My travel agent keeps insisting that my FH and I forget about our budget and splurge on a luxury resort to ensure we get the "honeymoon effect" from it. Of course that would be nice, but she won't even give us much info on the cheaper resorts because she's convinced we're just being stingy and will "come around eventually." I know the names of a few cheaper resorts and some general information about them, but online photos can be very deceiving and I'm worried some of these may be too good to be true.
Some of the resorts in our unfortunate price range include:
Grand Bahia (various locations)
RIU (" ")
Ocean Blue & Sand
I would greatly appreciate any comments/suggestions/experiences that anyone has had with any of these resorts, both good AND bad. I've seen several posts about nicer and more well-known resorts such as Excellence, Breathless, Iberostar, etc., but I'd love to hear about any others I may have missed!
