25th Anniversary coming up and I'd like to take to the mrs to an all inclusive resort in the Carribean but after 20 minutes of searching already have a headache and am hoping some of you here have some referrals or ideas that might make this a little easier.

TIA

Just what I was going to suggest! Been there too. Great time! I could post some pics of Caneel Bay. I might have some photo's of Little Dix Bay, we didn't stay there but visited.

Here is a picture of Caneel Bay near the front desk.

This is coming from our room, which was right there on the beach, looking over Turtle Bay at Caneel Bay Resort. Loved waking up in the morning, grabbing the snorkling gear and heading out in the bay.

Just spent my honeymoon at Royal Plantation in Jamaica. Would highly recommend if you like a more quiet and sophisticated Caribbean vacation.

Thanks for all the links!

Went ahead and discussed with the mrs as I also found out out we can stay at Harrah's Casino Lake Tahoe for 6 nights for only $79 thanks to our total rewards.:hmmm:

We both enjoy a little gambling plus I can bet on NFL and watch all the games :D

Decisions,decisions

Lake Tahoe is awesome, if you've never been there I'd highly recommend it. Plus you'll be keeping your $ in the U.S.

IMHO Tahoe sucks. Water's too cold to enjoy, and the casinos are full of bluehairs.

I got married in Tahoe many years ago. There used to be a little place there call Dory's Oar that had some great KING Crab legs and Huge Lobsters. If you like seafood you should see if this palce is still around.

According to my research Harrah;s also owns Harvey's(which is connected) that has a Sammy Hagar Cabo Wabo bar,I can't imagine too many bluehairs hanging out there.

LOL I looked at the menu and didn't even see crab legs listed. Things could change in 20 year. They do have steak on the menu.

I attended a convention in Tahoe in 2003. Aside from those of us at the convention (all under 40) everyone else appeared to be 50+.

You CAN see the worlds largest solid gold cock at the Nugget.

We're thinking now about combining an Anniversary and New Year's Eve trip together to make it more affordable and have the same offer in Vegas at any Harrah's property,5 nights free and under $100 for the 6th.

Don't want to do Caesar's or Paris,just not our style,but looking at Rio or Planet Hollywood.Take in a show or two and hit The Hilton sportsbook for all the NFL action.

Rio is nice, and you get free transportation to the strip. Great seafood buffet Friday nights.

I took a carnival cruise w/ my gf's family a year ago. It was a blast, left Miami, went to San Juan, then dom repub, then BVI, then Nassau (where Atlantis resort is) then back to Miami. 7 day cruise.

dont know if cruises are your thing, but it was fun going. Not too expensive

We've stayed at both a Sandals (Montego Bay) and Beaches (Negril). Mo Bay was nice, but Negril was awesome. Highly recommend either of them.

Do you know if that shuttle runs 24/7,we're some serious late nighters when it comes to Vegas.

IIRC it stops at 10pm or so, but at least you'd only have to cab one way

Who gives a shit if the water's cold? Tahoe is beautiful.

I'll never understand people who think any vacation destination that doesn't involve drinking on a fucking beach sucks. :shake:

Because his intial plan was the Carribean. Wanted to make sure he didn't think they could swim at Tahoe.

Personally, I like vacations with sightseeing and activities, not drinking on the beach.

I love Tahoe. Been there many times. Lst time we went, we snomobiled, took a dinner cruise out on the lake, and gambled and watched games. We also took a trip to Carson City and that was kinda cool.
