All-inclusive Caribbean

Mark and David's verdict:

If you want maximum pampering and total relaxation in the Caribbean, it’s hard to beat Sandals, which has luxury all-inclusive resorts on prime beaches in Jamaica, Antigua, St Lucia, Grenada and the Bahamas. Look out for the Caribbean's first over-the-water suites which open at Sandals Royal Caribbean in January 2017.
