    Hotel Christopher
    Gustavia
    5.0-star Hotel Class
    5.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Located on St. Barts' northern coast, Hotel Christopher provides luxury-seekers with an intimate getaway. Each of the 42 guest rooms and suites features neutral decor with pops of bright orange throughout and comes outfitted with a private terrace, free Wi-Fi access, a flat-screen TV with a DVD player, a minibar and Sisley toiletries. Previous visitors said they left this Preferred LVX hotel feeling completely relaxed as a result of the property's isolated location. High-end amenities like the full-service Sisley Spa and the stunning seaside infinity pool are bound to help you unwind, while the two on-site dining venues, Christo Lounge Restaurant and Mango Beach Club, are sure to satiate your appetite after a long day of swimming, sailing, hiking or lounging. Although most past guests heaped praise on both eateries, a few desired tastier (and less expensive) options and faster service. To save some coin while staying here, members of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards program can use reward certificates to cover the cost of their rooms.

    West Bay Club
    Providenciales
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free Breakfast

    • Free Parking

    • Free WiFi

    Guests say that the Preferred-affiliated West Bay Club's suites feel like a home away from home. Maybe that's because they come appointed with kitchens or kitchenettes that can be stocked with groceries prior to arrival –if you opt (and pay) for it. Or maybe it's the free wireless internet access and flat-screen TV that keep you connected to the outside world. Once you venture outside your room, you'll be greeted by views of Grace Bay and central Provo – certainly a break from the ordinary. Get out and enjoy the Turks and Caicos scenery with complimentary beach lounge chairs, snorkeling gear or Hobie Cat sailboats. At night, the beach turns up the romance a notch; duos can schedule a private sunset dinner right on the sand. If you're having trouble deciding what to do, visitors recommend chatting with West Bay's helpful concierge, who can point you in the right direction. However, some say service from the housekeeping and waitstaff is off at times. Others lament the lack of an on-site spa. But remember, members of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards program can use rewards certificates to pay for suites here.

    Grand Isle Resort & Spa

    • Free Parking

    • Free WiFi

    Grand Isle Resort & Spa overlooks Emerald Bay from the island of Great Exuma in the Bahamas. Situated along a mile-long stretch of sand, this modern boutique resort is popular with honeymooning couples and guests seeking a relaxing, quiet getaway, thanks in part to its specialty offerings like couples spa treatments and private oceanfront dinners. In fact, the romantic retreat was featured on season 20 of the reality TV show "The Bachelor." But if you're traveling with little ones, don't fret: This waterfront oasis offers kid-friendly amenities, too, including free supervised children's activities, high chairs and an infinity-edge pool. For food, there's the Caribbean-focused Palapa Grill, which offers daily themed dinners like barbecue dishes on Thursdays and Italian fare on Saturdays. Though past diners said the restaurant's food was tasty, some felt meals were overpriced and bemoaned having to book reservations for dinner. If you forgot to make a reservation or want to save some money, each villa and penthouse (which can be paid for with an I Prefer Hotel Rewards certificate) has a kitchen for cooking. The one- to four-bedroom spaces also feature marble bathrooms, private patios or balconies, free Wi-Fi access and washers and dryers.
