Aerial view of Sugar Mill Hotel, BVI.

Sugar Mill Hotel

Why We Recommend This Resort: On Tortola, British Virgin Islands, Sugar Mill is an upscale boutique hotel surrounded by tropical gardens on the site of a 17th-century-era sugar plantation. With just 24 rooms and more than a whiff of old-school opulence it feels exclusive, but it’s also decidedly personable and friendly. Sugar Mill is family-friendly too but would be more suited to couples on romantic getaways. The main bar can get lively in the evenings but the night-time scene is generally low-key. With a resort this size you can’t expect … Read More

Restaurant at Sonesta Ocean Point Resort, Sint Maarten.

Sonesta Ocean Point

Why We Recommend This Resort: One of two Sonesta all-inclusive resorts in Sint Maarten, Sonesta Ocean Point sits right beside its larger neighbor, Sonesta Maho Beach. Sonesta Ocean Point differs quite a bit from Sonesta Maho Beach, though. It is adults-only, a lot more luxurious, 5-star even, and has a much more sedate, refined atmosphere. Guests here have full access to all the facilities of its more lively neighbor. Ocean Point is also therefore by the famous Maho Beach, where planes landing at Princess Juliana Airport fly over seemingly just … Read More

Sonesta Maho Beach Resort

Why We Recommend This Resort: St. Martin’s & Sint Maarten Island’s largest resort is the Sonesta Maho Beach, a solidly good value choice located conveniently beside the airport on the Dutch side.

A classic photo opportunity for most visitors to Sint Maarten. Sonesta Maho Beach is an energetic all-inclusive resort with a clientele that includes a lot of families but that also offers lots … Read More

Jewel Grande Montego Bay

Why We Recommend This Resort: The family-friendly Jewel Grande is a luxury all-inclusive in Montego Bay with an emphasis on wellness.

Zoëtry Curaçao

Why We Recommend This Resort: Zoëtry Curaçao is the smaller, classier sister resort of Dreams Curaçao, whose facilities and beach Zoëtry guests have full access to. It has high-quality food and drink and superb accommodation, things that place it firmly in the luxury resort category.

The Sands, Barbados

Why We Recommend This Resort: The Sands Barbados is a pleasantly low-key all-inclusive offering spacious condo-type accommodation near Barbados’ famous Worthing Beach.
