Aventura Mexicana Hotel
 
4.9
"This is a lovely hotel located just off the beach in Playa del Carmen. It's a beautiful small hotel. Rooms are nice. Lovely courtyard with pool. Very reasonable rates. Excellent and courteous staff. The restaurant, Mayan Bristo, serves some delicious food. If you're looking to stay in town in Playa, this is a great choice."
True Blue Bay Resort
 
4.7
"This is an absolutely lovely hotel in Grenada. Rooms were very clean, the grounds were beautiful and the breakfast provided each morning was great. The resort is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and the views are spectacular! True Blue Bay Resort is probably one of finest boutique small hotels in the Caribbean. Fabulous location, excellent rooms, terrific facilities, friendly and attentive..."
Mahekal Beach Resort
 
4.9
"Mahekal Beach Resort is a great little beach front resort. I was traveling with two other friends and we all loved it. The cabana was just fine, though nothing special. But it's the location! The food at the resort was pretty good, service good, quality staff. I would go back here anytime. Usually I fly into Cancun and go to Playa..."
Stingray City
 
4.5
"This excursion was fantastic! The water is so clear. The stingrays were amazing - almost dancing with us all in about 3 feet of water out on the sandbar."
Palancar Caves
 
4.7
"I LOVE Palacar Reef...and I especially love Palacar Caves. The coral heads are massive - creating huge swim throughs. Weaving in and out and then drifting along side the reef as the wall drops off into infinity. Love it."
Marigot Beach Club Hotel & Dive Resort
 
4.5
"The hotel is in a beautiful location, on a beautiful bay. The room was pretty and functional, with a nice little kitchen and bathroom. If you are looking for huge 5 star resort, this is not the resort for you. The resort is small and very island like - with a terrific ambiance and view. Our room was very comfortable and our terrace looked..."

Wisconsin Carribean Holiday Seekers
"Huge, but beautiful and spotless.Missed not having a beach. Food was very good, staff was very freindly and helpful. Rooms were spacious, really enjoyed the hammocks and the liquor dispensors. Room service was prompt and delicous. Plan on walking, this place is spread out, but we didn't mind the walk. Was easy making reservations for dining and excursions as well. We took an excursion to..."

"I have been to OTI many times. I like the small size of the hotel, beautiful grounds and competent staff. It is walking distance to town where you can find some great restaurants. www.ballahoo.com The hotel is set in tranquil tropical gardens, overlooking Basseterre and Nevis (view is magnificent), and OTI offers personalized service, clean..."

"Our 2nd time at AV - 3rd time at a Palace Resort. We went with 2 other couples and had a great time! The service was awesome and the resort is beatiful! The Spa is the best I've ever been too. Had a massage in an oceanview bungalow. Very relaxing and pampering! Very much needed in this stressful world!..."

"I stayed for one week summer 2004 at Bananarama in Roatan. This is a very unprofessional dive operation and did not meet the expectations of anyone in the large group of divers scheduled there for the week. The boats did not run for much of the time we were there. There were two instances when the boat was disabled while away from..."

  • The Best Deals in the Caribbean
    Air-and-land packages to the tropics in the month of May have been affected by the same airfare increases (reflecting the sky-high price of jet fuel) that have been so widely noted for trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific trips (where fuel surcharges now add upward of $300 and more to the average trip).

    Twice as Nice in Puerto Morelos If you think it’s hot in Mexico in August, you’re right. But it’s hot everywhere in August â€" and cheaper to book a vacation on the Mexican Caribbean.

    Delicious Dining in the Caymans The Diners It was a cool relaxing day at Over the Edge.

    French Charm in the Caribbean Waves jostled the high-speed ferry as it bolted from the harbor at Philipsburg, on St. Martin, aiming with churning indignation for St. Barthelemy.

  • The Best Spots in Dominica
    The Best Spots in Dominica The best places to see in Dominica before you die will certainly blow your mind. Why? Mostly because you have no idea what country I'm even talking about. This isn't the Dominican Republic, a common mix up. Dominica is an island country all of its own, and it's actually considered to be one of the least travel countries in the world.
