Turtle Beach, Barbados or Rose Hall Suites, Jamaica?

Jump to last reply

Hi, I hope someone can help me with this decision. I'm going to the Caribbean for the first time with my husband and two kids, 17 and 20. My daughter and I really enjoy sightseeing, whereas my son prefers to be busy with activities--all water sports, fishing, adventures. I want to stay at an AI because of the relaxation/lack of planning factor.

The Iberostar Rose Hall Suites is bigger, busier, and probably has better food. 24 hour food and beverage service, etc. But they only include one hour per room of water sports per day, which seems rather ungenerous, plus I'm a little concerned about leaving the resort with my daughter to explore.

Turtle Beach sounds like it basically closes down at 10:30 at night, but Barbados sounds "nicer" in some ways although the resort itself probably is not.

Can anyone help me decide which has the best combination of great accommodations and interesting activities? Thanks so much for any suggestions.
