Hello - I am planning my honeymoon in May 2008 at the Sandals Antigua Grande and am trying to decide between the Honeymoon Oceanview Suite (HOS) vs. something in the newer MV side? From what I see the pros of the HOS are: 1) Closer to the beach, 2) more privacy & nicer gardens, 3) includes the concierge & Butler 24 hr room service.
Where the cons of the HOS are: 1) Not all rooms face the ocean and there is no guarantee you will be in the ocean facing 711-714 block, 2) Rooms are a little outdated and older for the price, 3) I am seeing more dissapointment/complaints in other forums about this area.
For the same cost, I could get a grande luxe St. Tropez room in the MV and pretty much be guaranteed a beautiful room, but be without the butler services, privacy and steps to the beach.
Can anybody shed any light on these options and criteria and provide and insight or recomendations? It would be much appreciated. :)
