      We had our hearts set on Vieques, specifically The Martineau Bay because we found out that they were being taken over by Starwood and converted to a W Hotel Retreat & Spa. Unfortunately, they are behind schedule and are now anticipating the renovation to be completed in Dec 2008 or early 2009 so that fell apart. We then looked at The Inn on the Blue Horizon which is awesome but they only have 10 rooms and we don't want our guests staying at a bunch of different places. We also looked at Hix Island House and Bravo Beach and weren't confident in their service and quality b/c of mixed reviews.

      As for mainland P.R. - we looked at
      El Convento
      Ritz Carlton
      El Conquistator
      Hotel El San Juan
      Villa Montana
      Gran Melia

      None of them were really a good fit for a number of reasons including the fact that San Juan is a port city and many of the resorts are not that private on the beach meaning you can see a lot of lights at night and it is pretty developed. Also we are not big partiers and prefer a more laid back luxurious environment. So many of the resorts have such mixed reviews. Over all, the main reason is that our date (9/5/0 is not negotiable and it is hurricane season - we are really worried about that and the stress of planning an outdoor event during the most volatile weather season down there.

      I am still worried about Hawaii b/c it is so far but the place is such a good fit and really has all the qualities we were looking for so we are going to suck up the distance.

      If you have any specific questions about any one of them, PM me!
