Hi! :) My fiance and I are going on our honeymoon in January 2014 and we are trying to decide which resort to go to. We are considering Sandals (Royal Caribbean and Negril) and Secrets Wild Orchid. We have looked at Couples, but we aren't a fan (one reason being I like the wooden cushioned beach chairs better than plastic ones).
We are looking for a beautiful white sand beach and gorgeous water. We will be spending our days lounging on the beach so we don't want the beach to be overly packed/cluttered. The most important thing to us is the beach and room - the nightly entertainment and things to do won't be a factor in our decision. Neither of us have ever been to a resort (or out of the country) so we know the unlimited food and drinks will be amazing to us. I know it's a small detail, but I LOVE the cabana beds everywhere around the pool and beach at the Sandals resorts. I am very excited about those for some reason haha! But, Secrets Wild Orchid has much nicer looking rooms (we like the more modern room style).
Are Sandals Royal Caribbean and/or Negril outdated? Is the Secrets beach cluttered and packed since the resort is so large? ANY information about any of these resorts would be greatly appreciated. We have been going back and forth for way too long and we are ready to make a decision!!! Thanks so much!
