    Ahh, the Caribbean. It’s home to bath-warm seas, swaying palm trees and sugar-white sands – but that’s not all. You’ll also find some of the very best Palace hotels here. They’ve all made the grade to be part of our fancy A La Carte collection. That means you get treated like a VIP from the get-go, with a larger luggage allowance and private taxi transfers.

    To top it all off, we have two exciting offers for you. Kids and teens can go free in 2018* and you can have up to $2,500** to spend in resort – hello holiday! But where should you stay? We’ve rounded up our top three options to help you decide.


    The beach-lover one

    If your idea of a holiday is lying on a #nofilter beach, turn your eyes to Jamaica. This laid-back isle is home to tastebud-tickling food, fruity rum cocktails, and some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. And, as it happens, Moon Palace Jamaica has a postcode on the longest beach in Ocho Rios. You’ll be just a few sandy footsteps from the sea, where you can kayak and windsurf at no extra cost. Back in the hotel, meanwhile, there are five pools to keep everyone happy – one’s just for tots, one has two waterslides, and one has a swim-up bar. Tackle the surf-simulating FlowRider® machine if you’re feeling brave, or take it easy in the luxury spa. After a busy – or lazy – day, you can take your pick from five restaurants. Tuck into seafood dishes, Italian specialities, or Chinese bites with a Caribbean twist. Intrigued? There’s only one way to find out…

    The romantic one

    If you’re dreaming of an island escape, Mexico might not be on your list – but it should be. Why? Isla Mujeres. Floating seven miles off the coast of Cancun, this dreamy island is encircled by coral reefs and quiet beaches. And the petite Isla Mujeres Palace is the perfect place to stay. Designed just for adults, this five-star retreat has loads of little luxuries included. You’ll arrive by yacht, and be treated to sunset dinners on the beach. The Azul restaurant serves up mouth-watering food, while the pool curves around a swim-up bar. Although, with 24/7 room service and a private hot tub, you could be forgiven for never leaving your room…

    The family one

    Back on the mainland, it’s all about Moon Palace Cancun. This place is a firm believer in the ‘bigger is better’ approach, with five pools, 12 restaurants and 123 acres of tropical gardens. It’s great for families, too. Minigolf, table tennis and the pirate-themed playground will keep all ages entertained. There’s also a Kids’ Club and a Teens’ Lounge. But the cherry on top of the cake is the FlowRider®. You can each grab a bodyboard and test your balance on this wave machine – or parents could just sidle over to one of the four swim-up bars. Dining-wise, you’ve got every cuisine under the sun, including Mexican, Brazilian, Asian and Italian options. And, if you feel like exploring, lively Cancun is just a short taxi-ride away.
