Young Couple week in Negril

Jump to last reply

Hello! We are looking to visit a Caribbean island for our wedding anniversary. We have been to St. Kitts and Nevis. We are really open to anywhere with a pretty beach, nice hotel, and we like to experience the local culture, foods, shopping, nightlife, etc.

At a friends suggestion we have looked at Negril. After research I believe we would want to stay on 7 mile beach, but a lot of the hotels look old/run down? We don't need a fancy room, but we do like for it to be clean and new. Should we not be looking at Jamaica?

In St Kitts we stayed at the Marriot which was a new property and many of the hotels I have looked at in Punta Cana, DR and areas of Mexico look to be very nice/new properties as well. The hotels in Jamaica look to be much older and dated with reviews talking about bugs and broken AC units. I guess we should mention price, we'd like to spend around $3,000 on this trip if it's all inclusive w/ airfare, or plan to spend about that much on hotel/airfare/meals if its not AI but we are flexible on price. Traveling from Austin.

We have also looked at Grenada, St Lucia, Turks and Caicos, etc. Turks and St Lucia seem to be out of our price range.

Can you make recommendations around our price range? We are open to go anywhere!
