Cheap Caribbean (tel. 800/915-2322; www.cheapcaribbean.com) is known for its rock-bottom prices to great resorts in the sunny spots, and this three-night Bahamas deal is no different: Enjoy airfare and three nights' hotel from $399.

You'll fly to Nassau from Fort Lauderdale and spend three nights at the Wyndham Nassau Resort and Crystal Palace Casino in an oceanview room with a private balcony. The hotel is right on Cable Beach, with more than 500 rooms, a casino, and nightlife and dining options galore.

Why is this a deal? A search for round-trip airfare reveals midweek flights in early May from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau for $184 per person. An oceanfront hotel room with either two queen beds or one king bed for three nights would cost $779.88, or $384.94 per person. Booking this trip independently would cost you about $573.94 per person. The package saves you $174.94; add $50 per person for a savings of $224.94 (or $100 per room per stay) if you factor in the dining credit for meals.

Trip Type: Air-inclusive; independent

What the Quoted Price Gets You: Round-trip airfare from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau, Bahamas; three nights at the Wyndham Nassau Resort and Crystal Palace Casino with a complimentary oceanview upgrade; a $100 resort credit; and a $100 dining credit.
