Resorts to Consider in the Caribbean

Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana

When you’re vacationing in the Caribbean, you’ll find no lack of all inclusive resorts competing for your travel dollar. And the truth is, a lot of travelers swear by them. They’re not the same cookie cutter resorts as yesteryear. If you’re interested in paying one fee for all of your lodging, food, drinks, entertainment and more up front and on site, then choosing one of these top resorts will get you the best Caribbean vacation experience.

If you’re single, you’ll love the Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana. With 15 pools and nine restaurants, this resort in the Dominican Republic has the atmosphere you’re looking for complete with private pool service and a butler if you opt to pay for “Rock Star” accommodations. It also serves only top shelf liquors and every one of its 1,787 rooms comes standard with a double jacuzzi.

If  you’re looking for a family resort in the Caribbean, you will want to consider Beaches Turks and Caicos resort. This family friendly resort is located on Grace Bay Beach and boasts amenities great for all ages. There’s also a video game center for the kids, one of the largest water parks in the Caribbean and a swim-up soda bar. For the parents, there’s extensive spa services, complimentary scuba diving lessons and dining options that range from Japanese cuisine to a 1950’s diner.

But say your kids are a little older or not of the video game set— in that case you might want to try The Club, Barbados Resort & Spa. They’ve got activities for everyone: golf, sailing, water skiing and shopping excursions to nearby Bridgetown—and they’ve got exclusive “adults-only” areas accessible via shuttle.

If you are looking for a couples resort in the Caribbean, you’ll want to checkout Couples Tower Isle in Ocho Rios Jamaica. It’s been through a lot of changes since it opened in 1949, but its current iteration blends history with its heritage to create a “rat pack” ambiance.

Another resort that you may want to consider is Curtain Bluff in Antigua. This family resort has excellent food and encourages you to get out and enjoy the local sights. Their package includes deep-sea fishing, and they’ll cook what you dragged in for dinner.

When planning your vacation to the Caribbean, these are just some resorts that you can consider. The great thing about taking a Caribbean vacation though is the fact that most resorts will be great and have a majority of the things you will want.
