    either of you still reading this thread? I have narrowed down my resorts for fall 09 to RP or the new Moon Cliffs resort in Negril. How was RP? It looks so beautiful. I wanted a place with some charm and intimacy, not a big resort. i think this is it. Let me know. Pictures??

      I really can not say enough about RP. It was the most amazing day ever. RP was like a dream come true. You get such personalized service since it is such a small resort and the decor and scenery is unbelievable. Staff is amazing. You will not worry about a thing on your wedding day or the entire stay.

      If intimacy and charm is what you are looking for this is defiantly the resort. RP is really first class. It might be a little pricer than other resorts in Ocho Rios, but it is well worth it in the end. The on site wedding coordinator is a dream. I could go on and on.

      I'm working on a detailed review with pictures and should have it up soon. I'll send you a PM with the link to the thread.

        Karma, I will TOTALLY be on the lookout for this thread!!

        I am literally drooling over this resort for our HM. Sooooo amazing. With the Fly Free Promotion/33% discount we can actually afford to stay there 1 week after our wedding in Puerto Vallarta, MX. Waiting for TA Jennifer to get back to me on specific rates but OMG this looks like THE ONE!!!!!

        Only thing... I don't think I'll ever want to come home. They might have to drag me away kicking and screaming! LOL

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

          Jamie, all I can say is that you will not be disappointed if you go here for your honeymoon. Here's a few highlights/spoilers that will be posted in my review:

          1. Private car service from airport (stocked with red stripes/beverages for the ride)
          2. Champagne and chilled towels upon check-in
          3. Unlimited room service anytime (NO extra fees)
          4. Mango-mimosa's served on the beach every morning as well as fresh fruit served at your beach chair
          5. You never lift a finger to move beach chairs, get towels, put up umbrellas, get a drink, you have a beach butler that you just wave a flag to and he comes right over.
          6. 4 star quality dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner plus access to any of the sandals or beaches restaurants

          I could go on and on and on. I took tons of pictures of the resort as well so I will add those in the review. My only regret about the trip was that I was pregnant for it and couldn't enjoy the yummy cocktails/wine they offered! LOL, we will probably be going back for sure after Hannah is born.

            Love it! I really can't wait to see your pics :) Which room category did y'all stay in? We want the HM w/spa suite. It looks sooooo lavish!

            I've been stalking Trip Advisor trying to read as many reviews and tips as I can ever since I found this place (I'm a research-aholic lol)

                  We stayed in the Honeymoon grand-luxe suite. Which I highly recommend because of the balcony. It has one of the largest balconies in the whole resort. It was HUGE. We had a large dining table, two full size lounge chairs, and a large bar (fully stocked) with a sink. We spent a lot of time out there just relaxing. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub and a huge open shower (no door) which was amazing! The room number was 355 and if you go with that category I would recommend you request it in advance because it has the best view since it is on the 3rd floor.

                  I almost went with the larger honey moon suite, but decided against it because it would of cost us an additional $1000 for the duration of our stay. I can only imagine how amazing and decadent that suite would have been though!

                    Karma, this is the one we're looking at: Honeymoon Plantation Ocean Front One Bedroom Suite (I think it's the category just above the one y'all stayed in!) ~ the only way we could afford it is with the 33% discount they're currently offering. We wanted luxury and that's what we're going to get! LOL

                    Nearly 600 sq. ft in size this uniquely distinctive suite offers a romantic king-bedded room with panoramic ocean views and a large, open-air balcony; separate comfortable living area with large TV & VCR player, marbled master bathroom and walk-in closet. In addition to the marble bathroom, it’s most distinctive feature is its romantic Roman Spa room. The Roman Spa room it decadently outfitted with a marble bar, cozy Cleopatra chaise lounge, large Jacuzzi tub, additional tumbled-marble shower, and dramatic wall-to-wall French windows which frame the intense blues of the Caribbean Sea…this is one of the most romantic suites in at Royal Plantation. Panoramic ocean views from both the bedroom and the Roman Spa Room.

                      I am getting married at RP on January 16th, 2010. I have enjoyed reading your posts, they are very helpful (especially the reviews by Karama and TA Jennifer!) Any advice or suggestions? After seeing Karma's pics we are heavily considering the bonfire. We have 14 people going right now and expect at least 20. This resort is pricey but it looks amazing! Thanks again!
