Ready for rest, relaxation and romance

I have probably shared that the hubs will deploy for seven months later this year. Before he goes, we want to take a vacation. We love to travel and think vacations are very important for a marriage. In August we vacationed down the California coast, and while it was an incredible trip , it wasn't relaxing. This time around, we want to go the all inclusive route and trade our sightseeing shoes for flip flops and bathing suits. We want to eat, drink, relax, and spend quality time until our hearts and bellies swell. Kinda like this...

I can feel the sun already. 

We're not quite sure where we want to travel this time around, so I'm asking for help from you, my lovely blog friends. Costa Rica seems to be calling my name, but we are open to other destinations. We've already visited The Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Aruba, and Mexico so we would like to travel somewhere new. My only requirement is that the hotel is an incredible all inclusive resort, with amazing food, beaches, rooms, and pools. Please, please, please, share all of you wonderful vacation knowledge- we need it!

PS- Don't forget to visit my girl Meg over at Life of Meg and join in on her Mingle Monday. You won't be sorry!

  1. Hey Trish! Andrew and I went to Jamaica on our honeymoon and it was amazing. We stayed at a Couples resort, it's an all inclusive brand like Sandals, but from all our research Couples sounded like a much better option for the $$. They have 4 resorts in Jamaica, two in Ocho Rios and two in Negril. We stayed at Sans Souci in Ocho Rios. We spent a lot of time researching resorts and hands down they had the best reviews and they beat the pants off Sandals. Ocho Rios' beaches are smaller but they are private, closed off to tourists and vendors, which was worth it. But if you want to go the bigger beach route, the resorts in Negril have much bigger ones. Lots of pools, one had a swim up bar, one was a "mineral pool," amazing spa (we went twice...), the excursions were great and most of them were included in the package price (unlike Sandals where you have to pay for each), the food was to die for and we were served $100 bottles of wine at dinner (I snooped on one of the brands when we got home), the rooms were great, and the staff was just amazing. I highly highly recommend it! But of course, watch out for hurricane season down there... =)
