U.S. News & World Report ranks the 357 best hotels in the Caribbean based on an analysis of industry awards, hotel star ratings and user ratings. Hotels that scored in the top 10 percent of the Best Hotels in the Caribbean earned a Gold badge.

Note: Due to the extensive damage across many Caribbean islands and their luxury hotels during the 2017 hurricane season, U.S. News & World Report has decided not to update rankings for the Best Hotels in the Caribbean or Best All-Inclusive Resorts in the Caribbean for 2018. The Caribbean hotels will retain their 2017 score and ranking. The hotels will be re-evaluated for the Best Hotels release in 2019.

    As the first hotel to open on St. Barts, Eden Rock has been welcoming sun-seeking vacationers for more than 60 years. A-listers like Greta Garbo and Howard Hughes have graced this hotel's hallways; today, guests say Eden Rock remains just as elegant. Each accommodation is unique, with simple neutral tones and private terraces, and guests describe a stay here as worth every penny. Splurge on a specialty villa and you'll have access to such extras as a private art gallery (in the Villa Nina) or a recording studio (in the Rockstar Villa). Eden Rock sits on St. Jean Bay on the island's northern shore, granting visitors access to pristine sands and a nearby coral reef. When you need a break from the sun, indulge in an in-room spa treatment or grab a bite to eat at the acclaimed restaurant, On The Rocks. Because this is a Relais & Châteaux property, Club 5C members can earn and use their rewards here.

    If you're seeking over-the-top luxury on Antigua, look no further than Jumby Bay Island. For a pretty penny, you can bask on this small private islet 2 miles off the northeast coast of Antigua and soak up the rays on its powdery white sands. Despite its cost, recent guests thought their money was well-spent: With spectacular vistas and top-notch service, visitors had very few complaints. As for digs, Jumby Bay's Rondavel rooms reside in octagonal cottages, and each features a four-poster bed, a private courtyard, a wraparound terrace and an outdoor shower. If you can shell out some additional coin for a private villa (read: estate), you'll get your own pool and direct beach access. The resort itself offers land and water sports, three pools, a tennis club and The Jumby Bay Spa. When hunger sets in, you'll have your pick of three sit-down dining venues, which serve everything from casual poolside fare to Italian-inspired dishes to upscale Caribbean cuisine. A grab-and-go beach shack with West Indian-style street snacks (think: fresh seafood and wraps) is available as well. All meals, snacks and beverages are covered by the resort's all-inclusive room rates.

    At The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, you might have a hard time deciding where to start: along the resort's coral sands or inside your comfy lodgings. Outfitted with private balconies, soaking tubs, Asprey toiletries and minifridges, guest rooms are a point of praise for recent visitors. You can reserve a tee time at the nine-hole, Greg Norman-designed golf course, schedule a treatment at the spa or make use of the hotel's complimentary kayaks, rafts and snorkel gear. Or, park yourself on the sand. The resort offers a prime location, extending 144 acres across the Caribbean to the North Sound, facing Seven Mile Beach's shoreline. When you're ready to refuel, head to Blue by Eric Ripert, or try one of the hotel's other restaurants or bars. What's more, the Ritz-Carlton falls under the Marriott banner, meaning Marriott Rewards members can collect or redeem points here.

    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking

    A popular hideaway for honeymooners, Baoase Luxury Resort sits on the southwestern side of Curacao, less than a 9-mile drive southeast of the island's international airport. Recent guests gushed about the hotel's attentive staff and its prime location on a secluded beach. And with just 23 rooms, suites and villas (and its own private island), it's easy to see how the resort manages to create an intimate atmosphere for lodgers. Aside from the five-star customer service, past visitors were pleased with their accommodations, especially the beachfront suites, which boast private infinity pools. If you're not willing to splurge on a suite, you'll still enjoy resort or sea views from your room's balcony or patio, plus complimentary Wi-Fi access, a flat-screen TV, a minibar and a Sonos sound system, among other amenities. When you're not lounging in your digs, retreat to the resort's infinity pool, recline in a chair on the man-made beach or schedule a treatment at the spa. The beach is also where you'll find the resort's restaurant, which offers a menu of French international cuisine with an Asian twist. Although reviewers found the food delicious, they also said the prices are high.

