Which Caribbean island is right for me?

Jump to last reply

I'm looking to book a 5 day trip to a Caribbean island in Febuary, but I'm a little lost on which island to pick.

I'm looking for a smaller hotel directly on a beach that is fairly groomed and not overly crowded. I plan to spend the bulk of my time on the beach or in the water so this is key. We would love a place that has some snorkeling or scuba. Also, being able to check out various restaurants within walking/biking/short driving distance would be great. I love food so exploring different restaurants or little bars at night would be great.

The hotel doesn't need to be five stars, but I'm used to staying in boutique type hotels that are clean so this is my goal. I'm having a hard time finding a hotel that's smaller or has a more intimate feel for less than $600 a night. Maybe eco chic in Caribbean high season for $400 or 500 a night is too much to ask? :) I hope not!

Looking for:
small, chic hotel
great beach
scuba or snorkeling
maybe a spa

What I'm looking to avoid:
all inclusive properties
strips of high rise hotels on the beach
chain restaurants
casinos

don't care for but could live with:
shopping
nightclubs

Thanks to anyone who is still reading and has some ideas!
