It's our 30th wedding anniversary in mid May and as a treat we want to spend 2 weeks in the Caribbean, however, not having been before it's a mine field of knowing where to choose. I've always fancied seeing Barbados because of the British colonial appeal and have now looked at combining it perhaps with Grenada. Any advice would be appreciated based on the following:
We're young at heart & active in our early/mid 50's
Love eating out in mid priced restaurants
Want a restful holiday yet like to have the option of sightseeing if desired
Would like to do a little clothes shopping, so a decent town nearby would be desirable!
We're not into any kind of sports, so not bothered about beach activities
Want 4 or 5 star hotels which are lowrise with attractive grounds, preferably on a beach
I've considered all inclusive resorts, but as we're not into sports and don't drink to excess, I don't think we'd get value for our money.
