Best Place for Family of Four With Good Snorkeling, Weather and Beaches

Jump to last reply

We are two adults and two kids (girl, 7 and boy, 9) planning a trip to the Caribbean in March of 1999. We are only going for one week and so would like to find an island and a hotel that has as many of the following criteria as possible:

1. 250 rooms or less (for a more intimate and personal feel)
2. Some activities for kids so Mom and Dad can have a little time to themselves
3. Oceanview or beachfront accommodation, with at least two double beds. Better even would be a separate room with pull out couch or bed.
4. Decent food (all inclusive or not)
5. Nice white sand beach
6. Snorkeling right of the shore with good visibility and lots of fish, maybe reefs too.
7. Relatively calm waters (not big waves)
8. Some sights to see on the island (natural wonders or towns)
9. Airport less than one hour drive from hotel.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
