Favorite Overall Resorts


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.

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.
