Mid-sized up-scale family resort walking distance to beach bars & restos

Jump to last reply

Looking for suggestions on a mid-size resort (nice, approx. 100 beds) on a Caribbean beach but within walking distance to a good selection of beach bars and restaurants. We will be traveling late April 2012. I will be traveling with a husband who is recovering from a broken leg this winter (so no long hills or stairs), a 14-year old who requires weaning from XBox (water sports will do the trick), and a 12-year old who is game for anything and loves to snorkel. I just want a nice beach lounger with an umbrella or palapa available at 10:00 a.m.

We have been doing the AI thing (Iberostar, Club Med, Beaches) since the kids were young, but I don't like the hustle and bustle, watered down drinks and having to get up at 6:00 a.m. to save a chair on the beach. For us it's all about the beach, pool and sun. We are adventurous foodies and like our rum drinks - with rum in them. We are willing to pay, but I do not want to feel like I have prove I belong somewhere. Don't mind operating on Caribbean time if it is worth the wait (food and cocktails).

If a locale or resort comes to mind, please let me know. Thanks, Candace
