Caribbean Recommendations

Post by blaugranamd » Fri Jan 12, 2018 6:54 pm

Wife and I are looking to snow bird for a week down to somewhere in the Caribbean in February. We had a place picked out but it booked up by the time her work got her vacation time approved. So now I'm back to looking. Would really like to know if anyone had any good experience with particular resorts. Prefer smaller, relaxing boutique hotel, beachfront, really like the idea of small beachfront bungalow/cabin style. Rustic and secluded over all-inclusive resort style. All recs appreciated though since we're running out of time and well aware we'll be shelling out for short notice and peak season. Florida Keys and coastal Central America included. Thanks! :sharebeer

It's pretty all-inclusive, but not obnoxious. In fact, it's amazing...

I was there for a week in early November and I can't recommend it enough.

Well, Petite St. Vincent has everything you want. https://www.nationalgeographiclodges.co ... lmcQjdME2w. Their claim to fame is you raise the yellow flag for service, the red flag means give us some privacy. I've sailed past it a couple of times and it's really nice but if you have to ask you probably can't...
If I am stupid I will pay.

Yeah, i saw that place and loved it, looks amazing and ticks all our boxes. I didn't see their 7 for 6 offer the first time around. Definitely the very tip of the upper end of our budget. We probably can, but will likely need to keep that one in mind for 5-6 years from now when we're in a better financial position.

We did a cave tubing excursion when we cruised to Belize a about 6 years ago. I sent them an email inquiring about availability. I had not seen this place just yet, seems very well liked on trip advisor.

For example of what we really wanted but was booked up:
