All Inclusive vacation-help me choose

Hello Everyone
I've been reading all your messages, and decided to give it a try! My boyfriend of 4 years and I are looking into a all-inclusive vacation to take around May 2003. We're in our mid 20's and are looking for a relaxing week. We'd like to find somewhere we can spend most of our time relaxing at the resort, and moderately priced.Nice restaurants, grounds, pools etc.. We're not looking for a huge nightlife, but somewhere maybe for a nice night out with dinner and drinks. Any suggestions would be very apprecitated. looking forward to hearing from you!!!

Lauren: Breezes in Bahama's is great. My husband and I were married there in 1996. Great food morning, noon and night and they grill out by the pool all afternoon. Unlimited drinks and activities all day and night if that interests you. Several restaurants to pick from depending on your tastes. Free water activities, great pool and beach. Beware of the locals who are constantly after you to have your hair braided or to purchase their wares! The beach is not private property only the hotel property so the locals are always bugging you. There's a casino within walking distance and the golfing across the street.We will go back for sure.

lauren-

we have been in several all-inclusives vacations. we honeymooned at sandals st lucia golf resort in 2000, vacationed at blue bay papaguyo in costa rica in 1999, and stayed at the moon palace hotel in the mayan riveria last september. we are also in our late 20s and had a great time at all three. my next all inclsive trip will be to xpuha in mexico. it is an eco-all inclusive. depemding on what you would like to spend moon palace is likely the best bang for the buck. sandals lived up to its reputation for about twice what moon palace cost. cr and blue bay was a great trip and a great value.

Look at Couples, Negril before you decide. My husband and I went in November for our 5th anniversary and loved it! Beach is beautiful, with lots of shade available if you want it. There are 3 restaurants and we enjoyed all of them. Only one requires reservations. The beach is private so there are no hassles. Property is beautiful, AND several off-site excursions are offered- included in the price!! We booked through Apple Vacations and got a great deal. E-mail if you have questions. Suzi

We really enjoyed Sandals Antigua. The grounds are beautiful, beach is nice and long with calm waters and white sand, excellent food and service, nice rooms (not a single bad room location as the grounds are so pretty) and just a very relaxing and romantic atmosphere.

Depending on what you call "moderately priced". You can look at Sandals, Beaches, Couples, etc. I found that going "all-inclusive" means usually paying for over-priced stuff. Because liquor is very expensive in the Caribbean, resorts tend to make up the difference by either watering them down or cutting corners on food. I have tried them, but found that by choosing my own restaurants and not going "all-inclusive" gives me a better vacation experience for the same money. Part of the vacation "experience" in the Caribbean is sampling the fine dining some of these islands offer. Don't be "penny wise and pound foolish". If you are going to spend that amount of money, why cheat yourself out of one of the best parts of the Caribbean. I really like Aruba. It contains all of the best parts of the Caribbean. Great beaches, fine dining, friendly people, great resorts. Also, nothing beats a great travel agent who has experienced it themselves. My agent is Alan Kramer with Pinnacle Tours. His number is (800) 541-7057.
