We've just come back from another caribbean vacation, and did up some caribbean travel tips. Hope they help. Here's a sample:

  1. Make sure you book the room that you actually want If you are two singles traveling together, make sure you ask for two separate beds. If you are a couple, ask for a king size bed. (Yes, if you have a good travel agent, they should be able to accommodate you, and help you with this.)

  1. If you are a couple, and you are on your honeymoon or anniversary, you should definitely inquire at the front desk about a free upgrade when you check-in. Please remember that the resort receives emails about room requests all the time. Be understanding as this is only a request. (Note that it is much better to ask in person at the front desk, than to send an email about it.)

  1. Make sure you book at a time for your arrival that is convenient for you. If you have to check into your rooms after three in the afternoon and you have booked a morning flight that you arrive earlier, be prepared for that your room may not be ready. If you are arriving in the evening, it should be no problem. Understanding that rooms become available in the afternoon means that you understand people check out for their flights that day, and that rooms must be cleaned by the maid before you can check into yours. Check with your hotel for available check in times.

the rest are posted on our caribbean travel tips page.

Not quite geared to the TP audience, I think, but thanks for the information :)

I just read through the website, and it does have some good tips for anyone planning an all-inclusive holiday in the Carribean. Plus it has some nice pictures of Varadero and Punta Cana.

Thanks for posting the link.
