    Jamaica…but probably not for a reasona that would persuade you to go!

    I haven’t been there yet, but we faced the same dilemma and ended up going with Jamaica.  We’re staying at Montego Bay and were able to get a beachfront butler villa for the same price as it would’ve been in a normal room in St. Lucia.  Plus, since Jamaica is a shorter flight, we’ll get to spend more time there.  I was very against Jamaica initially b/c I felt like it was a spring break destination, but it really made sense for us.  Good luck!  I’m sure you’ll have a great time no matter where you stay!

    We chose Sandals St. Lucia! We have friends that have gone there for their honeymoons and we have heard nothing but good things about the resorts!

    I would say St. Lucia if you don’t care about price, just because it is more beautiful. But we chose Jamaca because we can’t even afford plane tickets to St. Lucia. Geez 🙂

    I hate to be the negative one but we went to Sandals St. Lucia Grande for our honeymoon and was SO thankful to be home.  It was one of the worst experiences ever.  I don’t know if we are spoiled with our Louisiana cooking, but My Darling Husband and I did not like the food at all.  It was so bland and boring.  The Japenese rest offered sushi and it wasn’t real sushi at all.  It was carrot sushi.  Seriously.  The drinks were made from straight sugar and a juice concentrate, no fresh fruit drinks like we were expecting with little umbrellas. Notta.  The service was just ok.  The rooms were just ok.  We paid too much to not be completely thrilled by the honeymoon.  I really think ya’ll made a bad choice =(

    The worst thing was the taxi ride to and from the airport and the beach.  The beach was beautiful but locals are constantly walking up and down trying to sell you things.  You get tired of saying “no” all day.  You’d think they’d let you relax but they don’t.  Every five minutes someone was coming up to us trying to get us to buy their “necklace” or whatever….

    We went to Sandals in Jamaica Negril. If you have some extra cash to spend, might be worth it to get an upgraded room in Jamaica instead of going all the way to St.Lucia. I would’ve given Sandals a 5 out of 10 otherwise, but our awesome swim-up river suite and personal butler service made it more like an 8.

    We’re thinking of the Jamaica Royal Carribean.  I would love to do St Lucia but it’s such a pain in the butt to get there.  We’d have to fly somewhere, stay overnight, and fly to St Lucia in the morning.

    This is helpful, as I’m having the same trouble. For those that did Jamaica, did you feel it was clean and the food was well prepared? Also, were insects ever an issue? I’ve heard mixed reviews. I’m considering the Jamaica Sandals in White House and Negril.
