Hoping some of you can help me decide on a property for our October honeymoon. Right now we’re looking at Jamaica, specifically Secrets Wild Orchid and Sandals Royal Caribbean. Does anyone have any recent experience or advice on either property? I’ve looked at trip advisor but there is so much information and reviews it makes my head spin.
I know Negril’s beaches are better, but I just don’t like how far from the airport it is. It seems both Sandals & Secrets have their advantages and disadvantages and I can’t decide which is better!
We usually start off at the beach then move to the pool/swim up area in the afternoon. Does anyone have an opinion on which property has a nicer beach or pool? I like the freedom of not requiring reservations for dinner but it’s not a “must.” We’ve stayed at twp of the Excellence properties in Mexico & DR before and love, love, loved them.
We absolutely must have an adults only, all-inclusive property. We looked at Cabo but since a lot of the beaches aren’t swimable, we scrapped that idea. Mexico is too dicey in October. Neither one of was wants to go to Aruba since we’re planning a trip there next year. It seems that the hurricane safe islands (ABC Islands & other southern caribbean islands) tend to not have too many adults only AI’s. If they do (St. Lucia, etc.) they take all day to fly to from NJ and involve layovers in Miami.
I know I’m making this harder than it needs to be but for the money we’re spending and the fact that it’s our honeymoon, I really want to do my research.
I’d love to hear some opinions.