    Eden Roc at Cap Cana prides itself on secluded luxury. Tucked inside Cap Cana, one of the Dominican Republic's most exclusive communities, this Relais & Châteaux outpost offers a long list of sumptuous amenities. Each of the resort's 34 suites features a private pool, vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and complimentary use of a golf cart (a traveler favorite). Every Eden Roc guest also has access to the Eden Roc Beach Club — a private facility that touts a palm-shaded pool, a barbecue area and a beach bar. Recent guests say a visit to the beach club is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon thanks to the attentive service and ample amount of beach chairs and umbrellas. Need a break from the surf? Head to Punta Espada, one of three Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses in Cap Cana, situated a little more than a mile from the resort. After working up an appetite, sit down for a gourmet meal four eateries — breakfast at Mediterraneo is included in your room rate, but recent visitors suggest paying extra for the seafood at La Palapa.

    Rising above its sister property, Anse Chastanet, Jade Mountain offers high-rise vistas of The Pitons, with architecture that draws on St. Lucia's natural beauty. Each of its "sanctuaries" boasts only three walls (the space where the fourth wall should be is completely open), 15-foot ceilings and furnishings crafted from tropical wood. Some suites also feature infinity pools that create the illusion of a limitless space between you, the Caribbean Sea and The Pitons. However, recent guests warned that modern conveniences like TVs and telephones are not available in any accommodations. Additionally, some said that although the open wall yields majestic views, it also means you're up close and personal with some of the island's high-flying wildlife and the occasional rainstorm. In addition to the panoramic views, Jade Mountain touts a varied list of island sports, including snorkeling in the Anse Chastanet bay, sunset sailing on the resort yacht and scuba diving with experts from the on-site PADI dive center. As the site of the finale of the 14th season of "The Bachelor," Jade Mountain knows how to create a romantic atmosphere. Couples can arrange for an in-room massage with the Kai en Ciel Spa or a private dinner on the Celestial Terrace. For other meals, there's the Jade Mountain Club helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef Allen Susser.

    Marigot Bay Resort and Marina provides luxury-seekers the ultimate in island privacy. Because of its secluded St. Lucia location, honeymooners and families looking to reconnect while on vacation flock to this high-end resort. Although amenities may be limited in the area, visitors will find two infinity pools, a spa, a fitness center and more on-site. Vacationers also have access to a nearby beach, but it requires using the property's complimentary ferry to reach. When it's time to dine, guests have their choice of three restaurants, two swim-up pool bars and private dining in their rooms, cabanas or treehouses. Most previous travelers enjoyed the property's cuisine but suggest opting for the optional all-inclusive meal plan to save some coin. Others heaped praise on the friendly staff and beautiful accommodations. Each room and suite is set on 30 acres of leafy tropical gardens and includes one or more balconies or patios that overlook the resort grounds or bay. Every space also comes outfitted with snacks and drinks, canopy beds and fully equipped kitchens. Select accommodations even tout private plunge pools or laundry rooms.

    Sitting between the Puntacana Marina and Punta Cana International Airport along the Caribbean coast, Tortuga Bay appeases travelers with luxurious amenities. Not many resorts can advertise spacious villas designed by fashion icon Oscar de la Renta. Aside from the stylish decor, accommodations also boast Jacuzzis, kitchenettes and flat-screen TVs. Guests rave about the food served on Oscar's signature tables at Bamboo (as well as at the five other restaurants guests have access to on-site and at the Puntacana Resort & Club). But that's not the only name you'll recognize. Avid golfers will jump at the chance to play one or both of Tortuga Bay's courses, designed by Tom Fazio and P.B. Dye. Meanwhile, relaxation-seekers can take advantage of the Six Senses Spa, which features a full menu of massages and body scrubs. But what guests liked the most about Tortuga Bay was how different it felt from other Punta Cana properties. Many say that the 1,500-acre reserve  maintained by the resort's ecological foundation  was a refreshing break from the overcrowded Bávaro beach hotel scene. And Leaders Club members you're in luck – as part of the Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and upgrades.

