This book has provided me with a fantastic starting point for honeymoon-planning... As someone who has had a fairly extensive and diversified travel "portfolio", I have found this book to be very helpful in providing me with ideas for new and exotic places to visit. It's not packed with too much information, but gives enough of an overview to let you know whether you would like to pursue more details or if the hotel is not quite what you are looking for... One drawback: not a great book if you are looking for a low-budget vacation, as most of the hotels included in it are quite pricey... If you are looking for a more economical vacation, I would recommend something like "Hip Hotels: Budget".
This book seems like a collection of glossy travel brochures. There is little information given for comparison (e.g. trying to decide which region to go to) and a lot of the text is repeated verbatim for many of the resorts. The 'useful information' provided for each resort includes things such as "the gift shop has an excellent collection of souvenir t-shirts." I really doubt anyone is choosing their wedding/honeymoon destination based on this. However, my biggest problem with this book is that it seems to favor certain resort chains, which makes me question its objectivity. Specifically, 2 Sheraton resorts that we have visited in Hawaii on previous vacations were given superb reviews. In our experience, they were a little run-down (with the rooms in sore need of renovation) and had below average facilities (obviously a beautiful natural setting, but disappointing swimming pools, etc). Fine for a four-day getaway, but I would have been very disappointed had I read this review and gone there for my honeymoon or wedding. This makes me question the accuracy of the other writeups in the book.
I bought this book hoping that it would help me to pick a honeymoon place around the world. Even though it has a lot of good information it lacks at variety of places in terms of price. If you are looking to spend 600 to 3000 a night for your honeymoon, this book has it all.but if you want to explore more affordable places , this book is NOT your guide.
