I have never been to Jamaica, but when looking at going there at one time, I thought about going to Montego Bay or Negril. Ocho Rios is close to Dunns River Falls, but it seems like it is one of the busiest places in Jamaica. I know Sandals is for adults only and I think there are some others, so I would look into those. I don’t know if you have a travel agent, but they would definitely be able to give you suggestions.

We are honeymooning at Sandals Grande Riviera in Ocho Rios Jamaica.  Fiance and I ADORE Jamaica…it’s absolutely gorgeous!!!  We love Sandals, it’s all inclusive…even the DRINKS and TIPS are included!!!!  It also is adults and COUPLES only.  Some clubs are adults only but you can get frat boys and boobie girls bopping around.  LOL.  Couples only is usually more romantic…no one is there to hook up w anyone other than each other.  LOL!!!

We loved Secrets Wild Orchid in Montego Bay. Beautiful resort, exceptional service, and all the food and drink you can ask for (delicious with everything and tips included).

We stayed in Montego Bay at the Rose Hall Resort (owned by Hilton) in January. It’s a nice resort, and I loved the lazy river and slides, but everything closed early. We are lazy people and like to just hang around, so pools closing at 5/6ish (maybe it’s just a winter thing?) was not my cup of tea. And the beach was seaweed ridden – yuck. Otherwise, it was a beautiful resort.

I do love Monetgo Bay though. My sister said at RIU and seemed to enjoy it. Wish I could remember where she stayed this past year.

We stayed at Couples Sans Souci in Ocho Rios – it was all-inclusive and couples only as well. We loved it – it had a very tropical feeling and the people that work there got to know us and know what type of drinks we liked 🙂 Felt like staying with family!

@brittanym526:  We are thinking about doing CSS.  Did you do Dunns River falls?

I will be going to Couple Negril for our honeymoon and i think it looks amazing!  I know someone who stayed at Couples Swept Away and they LOVED it.  Same with Couples Sans Souci.  so basically i think any of the Couples resorts you will be happy with.

@cherrycoke: I did the Falls a few years ago and it was a blast. Just have water shoes, and remember to leave everyting valuable at the resort. While it was fun, I think once was enough for me – my body ached after it! If my Fiance wanted to go, I may consider going again, but I know it would be rough!

I can strongly recommend Couples Swept Away in Negril. I’ve been there twice, and got engaged there. It very much caters to honeymooners and it feels very private even when it’s full to capacity. And they include everything – even snorkeling, SCUBA and waterskiing, and all liquor (not all all-inclusives do, you have to compare the details). We really enjoyed the sunset snorkel cruise, and the food was great – they have several restaurants, and every one of them was wonderful. The beach, of course, is spectacular!

I went to Jamaica about 4 years ago and we stayed in Montego Bay but went to Ochos Rios and Negril for day trips and if I ever go back I would stay in Negril! The beaches in Negril are beautiful and they have beautiful sunsets!!! My friend stayed at Sandles Montego Bay and it is right next to the airport so I wouldn’t stay there unless you don’t mind low flying aircraft passing over all day/night! I would definitely take a day trip to Ochos Rios also and visit Dunns River Falls if you like thrills!!
