I did Sandals Whitehouse and had a great time. It was so relaxing, the people were beyond friendly. I used the spa, we vegged out. We did watersports when we felt like it and we were social once in a while. The food was yummy, especially the seafood!

Darling Husband and I went to Sandals Royal Bahamian.  We had an excellent experience, but I know of another bee on her that wasn’t too impressed.  I will say that the private island made ALL the difference for us.  We spent the majority of our time there.

We’re planning for a vacation in a few years and would like to go to Sandals La Toc in St. Lucia or possibly Sandals Negril.  They both looking amazing!

Also on my list of places I would like to go are Jalouise Plantation and Ladera (both in St. Lucia).

We went to Sandals Antigua and we LOVED it!!!! The resort had activities that were included.  Hobby cat sailing (which they provided lessons), snorkling, kayak’s, etc.  They had eight or nine restaurant’s/places to eat. One of the resturants “barefoot by the sea” was our favorite.  They have fire pits at night surrounding the restaurant and it was beautiful. Mmmm..lobster!  A couple restaurants had a view of the ocean.  I believe they were voted most romantic resort. We went on an excursion off the resort to go zip lining which was alot of fun.  Sandals also had a swim up bar. We thought a frozen drink called the “dirty banana” was pretty good. lol!  Resort grounds were well maintained.  The ocean was not rough when we were there. The beach was alittle narrow though, but we didn’t mind.  They also offered us a free room upgrade when we got there. Good luck!

We are doing a Couples resort in Jamaica. There are 4 to choose from in Jamaica. After my own research, the price is cheaper and there are way more inclusions than other resorts. And it’s all about couples and romance, which is totally great for a honeymoon. Check out their website. PM me if you want any more information from what I’ve found.

We went to Secrets Maroma Beach..and loved it.  I posted a recap post somewhere on here. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great, and the beach beautiful.  We hung out on the beach during the day, swam in the amazing water, ordered food/drinks on the beach, then we’d go to the swim up bar in the afternoon and hang out there until going up to our room to get ready.  The service was also wonderful.  We walked along the beach some evenings before dinner, and enjoy some of the nightlife there if we were up for it.  I’d highly recommend it.

I also did a lot of research on the Couples resorts and it came down to a close tie of where we wanted to go between Secrets Maroma and Couples Swept Away in Negril.  That resort looks beautiful as well.  Good luck choosing your honeymoon destination – it is such a fun time in your life!  Enjoy the planning 🙂

What about the Gran Bahia Principe in Punta Cana, Ambar section (adults only) of the resort, but connectivity to the rest of the spot for all the options you could need for meals, things to do, etc?

We did Sandals Montego bay years back and LOVED it. Heading to Sandals Whitehouse for the Honeymoon. His family has also had expierences at 2 other Sandals resorts and came back with raving reviews. I don’t think you can go wrong with Sandals.

FH and I are planning on going to Sandals Antiguar for our honeymoon. I hear Sandals is supposed to be the nicest and cleanest and includes more than the other “all inclusives”

We did Sandals St. Lucia and loved it. The 3 ressorts is a huge benefit as you have access to 3 differnt beaches and lots of restaurants so your chances of getting restaurant reservations. I did a (non-biased) review http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/st-lucia-sandals-review-time Hope that helps. Also, snorkeling is great because 2 ressorts go off sight and the Grande is on sight so you will at least get the chance to see 2+ areas if you sign up for the different snorkeling trips.

I have also stayed at Sandals Negril and Royal Carribean in Jamaica and I must admit, I was not sold on my first experience but not would def. go back to Sandals. Negril has the best beach of all their Jamaica properties but you also have a super long scary bus ride to get there from the airport (about 2 hours because they stop at a chicken shack). Royal had rough water all 3 days we were there so snorkeling was out.

In college I did a Spring Break trip to Breezes Bahamas and while it was also AI, the food was not as good as my experience with Sandals and motorized water sports were not included (i.e. water skiing and tubing).
