Thatched roof cottages

Greetings everyone....I remember for our honeymoon we went to Caneel Bay where they had thatched roof cottages on the beach. We shouldn't spend quite that much on our 40th anniversary....but would like similar accomodations on any quiet island. Any suggestions.
Thanks for your help

What is your budget for room/food/airfare???? All we know from your post is you think the cost (most likely based on what you spent 40 years ago) of staying at Caneel Bay is more than you want to spend for your upcomming trip. So, how much do you want to spend?

It would also help if you told us where are you travelling from and when are you planning to make your trip??? Tell us, too, what you want to do once you get "to where you are going" as it will make it easier to steer you in the right direction. The answers to those questions will have a big bearing on which destination(s) are right for you.

FYI - there are very few "real" thatched roof cottages in the Caribbean, however, there are a great many places where you can get beachfront or beach access accomodations. Would you be adversed to staying in a typical resort with attached rooms or do you have your heart set on staying in "cottage on the beach"? There are litterally scores of islands and hundreds upon hundreds of resorts in the Caribbean. We need more info from you to be of any real help.

Look at the Mahekal Beach Resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico No where near as expensive as Caneel Bay. We haven't stayed there yet, but it's on our list. Have been to Playa del Carmen twice though. Room rate includes breakfast and either lunch/dinner.
