We've long appreciated the detailed hotel reviews and refreshingly honest from . In their new video series, The Oyster Half Dozen, they're ranking hotels by theme. First up: best beach hotels in the U.S. and Caribbean.
With the temperature rapidly approaching winter, now's the time to start thinking about hotels with beaches as built-in amenities.
The top six are:
6. , Miami, Florida |
It's mellow (chaises, food and drink service, kite surfing), with seamless access from the pool lounge.
5. , Costa Rica |
Two beautiful, remote white sand strips, accessible by golf cart. Watch out for the monkeys.
4. Stanza Mare Coral Comfort, Dominican Republic |
Crystal clear water, easy access, and the option to parasail.
3. , Hawaii |
Nearly all the rooms face the water, which is big and rocky and ready for exploring.
2. , Hawaii |
Boulders and crashing waves make it a little too dangerous for swimming, but it's the best for photo ops.
1. , Montego Bay, Jamaica |
Dreamy: swim with dolpins, ride horses through the water, windsurf, kayak to your heart's delight.
