I went to Turks and Caicos last year and it was absolutely amazing! Chrystal clear, warm water, fine white sand and so much sun. Would definately recommend it! We stayed at the Beaches resort and it was great. The food was to die for. However, it was a family resort, and depending on your honeymoon vision, you might not want childrn running around.

My bf and I went to a couple places. I wasn’t a honeymoon, but stil awesome.

Puerto Rico just outside of San Juan at La Concha Renaissance (part of Marriott)

was beautiful. The beach was also nice, but the resort was just great. The drinks were OUT OF THIS WORLD!

the following year we went to Cayman Islands at a Marriott again.

The resort was nice, but the best part was the crystal clear water and amazing snorkling!!!!!

Good luck in chosing!

Yup we stayed at Sandals La Toc, but we also visited one of the other Sandals on St. Lucia, the Sandals Grande, while on our trip.  I would recommend either one, but for a better safe swimming beach, I would recommend the Sandals Grande. 

As far as ‘extras’, they gave us some freebies, which included a bottle of champage & chocolate covered strawberries.  The food at Sandals was wonderful, and we liked that the chaise floats for the pool. Even the nightly entertainment was great.    Oh and we loved the ‘no tipping’ rule..that was for real.. we tried to tip on numerous occasions and they ( waiters, bartenders) would not take $ from us!

Let me know if you have any specific questions =)

ETA: Just re-read your post to me, they didn’t offer any excursions that we knew of (that would have been awesome though!!)…they can get pricey! But we still never felt like we overpaid for any part of our stay at Sandals.

There were a lot of young kids, but I don’t remember ever being annoyed by them. There is a little 50’s style diner with make your own ice cream, and a pool with slides and a lazy river where most of the families and children were. The resort was gorgeous, and so big! It has something like 16 restaraunts, 5 pools, a lazy river, nightly entertainment, 2 big waterslides, a surf simulator, definately check out the website! The only thing that I found weird about it was how late some of the kids were up! And like I said earlier, the food was probably the best I have ever had.

@meginstl:

we did not have all inclusive in PR, and it does get pretty pricey ($12 – $15 / mixed drink)

In Cayman, we had all-inclusive though. We gained 10 lbs in a week 😉

Both places are great!

This ear we are thinking about St. Johns Westin, it’s right on a national-forest park and it’s supposed to be breath taking!

I am not married yet, but we just came back from a trip from Punta Cana. The name of it was the Grand palladium (im not sure if I spelt it right), but we upgraded our room and somehow ended up in the Honeymoon suite since it was available, and I couldnt say enough nice things about it, there was two types, one was right on the beach and the other one was a swim up. The room was very nice, and clean, the people there are soo friendly, the weather is amazing, food is amazing like I said I just can’t say enough good things lol.

We went to Couples Swept Away in Negril Jamaica for our honeymoon.  We were there for 9 days/8 nights….all inclusive for under $4k, plus we got insurance too, in case of bad weather…which there wasn’t.  It was adults only, and actually couples only, so no singles.  Food & drinks were amazing, not to mention one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (it was literally voted that)!  It was amazing & we def plan on going back someday!

@meginstl: I don’t think you will be disappointed, but I haven’t been to Ocho Rios so I can’t really say… all I know is Negril WAS beautiful.  You should check on the Couples website – there is a board on there and you see what people are saying about Tower Isle.  You can always go to Negril another time 🙂 or maybe you could take a day trip to Negril?
