First Sandals experience- October 2014

My fiance and I are traveling to Sandals Whitehouse 10/6-12 2014. This will be out very first vacation together seeing as it is our honeymoon and both of our first Sandals experience. We are both very excited and are itching to get there! I was wondering if anyone else out there is planning on going during this time??

No plans for October 2014 here but you never know! My wife and I are infamous for making last minute travel decisions. It certainly pays off, especially when speaking about Sandals, to plan ahead of time.

Sandals Whitehouse is our favorite place in the world currently with our 4th stay there coming up at the end of this month. You can find a wealth of knowledge here in Trip Advisor about the resort. I would imagine pretty much anything you can think to ask has been covered but feel free to let us know if you have any specific questions. You won't be sorry you booked Sandals Whitehouse!

Haha I have been trying to sort through all of these posts. I was a little hesistant about booking Whitehouse after reading the negative reviews, but after I did my research, every place I looked at had just as bad reviews. Some people are never happy! haha but we are counting down the days and can not wait to get out there!!

Jeremy G: I like your post #2. Every resort will have some level of negative reviews. If you've done your research, and chosen SWH, then you'll be just fine. One of the things I always look for regarding negative reviews is misalignment of expectations to actual experience AND could that misalignment have been avoided through research?

I have contacted Cruise and Land Travel to book my stay- has anyone had any experience with them? I want to make sure I don't get ripped off!

Jeremy, Just make sure your travel agent is an official Sandals Specialist. They have extensive training and experience and can really make your honeymoon one you will never forget.

We will also be there in October 2014, but at Sandals Royal Plantation.

Best wishes on your wedding!

Many Sandals travel agents don't charge a fee and the pricing should match what is posted on the Sandals booking engine. You shouldn't get ripped off, and hopefully, your agent will get you some super perks for your honeymoon!!! If things seem shady, find a new agent pronto! :)

You will absolutely LOVE Sandals Whitehouse! My wife and I went there October 13th through 20th, 2013 for our Honeymoon. As of now we are planning on returning Thursday October 9th through Wednesday the 15th for our 1yr Anniversary! I can't wait! Just trying to figure the best time to book the flight so we get the best deal. Once again, I promise you that you won't be sorry you booked there. It is truly amazing!

Jeremy, our first Sandals experience was on our honeymoon, also. We will be on our fourth annual honeymoon at Sandals next month. We started at Negril, went to Antigua, and St. Lucia Grande, and now returning to Jamaica at Whitehouse. We have been tempted by other resorts but every one of our Sandals trips has been near perfect. Sandals,and especially Jamaica, is our happy place. If you adopt the island pace and enjoy the people and beauty, nothing is better. We reconnect every year, both with each other and the Caribbean vibe. It's like renewing our vows for us. I hope you have a similar experience. Respect.