    Situated on Grace Bay in Provo, The Palms Turks and Caicos, formerly a Regent property, is hailed by guests as an ideal retreat for the whole family. The infinity pool that snakes around the hotel's grounds is a great spot for kids to cool down while grown-ups grab a drink at the poolside bar, Plunge. Dry off in one of the guest rooms, which range from 640-square-foot junior suites to one-, two- or three-bedroom suites. Each comes with at least one king-sized bed, a private balcony, and an espresso maker. To keep your blood pumping, visit the Fitness Centre where personal trainers offer useful workout advice (for an extra fee). Afterward, unwind at the 25,000-square-foot spa or grab some souvenirs at the Palms Courtyard Shops. However you spend your day, satisfy your appetite at one of the The Palms' two restaurants before sipping a nightcap at the on-site bar. Many guests agree that the gourmet fare served at The Palms is some of the best they've tried at any resort in Turks & Caicos.

    Prompting guests to appreciate their magnificent surroundings, the 37 suites at St. Lucia's adults-only Ladera Resort all boast an open wall – like a patio, minus the door – facing the dramatic Pitons and the Caribbean Sea. (Though this absent fourth wall takes luxury to the next level, don't be surprised if you wind up sharing your room with a harmless lizard or two.) Accommodations also boast private plunge pools (some with waterfalls and swings), plus free Wi-Fi access, minibars, pillow-top mattresses and kits with binoculars, star charts, slippers and eye masks. Because Ladera sits on a ridge at 1,100 feet, the resort isn't located directly on a beach. However, Ladera does provide complimentary shuttle service to Sugar Beach on the western side of the island. Ladera also offers an abundance of fee-based activities, ranging from a bartending class to a guided Saturday market tour to a sailing and snorkeling daytrip to Marigot Bay. To experience the mountains in a more restful setting, arrange for an outdoor massage at The Spa at Ladera. Previous visitors said you should also treat yourself to the field-to-fork eats at the resort's restaurant, Dasheene. All suite rates cover daily breakfast; those who plan on mostly dining on-site for lunch and dinner can purchase a partial or all-inclusive meal plan.

    Grace Bay Club in western Providenciales offers classic Caribbean vacation activities, like deep-sea fishing, couples spa treatments and poolside drink service. And after a day of fishing, relaxing, or dining, you can retire to digs ranging from ocean-facing junior suites to four-bedroom beachfront residences with private pools. Each suite or villa contains at least one king-sized bed, plus an iPod dock, an LCD TV and a kitchenette. Guests say that a stay at Grace Bay can be pricey, but with perks like a personal concierge and views of the resort's gorgeous grounds, the cost is well worth it. Unlike some other luxury resorts, Grace Bay isn't just for adults: Children of all ages can participate in snorkeling excursions or arts and crafts sessions with Grace Bay's Kids Town program. In the meantime, parents can get dressed up for an elegant dinner at the Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar restaurant or one of the other dining establishments at the resort. What's more, the hotel is part of the Leading Hotels of the World, meaning Leaders Club members have access to perks here.

    Stretching across 8 acres of Grenada's prized Grand Anse Beach, Spice Island Beach Resort is a family-run boutique hotel. Surrounded by lemon, almond and sea grape trees, each suite features a balcony or patio, air conditioning, Frette linens and Molton Brown toiletries.

Just in case hammock-lounging didn't fill your relaxation quota, the in-house Janissa's Spa provides body polishes and massages. And encouraging guests to take advantage of its primo beachside location, Spice Island offers complimentary snorkeling, kayaking and sailing, in addition to tennis and cycling. When hunger strikes, head to Oliver's Restaurant, which serves up a Creole-inspired menu accompanied by live music. Recent guests advise taking advantage of the all-inclusive option to avoid racking up expensive restaurant tabs.
