    We decided on Sandals Royal Carribbean in Montego Bay (wanted to cut down on travel time), but my officiant practically BEGGED me to go to CSA in Negril. Her and her husband have been there a couple of times and absolutely rave about it.

    That said, my biggest piece of advice for anyone going to an all-inclusive is to seek out the help of a travel agent. They don’t cost a thing, take care of all the leg work for you, and are SO helpful in deciding between the different resorts. I am usually a very DIY type person, book travel myself all the time, but am SO glad I used a travel agent to book our trip. She has been phenomenal, caught several mistakes I wouldn’t have caught, advised us based on our preferences, and ended up SAVING us money. They are paid by the resorts, not by you – and you don’t pay any higher fee. Can’t recommend an agent enough.

    Whenever i read thread titles like this i always think there has been some hurricane accident and a couple has been taken out to sea.

    @BoxerLady:  I’m not sure on those type of sites – are those last minute deal type things?

    I do know they matched the best price I could find online, and then when the price went down, they were able to get it adjusted down for us (just as long as you hadn’t yet paid the final balance, so we waited until the last minute to pay the balance).

    There is no obligation to use one even if you talk to them, so I’d just give one a call and ask that kind of question. Ask them the best price they could get you on the resort & dates you want, and then you can compare.

    FWIW, I used Patty at Totem Travel (not affiliated at all). She’s AWESOME and was so helpful. But I think she specializes in Sandals – although she had been to bunches of different ones and could tell me how they all stack up. I am sure there are ones that specialize in Couples too.
