My wife and I went on a "delayed" honeymoon. Had a great time. Was worried that the place would be overrun with kids since it was a "Beaches" instead of a Sandals. But not a problem. Stayed in a suite in the Key West Village. The people were amazing. Friendliest staff I've ever seen. Drinks were good. Surprised to find good beers (Guiness, Bass, Newcastle) at the English Pub, The Crickateer. Spent a lot of time at that place. Trivia. Karaoke. Bingo.
The pool bars were great. Was never far from a rum punch. The water is as clear as they say. Nice covered chases.
There are lots of free activities that I wish we'd have known about ahead of time; snorkel trips, catamarans, water bikes. There was also a Xbox 360 in our room which would have been good to know. Not that I was in the room a lot but I'd have brought a couple of games.
Food was good but not great. Three or four of the restaurants are quite a bit better than the others. Strangely enough they did a good job with the steaks but I was disappointed in the seafood. It was okay. I just had dreams of lots of fresh stuff. House wine was included but you had to pay extra for good stuff. And they did have some pretty good wines for purchase, Caymus, Hess, etc.
We did a couples massage that we enjoyed very much. But most of the time we just ate, laid by the beach, drank, got in the pool then ate some more. It was a very, very enjoyable trip.
For an all-inclusive I was surprised that wi-fi wasn't included. It was $15/day. Which we did once just to get in touch with the kids.
The place was expensive but I'd do it again. I just probably wouldn't get the suite unless it was a special anniversary or something.
Went into town a few times, too. Everything there was expensive. It sure wasn't like Jamaica or Mexico. Also, you can't bring conch shells back in your carry-on luggage but you can pack them in your checked bags.
