Sorry, not a TS question but my niece and fiancé are planning a honeymoon for next April 2022 and are thinking of Antigua at an AI resort on Antigua. Does anyone know anything about this one Hammock Cove? Hawaii is too expensive for them (they live in Austin) and like the AI idea for a honeymoon.

Any advice about the island or that resort?

We loved Antigua---so many butterflies!--but we also stayed in a timeshare on an II exchange, so I don't have any advice about AI.

Other useful things about the island--we ended up hiring a driver for the week (very inexpensive) and that was great. He was great at helping us plan each day's activities/where we'd want to go, and then would pick us up and drop us off as needed. Every week, on a given day, there is a big tourist bash that everyone goes to (not sure if this still happens during COVID;) We saw it as the locals getting the rest of their island back for at least one evening a week, LOL. Lots of historical sites to explore, and different beaches. Try to get onto a sailing vessel of some kind. Open up an offshore bank account. ;) (LOL, we consider Antigua a "sunny place for shady people.")
You will definitely need to be on island time to do well.
