ALL are good.
have you thought about Puerto Rico! I go to school here. I know you dont want a beach but they have a rainforest you can hike in, snorkeling expeditions, horse back riding on the beach, hang gliding, bioluminence bay, caves, fishing, parks, old cities, shopping and you can get a ferry to the islands Culebra and Vieques. Here are some links
Here are some resorts.

We ended up choosing Couples in Jamaica after looking at all the reviews and recommendations!

COUPLES!!! We are going to Tower Isle, but my best friend did Swept Away & lovvvvved it! Cheaper than Sandals, but includes way more inclusions (for free)
whoops- didn’t read your last reply! Good choice! Which one?

We looked at all of them and chose Sans Souci! I really liked tower isle too. That was our second choice! I just wished the Isle was open to everyone after a certain time. The nudie beach at Sans Souci is open to everyone after 5pm, yay! We don’t party or anything, and I heard that San Souci is more for the relaxed crowd lol. They all looked so nice that I don’t think there is a bad choice for a couples resort!

Me and Fiance visited Sandal Royal Caribbean last year in Jamaica and loved it!!! We also went to Sandals Royal Bahamian this year and loved it even more!!! WE LOVE SANDALS

We went to Sandals Antigua and it was FABULOUS. Swim up bars, snorkeling, clean beaches, jet skiing, couples massage, delicous food, huge pools, horseback ridingo on the beach, excellent staff… I just changed my background to a picture of the beach because I miss it so much. Oh girl, get yourself there.
second best day of my life:

We are pretty sure we are doing Sandals Montego Bay … we compared Sandals to other all inclusives… and from what we found and what our TA told us, Sandals includes way more inclusives…
I’m seeing some here say Couples or Secrets do.. .just curious what additional inclusions you’ve found? I’m genuinely interested not challenging… scuba/snorkeling is the main thing we want to try and neither appear to be unlimited free at the others?

The only thing about Montego Bay is you will have air traffic all the time… you will be very close to the airport. I would suggest Sandals Negril, Best beaches, no airplanes!!

The inclusions seem similar to me. The price was a lot cheaper for Couples, though. That’s another thing that sold me, lol. Once I’m done with school I’ll plan more expensive vacations
From what I understand, all Snorkeling is free and unlimited. Here are the rules for SCUBA:
Dives are offered every day with a deep dive in the morning and shallow in the afternoon. On
Saturday, we offer a two tank dive in the morning only; night dives are offered, based on
availability ($50 additional charge.) Certified divers can dive once per day. A second dive in a
day is subject to availability. Consider upgrading your certification while you are visiting by
taking an Advanced Course for an additional charge.

It looks like SCUBA is totally free unless you want a night dive or you are not certified. I’m SCUBA certified, but my fiance is not and we don’t have the money to pay for the lessons right now. We are going to probably do the free crash course scuba lesson and one free dive for non-certified people. You have to pay for extra dives if you are not certified. I could do the free 1 dive per day without my Fiance, but I probably won’t lol. If he really really loves it, we will pay for an extra dive and think about certification for him in the future.

I agree with HeatherShane about Montego Bay……it is practically right next to the airport. Be sure to keep that in mind.

everything you described pretty described my honeymoon at Couples Negril in Jamaica! it was FABULOUS! only adults only resort we have been to and we can’t wait to go back. and i have heard Couples Swept Away is just as good. water is super calm. not too crazy of a night life, lots of activities, gorgeous beach, fine dining… seriously, every single detail you named above described our honeymoon, i would think you have been there already 😉

all the excursions we did were included (no extra fees) at Couples. we did snorkeling, a catamaran cruise, wind surfing. you can even take a scuba lesson free and get your first dive free.

Yeah, I’ve heard about the long “commute” to the resort from the airport. Honestly don’t think it will be that big of a deal. Flying from here to Jamaica and riding a bus is nothing compared to trips my Fiance and I have taken in the past as far as hours-traveling goes.
