Honeymoon July 2012-All Inclusive Resorts

Narrowed it down to Bora Bora, Punta Cana, St. Lucia.

Definetly want an all inclusive resort. Looked at sandals, secrets.

Want a mix of luxury (ie - private pool suite) and party (ie: go out to drink/party on resort)

cost is a factor but we understand its once in a lifetime so anything "luxurious" would be great (ie: nice rooms w/ concierge/private pool etc etc). Budget is around 5K. Would like it to be easy to fly to from chicago (ie: dont wanna spend over night accomodations somewhere or red eye flights)

dont want senior citizens or college kids or just a bad experience.

want the most bang for our buck

I'm looking for something simalar! I'm flying from Ireland though. We're looking at the Seychelles / Fiji / French polynisia

Out of those 3 options Bora Bora would be my top choice. It looks amazing plus you're near guarenteed the weather. From what I understand St. Lucia can be prone to heavy showers in July. Bora Bora might be a bit quiet if you are looking a party atmosphere. Would you consider europe? Italy / South of France / Spain. It'll be buzzing in July!

Bora Bora - not possible on your $5K budget, so definitely look to the Caribbean. It's also not really a "party" destination.

If you can afford Bora Bora then that would be my first choice. Second would be St. Lucia but I would suggest looking at Jalousie Plantation's least expensive rooms -- come with heated pool, butler service, wonderful bar for evening drinks and fun, great food and a setting to die for -- instead of Sandals and the last choice would be Punta Cana.
