Any travel agents on the board?

I'm looking to book a Sandals vacation for my honeymoon and wanted to know if it was cheaper to go through a travel agent, or to book it myself online.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Anyone have any opinions about what Sandals resorts to hit up?

Are you going to get a better price from the farmer or from the grocery store?

Don't take the farmer's first price, either. Negotiate.

My mother is b/f with a travel agent who pretty much whores Sandals.

Mom keeps sending me there for some kind of cheap deal when I travel but i've always found something better myself (same place, cheaper online.)

Don't bother. Seems like the net has pretty much cut out the middle man...

We stayed at Ocho Rios (Jamaica) for our honeymoon. Booked for a week appx. 4 months in advance. Booked it myself. It was a little over 3K, IIRC. (2006).

We went to the Sandals in Negril, Jamaica and I would highly receommend it.

One thing that was great was they offered scuba diving. We spent one morning in a pool learning how to do it, then a few days later went out on a boat and got to scuba dive at a reef. It was awesome. And it was included in the "all-inclusive".

Another thing, the resort butts up to a Hedonism resort, so if you want to do some nude sunbathing, or see naked people, it's just through a gate. Of course, the thing about nude beaches is they never contain people you want to see naked, and my wife could do nothing but point and laugh at the old men's peckers.

As for best price, we used an agent, but that was 7 years ago.

I don't know. I checked with a travel agent for a trip to Hawaii. The prices she could get me for the same hotel/airfare/car saved me about $700 verse booking myself online.

IMO if strickly want price there is no difference between doing it yourself and a travel agent except for the travel agent fee. Now if you are looking for perks ie upgrades, special items or piece of mind if something goes wrong and want to have someone there to help you then go with a travel agent.

We've been to two - Sandals Montego Bay and Beaches Negril. Montego Bay is nice, but it is like literally 100 yards from the airport, so you have to deal with the roar of planes coming and going. We took our daughter to Beaches, and it was super nice. I've heard good things about Ocho Rios, as well.

The thing about Sandals is that they bill it as a romantic getaway for couples, but the two times we've been down there, it was more like groups of people partying their asses off. It was cool, though; nobody was acting like an asshole.

If you go to Negril, you have to go to Rick's Cafe and cliff jump.

I always thought "Couples" was the Sandals brand resort that was supposed to be more about romance. "Sandals" was just an adults only resort, and "Beaches" was the family resort.

And I agree about going to Rick's Sunset Cafe. Maybe the only thing outside of the resort that was worth it for me. We sat at a table on a cliff overlooking the ocean, watching the sunset while dolphins jumped in the water. It was like a freaking postcard.
