What to wear at Allegro Pineapple Resort?

Message: Hi,
We booked our honeymoon at the Pineapple resort for December. On another
post, someone mentioned that the men were required to wear pants in the
restaurants. Is there a dress code? Is it always in effect, or just for dinner?
What do people wear at this resort? Should I tell my husband to pack lots of dress pants, shirts and ties, or is semi-casual enough? Does he even have to wear pants for lunch and breakfast? What about women? Are there any length requirements for dresses and skirts? Thanks!
Bridget =)

Hi Bridget,

My husband and I honeymooned there in May of '99. Our travel agent insisted that all we would need were dressier shorts, so my husband went packed with khaki dress shorts. Being inexperienced travelers, thats all he brought. When we got there we were turned away from dinner. He had to change into the jeans he wore on the plane. It was not an exceptionally dressy resort, but they were strict on the long pants for men. All the restaurants had this rule, but I was fine in normal jean shorts (not cut offs) all week.

He also had a T-shirt on one night and was told he couldn't wear that to dinner, although we had dressed that way the whole week previous.

I found it ridiculous that some of the European women could lie on the beach topless all day, but the men had to "cover themselves" for dinner.

I highly suggest visiting Miss Mary up on the hill at the "Outhouse" its not fancy, but she is a sweet woman who cooks good barbecue. You can also get American beer up there. The view is great, the breeze is beautiful, it was the best thing about the whole resort.

Good luck, and have a wonderful honeymoon. Please feel free to email me again with any other questions!

While you're on Antigua, be sure to visit the Sunday night party at Shirley Heights. Go before sunset and enjoy the BBQ and steel drum bands. After sunset, the reggae band plays.

One word of caution: Be sure to take a cab or a tour because the roads are winding and unlit, and after a few rum punches, driving is not a good thing!

I'm so sorry Bridget, and have absolutely nothing worthwhile to contribute, but you got me tickled...
You asked:
"On another post, someone mentioned that the men were required to wear pants in the restaurants."

I certainly hope so! Otherwise could be like dining with Rich from the Survivor Show!

Have a good time, either way!

Mary is still there? She ran the "Outhouse" on our honeymoon in 1993. Such a sweet woman. At the time, my husband wore pants (khakis) at dinner. He didn't wear any ties. I often wore short skirts. There was no restriction on length. We often wore shorts at breakfast. Sometimes I wore my bathing suit with long sarong over it. Same with lunch.
