Secrets Wild Orchid or Jewell Dunns River

Jump to last reply

Okay last question before I make this tough decision. I wish I could plan more trips like this and then this decision would be less important. Being that we have never been anywhere tropical this is a big decision for us. We want modern luxurious rooms but is Jewell rooms that outdated? I live in Las Vegas and I would rather stay at the Wynn or Palazzo vs staying at MGM or Mandalay Bay.

We are down to 2 places and I want to know everyone's opinion. Because I am having a hard time deciding.

Secrets Pluses:
Beautiful new modern rooms
Lots of Pools
Bigger beach
more alcohol choices
more of what we are used to staying in US

Secrets Minuses:
Man made beach
Large resort with 700 suites
AC is poor in rooms? (read reviews)
Plane noise

Jewell Pluses:
smaller more intimate resort (also a negative)
1-bedroom suite would be same price as preferred club at secrets
lots of romantic add-ons (cabanas, dinner on the beach, etc)
Closer to excisions
Sounds like exceptional service (although many reviews say bad service)
better beach

Jewell minuses:
small resort (will we have enough to do for 5 days)
smaller beach
locals bothering you on jetskis and through the fence
only 2 pools
limited food choices
lots of people say food is not too good??

Can anyone help me with my decision?
