With over 1,500 hotels available in the Caribbean, choosing just the right one for your budget and taste can be a frustrating experience. Caribbean travel expert Kay Showker leads the way to the best, but not necessarily the most expensive, resorts in the islands. To meet the author's stringent requirements, a resort needs more than location, ambiance, service, dining, and sports facilities. It must also offer something beyond these - warmth, style, and that je ne sais quois. Each of the 100 resorts chosen for this guide is described in detail. Entries also list practical information such as: Addresses and phone numbers; seasonal operating hours, minimum stay requirements, and package availability; payment and reservation requirements; airport transfer options, including distances from airports and major cities; and accommodation and amenity descriptions, including day visitors and handicap access. A vital resource for anyone planning a trip to the region. Let this guide help you find your perfect Caribbean hideaway.
