Help with planning a family vacation


I’m trying to plan our family’s first Caribbean resort vacation. We need:

- small uncrowded resort (as long as it’s clean I don’t care if it’s updated)

- good food (preferably fresh simple food, doesn’t have to be gourmet)

- amazing swimmable beach!!! We are beach people

I am so overwhelmed with the options.

Please help!

Thank you in advance

Not sure the " Caribbean " forum will give much help. Not well viewed as most members only monitor specific island forums and not this ( can't really see ). Specific forums will give you better options.

What you want is offered on all islands - depends if you want all inclusive or condo / villa type. Also $100 a night or $1000 a night? What time of year - August / September so peak hurricane season ?

Believe it or not, most islands have to import food so fresh ?? Maybe but..... There are some exceptions though. How many connection flights do you want ?

Personally, we 1st look at budget ( what can we afford ). Then flight ( we only do direct - no connections ). Then what we want to do ( sit by pool or beach, excursions etc ). This narrows down to 1 or 2 islands and then we research.
