  • Wedding: May 2018 - Coyaba Resort, Montego Bay

The RIU is a decent, huge hotel…but you’re right, you have to make reservations or wait in line for a not-so-great buffet meal.  How long are you staying?  Does the $3,500 include airfare, etc?

Just curious…obviously, I LOVE the place we stayed & got married in Montego Bay – the Coyaba.  It’s a short taxi ride from the airport, only 50 rooms (so no madness) & is entirely RELAXING.  They have live music on the weekends, etc. for some entertainment, but mostly it is the perfect place for RE-LAXING! 

Sigh…I want to go back!   http://www.coyabaresortjamaica.com

I was looking at Couples Tower Isle too. Out of all the adult-only places it has been my favorite but I’m not sure Jamacia will work out for an August honeymoon (Hurricanes and all). I’ve heard mixed reviews of the Riu – I don’t really think it’s my ideal scene for a honeymoon.

We’re booked for our honeymoon at Couples Tower Isle! It seems pretty great and many of the reviews I’ve read online seem positive. I know a few bees have also stayed there and said they’ve had great experiences. My BIL and SIL went to Couples Swept Away for their honeymoon and loved it, said it was absolutely amazing and wonderful. I’m thinking the since it’s the same company it’ll be fantastic! Let us know what you decide!

We stayed at Sunset at the Palms which is a small exclusive resort and all inclusive. Its not on the beach but they have a private beach (with lunch and bar) on the beach for guests. Its in Negril. We paid less than $2K for four days with air fare from Miami I think. We really enjoyed it & especially the private bungalows that are your room.

No problem – let me know. We have been on cruises and stuff and other all niclusive resorts – and we felt the quality of food at this resort was really nice. It’s a quiet place & the entire staff will know your name by the end of your trip & ask you when you are coming back. We plan to go back next time we decide to go to Jamaica. I thought it was really relaxing & romantic. We had a great time. Unless you want to crazy party or have so so quality food for maybe a cheaper price – I think they have a nice deal.

They also have like daily shuttle schedules ( cost money I think, like $15) to local attractions and what not. We were so relaxed at the hotel, we never left. So I cant really recommend any of those. I also got transport from the airport – which I can tell you what company, etc.

Oh, yeah and being that this is weddingbee – I have to mention most of the hotel was filled with a wedding party of about 30 people and we seriously hardly saw them – although its a small resort, its still nice and exclusive like that. We went over to the beach to see the ceremony but got there too late 🙁 So cute.

I feel you on that. We went on a cruise, Royal Caribbean, and FH was like I would have paid more for a more lux cruise ( it was his first) he’s pretty picky and really liked the place – the food was good, better than other all inclusives, however, I wouldnt say it’s the Ritz or anything like that but for all inclusive best I have had. Look on tripadvisor too – they have great candid info and stuff.

Also, if you are interested in Mexico – we went to Playa Del Carmen – the couple we were with got engaged on that cruise. We stayed in a two story condo hotel with private roof top pool, super romantic since not too many people there. I can send you that too if you are interested. That was like 2K for the room with two bedrooms for almost a week. Pueblito Escondido in PLaya Del Carmen.

We’re staying at The Caves and The Geejam in Jamaica.  We’re going for 2 weeks, so wanted to split it up.  We’ve heard RAVE reviews about The Caves (Check out TripAdvisor) and it’s all inclusive, but the whole resort is only 24 guests at full capacity.  The food is home-made sit down dinner every night and breakfast is the same and everyone says how fantastic the food is too.  It also includes drinks and they’ll even let you jump behind the bar and make your own if you want.  It’s a little on the pricier side, but could be in your budget depending on how long you want to go.  We got flights for $200 a piece and the room is $495 a night all inclusive.  Good luck!
