Caribbean vacation - destination advice?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 4 night vacation in June to the Caribbean. We're a little overwhelmed with all the choices, so I was hoping the Fodorites might give us some advice.

We're looking for an upscale resort, with nice, preferably oceanfront rooms. Relatively easy to get to from DC. My priority is a nice, relaxing beach and good food; my husband's main request is to play golf at least once. We're not averse to an all inclusive, but not bound to it either - I don't think we tend to eat/drink enough to make it necessary, plus this is a babymoon/30th birthday trip, so it'll be more low-key than usual. Besides golf, a good spa would be nice, and possibly kayaking or bike riding, but our main focus is a relaxing beach vacation. Price wise, we're looking for something around $400-500 a night if all inclusive, $350 or so if not. I'd prefer to keep our airfare (for both) around $1500.

We tend to prefer smaller resorts - we did Belize/Guatemala for our honeymoon (Turtle Bay, Blancaneaux Lodge and La Lancha) and loved it; recently tried the El Dorado Maroma in Riviera Maya and thought it was okay size-wise, but the food was a bit lacking.

Thus far, I'm looking at Galley Bay in Antigua, but I don't think Antigua's golf is the best. I looked at Cap Juluca in Anguilla, but it seems a bit hard to get to (both of these have deals on Jetsetter, so they fall in our price range). I'm considering Jamaica - maybe Round Hill - since golf is supposed to be good, but can't seem to pull the trigger.

Any thoughts or suggestions outside of these are welcome - time is flying so I have to make a decision soon!
