We continue our Best of the Caribbean series with a look at the small hotel properties that make the Caribbean tick — particularly those of 50 rooms or less. While the Caribbean has superb luxury resorts and all-inclusives, it has an array of small, charming boutique properties that offer a laid-back yet luxurious experience. The CJ team looked at a range of factors in making the decision for the final 10; each stands out in at least one of these categories: ambience, quality of food, luxury, quality of service, location, romance, affordability and design, among others. Are there any small Caribbean hotels you think should have made the list? Let us know in the comments below.
Secret Bay – Dominica
Secret Bay is the smallest hotel on this list — with just four units comprised of a pair of large villas and two smaller bungalows. All of them have one thing in common – simply extraordinary views of the coast of Dominica (and, on most days, Guadeloupe). Secret Bay is all about the escape — when you’re here, it’s just you and the beauty of the Caribbean.
