RIU - Negril or Och Rios???

My daughter is planning on being married in Jamaica in June 2013 and is trying to decide between these two resorts. Any hints, Pro's and cons from any of you experienced people out there?

Been to both multiple times. In my opinion and just my opinion the beach at RIU Ocho Rios is far better but the picturesque environments and landscapes of Negril ( with the cliffs) are better. Are you specifically looking for an AI as i know my dream wedding spot for my daughters in Jamaica but it's not at an AI.

I agree with JML. Ocho Rios for the beach, but we LOVE RIU - Negril. There is a pretty gazebo on the beach, and in the shade, but they have gorgeous grounds for a wedding also. If you'd like to see some pictures of the grounds that may not be on their website, let me know via email and I will send you some. My email is tforswall@sbcglobal.net. Have fun!

We got married at Riu Palace Tropical Bay, Negril in January 2009. I absolutely could not fault it in anyway. From start to finish the staff ands reps at the hotel were fabulous. We even went back for our first anniversary and it was just as good! The staff remembered us too.

We got married in the gazebo which was better than the beach for us.

There are 2 Riu Negrils side by side. We went to one a year ago and was wonderful!!
