I’m looking for a getaway with my boyfriend in Jamaica. Do you have some ideas?
Jamaica’s a great destination for romantics; you’ll find a huge number of romantic resorts from which to choose. Some factors to consider:
Do you have limited time? If your trip will just be three or four nights, minimize your travel time by booking a resort close to Montego Bay, the city into which your flight will arrive. Other resort areas are close to two hours from Montego Bay which will cut back on your beach time!
Are you watching your budget? All-inclusives can be a great way to go so you know how much to budget for the trip…no surprises in terms of transfers, tips, drinks, etc. Some of the top all-inclusive resort chains in Jamaica are Sandals (couples only), SuperClubs (check out the Breezes properties), and Couples (also couples only). Riu also has very reasonable all-inclusives on the island (although they also attract many families.)
Do we want a couples-only or adults-only resort? Good couples only choices are Sandals (many locations on the island; check out Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay for luxury, Sandals Montego Bay for the absolute closest location to the airport, or Sandals Inn for the lowest prices) and Couples (two locations each in Ocho Rios and Negril.) Adults-only choices include the always popular, somewhat wild Hedonism II and III (II is in Negril and is on a great beach; III is in Runaway Bay east of Montego Bay and is newer.)
