serious snorkelers seek resort with onsite reef

Jump to last reply

my husband and i are in our late 30s and desperate for a mid february caribbean snorkeling vacation on any hot island with little rain at a resort with it's very own quality reef in calm, clear waters abundant in diverse marine life, with an expanse large enough to hold our interest for the week.
although uncommon, an onsite "swim-up-to" living reef is key, as my health demands i stay close to the resort for frequent rests. this makes excursions/other site trips impossible, especially with my walker, although i can manage without if i stay on the resort.
the resort itself need not be ostentatious, but predicated on service and cleanliness. friendliness and animals are pluses. rooms require a/c, tv & minifridge. elevators/shopping/entertainment/activities/culture/nightlife aren't necessary, although supplying towels for outdoor use and a pool is a plus. all-inclusive is essential, however research indicates not typical, so if absolutely necessary we'd settle with onsite restaurants or restaurants within 10 min walking distance (then we'd need a kitchenette and close-by grocery & liquor store too).
traveling is manageable, so if the destination EXISTS, i CAN make the trip! ALL suggestions would be GREATLY GREATLY appreciated! and many thanks!
