL..it was pretty funny to be doing that on my honeymoon :)
I have to admit that I did miss the RIU though. Maybe the Royal Caribbean will be different than the Whitehouse.

Well, there was a mixup with our booking and we ended up being bumped to the Sandals Whitehouse! It was very nice, we had a very relaxing time after such a whirlwind week at the Riu Ocho Rios. They are very different resorts, and I have to say the Riu Ocho Rios was more fun!

But Sandals Whitehouse is nice in that you get totally pampered, the service is just excellent.

We never did check out the disco but we enjoyed the outdoor entertainment on several nights, they had one awesome outdoor cabaret performance by a singer from NYC - Cassanda Kubinski - and she was in her 20's so we ended up drinking with her and her boyfriend and some other couples our age! It was fun! Another night we hung out at the martini bar, and another night we watched Jamaican Elvis perform! There is lots to do, but it is a different vibe... I think you WILL enjoy yourself, and the service is top-notch, but if you really want a lot of disco-type nightlife, this isn't the place....

We're wedding date twins! We're getting married at the RIU Ocho Rios and staying there for a total of 10 days. Then we're going to the Sandals Grande Ocho Rios for 4 days. I have heard that the Sandals Whitehouse is amazing, but somewhat secluded. We chose SGOR b/c it is closer to the town and I'm hoping there is more to do and more people.

    • 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?
