Sun & Sand at Sonesta Ocean Point
A summer getaway in St. Martin (or Sint Maarten if you’re staying on the Dutch side) can drum up images of true island paradise. Sprawling hills coupled with the azure waters of over 30 different beaches—it’s hard to be disappointed no matter where you decide to stay. But for those of you looking for the ultimate St. Martin vacation—as in one of the few adults-only, all-inclusive experiences available—look no further than Sonesta Ocean Point.

Luxury for Less: Caribbean Resorts on Sale in Summer
The dog days of summer can come with muggy days and buggy nights that don’t exactly add up to a vacation. For a change of scenery, switch it up this year and head south to the Caribbean where you’ll find cool breezes, uncrowded beaches and discounted beds for heads at top-notch resorts that you may not be able to afford during high season.
