I have spent at least the equivalent of 2 man weeks reading through reviews on this site and I am still no closer to choosing a hotel so I thought I'd see if the good people of tripadvisor would lend a hand or a few words.
I am looking for a hotel in the Caribbean to have a weeks honeymoon. The honeymoon will be in february and as yet I havent booked anything mainly due to the fact that my future wife is Colombian and they need a visa for everywhere! I have been stung with late visa arrivals before,so I dont fancy losing my honeymoon money at the whim of an embassy. Anyway, we are expecting the CARICOM visa any day now so I am ready to book.
There seem to be alot of large all inclusives, which don't really appeal as we like to go out and try local restaurants and its good to see a bit of the country you ar evisiting. I also have a tendency to get carried away by the buffets and fall asleep by 9.30!!
We also dont want to be surrounded by people partying in the hotel, as this is supposed to be a time of romance.
So in a nutshell we are looking for somewhere small, initimate, with as many private facilities as possible and a good restaurant onsite. Access to a beach would be great. I like the idea of the cottage style resorts, but am open minded.
Any advice would be gratefully recieved!
Comfortable large bed (essential for the honeymoon..)
