This rustic-elegant adults-only all-inclusive sits on a three-quarter-mile beach of powdery white sand just a 10-minute drive from the capital of St. John's. It's a mid-sized resort, not too big and not too small, with a full roster of all-inclusive perks essential for a complete island holiday: swimming pool, spa, tennis court with tennis pro ($30/lesson), bicycles, watersports toys, and three restaurants offering plentiful food and drink and live bands to entertain diners. You stay in beachfront rooms or suites or the romantically named Gauguin Cottages, a honeymooner's dream, with Tahitian-style thatched roofs and private plunge pools nestled in tropical greenery; no matter where you stay, you'll have a big king bed to sink into at day's end. The décor throughout samples both colonial and tropical references, with rattan or dark acacia-wood furnishings, terracotta tile floors, and beachy accents. All but the Gauguin Cottages are beachfront, and the snorkeling is good right off the sand.
