What Caribbean Resort is best for us?

Jump to last reply

Hi all! My family and I just returned from our cruise on Celebrity Reflection. We just can't get enough of the Caribbean water and the warmth of the sun. We are already looking into our next vacation. We are thinking possibly after Christmas staying for New Years. The group would include myself and my husband who will be 31 & 32, my brother and his wife who will be 29 & 31, and my parents who are in their 60's, but are very active.

Our family vacations twice a year were always to the Atlantis in the Bahamas. When the Cove opened, that is where we stayed. We did love the big resort feel and how there was always something to do. We loved having the cabanas by the pool with easy access to the beach for snorkeling. We enjoy spending our days by the pool swimming, in the ocean snorkeling, relaxing in the sun, but also having an area of shade to take a break from the sun. We all visit the gym and spa so we would love a very nice facility for some pampering.

Our evenings are usually spent at a nice dinner along with drinks. We would love a resort or at least an area where there is fine dining, as well as some nightlife such as casinos, bars, dancing, live music, etc. Anything along those lines. We would prefer to not have to go to bed after dinner because the resort or island is very quiet with not much to do.

Our budget is pretty open to most possibilites. And I know the Atlantis is pretty much the only resort of its kind, but i am hoping you all can suggest some new resorts for us to try. Thanks so much!!!
