    We’re going to Manchebo Beach Resort in Aruba for 7 nights and doing their all-inclusive honeymoon package, which is roughly $5500 for both of us. Flights will probably be around $1200 apiece because we want to fly first class (we never do this, but hey, it’s our honeymoon). Our budget was $10K so we’ll be a little under, but not by much.

    Costs will vary greatly depending on location. You can find really affordable all-inclusive deals in South America, Mexico, and even Jamaica.

    jmLL:  I just booked our all-inclusive trip to the Namale resort in Fiji for 7 days. The package includes airfare and transfers, the honeymoon bure, all meals and alcohol, $100 spa credit, horseback riding on the beach, one hour per day in the hydro-therapy room at the spa, champagne breakfast at a waterfall, a romantic candlelit dinner, and private room service dinner for around $10K. This was definitely at the top end of what we wanted to spend on our honeymoon, but we also really wanted to go somewhere special and I’m hopeful this will be it.

    We spent about $3400 total, which is more than we usually spend on an all-inclusive but we’d never gone at Christmas. We went to Gran Bahia Principe Sian Ka’an (which was amazing!) and it was a free upgrade from one of their other resorts which were also very nice!

    MrsN14:  we have the exact same honeymoon!!  we are going for 7 nights and ours was slightly higher, at about $5200.  but that could be the time we are going and maybe where we are coming from.

    jmLL:  It definitely does. I would have been happy waiting until the winter, but Fiance was adamant he wanted to go away immediately after the wedding, and to somewhere far, far away 🙂 We’re also not big party people, so the fact that it’s a small resort and will be even less crowded because it’s the summer was actually a big plus for us.

    jmLL:  6 nights at the Hilton Rose in Montego Bay, Jamaica for $2500. We chose a standard room (we won’t be there too much) with a island and ocean view. We booked through Expedia. Another thing to look for is a rewards system- Expedia lets you build points towards discounts on travel. We travel a lot so this was a plus for us. Their prices have always been the best in my experience.

    mtom:  WORTH IT. 😀 You’ll love the butler service. We would be swimming at the pool bar and be all, “I’m half drunk on fruity drinks, I need food from the cafe” *grab butler phone* and like 20 minutes later, there’d be food at the pool for us. It was so amazing.

    We just got back this weekend from ours…. 2 weeks…..it was technically 15 days with travel lol… March 8th-22nd at Grand Bahia Principe resort in Runaway Bay Jamaica…. it ended up being 7k which I think was a good deal given it included flights, airport transfers, taxes, the resort (all food and drinks) etc…. we spent extra money on doing excursions and such but thats up to you.

    We had an oceanview room that also looked directly out onto the pool as well. I wanted to try to book something adults only like sandals but we only booked it about a month before so all those were booked up already and we couldnt stand the though to wait an extra 4 weeks min lol (its been a hard year)

    In canada we have 2 major airlines that have vacation packages sections and I’ve booked our last 2 trips from westjet. (I didnt look to see where your coming from.)

    icanhearyousmile:  I don’t to thread hijack, but…..what else did you use the butlers for? Are you planning on making this an annual thing? At first, I couldn’t figure out why people went to Sandals every year, but after looking at all of the resorts, I’m already planning next year at Grenada (and the following at St. Lucia….etc). This is of course, assuming we like. Fiance has never had a beach vacation.

    I think you can get cheap all inclusives or very expensive depending on what matters to you. We went to Mexico in college (all inclusive) for 6 nights with flights included for $1700. For both of us combined. So cheap! But I cried when we got there it was so awful. For our Honeymoon we’re doing Punta Cana all inclusive for over $8K based on your poll. We used a travel agent who got us a better deal than expedia would have and customized our flights, transportation, fees, etc. I recommend shopping around and reading lots of reviews.

    mtom:  He brought us breakfast in bed twice, he made all of our reservations for activities, he made all of our dinner reservations, he brought us food if we asked, he would come check on everyone and bring fresh drinks, one day we were out on the glass bottom boat and it started to pour and he waited on the shore with an umbrella and towels to escort us off the boat, he set up our room all nice and fancy while we were out, brought us fresh champagne, and basically took care of anything we asked. I got sick while we were there and he even arranged for us to get a decongestant from off the resort – and he went and got it and brought it back. We had two butlers (one worked morning shift, one evening shift), and we did share them with other couples so a few times things were late or slow, but considering the size of the resort and the # of couples they were assigned, they were AMAZING! We can’t afford for it to be an annual thing, haha, our honeymoon was a gift, and DH got a bonus recently at work so we chose to spend it on a 1 year moon, as it were. If you’re going to do the scuba cert, and you have allergies or sinus issues or something, get a doctor’s note. I didn’t bring one and wasn’t aware that having allergies and having a sinus surgery a few years ago would disqualify me without a note. 🙁 So we’re gonna go back to Negril and get our scuba cert this time!
