The Best Hotels for a Honeymoon in 2014

The honeymoon is supposed to be one of the romantic times in a couple’s lives.  A relaxing getaway after several months of stressful wedding planning, a time to get away with the one you love to spend a few days just with each other. No matter where you want to spend your honeymoon–whether on the beach of an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean with a drink in your hand or ripping up the slopes while skiing in the Alps–one of the most vital points in having a successful couples getaway is the hotel you stay in.  What if that 5-star luxury hotel in Manhattan ends up really being a roach motel in the Bronx?  The romantic trip you dreamed of can quickly turn into a nightmare if the hotel you choose doesn’t live up to your expectations.  

So, here we give you the best hotels for a honeymoon–in all different kinds of destinations.
