My fiancee and I are getting married in June, and we've decided on the Caribbean for our honeymoon. Currently I'm looking at spending 3-4 nights at Atlantis in Nassau (which will allow me to use my considerable Marriott points) and then 3-4 nights at an all-inclusive resort.
I was looking at Sandals Royal Bahamian (which looks awesome of course), but I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for comparable places that are a little less expensive. I still want to make sure we're getting the full all inclusive experience (e.g. not just having one buffet included or something), but trying to avoid paying upwards of $900 a night.
Any more mid-tier resorts in the Bahamas that you'd recommend?
Alternatively, we'd be open to going to another Caribbean Island, but I'd like to go somewhere we can stay at a Marriott property for at least part of our stay (for budget reasons). I know Aruba, Curacao, Barbados and maybe a few other islands have Marriott properties.
We're going to be paying for our flights with our Delta miles, like I mentioned I have almost 200k Marriott points, and then I have about $1500 in Chase points which I can use for the resort, and am willing to spend a couple thousand more on top of all that if necessary.
Would also welcome any and all other advice anyone has! Thanks in advance!
