The fiance and I are looking into honeymoon destinations. We were looking at the different all-inclusive resorts and then saw a bunch of the getaway Groupons that were over half the price. How would you feel about having to wait and book the honeymoon through Groupon once they are available. We are getting married in July. My faince also said that if we did it this way, we could get a photobooth at our wedding (this is something that I REALLY want but probably couldn’t afford unless we did this). What are your thoughts? I need HELP!!

I’ve seen the groupons for the resorts and the same thought crossed my mind! I think it’s a great idea for saving on the honeymoon! 🙂

Just make sure you read the fine print! So many of the Groupon Getaways are only able to be booked for very specific dates.

My husband and I booked our honeymoon through LivingSocial.
The hotels that advertise through both LS and Groupon are actively trying to fill rooms by creating these promotions – and are often very happy to help make sure you have a great trip. An empty room is a loss of money!
Make sure you check the fine print, although ours was pretty open. We saved so much money on the room that we splurged for all inclusive food/drinks and massages through the spa (which were 20% off due to the offer!)

We are probably going to try to find a deal, and we are trying to save all of our skymiles!!!

I would check yelp reviews for any Groupon/Living Social getaway accommodations- we had a not-so-great beach experience. It was ok for a two-night girls’ getaway, but if it had been my honeymoon, I would have been bawling.

I think we’ll likely do a groupon honeymoon. why not?? 🙂
I have a friend that stayed at a B&B with groupon and had a great time.
Just check reviews before you go and I think it’ll be fine!

I believe my friend just did her honeymoon as a double groupon… like 4 nights in one hotel and then 4 in another, in a different area. They enjoyed getting to see the different sights and with the money they saved they were able to buy excursions like ziplining! I say read the fine print and go for it!

We booked a Groupon getaway for our 1st anniversary. It was not a tropical vacation or anything but one of the hotel and spa package deals. We were not impressed. It turned out the spa where we had a day pass was under construction (makes sense why they were involved in this deal) and actually the spa was seperate from the hotel but in the Groupon photos it looked like it was all on one property. Maybe I should have done some additional research to know what we were getting into. Our room was fine with a quiet view of forrest behind the hotel. I would use Groupon again for a long weekend but I would look up trip advisor reviews and such before booking anything with them again.

I booked my honeymoon through groupon. I’ve also traveled previously through a super sweet groupon deal. I think the key is to do your research before you buy. Some of the resorts look really nice but have horrible reviews. It’s easy to make a place look nice in just a few photos. Trip Advisor.com often times has a ton of reviews and user uploaded photos.
I also found a really good deal for a photobooth with groupon!

We just got back from our Groupon Honeymoon. We spent four nights in the jungle of Belize (Maruba Resort Jungle Spa) and four nights on one of the cayes off Belize. It was awesome! Like everyone said above, check out TripAdvisor before you book, that way you can get an idea of what the place is really like. We were able to cram so much in and still had some downtime, plus it saved us plenty of money.
Off topic but another tip: if you are going some place where you would snorkel or scuba, I recommend buying a DriPack instead of getting a new waterproof camera or an underwater disposable one. it worked amazing for us!!
