Budget travelers can start your day climbing out of a tent, but we need a bit more of the stuff that makes island life simple. You can get a lot of great resort amenities, and that is important to think about. We love having a fishing dock behind the hotel, so the kids always have a place to fish and play. A big heated swimming pool is a must, plus one that open at least until midnight. A night swim is a special treat. A Poolside Tiki Bar is always a winner. Close proximity to the marinas, restaurants, and bars makes it nice.
