Sandals Antigua or St. Lucia?

My fiancee and I are honeymooning in early August 2006. I am leaning towards an all-inclusive for the honeymoon and would like opinions on whether to go to Sandals Grande St. Lucia or Sandals Antigua. If we decide against an all-inclusive Hawaii is probably the front-runner. Also, any suggestions on getting the best price for a Sandals honeymoon are greatly appreciated. Online or travel agent? Book early or wait for deals? Thanks for your help!

My sister honeymooned at the grande in st lucia. SHE LOVED IT!!! It is well worth the money. My sister-in-law honeymooned at antigua sandals. I would book early, thats when you get the better price on the air fare, and if sandals has a better promotion you can get your money back. congrats!

I honeymooned at Sandals Antigua and loved it (we are actually returning in a few months). I think the main difference between antigua and st. lucia is that st. lucia is going to have the darker sand/lush island and antigua will have the white sand/clear water/more dry island. Although Antigua is dry, Sandals Antigua's grounds are very lush and tropical.

We enjoyed the resort mostly because it had a very laid back feel to it, and it often felt that we had this village to ourselves. A friend of mine honeymooned at Sandals Grande and did not paticularly like that the resort was so large.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Congrats!
