On track to honeymoon to Europe in May. Plan to use all the Marriott & United points from 5 years in consulting. What are the best 3-5 locations for Marriott in Europe in may? I see Santorini is already booked solid. Mallorca? Venice?

What do you want to do on your honeymoon? Venice is pretty boring, honestly.

We were thinking Europe and were planning Mallorca. What about the Al Maha in Dubai?

Stayed at a gorgeous hotel in Barcelona once. The Cotton House. It was from their Autograph Collection.

Loved the st Regis in Florence if you’re thinking Italy.

Venice is overcrowded. Mallorca overrun with German and English drunk tourists! I can recommend mMadrid, San Sebastián, Salamanca, Burgos in Spain. Love Utrecht and Amsterdam, Copenhagen, French Jura and Brittany (those latter two are beyond beautiful and far from the tourist crowds). Super easy to get around by train from Spain, France, Netherlands I am sure most of these places have Marriotts that are nice

Not overcrowded during Covid

W Verbier for Mountains, Domus Chania in Crete or the Westin costa navarino for Beach. You can also do the Renaissance in split as a jumping off point to to hvar for a couple of days if you want to do more party. If you’re after unique experiences, check out the Bordeaux area which chateaus have Marriott redemption. I stayed at a SLH one though Hyatt which was truly beautiful

And on the United points - if it’s at all within reach see if you can score first class awards on Lufthansa or Swiss. The service in Frankfurt or Zurich is divine. Your evening picked up at the plane in a Porsche

Porti (portugal) or Swiss Alps
