DoperGuy and I are looking to go on a vacation next summer to somewhere in the Caribbean to celebrate our anniversary. Because I was nearly 7 months pregnant at the time of our wedding this summer, our only honeymoon consisted of a week down the shore. So far the only real research we’ve done has been via a travel agency. The rep there recommended the Sandals Resort Whitehouse in Jamaica.
Our ideal vacation spot would be a couples-only all-inclusive resort. Price is important, but not all-important. The travel agency rep quoted us around $4000 for a one week all-inclusive stay at the Sandals Resort, airfare included.
Is this price fair? It sounds high to me, especially after having looked around the Sandals website on my own. Should we look elsewhere or reconsider going to a travel agency altogether?
I’ve never left the country, traveled this far, or spent this much money on a vacation before, so I’m understandably nervous about the whole ordeal. Any advice about Sandals, Jamaica, the Caribbean, travel agencies, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
