I have heard that Ramon's is a little on the tourist side, we are a very laid back couple on our honeymoon and want romance & party but not too touristy, But Ramon's sounds nice, i'm so confused!!! However, it sounds like to me that none of the island is too touristy, i like the cut offs & no shoes, pack light....and my husband to be wants to hear about this mud wrestling...haha.

I stayed at Ramon's in August and absolutely loved loved loved everything. I haven't really traveled that much (yet) so I don't have a whole lot to compare it with but we had an amazing time. I will never forget riding on the Ramon's golf cart through the little pathway and tropical flowers/plants. It was like something in a magazine and that was the exact moment I fell in love. LOL what a dork I am!!

Book it, forget about it. If price is not your first concern, then Ramon's will be terrific. One of the nice things is accessibility to all in-town activities. You will have a lovely "space" for your honeymoon, and when either of you, or both has a need for a walkabout there is mucho nearby stuff to do. You could do it cheaper, but probably not better:^}

you have to remember that when we (as in most people on the board) say touristy - we don't mean Cancun touristy.

Even though I have watched tourism grow on AC, I can't quite explain that it still isn't touristy like many Caribbean islands and get my idea accross to my friends.

When I tell people that it has gotten touristy, I say "but the tourist there seem to be the same people that are looking for non touristy spots" (if that makes sense). And therefore makes for a still low key, laidback atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable.

I tend to find people like myself there. People that I would choose to hang with. People that want to kickback and avoid the masses in other areas.

Just my take on it.... My opinion.

aqtpie2--luv the name! thx for the reply, i used to go to Negril, Jamaica & stay at the Lighthouse Park on the West End cliffs. Huts, outside showers/cold only, clothes optional & we would take coleman coolers full of munchies and stuff for our local friends. But unfortunately since MTV hit, it just hasn't been the same(Spring Break & all). Don't get me wrong, I love to drink & get wild with the best of them but it just has changed so much in the last ten years that i need a new place to hide.

Paluxy: Know where you stayed at in Negril. Ramon's is almost like Swept Away in Negril or almost like Grand Lido (except it's not all inclusive). If it's your honeymoon, go for it and splurge, but in my opinion, very very touristy.
