Sandals is an all-inclusive couples only resort for adults. In other words, it's heaven! We spent 7 days at the Dunn's River resort for our honeymoon. You have the option of staying at the resort or going on selected excursions. We only left the resort once to travel to Dunn's River Falls. It's a waterfall that you climb then end in a natural spring. Other than that, we spent our days relaxing in the pool, paddling our raft up to the in-pool bar, and eating and drinking our money's worth.
This resort has a few restaurants to choose from. Our favorite was the Japanese hibachi style, Kimonos. But the Italian, Il Capitano, came in a very close second. The resort also has special event buffets. We dressed up one night in Toga's and went to an international buffet. There were tables featuring food from France, Italy, and of course, the Caribbean. The dessert table was so big, I took pictures of it.
There are many activities there other than eating. Many are included, such as kayaking, snorkeling, and hobie cats. There is golf course nearby, but my husband was smart enough to know not to bring his golf clubs on his honeymoon. The resort also has dancing lessons and games, like the Newlywed Game (which we won!). The spa services are an extra charge.
One thing I really loved about Sandals is it is all-inclusive. The workers can not take a tip for services, so you only need to worry about money to spend on souvenirs. Which brings me to my only complaint. Outside the gates of the resort, there were groups of people trying to get you to leave the resort to see their shops. For the most part, they were far away but if you got close to a gate all you could hear was the sound of begging and the smell of Jamaica's finest smokes. The bus ride to the resort was also a bit scary, but I've tried to block that out because it was a necessary evil to get to the vacation of a lifetime.
If anyone is looking for a great place to relax, have fun, and get away from it all (including your own kids), I recommend the Sandals resorts.
