any island, which resort?

Jump to last reply

So I began my research trying to decide what island first with our 3k-3500 budget. I received many great responses, but I am still left unsure. So let me try another angle. Which resort, all inclusive hopefully, would you suggest with a budget like ours? Here is my resort wish list:
-relatively small, like 150 and less rooms.
No high rises please. I dont imagine riding down an elevator 15 floors and walking a quarter mile just to get to the beach screams relaxation.
-on the beach
-rooms that are pretty contemporary, no tacky floral bedspreads. I mean its not a dealbreaker, I just dont want to think "ugh" when I walk in the room.
-very good staff and customer service
-adults only is ideal, but I can put up with a few ankle biters if I have to.


I guess id just love to have another resort experience like we did at couples sans souci. They were so nice and attentive, clean, good food, free stocked mini bar, huge room, felt very secluded, no kids, no vendors harrassing us, it was so great. And I believe we paid like $3200 for airfare and accomodations for 7 days. We did go in July, so thats probably why it was so affordable.

Anywhere like that?
