My hubby and I are trying to decide on what kind of honeymoon we want….more laid-back all-inclusive (such as Tower Isle couples resort in Jamaica), or something with more to do such as Universal Studios. I would still like to have that honeymoon feel though. Is there a resort/hotel near Universal Studios that anyone can recommend? I would like to go to Universal Studios maybe 2 days out of our stay (or can you see everything in 1 day?), and maybe just relax the other days, so I would still like a nice hotel with not too many kids around (if that’s possible!). Also, is there much else to do besides Universal Studios??
Or if anyone has any other ideas, couples resorts, etc, I’m open to those too! We are hoping to go the first or 2nd week of August so it’s sort of last minute for planning!

There’s a Hard Rock hotel at universal studios. It’s very nice from what I saw. I however was very disappointed with Universal when I went two years ago. I love amusement parks, but I found most of the rides to be very dated. My FI and are going to Tower Isle actually. I figure I can go to an amusement park any time, but my honeymoon should be special. There are enough excursions included in the all inclusive package to keep us busy, but we also have the option of being lazy on the beach some days too. Best of both worlds.

Hard Rock Hotel is awesome, and worth it for the pool alone! Portifino Bay is also nice, and grown up. Both are onsite hotels, and you can walk to both parks, and City Walk has quite a few restaurants to choose from.
I love Universal! Not as much as Disney, but I usually go there every other year. If you stay onsite, you’ll have their front of the line access so that’ll cut down on wait times for rides. If you’re into Harry Potter, you’ll love it!
