We went on our honeymoon back in May 2011....we booked a Garden Verandah Suite, we knew we'd be out laying on the beach a lot of the time and so we weren't too worried about the view from our room and we aren't the type to pay more for a room with a view on vacation. When we got there, our room was on the "old" side I think, near The Palms...and it looked like it used to be an Atrium suite turned into a GVS. I LOVED it! I loved the privacy of having the windows, but our room had the wood slats over the windows and I just loved that look. It was a corner suite too, which I loved. Every morning we'd sit out on the patio, eat our "first" little breakfast and feel like we were sitting in the middle of the jungle, it was pretty great....then a short walk would bring us to the beach. Our room looked identical to the photo posted above, with the exception that ours had the windows under the slats and the GVS rooms have a TV on the wall across from the bed and the Atrium rooms do not have TVs.
Also, we didn't buy a honeymoon package...we did the complimentary one that included a 30 minute couples massage & complimentary champagne in the room (however, I'm not sure that was Couples provided or from our TA)...but I'd recommend booking a couples massage even if you don't do a honeymoon package.
Best advice to give...book your dinner reservations as soon as you're able (it used to be 3 days in advance)...if I could do it again, I would have tried to get into Feathers twice, though we did LemonGrass twice...I was just never as impressed with dinner at the The Palms or Patois Patio...do all the free excursions, and try to get off the resort to see Negril (one of my biggest regrets, though in my defense it rained A LOT during our entire honeymoon)...and have an amazing time!
