Jamaica vs. Curacao Ritz/HalfMoon vs. Hyatt Curacao

Jump to last reply

Hello again...I recently posted asking for advice on Ritz San Juan vs Ritz Jamaica....this is a trip for myself, husband, sister ( both late twenties) parents, mid-fifties...golf is important...casino was...but we have eliminated that. We have been to aruba, bahamas, puerto rico and dominican and wanted to try something new. Dad...needs a larger resort, with a couple bars, and restaurants, even if we dont eat at them...we dont need an iberostar complex, but a 29 room hotel, like a Jamaica Inn, won't cut it....Bigger pool a must and decent beach...does not have to be perfect, but obviously shouldn't be the CON...of the place we choose....

Direct flight at must. We are from NJ...and there are direct flights from NJ to Montego Bay and Curacao..( suprisingly) which is why I researched the Hyatt....we love the Hyatt Aruba, and this is brand new...If you have been, people say its far from town...LIKE HOW FAR? DO YOU FEEL Trapped? And honestly How bad is this beach that I am reading about...we like to eat at nice restaurants, so maybe a car rental is a good idea....Im sure the hotel is nice, since it is a new hyatt....and there is a golf course, which looks good....

Now Jamaica...Ive been 2xs...once negril, once montego bay for my Honey Moon...we stayed at Half Moon, it was lovely, husband got veryyyyyy ill and has bad memories, im pushing for jamaica to give it one more chance. Sister wants to go, shes been before and likes the island and exploring...i know i know...its not the safest...my dad hears Ritz...and thinks "how can you go wrong...plus the golf course is great and next to Half Moons course which you can use....we can rent a car for 2 days a do a trip to negril beaches/check out ricks cafe, etc...do something else another day.....Question is RITZ vs. HALF MOON...Ritz has the best deals...HM....much more expensive....

Anyone have any opinions on this? THANK YOU!
