Looking for a good resort for a Group of friends

Jump to last reply

Hello all.

My girlfriend and I have been researching some resorts for our 3rd trip down south to the Caribbean. We have been twice now, to Cuba and DR, and usually have travelled alone
This year, we are bringing 2 of my single friends.
We are somewhat picky, and don't want to go back to Cuba or DR, want to try something new.

We have been looking at St Lucia and Antigua, and possibly Jamaica.

Here is what we want the resort to have and maybe you guys might have some suggestions for us :
- Nice beach and water
- Swim-up bar is a must
- On-site bars that are open until at least 1am and preferably once that are outdoors (don't want to be forced to be in the disco every night)
- Good Food/restaurant options
- A resort that offers some excursions - snorkelling, sight seeing etc.
- a resort that isn't flooded with families and little kids

We are currently looking at:

Coconut Bay Resort and Spa - st lucia
Smugglers cove Resort - St lucia

Coconut bay seems pretty good, but the beach looks kind of crappy and have read many reviews stating its not great for swimming

With so many options in Jamaica, we don't even know where to start.

Any help/suggestions/experiences would be greatly appreciated
