Hey fellow travelers,
I'd love your help choosing the best resort for my wife and myself. We have 4 kids and this is our annual "get away on a trip WITHOUT the kids". Neither of us are super high maintenance but the main reason we like to get away is rest and relaxation. We do want adult-only, though.
Probably traveling in the Fall, maybe right after Labor Day (Hurricane season, so will get travel insurance).
We are in our low-mid 40s and we're not big party people so although my wife may enjoy going out dancing for a few hours, we're not into staying up past midnight and going crazy.
We'd rather be away from all that noise, and by 11:00 PM, we're wanting to be asleep. (Our room in Jamaica was too close to the very loud party festivities that would go well past midnight).
Excellence looked really nice, but I read a lot of reviews about the food being not-so-good. Pictures of the food seemed like it was always the "fancy presentation, small servings". Both of us tend to prefer regular food over super fancy stuff ... in other words, "gimme a medium rare steak, not a steak with a bunch of sauce we can't pronounce, lol.
Ideally, our days would be spent relaxing by the pool, beach, playing a little volleyball or other activities, enjoying the restaurants, bars, and maybe some after-dinner entertainment.
1 - great food, with good variety
2 - beautiful beach/pool spaces with plenty of room to relax
3 - large enough (or high enough) property to be able to escape the late night party noise
4 - comfortable rooms/beds.
Look forward to your suggestions!
