My FI and I want to go the all-inclusive route for our honeymoon. We have been all-inclusive once before (Lifestyles in the DR, with my family when we were in college) and while we loved the resort and not having to worry about paying for anything, the food was really disappointing.
So, we are looking for an all-inclusive that’s known for its food! Location doesn’t really matter–we haven’t been anywhere besides the DR so we are up for exploring!

Hi, I really enjoyed the food at The Royal Cancun and Excellence Playa Mujeres. The food at the Valentin Riviera Maya was also very good. I stayed at the RIU in DR and the food was terrible! I pretty much ate spaghetti with tomato sauce everyday!

We went to Couples Sans Souci and their food was good – not outstanding, not great- but good. Certain things were better than others. However, they didnt have too many restaurant options so after 7 days things kind of got old. I have heard that Club Med or Excellence has very good food but thats only from 2 people so I dont know how good that is! Have you thought about Sandals?

I agree..I stayed at the Excellence Playa Mujeres years ago..and the food was great! So much better than food in the Dominican (will never go back there)..

We went to Secrets in Montego Bay and the food was amazing!

Any of the Couples resorts are reported to have amazing food. I’ll be at CSS in a month and can report back then.

I will say the food in the DR was also a horrible experience for me. However, I will also add that the DR is more of a vacation destination for European tourists therefore, the food served was geared toward European tastes; not American. Ergo…I found it mostly disgusting…ecxept for the american continental breakfast every morning…I KILLED some mashed potatoes then! If you want good food, search for more of an American tourist destination where the food prepared and served is designed specifically for American tastes. I’ve stayed in the Riviera Maya at the RIU and the food there was not “the most amazing food I’ve ever had” but it was good and I was happy and full everyday. FI and I have chosen Jamaica at Couple’s Swept Away for us so I’m hoping the food will be bearable, I know I will not be getting my favorite restaurant, deli and diner tastes from home.
EDIT: because my typing skills are less than stellar this morning.

Mexico in general has better food at the resorts than DR and cuba!

We just returned from DREAMS PUERTO VALLARTA and the food was incredible. HIGHLY recommended. And booking through CheapCaribbean.com was a great deal!

Ugh, went to Breezes Bahamas and the food was TERRIBLE. Went to Secrets Silversands in the Mayan Riviera and the food was amazingly good. Lots of restaurant choices and I loved it. I will go back there. The Bahamas, not so much!

I would highly recommend El Dorado Royale or Seaside Suites. Their gourmet all-inclusive is probably one of the best reasons to stay there.
It’s all ala carte dining-no buffets.
I am a vegetarian, and allergic to nuts, but never had any issues at all finding really great things to eat there.

We haven’t been yet but are staying at Standals Regency La Toc in St Lucia. Our travel agent has been there and said the food is very good.

My sister and bil swears each year by “Round Hill” in Jamaica. Says get the IC package and they love it. Food freakin’ amazing.
Also, my DH said the food is also equally amazing at “Jalousie Plantation” in St. Lucia. Each villa has its own plunge pool.
Check these out! I know we want to go to Jalousie in the future.

I have gone to several different Club Med resorts and they consistently have awesome food, literally rooms full of different choices. They are all over the world and each one has all the standards plus they incorporate the local fares. In addition they have great sporting opportunites and plenty of entertainment.
If you want something more personal try this place in Costa Rica;
You have your own chefs who “design” each meal personally for you. They even change the china pattern (all gorgeous) with each meal. They cook extra of everything so the fridge is always overflowing for midnight raids … lol. The food is delicious and the the desserts decadent!
