Fodor's Expert Review Royal Palm Island Resort

Little Frenchman Caye, Belize

For an all-inclusive, family-friendly option, this playful getaway---the only thing on 6-acre Little Frenchman Caye---is a special experience. Sea kayaking around the mangrove biome, swimming, and playing chess on a giant chessboard make great activities for kids. You won't be roughing it: comfortable cottages, set fairly close together, have two bedrooms, turndown service, TV, and other amenities. Decor and furnishings feel a little hodgepodge, but you're unlikely to hang out in your room much. Though not quite as polished as some luxury island resorts, the casual, intimate atmosphere is what make it lovable. The boat ride is a mere 20 minutes.
