Hubby and I went to St. Lucia for our honeymoon. I’m pretty sure we aren’t going to be able to top that. We loved our Sandals’ stay though, and want to go to a different Sandals’ next year.
Does anyone have opinions about either one of the places? I think Antigua is supposed to be prettier, but it is also more expensive. I’m wondering if Jamaica is good enough for a normal vacation. Thoughts?

My SIL and bro went to St. Lucia for their honeymoon too and loved it. I’ve looked at Antigua and would love to go! Further away the better for me 😉 But my Future Sister-In-Law and her fiance went to Jamaica and loved it there too, that’s actually where he proposed to her <3

Of the two choices, I’d probably pick Antigua. I like to go to less common destinations when I can and I feel like a lot less people (at least that I have talked to) have been to Antigua vs. Jamaica. But I’m sure either would be great!

I just researched and apparently there isn’t a Sandals… but if you are open to other resorts, what about Punta Cana, Dominican Republic? We went there for our honeymoon and it was AMAZING! We were also considering Jamaica as I think they are fairly similar

I can’t speak to Sandals, but we went to a Couples resort in Jamaica for our honeymoon, and it was incredible! (Couples Sans Souci)

Good suggestion, but we went to Punta Cana in 2011.
Did you like the Jamacian Island? Was it pretty? Were the people friendly? Did you do any excursions? Or did you just stay on the resort the entire time?

Where we were (Ocho Rios) was gorgeous — very green and lush! The staff at the resort were friendly, although not as friendly as the staff at places we’ve been in Mexico. We stayed on the resort pretty much the whole time! From what I understand, Couples isn’t quite as luxurious as Sandals, but we absolutely loved it.

Another vote for Jamacia! We stayed at Couples Tower Isle in Ocho Rios and it was amazing! So beautiful and the staff was so wonderful! I could go on and on about it. My Brother-In-Law and his wife went to Couples Swept Away for their honeymoon and loved it there as well. I haven’t really read or heard about a bad experience with Couples.

Jamaica!!! We stay at couples negril and it far exceeds our expectations. We are going back in April for our honeymoon.
the island is so lush and beautiful. we didnt leave the resort except once because there’s so much included that we didn’t have to. I think this time we will probably only leave the resort once or twice. Maybe!
I also love that the couples resorts are boutique resorts. We don’t like the big resorts.

We went to Jamaica and loved it! However, i would love antigua too! We left the resort several times went horse back riding, ziplining, shopping, riverboarding, several drives down the coast. It is a poor country but the people were all soooo nice! Dominican is awesome as well and very friendly people!
