Sandcastle, Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands (not super deluxe, but very gorgeous and completely inaccessible).

There's also one whose name escapes me, on a little island near West End, Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Cocobay in Antigua, and there are 2 great hotels on Barbuda that look fantastic-but haven't had a chance to visit yet.


I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning.

I think it might be Peter Island.

Windjammer Landing Hotel, St Lucia.

I didn't stay here but my brother did, and I visited him whilst we were ther (I stayed at a different hotel). It is a little off the beaten track but the facilities are excellent. You could literally get everything you need/want there. If you didn't want to you could spend all your time there without leaving.

The taxi into Rodney Bay (which is where I stayed) costs about EC$13, which is about £3.

I stayed at the Coco Kreole, which is a very small (but being expanded for the Cricket world cup), but it isn't too small. All the staff know you on a personal basis, even the cleaners. http://www.cocokreole.com/ is the web address for it. It is perfectly situated (near the beach...restaurants are in a 3 minute walk) and the rooms are standard.

The Four Seasons Nevis and the new Raffles Resort Canouan Island are both very deluxe (haven't been to the latter, but it looks quite nice). A bit more rustic, but still luxurious, is Ladera in St. Lucia. The rooms are all set on a hillside and are open on one side, with spectacular views of the Pitons and the sea. Definitely a unique experience, if you don't mind the occasional lizard. Check out http://www.ladera.com/

The Kings Beach Hotel just up the coast from Mullins Bay on the West coast of Barbados was great - but that was nearly 5 years ago.

Wherever you go just enjoy!

BVIs are sensational! Although the best way to see them is by yacht, we had a family holiday a few years back doing this and it allows you to see all the other parts of the islands. The sailing is very easy, although Anegada can prove too much for the novices! Fortunately my Dad sailed otherwise you can hire a crew. The key thing is to make sure you get the biggest yacht you can afford. A 38ft for four people would be a little cosy, we got a 54' and it was very comfortable. A mini bonus is that you get to land at SXM on the Liat hopper round from ANU although when we did it we left late and landed in the dark!

JvD though....wow.That place is incredible! Take a visit to the Soggy Dollar Bar where you should swim ashore buy yourself a cocktail and then they hang your money out to dry! The other really lovely place was Sandy Spit on the east side of JvD. A small island made of not much more than sand surrounded by deep crystal clear water.

My suggestion is to head for the FS on Nevis, very quiet and doesn't attract all the celebrities or have bling status of the Sandy Lane. Also it appears the Chavibbean hasn't spread up much to the Leewards.

If you are feeling flush you could always hire out Necker Island!

150% Agree with that one! That was the only holiday at a hotel where I could honestly say that everything went perfect!

I wanna go back!  hissyfit

The Ritz-Carlton San Juan is horrible. Last week, I stayed at the Wyndham El San Juan right which is next to it. The Wyndham might not seem as luxurious as the Ritz but it is a whole lot better. It has an incredible lobby and great restaurants. That Ritz is one of the most boring hotels I've even been to. Almost everyone at the Ritz goes over to the Wyndham at night to have a drink or gamble. All the famous people stay at the El San Juan when they go to Puerto Rico. If you stay there you're bound to see someone famous.

The Westin on St.John USVI, stunning setting.

Here's my trip report from last August including pictures of my stay in the US Virgin Islands, first three nights at the Frenchman's Reef Marriott on St.Thomas and three more nights at the Westin on St.John.

Mmmmmm - yes ! Try their secret-recipe "Painkiller" - best supped while swinging in a hammock slung between the palm trees - deeply and unreservedly fabulous.

That was the cocktail I was trying to remember the name of!  thumbsup  I also remember sailing to all the Pusser's bars around the BVIs collecting the stamps so we could get a flag......that was made about 50 miles from where I live!!

In Jamaica either one of the Grand Lido Resorts will be my choice. True all inclusive luxury money can buy....

Another of my favorites is Harbour Village in Bonaire. That is one amazing place...wonderful diving with a dive shop on the premises. Private beach, and wonderful views! A must for any SCUBA diver!

The Hyatt Cerromar was my all time favorite hotel. So many childhood memories came from that place. Unfortunately the hotel closed a few years ago. I believe it was soon after 9/11 when no one was travelling. I'm pretty sure the river pool is still open for the guests staying at the Hyatt Dorado, but the hotel is closed.

I think Round Hill, Jamaica is pretty cool. I have stayed there many times, usually in cottage 4 or 5, or 8. Several friends own cottages there which is great, or I'd never be able to afford to stay there.
Ralph Lauren owns houses there, which are pretty amazing. It is featured in some good books, including Hip Hotels. It is definitely one of the best in the Caribbean.
