Okay so I fianlly got the worlds most perfect travel agent! I’m going over the list of places that she has sent me to start with, beautiful places, all inclusive hotels.
But suddenly I started to think about something….it’s a hotel, right? Well they arn’t the thickest of walls, mostly couples there are on anniversaries and honeymoons….time spent in the room is going to be used doing the Bed Time Boogie Woogie. Well I don’t need to hear other peoples…. "music" lets say, and as out spoken and such as I am, when it comes to, ahem…my "music" – I’d like to not be heard either weather it be loud or quite.
So for those of you who have gone on your honeymoons already – was this an issue? I mean even a little. I like a competition as mush as the next girl, but 7 – 10 days of it…??? LOL.

You should just ask your travel agent about the quality of sound proofing. Some resort hotels are very proud of their sound proofing. my FI and I like to drive up to Coeur d’Alene for the weekend; the big resort there is a very nice place and the first place he took me for a big weekend away. In checking out the website (before that first trip) I noted that they actually advertise their "superior sound proofing," which made me wonder about his motives…
On one trip they were actually remodeling the room right next to ours, involving extensive use of power tools, and I had no idea until the workmen opened the door while we were in the hallway.

This totally doesn’t answer your question but I just had to comment to say this is the most hilarious post topic I’ve seen on here. You have a way with words, Sweeney 😉

I agre with smartl. I opened this post thinking it was going to be about the reception music (what should my first dance be???) and I about spit out my Diet Coke as I started reading.
I have no suggestions and honestly, hadn’t even thought about this! I’m interested now too!

I am right there!!! I had not idea what to think either when i started reading, but I love it!!!
I guess it depends on where you are staying, so I would ask the travel agent!!!

I stayed at a hilton in Puerto Rico and the soundproofing was awful. I tried to take a nap one afternoon and couldn’t simply because of the TV in the next room over.

Never mind the perfect aganet fell short – I got what I waanted…sort of. I’m booking the trip on my own now. The plane – and I know this sounds way dumb, but the plane she was sending us on was like a stick of gum with wings. I am terrified of flying, it’s going to take a big plane and a bottle of tequilla to get me to mexico!
Plus she’s avereaging like 4 days to return and e-mail and I’m a "NOW" kinda person…..lol. – not her fault but we’re not saving anything with her so….I’m doing it alone.

My uncle offered us the use of his condo in Hawaii for our honeymoon, but I couldn’t do it. There’s no AC and you have to sleep with all the windows open and you’re like in an apartment complex. No Way! I didn’t want to have to censor myself on my own honeymoon. Anyway, my big tip is to buy a box fan wherever you travel. If there’s a Wal-Mart there you can buy them for $10- that’s what we did for our family vacation at that Hawaiian condo. They have three settings and can be super-loud and will block out anything- barking dogs, rowdy neighbors, or Bedtime Boogie Woogie.

It pays to pay for real walls and not that tissue paper crap.

Check hotels.com or yelp if available to read reviewS. after cleanliness and customer service, this is usually the most popular complaint (I couldn’t sleep all night bc of the kids partying next door!!) etc.

We stayed in a mountain loft in NC where we are pretty sure the neighbors couldn’t hear us. It was secluded on a lake so it felt pretty safe…haha! We were worried about the same thing. I say…it’s your honeymoon. Whatever! Enjoy it and try not to be paranoid. Hahah.
