We booked a trip to Mexico with them last year.  It was way cheaper than anywhere else we found.  We did it on a whim as a last minute thing so we booked about 1 week before we went.  But yeah, great site. would definitely book through them again.

I had a destination wedding in Bahamas and a bunch of my guests booked through that site cuz they had a great deal on air plus hotel.  Their prices are usually much lower, and many of my guests booked while they had a special coupon code advertised on top of that.  Look for those deals and you’ll get an even better price! 

Good luck!!!

We booked our honeymoon to Ocho Rios, Jamaica through them. We had a friend that uses the site and recommended. We had no issues and got a good deal, we thought! Our friend uses it a lot and loves it.

By the way, we stayed at the Riu in Ocho Rios. It is an all inclusive.It was my first time to the Carribbean. It was great though and I really loved it. We also got vouchers from cheapcarribbean.com for $20 each worth of spa treatments. That was just for booking. Not sure if it was a special or something they do all the time. We ended up using it towards massages on the beach! It was great. Keep the Riu in mind if you’re looking at places. I had a blast!

No, it’s not adults only. But we paid around $3,000 for a weeks stay including airfare. We had a junior suite and private transfer from the hotel. And when we looked at Sandals and one other adult only resort it would’ve cost us closer to $6,000 for similar room type/length of stay. So, we felt better just spending less and forgoing the adults only since we are saving up for a trip to Italy next year. We didn’t want to splurge too much this year.

Also, the private transfer from the airport was $100 extra, but so worth it. We booked it all through cheapcarribean.com We didn’t have to take the bus with all the other people. Some couples told us it took an extra 1.5-2 hours to make all the stops at the different hotels! The airport is in Montego Bay and it’s about a 1.5 hr. trip to begin with. You can just stay in Montego Bay though. There is a Riu Resort in Montego Bay, also. If you want to go to excursions though like Dolphin Cove or Dunne’s River, those are in Ocho Rios and you’d have to take a bus out and make the drive. If you just want to lay on the beach though, then Montego Bay would be much more convenient. If you want to do multiple tours though, try and stick with Ocho Rios because that is where most of the tourist stuff is. We petted a dolphin at Dolphin Cove and went to Mystic Mountain where we did a zip line tour. Also climbed the falls at Dunne’s River.  

Negril, Jamaica is supposed to be nice, but we didn’t go there. That’s an even further drive from the airport.

My fiance and I booked our vacation last November through cheapcarribean.com.  We stayed at the Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  It was a great experience all around, and we had no trouble with the booking or anything else.  We’d definitely book through them again.

I haven’t booked through them personally, but some of my friends have and they said they would do it again. We are thinking about using them for our honeymoon too. 🙂

PS. I am from the Albany area too!! Where are you getting married?!

We have used the site twice to go on vacation and have been happy with our results both times. The first time we stayed at the RIU Montego Bay in Jamaica and the second time in the DR. The transportation was smooth sailing, the resorts were nice for the cost, and it was nice to have an all-inclusive feature.

I see that you have Jamaica as your first choice. I would recommend choosing Negril over MB b/c the water and beaches are much nicer. We didn’t visit Ochos Rios so I can’t provide info on that city. The only problem we had with our package deal on CheapCaribbean.com to Jamaica were flight choices. Keep in mind the flight will be into Montego Bay’s airport and then you have a 2-hr drive to Negril. We eventually chose MB over Negril b/c the flight landed at 8pm in Jamaica and then took off back to the states at 6am and staying in Negril would have forced us to lose time enjoying our time on the island. The flight time options are not the greatest, which is partly why the package deal is so cheap. If we could do it over again we have chosen Negril and added an extra vacation day to account for the extra travel time. I would def recommend to add an extra day for a small additional fee, so you can spend more time enjoying your honeymoon. Also, if you have several airports nearby to where you live I would play around with flights b/c some airports are cheaper than others when booking your trip on the site., unless cost isn’t a big factor. Just my two cents. Happy honeymoon hunting!

I booked with them for my upcoming honeymoon to Mexico and it was SOOOO CHEAP and easy.  I can’t vogue for the trip itself, but we’ve had no problems yet!
