Resort/hotel suggestions for December for a family

Hi, I am looking for an all inclusive resort on the beach for a family of four. We like to relax by a pool and enjoy the beach. BUT we are not the type of family that likes a Disney resort, Hard Rock etc.,. We like something more low key but nice.

HELP! What suggestions do you have?

We need more info from you to make meaningful suggestions:

How long a trip are you planning?

When in December are you planning to travel? If Christmas week you could run into minimum stay requirements.

Where are you flying from?

How old are your children?

What type of budget do you have for airfare? Give actual dollar figure.

How long a flight are you willing to endure?

Are you willing to take one or more connecting flights and or ferries after departing from your nearest international gateway airport to reach your final destination?

What budget do you have for accommodations? Again, give dollar range not some nebulous term like “affordable” or “won’t break the bank”.

Just returned from Beaches TCI. Downside - expensive. Upside - fabulous beach, multiple pools and restaurants. Plenty to do but very quiet. Relatively easy air arrangements from much of eastern US. Non-stop flights from FLL, MIA, ATL, CLT - plus several other cities on weekends. On real planes, not Caribbean puddle jumpers.

OP tagged "Bermuda" in subject line of post. Doesn't matter though as he/she has not returned to provide meaningful background info to help narrow down possibilities.

You might want to check this out... The Hilton La Romana has amazing rates for an all-inclusive beach resort. Rooms for two guests are currently $204, less if you pay in advance, and depending on your dates, of course.

Look at the Buccaneer Resort on St Croix. Not truly an all-inclusive, but it does include a fabulous breakfast buffet. Our family of 5 adults loved it.
