50-64 year old male

Memphis, Tennessee

Enjoy visiting a different island in the Caribbean each winter (and there are still a few yet to see). Aiming for as many amenities as one can get out of a "budget" hotel. Top priority is a hotel within walking distance of restaurants and beach bars, as well as a grocery. Another top priority is a safe location to walk around in the evening after dark. A pool is a higher priority than a beach. Have successfully travelled for many years in the tropics without needing to rent a car or hire a taxi except when heading to/from airport. Being able to rent a bicycle locally is a big plus. Over the years, have been nearly always satisfied with the lodging we have chosen -- painstakenly via the internet and with the recommendation of previous tripadvisor.com visitors. Now just trying to "pay forward" and provide a detailed account on our stay, offering positive reflections as well as disappointments (often which could be corrected w/o much effort)
