    Was looking at some really nice "all inclusive" resorts in the Bahamas and Jamaica. I have never been to either place and was looking for some pointers, opinions, etc. would be for about 6 days.
    Really we just wanna go to a place where we don't have to do anything but be served and just lay around and do nothing but spend time together.
    Has anyone here been to either place? Thank you for any input and advice.

    Howard related because he is always on vacation.

    The best advise I can give you is to pick a place that is relatively new/ newly renovated.
    These all inclusive places tend to get the shit beaten out of them by people - so they can be pretty shabby.
    Having said that, I went to one in Mexico with my sister that had just opened and it was fabulous. Everything was new, clean and the staff was eager to please. (Drinks were included too!)
    I have a friend who went 2 yrs later & it was a completely different story.
    Whatever place you choose, read the reviews on Trip Advisor, and be sure to look at ALL the traveler's photos (not the ones the hotel posts - those are useless)
    Good luck !!!!!

    Not a big AI guy, but almost a necessity in those two places.
    My surgeon goes to a place in Jamaica called Strawberry Fields that's supposed to be amazing. It's more rural, but safe and not terribly expensive. Might want to google that one, it looks gorgeous.
    Good luck on your search!

    I've never been to either. But my mother has been to both and loves Jamaica. My mommy *really* likes the wine though, so take this with a grain of salt.

    Avoid AI places in the Bahamas: Beaches, Sandals... ( They are shitty rip offs, can do better in non A/I resorts in the area) . Jamaica A/I is your best bet. Fly into Negril. Several options between the airport futher out to Runaway Bay to Ocho Rios. As stated above newer is better. Trip Advisor is your friend.

    That's probably the least awful thing they could bring home.

    This. If all you are going to do is 90% lounge around the resort...pick the newest one in whatever place is running deals and cheap flights. :hat:

    Padame is the lucky princess?

    If you're staying in a resort 100% if the time, you'd probably do best in Dominican Republic.....Or any of the newer places. Resorts are safe and the water is always blue down at any of these islands

    Personally, I try to go to places that I can go anywhere I want...I go nuts sitting in a resort .Jamaica is not one of those places :jj:
