I want to go to Turks and Caicos so bad, but have been to Jamaica and it was not the best place I have ever been.

Agree with @tksjewelry. I’ve been to Sandals Negril; beautiful place, wonderful people, fun vacation, but I’ve seen better water and had better food in resorts in the Mediterranean. I even preferred the beach and water in Hawaii. You definitely will have a great time if you go, but personally I wouldn’t call it the very best vacation I ever had. I’ve heard great things about Turks and Caicos but never having been there I can’t really compare.

I would go to Negril. I think the beaches are great, and you’ll find a lot of beautiful resorts there.

What a great dilemma to be in!  Wink

I’ve been to Jaimaica and it is gorgeous, HOWEVER, I’ve heard oustanding things about Turks and Caicos!!  I SOOO want to go there in the future! 

I suppose you need to decide what is more important to you and your fiance’. How much time will you spend at the resort?  etc…

ok..My Fi has been to Jamaica (but Montego Bay, not Negril) and he said he would NEVER take me there.  However, an ex boss of mine took his wife to Negirl on their honeymoon and loved it.  I’ve heard that for Honeymoons in Jamaica, Negril is the best bet.

Now, Turks & Caicos is STUNNING. If you want gorgeous beaches–that’s what you will get.  I’ve been there and was actually DREAMING last night that I was there =)My Fi says it does not compare to Jamaica. Ok, but Club Med is NOT a couple place AT ALL.  My very single party animal co-worker goes there EVERY YEAR.  She describes it as ‘summer camp’ for adults. 

We looked into going to Turks for our honeymoon, and were eyeing The Gansenvoort…have you looked into the prices at that hotel? 

We ultimately chose St. Lucia because we wanted the beauty along with the option of being adventerous..not much to do in Turks & Caicos, other than snorkeling or scuba diving.

I just came back from Club Med Turks & Caicos.

It was not the Ritz but I love Club Med… all-inclusive!

There were few honeymooners and a wedding during my stay.

I highly recommend it for everyone.

Turks and Caicos!! We have a place there and are planning to honeymoon there in April. I can’t say much for Club Med but if you stay some where in Grace Bay you will not be disappointed! Check out the Amanyara. There are also many condos and private homes for rent. I think the beaches and water are so much better than Jamaica. There is no rainforest type stuff like zip lines or hiking in the TUrks but you will see much better diving, snorkeling and water sports. The island itself is more stable and has amazing restaurants. Conch is a local favorite and aphrodisiac 😉 Some other things we have done there is horseback riding, spa days, parasailing, conch dive, reef scuba dives… there really is plenty to do!
