Hope this helps
Ocho Rios is horrible…hate that resort, no beach, road runs across the property. Montego Bay is older (still nice) and though I love Whitehouse, it is not plausible for many because there are no resorts near by if children are coming. Of all the resorts in Jamaica - Negril, Sandals is by far the nicest. Remember, this is a Caribbean resort. Rooms are tropical. No building in Negril can be taller than the highest palm tree.

Mandy - I'm getting married at Sandals Royal Caribbean and then transferring to Couples Negril for the honeymoon. That's always an idea if you're really torn between the two!
I made the decision and booked our accommodations very quickly, and in hindsight, I kind of wish I had taken more time to do research. But we got engaged and set the date for just 8 months away (which also happens to be during a holiday) so we had to make quick decisions.
I chose to split the wedding and honeymoon resorts for a few reasons...I didn't know how many guests would want to stay longer and I didn't want to end up honeymooning with my family. Also, I really liked the idea of Couples but they didn't have any wedding dates available that would work for us, so we decided to just move there after the ceremony. Sandals seems a bit more rigid in their wedding options and I'm finding they like to sneak in tons of extra charges. But there is less to plan, as they have wedding packages which appeal to many people. I don't know much about the wedding packages at Couples but I do know they have more to offer as far as what is included at the resort. Check out the message board on their website - lots of good info.

When are you going?? We leave 11/28 with a wedding date of 12/2...
