Travel is our passion! We love to travel to exotic, tropical destinations and stay in amazing luxury resorts. But how do you choose the perfect resort in the perfect location?Hawaii? ... Caribbean? ... South Pacific?
Anguilla vs. Bahamas ... Big Island vs. Lana'i
We have done the research. We have scouted the properties.
Our Website lists our favorite tropical resorts based on our experiences at the properties. We give the good and the not so good on each property. We look to provide as much information as possible on each resort and island. Once you have the information, you can decide which of these amazing properties is right for your tropical vacation.Click on any Resort Link located in the column to the right to go to the Resort Page.
OUR FAVORITE RESORTS
When we look to take a tropical vacation, we look for specific things in a luxury resort. We have created an index that ranks our favorite tropical resorts. The following criteria are the most important when ranking our favorite properties:
- Beaches - Beautiful beaches are the first thing we look for in choosing a tropical resort. Good snorkeling is always a plus.
- Seclusion - Do you hate crowds? So do we! Our favorite resort will be peaceful, tranquil, secluded and calm.
- Service - We love great service ... who doesn't? But we are not "service junkies" who need someone fawning over us at all times. We understand "island time" and recognize that service will vary based on the culture of the country you are in; heck, that is half the fun of travel. What we look for is smooth check in, prompt beach/pool service and attentive bar and restaurant service.
- Room - A quality room is important and a soaker tub is a BIG plus. The room doesn't have to be fancy; just a comfortable bed and quality finish and amenities and we are very happy.
- Spa - Nothing allows for more relaxation than a soothing spa treatment. High quality treatments with a local flair, superior facilities including relaxation room and top tier amenities and we are ready for relaxation!

FAVORITE vs. BEST
TropicalResortFinder.com does not rank the "best" resort; all the resorts listed are first-class, luxury resorts. Asking which resort is best is like asking what the best ice cream is; they are all good, but we have our favorites. At TropicalResortFinder.com we rank our favorite resorts based on the following criteria:
Overall quality of resort (layout, decor, amenities, service, etc.), room and bathroom quality, quality of the beach and pool, overall service at the resort, spa, golf, restaurants, bar/lounge, shopping nearby, snorkeling and local activities.
So remember, if a resort is on our website, it is a world-class luxury resort. All resorts are EXCELLENT properties; we just like some a little better than others.[return to top of page]
