As we are in the early phases of planning for our honeymoon, we are really drawn to Sandals (particularly in St. Lucia) because of the convenience of being an adults-only and all-inclusive resort.
Any advice on Sandals? Is it really worth it? If not, can you recommend another all-inclusive resort?

My friend’s SIL, who is a travel agent, always highly recommends Sandals. A little cheesy, but predictable she said and everyone always has a good time.
As someone who did the adults only all inclusive thing (We did The Excellence, food was only so-so, the rest was fab), I can highly recommend it. For a honeymoon, you dont’ want kids running around, screaming, splashing, etc. It was quiet and all the other couples are honeymooners, too! Makes it all around romantic.

I’ve been to the Sandals Grand in St. Lucia and it was AMAZING. I cannot stress enough how great it was. I’ve been to other all inclusives and they didn’t hold a match to Sandals. Highly recommend it.

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon in St. Lucia. Originally we had planned to go to a sandals type resort but after talking with a travel agent we decided to go to Ti Kaye which is another resort on the island (they offer an all inclusive option which we opted out of). All of the rooms are small cottages that over look the ocean. I can’t say enough wonderful things about it! Because it is smaller than a sandals you get a much more personal experience. I would definitely check it out!

I’ve been to 2 different Sandals locations: Turks & Caicos and Jamaica. They were both amazing in their own way. They have the adult pool (swim up bar!!!) with a kiddie pool nearby. At the T&C location there was a separate area for kids where they could play games, get food & had a slide pool (something you’d see at a waterpark).
My parents have been to either 1 or 2 othe St. Lucia locations with friends quite a few times!! They LOVE it there.
Fiance & I are thinking of going to the new St. Lucia location, I think it’s supposed to open this year. I highly recommend Sandals.

I AM a travel agent, and really any Sandals is awesome! I never reccomend anything else, if it’s in your price range GO AND DON’T THINK TWICE! It is ultra luxury and you are treated like a King and Queen! My FH and I are going to the Sandals in St. Lucia.. it’s FABULOUS!

Fiance and I just booked our honeymoon at the Sandals in Antigua and I can’t wait! I’m freaking out about the cost of airfare but hopefully it will all work out. The whole thing is a bit out of our price range but I figure you only go on a honeymoon once! I just wish we could go right after the wedding. We have to wait till December. Oh well, at least we’ll leave the snow for some sun!

we are staying at secrets maroma beach. it’s adults only, all inclusive, but it’s less of a party feel and more of a spa relaxing feel. i can’t wait!!

I was wondering the same thing. We were looking at the Sandals in Antigua and St. Lucia….boht look beautiful…..a little pricey, but I feel like it would be worth it, the only bummer is We have to go in summer (high season…or over Christmas break, as I will be teaching.)

We haven’t honeymooned yet 😉
But we did go to Secret Capri for vacation in July 2007 and I can’t say enough good things about it!!! I’d go back to another Secrets in a heartbeat. I’ve also been to a Sandals and I think Secrets was better.

@Sulli: We went to the Sandals in Antigua and it was fab! I would be happy to answer any questions you have about it!
