Sandals Grande Antigua in March. Best vacation of my life, I wouldn’t change a thing!! We didn’t have to worry about going to the ATM or carrying around a wallet in a place we didn’t know, we swam up to bars, we swam in the ocean, we had a stocked bar, we had a couple’s massage, we had a four poster bed… It was magical.

we went to couples swept away in negril jamaica! i would HIGHLY recommend it! i can’t say enough good things about the resort. the people are so friendly, the food is delicious, its not some big highrise, instead its a bunch of little buildings scattered across 17 acres with probably 4 bungalows in each building. it was by far the best vacation i have ever been on! we cant wait to go back. We went in february and it was perfect! i know of someone else who went in October and enjoyed it as well. Seems to have really great weather all year long.

I leave for the Westin Playa Conchal, Costa Rica in just over 2 weeks for our honeymoon!!!  It is all inclusive and looks fabulous, but I obviously don’t know first hand just yet.  I’ll give an update after we get back in mid Jaunary!

hisgoosiegirl: I’ve heard great things about all the couples resorts! Jamaica is amazing in itself but it really helps to get a great resort too and everyone i’ve talked to who has stayed at any of the 4 couples resorts had great things to say.

We went to Playacar Palace in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.  It was awesome.  And in September, it was $2500 for the both of us, at all inclusive, including airfare.

We just went for a regular vacation, but chose Secrets Silversands in Riviera Maya.  We paid $750 each for 7 days including airfare.  That was crazy to me.  I felt like we were stealing from them.  Adults-only, all-inclusive, gorgeous.

We’ve been to a lot of AIs in Mexico. Our honeymoon will be at Secrets Maroma Beach. We have also stayed at Marival and Riu Palace Pacifico in P.V. and Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita in Riviera Maya. I would recommend them all.

totheislnds: (not letting me link your name) we went back and forth and back and forth between CSS and CSA. CSS was a bit cheaper and seemed smaller/more secluded so we went with that. But we heard good things about all of them from other people there and would love to go to both Negril ones.

Also want to get to St. Lucia someday!

We went to The Royal in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and had the best trip ever. Highly recommend. Went in late May-early June.

For our Honeymoon we went to Sandals Grande Antigua and it was beautiful!! It is sooo romantic and food was amazing!! We would go back in a heart beat!! We went in late Sept.

However, we have also been to Rui Palace Aruba and it is gorgeous as well!  Not as romantic as Antigua though but has lots of positives as well! We went in mid April and loved it!

We went to Bolongo Bay in St. Thomas. Loved it! It’s not fancy, but laid back which is what we wanted. If you want fancy, it isn’t the place for you, but if you want comfy, less people, all rooms right on the beach, amazing food, drinks and the best bar in all of St. Thomas, it is amazing! Gosh, that sounds like a commerical. Oops. lol

Edit: The snorkeling right from the beach was fantastic! We did that for hours every day.

This is a great thread, because we are definitely wanting to do all inclusive as well, and I love hearing opinions from people I trust 🙂

You might want to consider hurricane season when you choose a destination.
