Our top pick for a honeymoon at Sandals is Sandals Grenada. The resort is located on the southwestern tip of the island and is known for its stunning scenery, luxurious amenities, and exceptional service.
The resort is situated on the picturesque Pink Gin Beach, a beautiful stretch of soft, pink-tinted sand and clear blue waters, providing a perfect backdrop for relaxation and water activities. The beach is surrounded by a rock retaining wall which provides shelter for you and the fish, making it perfect for snorkeling or going for a swim.
Sandals Grenada boasts ten unique dining options, including fine dining restaurants, casual beachside grills, and international cuisine. Guests can savor a variety of flavors and culinary experiences during their stay.
Sandals Royal Plantation
Sandals Royal Plantation is the smallest Sandals Resorts and every one of the suites includes all-butler service. This makes it the perfect Sandals Resort for couples looking for relax and unwind with amazing service.
The resort boasts its own private stretch of beach, providing a secluded and tranquil setting for guests to relax and enjoy the Caribbean sun. You can expect quick service from either the servers at the beachside bar or from your butler throughout the day. Expect your drinks to stay filled and to have food brought to you, unless you want to go to one of the restaurants for dinner.
There are 5 restaurants on-site, and guests at Sandals Royal Plantation have the opportunity to go to the nearby Sandals Ochi for additional restaurants and a more lively atmosphere.
Sandals Royal Caribbean
Within Jamaica, Sandals Royal Caribbean is an ideal honeymoon destination. The resort is smaller and quieter than other Sandals Resorts. Some key features we love about the resort are how close it is to the airport, that you can go to Sandals Montego Bay quickly and easily for additional restaurants, beaches, pools, and activities, and that there is a private island.
Sandals Royal Caribbean offers a unique and luxurious experience for couples seeking a romantic Caribbean getaway perfect for a honeymoon and if you really want to splurge you can stay at one of the overwater bungalows.
Sandals Negril is located on the western coast of Jamaica in the town of Negril. Renowned for its stunning beachfront location, vibrant sunsets, and laid-back atmosphere, Sandals Negril is a popular choice for honeymooners.
The resort offers a variety of luxurious accommodations, ranging from beachfront rooms and suites to extravagant swim-up suites and beachfront butler villas and almost all rooms are beachfront.
The resort is on the quieter side and we enjoyed the smaller pools that allowed for great interaction with other guests.
Sandals Grande Antigua is located on the beautiful island of Antigua in the Caribbean. Like any Sandals Resort it is highly regarded for its luxurious accommodations, stunning beaches, and romantic ambiance, making it an ideal choice for honeymooners and couples seeking a memorable vacation.
The resort is situated on Antigua’s famous Dickenson Bay offering soft white sand and crystal-clear waters. This provides guests with ample space to relax, swim, and enjoy water sports. The all-inclusive dining options include 11 specialty restaurants with diverse cuisines from around the world.
We loved the pools at Sandals Antigua. It was the only Sandals Resort we visited with lots of floats available and a variety of pools. The large main pool was perfect for us with music that wasn’t too loud but was fun and it isn’t too far from the beach either. There are other pools that are very secluded and quiet if that is what you prefer for your honeymoon.
We also loved the level of service at Sandals Grande Antigua. All Sandals Resorts strive to provide great service, but in Antigua they seemed even better prepared to anticipate your needs.
The only cons to Sandals Grande Antigua are the beach is public so you will have vendors coming by and the rooms are a bit out dated. The good news is that makes the resort a great value until they modernize the rooms.
Sandals Regency La Toc
Sandals Regency La Toc is located on the stunning island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean. Sandals La Toc is situated on a picturesque crescent-shaped beach, offering breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea. The lush tropical surroundings and serene atmosphere make it a perfect escape for couples.
The resort is very spread out and has a few unique different areas. The Sunset Bluff area has amazing views of the sunset, while the other side of the resort is more flat where the larger pool and beach area are. The service was incredible and the food was very good. You can also go to Sandals Grande St Lucian for the day if you want more variety.
We loved the beach including the water temperature and the service while we were relaxing on the beach, but some people do not love the amount of current and waves that happen on the beach. The only other con is it takes around 90 minutes to arrive from the airport.
Sandals Grande St Lucian
Sandals Grande St. Lucian is located on the northern coast of the beautiful island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean. Set against the backdrop of the stunning Rodney Bay and surrounded by lush mountains, Sandals Grande St. Lucian offers a picturesque and romantic setting for couples looking to experience a tropical paradise.
This is where you are going to get that picturesque clear, calm, blue Caribbean water. The beach is pretty long so you can hang out by the pool where it feels like a beach party or you can go closer to the overwater bungalows where things are quieter.
Guests can enjoy a range of water sports, such as snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, and scuba diving (for certified divers). The resort’s location on a calm bay makes it ideal for water-based activities like wakeboarding or water skiing.
For a honeymoon splurge, consider staying at one of the overwater bungalows.
Sandals Dunn’s River
We listed this one last for one reason only, we haven’t personally visited. But do not worry, we will be updating this post later this year once we do visit the resort.
However, Sandals Dunn’s River is the newest Sandals Resort. The resort was purchased and completely reimagined and opened in May of 2023.
There are resort has 12 unique dining experiences with Latin Fusion, Sushi, Greek, Asian, and much more at the buffet and room service.
Sandals Dunn’s River introduces the first-ever Coyaba Sky Rondovals. These private, round villas have access to the river pool, an oversized private swim-up pool, and a terrace that takes up the entire roof. You’ll also find spacious swim-up suites that overlook the ocean; Swim-Up Rondoval Suites, beachfront suites; oceanview suites; and suites that overlook Jamaica’s lush mountains—all with oversized soaking tubs on private balconies.
One unique feature at Sandals Dunn’s River is the Dunn’s Rum Club where authentic Jamaican craft cocktails and expertly mixed with locally sourced ingredients alongside snacks and small plates.
