Puerto Rico Honeymoon!

We really thought that Hawaii would be a great place to Honeymoon - but, after talking to many people about this... the general consensus was that - more time would be necessary for Hawaii! We only have one week and travel to and from Hawaii would take up two of the seven days. So, if we weren't going to Hawaii - then where would we go?

There were several issues that would help in this decision. First, since we had to make this happen fairly quickly - the location couldn't require a passport. I have to get mine renewed and he doesn't have one. We wanted a beach, warm weather and the east coast was out. I've spent my entire life up and down the east coast beaches - which I love, but I was ready for something a little different. Second, we didn't want to spend to much time getting to and from the location. Last - we didn't want to spend a fortune. With this in mind - we talked to a lot of friends and the consensus was Puerto Rico.

I got online, did my due diligence and found the best deal at We found non-stop flights each way - and only 3 and a half hours to Puerto Rico! We found a great looking 4 and a half star resort - Gran Melia Puerto Rico. All guestrooms at Gran MeliĆ” Puerto Rico are luxurious suites offering separate seating areas, terraces or balconies and bathrooms with full-sized marble baths. This is a description of the room/service:

Garden View Royal Service Junior Suite features include:

  • Direct line telephone with Voicemail
  • Free high-speed Internet access
  • Cable TV with Pay-Per-View and video games
  • Butler services
  • In-room minibar
  • Pillow menu
  • Individual air conditioning and ceiling fan
  • Full bathroom with vanity mirror and bath amenities
  • In-room safe deposit box
  • Daily newspaper delivery upon request
  • Coffeemaker and fresh morning coffee delivery service
  • Outdoor shower
  • Plunge pool
It sounds good to me!

Sounds like a great place, but more important a great time. I was down at a Riu resort in Puerto Plata DR, a great getaway and relax resort. Lots od Canadians & Europeans. Also saw 3 weddings in a 4 day time span. Something about the Caribbean that brings out the romance. Congrats!
