    Anyone have ideas for an All-Inclusive, Adults Only resort where you can have a private suite, butler, and plunge pool?

      Any of the Sandals resorts if I am thinking correctly that it is adults only - some of the ones on their website look amazing!

        Casey-

        My BF just got back from FP here is some of her feedback.
        She said "When you book in Tahiti, Saylor and I went to InterC there, and ours was nicer... more quaint - and we did a private garden bungalow (we had our own plunge pool - private... very sexy, if you know what I mean)."

        I know you were wanting to do the French Poly. area. But if you decide not to a friend of mine honeymooned in Puerto Rico last year at a resort and they had a private villa with a butler 24/7. I can get the info if you want me to.

        After Thanksgiving do you want to get together for a drink I am in panic mode a little. I can't believe only 6 more months.... It is coming fast.

        Best
        Kathy

          Kathy, I would LOVE to... Lord knows I could go for a drink right now. And yes, I would love to hear about PR. We really want to do an AI but there really aren't any in the FP so I think we're changing our minds and searching for a really nice AI instead. We need to get together soon!

            Kathy - Re: Costa Rica, I'd love your input!

            Itinerary:

            We're flying in on red-eye from LAX, then flying Sansa to Tambor (scary!) Taking the 12:30 flight but trying for stand by on the 10:30 one if we aren't delayed.

            Renting 4x4 from Budget for 6 days

            3 nights on beach in north Santa Teresa at Red Palm Villas honeymoon villa
            Costa Rica Beach front Vacation Rental - Luxury Villas & Apartments at Santa Teresa, Costa Rica at RedPalmVillas.com
            I wanted to stay at Florblanca Resort, since it is a resort, but Red Palms was about $150 less a night, and very close by to Florblanca, so I went with that. I would have liked somewhere even less pricey that RPV, but I was having a hard time finding a honeymoon worthy spot on the beach with consistently good reviews. Friends of friends told me the northern part of Santa Teresa is the nicest. Taking their word for it.

            3 nights in hills in Mal Pais at Casa Chameleon ultra villa with private plunge pool
            Costa Rica Hotel Casa Chameleon, Costa Rica Vacation, Costa Rica Travel, Costa Rica Hotels, Costa Rica Resort, Costa Rica Beaches
            (no good photos on their site, but nice photos on tripadvisor and elsewhere)

            then fly back in afternoon to San Jose

            1 night San Jose - not sure where - suggestions welcome. We're being picked up at 6 a.m. the next day, so don't want to spend too much, but I also don't want to be miserable all afternoon and evening. The pick up is only good in San Jose or near airport. Thinking Grano de Oro, not sure if Superior rooms are fine or if I need to spend an extra $30 on the deluxe.

            2 day 1 night rafting trip to Pacuare Lodge - river view suite. Part of me wanted the honeymoon suite, but couldn't justify the extra $$$ after already spending so much.

            Last night - San Jose area. Pacuare drops us off around 6 p.m. Since our flight isn't until 7p.m. the next day, I thought we should choose somewhere outside of the city so we can enjoy our last day - thinking Xandari (is it really worth the price, looks a little cheesy), Casa Bella Rita (cute, but is it honeymoon worthy for a last night?), not sure what else. If we stay at Xandari, we'll probably just hike to the waterfalls on the property and enjoy the pool or something. If we stay elsewhere, maybe we'd visit Poas, if you think it is worth it? We'll have to grab a taxi to Xandari if we go there, as Pacuare won't drop us off there. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Would like to end on a good note, but don't want to overspend.

            Re: St. Regis, they have specials on their website - maybe you should price out your dates, as well as your flights on Orbitz, and see if you can do any better than the package or if it is better? That was what I did when I was considering FP. There are tons of long-stay deals, so if you are really staying in 1 spot for 9 days, I'm sure you can get one. But don't you want to check out some other islands while you're there?

              Oh and (for Kathy) - lmk what other islands you choose for FP - I was having trouble with that myself. I had wanted a few days in Moorea for the lushness, Vahine for the small resort feel, and one of the atoll islands for the remoteness, but I didn't have time for all for the time we were planning. Maybe when we do actually go we will. Or, I guess it is always nice to leave something for a 2nd trip .

                Hey Casey - we are going to Excellence PLaya Mujeres. I dont think they have butlers but its adult only and they have rooms with pools? We are staying in a rooftop terrace? Here's a picture I found on tripadvisor

                    Are you guys looking for any particular place? Fiji has quite a few. Mexico has some. So does Caribbean, but I'm not sure where you're looking? Although I'm not totally sure about the butler except in Bali.
