honeymoon advice

We are trying to find a place for a honeymoon. We are looking for a place that is quiet and with great beaches. We have been to the Turks and Caicos and loved it. Would like to find something similar in terms of the relaxation and great beaches. An all inclusive resort would be great also. If anyone has any suggestions we would love to hear them. Thanks

The beaches in Anguilla are incomparable (there are 33 of them) & the island could not be quieter (no casinos, cruise ships, shopping districts). There are no all inclusives, however, but there are 80+ fabulous restaurants in a very wide price range. Check out www.news.ai -- at the top of the opening page, you'll find links to the beaches & hotels. For honeymoons, I'd recommend Cap Juluca (high-end) or Frangipani (mid-range).

There use to be a girl who posted on here who went to Sandals in Antigua. She really liked it a lot and recommended it quite highly. That being said, I was on that beach recently. It is a lovely beach, and I saw the Sandals establishiment. It also looks very nice. It's located on Dickensons Bay. I have also been to T&C. I would say it was right up there with T&C. Also (high end) Sandy Lane in Barbados. It looked like a fabulous place. In Mexico The Hideway in PDC is AI and has good food. Some of this depends on your budget. Congratulations and Good luck.

I honeymooned at Sandals Antigua and we really enjoyed it. The resort is very lush and tropical and well kept. The beach is large and beautiful. We didn't have any problems with service, our room was nice and kept very clean. The food was good, although nothing spectacular. It was a very laid back atmosphere but they offered plenty to do if looking for a little action. We enjoyed the watersports and the nightly entertainment was nice.

I would not pay full price for this resort, but with the 35% discount they are offering, I found it worth it. It all depends on what you are looking to spend, because if I could have afforded it Jumby Bay would have been my choice. It is located on a private island off the shore of Antigua and is a luxury all inclusive. It is not adult only and I have read that it doesn't offer much in the nightly entertainment department. Other than that, I've heard it is wonderful.

I also second the vote for Cap Juluca, if you can afford it. Again, it's all in what you're looking to spend. SA was great for the price we paid. Congrats and good luck!

I think perhaps you would enjoy Sandals Antigua as well. It is on one of the island's best beaches. They will take you out snorkeling to some reefs and then to another stop to go shelling. The bartenders are great and if you want something more than a Peppermint Schnapps, they will make anything according to your directions if they don't know how to make it. Food was good, although the desserts were a little disappointing. They have a number of choices, but brownies, for instance, will not be as sweet as you make at home. Additionally, they will organize tours of all kinds. These would be extra. A tour of the island with a taxi is a very popular thing to do as a half day tour through the rain forest and around 1/2 of the island. It lasts about 4-5 hours and cost us somewhere around $50-70. I think they may have had catamarans that include lunch and drinks, but I'm not sure.

tmoose, if you are still looking try and give Bermuda a thought for your Honeymoon. They have an all inclusive called The Harmony Club, or many great beach resorts that have experience with weddings, for more info try www.bermudatourism.com

I hope this helps,
