Recommendations island, hotel...

Jump to last reply

Hi I have done so much reading about all of the islands and read so many good and bad reviews that I'm lost on what to do now. I'd really like your recommendations on what island,  hotel or resort we should choose. 

Budget: <$5,000 

1.) We're not interested in a "night life", shopping or gambling.

2.) We're really looking for a relaxing vacation. We have no problem hanging on a beach all day. 

3.) Snorkeling is important, preferably right off the beach but walking distance is good.

4.) We really enjoy going to different restraints. This is not huge but nice. 

5.) We'd like to do a little exploring. We need to feel comfortable wondering around the area we're staying.

6.) We'd like to our place to be on the beach. And hearing the ocean in our room would be awesome. 

I was in Jamaica around 17 years ago. Stayed at a Sandals, don't remember which one. It was nice, but I was a lot younger so my expectations were not as high and I think the food not great.

I also was on a cruse that stopped in bermuda for a couple if days around 22 years ago. Bermuda was awesome but I'd like to go someplace warmer since this trip will probably be in March. 

Thank you for your recommendations and thoughts!
