I would stay at Victoria House. In my opinion it is the most luxurious hotel on the south end of the island and very much a honeymoon place. We stayed there. We saw Captain Morgans which was nice also but I do not think at the same level as Victoria House

In the low season Cap't Morgans is not expensive at all ($159/nt). Does go up to $249 in high season but that's no more than a lot of the high end places.
Any of the above mentioned places would be good for a honeymoon. Personally I recommend Victoria House as well if it's in your price range. Corona del Mar would be the lower priced end of the places you mentioned but is nice as well, and has the "open bar" advantage. There are many, many options - depends on what type atmosphere and amenities you are looking for.
We are thinking about doing 3 or 4 nights at one place and the last 3 at the other. So we can chose two places to stay. We are probably going to start out at Captain Morgan's (I like the thatched roof cabanas). We would like to relax the first day or two and then spend the rest of the time snorkeling/taking diving classes and possibly go to some Mayan ruins or do some cave tubing. Has anyone ever stayed at Ramon's or Victoria House? Or are there any other hotels you would suggest in that area? Thanks!!

Just another opinion... we stayed at Ramons in May, and it was absolutely wonderful! We also went to the Victoria House for dinner, and it was THE most beautiful place but far from the downtown shopping/restaurant area. I felt so pampered and catered to at Ramons, that I just HAD to give it a plug... honestly, I doubt there is a really *bad* place to stay in AC; when you're in paradise everything is good! Have fun, let us know how it goes!

Wes, I don't recommend Victoria House to you but to a honeymooning couple, yes.
Why don't you consider getting yourself some less expensive accommodations and then grabbing a water taxi up to Capt. Morgan's one afternoon and hanging around there for a few hours. That may satisfy your "sweet tooth", so to speak, without emptying your wallet.

I stayed a Ramons in March and just got back from there Monday. Ramons has a very jungle garden feel to it where VH is a beautifully manicured colonial looking property. VH is a bit out of the way and doesn’t have that nice of a beachfront. Also the properties next to VH are trashy looking. I’ve been to Captain Morgans a few times and found it kind of plain and uninteresting. I you’re looking up north, Belizean Shores looks pretty nice. Plus they have a great pool with a swim up bar. Check out my Ramons pics (from March trip).

Cap't Morgans is $159 per cabana (low season), not per person.
Lynn - Personally I would not recommend splitting the trip up into 2 hotels on AC. It would basically be the same experience with a few miles and "hotel ambiance" difference. If you want to split up the trip why not part on AC and part on the mainland (which is where you will be going for the ruins & cave tubing anyhow)? Or if you want all beach accommodations, how about a few nights on AC and a few nights in Placencia or Hopkins/Dangriga area? There are some ruins near Placencia/Hopkins and the cave tubing can be done as a day trip from either place.
