all inclusive in caribbean?

Hi All! I've been looking through previous posts and getting overwhelmed... My husband and I are trying to plan a 7-10 day vacation. After a few sightseeing trips we are looking forward to beach, snorkeling, golf, tennis, etc. and great food. I prefer smaller bungalows or low-rise hotels to large hotels and definitely need clean/safe. Can anyone recommend something for a June or July vacation? Our budget would probably be in the $350 or below range. Thanks so much!

Any of Aruba's Divi Resorts would offer what you're looking for. There are, I think, three or four Divi Resorts on Aruba but the Divi Tamarijn Beach Resort (http://www.tamarijnaruba.com/tamhome.html) has the low-rise style you prefer.

We've already been to Aruba and were hoping to try something new... any other ideas? Budget could be a little higher if necessary...
Thanks!

Have you checked out any of the Sandals Resorts in Negril (http://www.sandals.com/main/negril/ne-home.cfm) or Ocho Rios (http://www.sandals.com/main/ochorios/or-home.cfm)? Both these resorts have most of what you're looking for and I think are within, or at least close to, your price range.

Look at Half Moon Bay in Jamaica. Great old school caribbean resort that has also kept up with the times. Great tennis and golf and another course next door if you want a second one. Food is good with many dinning options on site and low (2 story) buildings along a good beach on the north shore of Jamaica.

Also easy to get to.

Hi, My wife and I returned yesterday from Mexico and had a great time. We stayed at Sandos Gala Playacar,it is an all inclusive resort which we really liked. I don't know if you mean 350 a night or total, if total it wont get you very far. We were their for 7 nights, including spending money we spent a total of 2500. It was a great vacation!!!!!!

I'm not sure what you mean by $350 - but the Krystal Valerta in Puerto Valerta, Mexico looks to be in that price range and we've always had a great time when we've stayed there (2X).
