Finding the Right All Inclusive Holiday

We are looking for a special boutique all inclusive to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We have been to Jamaica, Punta Cana, Cuba and Mexico and would like to go somewhere different with a beautiful beach and island. We would like to have room right on the beach with a classic luxury feel with good food. Our budget for the resort is $2500 per person since this is special celebration and then we will use air miles for the flight. I would love some suggestions.

Thanks, Mary Joan

There are really only 2 AI's here. One is Club Med and the other is Beaches. Club Med is more dormy rooms and Beaches can be full of kids. There is an area that are for adults but it is very busy. This may not be the island for you.

Many places that are not AI that are wonderful. Would you consider this instead?

I agree with Scubagirl......if you're only wanting All Inclusive, then TCI is not for you. HOWEVER, don't rule it out. Grace Bay is stunning!!!! There are a lot of gorgeous hotels to choose from for your budget. Plus, Provo has many wonderful restaurants to dine at. It's not the type of island that you would want to do an AI...unlike DR and Cuba.

Whereas Grace Bay is stunning and the water beautiful I highly encourage St. Lucia for your 25th. Much more spectacular for that special event. I've been both places and would not hesitate to return to either but for that special occasion it's St. Lucia hands down.

Could you please explain your reasoning with some examples?

We have visited St. Lucia and really liked the island and would someday return to it.

Just curious why it would be more special?

Thanks for your thoughts.
