Antigua or Tahiti???

We will be going on our honeymoon in December 1999. Can't decide between Antigua or Tahiti? Any info. as to which is more desirable place would be great. We would prefer a resort that doesn't allow small children. Thanks. <BR>

It's great to have choices! You could always compromise tho, and go to galley bay in Antigua which has the gauguin huts in Tahitian style. All inclusive, only 60 rooms and no kids. We're heading there in Mid Sept ourselves. But hmmmm. Tahiti? Fletcher Christian and the Bounty? Roast pig luaus? In MY wildest dreams!

Save bundles of money. Use it for a house or new furnishings and go to Antigua or any other island in the Caribbean. Before you go the Tahiti, find out what a bottle of beer costs there. Fiji is a much better choice in the Pacific for a honeymoon.

DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT TAHITI. MY HUSBAND AND I WENT TO THE PINEAPPLE BEACH CLUB IN ANTIGUA--A NICE PLACE, BUT NOT OUTSTANDING, AND THERE WERE KIDS...

We are going to Sandals Antigua this weekend. Last year at this time, we went to Tahiti. While I can't compare (yet -- e-mail me next week for a report on Antigua), here's the scoop on Tahiti. <BR> <BR>Don't stay on Tahiti. Rather, choose one of the other islands. We stayed at the Sofitel on Moorea. This hotel has the most unbelievable beach I have ever seen, ever. The food at this particular hotel left a little to be desired, though.

How long do you want to take to get there? It probably depends where you're leaving from. Long flights aren't all that romantic.

I've money is no object, and you've got a nice long vacation, and love snorkeling/diving GO TO TAHITI. I wouldn't want to spent more than a couple days on Antigua - there just isn't that much there and there are many other islands that I would prefer. Have you considered a Club Med or Sandals/Couples somewhere? Club Med Bora Bora for example. Have you been to Hawaii (Maui or Kauii)? I tend to be on a ship (Windjammer) in the Caribbean, so I don't stay on one island more than a day, and get to see a lot. You might consider Windjammer if you don't get sea sick. Hope you have a wonderful time wherever you go, and best wishes!

Brenda here are true facts that may help you to decide. Tahiti will be far more beautiful, far more costly and hotter in December. If you like swimming Antigua has it beat. If you like looking at crystal clear lagoons and undescribably beautiful mountains, Tahiti is a hands down winner. Going to Tahiti will leave you absolutely jet-lagged for two to three days, both ways. If you love taking photos Tahiti will blow the other islands away. It'll be summer in Tahiti with very few trade winds, the weather in Antigua will be near perfect. Few families take children to the resorts, so that should not be an issue. Sincerely, I'd recommend Kauai or Maui as a happy medium that combines elements of both. Rent "Blue Hawaii" to get a feel for Kauai.
