Best Affordable Beach Resorts

Opened by former travel writer Uschi Wetzels, this two-story plantation-style hotel on Barbados’s windswept eastern coast has hammocks on the wide verandas and sweeping ocean panoramas. But it isn’t for everyone. There's no air-conditioning in the Main House (it is available in the 3-room Cottage, however) or television, guests share a single phone, and mosquito repellent can come in handy at sunset. Easygoing Americans and Europeans guests who seek out this place get to know each other over family-style meals.
Cost: From $124
Don’t Miss: The Flower Forest Botanical Gardens beckons with more than 50 acres filled with tropical flora, from sago palms to birds-of-paradise.
