Travel Beaverton and Beyond: Destination Wedding or Honeymoon: Luxury Beach Resorts in Jamaica, Exclusive report

By Joyce Bates

Flying into Jamaica to see all the renovations at the popular Sandals Resorts, which were done over a course of a few years, was worth the long layovers from the west coast.

As we head into wedding and honeymoon season, here is a snap-shot of your next honeymoon destination or perhaps even a destination wedding for your group.

Comparing the resorts

There are definitely different personalities at each of the Sandals Resort, from 30 room boutique accommodations to the larger and very luxurious Sandals Royal Caribbean Beach Resort.

I also had an opportunity to visit the Beaches Resort for families, which is conveniently located only 5 minutes from Sandals Negril Resort. Keep in mind that this Beaches Resort is also great for destinations weddings and wedding guests that opt to stay at a less expensive resort, but hold the wedding at nearby Sandals Negril Resort.

Enjoy all-inclusive luxury vacations at Sandals Resorts and see for yourself why they offer the most romantic getaways with more quality inclusions than any other luxury beach resort. With gorgeous white-sand beaches, 5-star dining experiences, opulent accommodations, unlimited premium spirits, exciting water sports and more, it’s no wonder why so many choose Sandals Resorts as their tropical escape.
