Planning a trip to the sunny Caribbean is always a good idea, but that doesn’t mean you can afford to go each time you get the urge. Not only do you have to pay for the plane ride to your tropical destination, but you have to fork over cash for a stay in a hotel, a resort or a vacation rental. On top of that, you’ll have food, drinks, entertainment and excursions to cover, plus tips for all the people that carry your bags and serve you throughout your trip.
Fortunately, there’s one easy way to pay for one of the biggest components of your Caribbean getaway — your resort. Just like you can use airline miles to cover international airfare, you can begin racking up hotel loyalty points or flexible rewards points for stays in a range of Caribbean properties you’ll absolutely love.
While some of the Caribbean resorts you can book with points include your hotel stay only, others are all-inclusive, meaning all your food, drinks and entertainment are included, too. Either way, booking a hotel with points can help you save big on lodging, freeing up cash for other parts of your vacation.
While there are easily hundreds of hotels in the Caribbean that are bookable with points, we highlighted some of the best options available in this guide. Read on to learn how you can use points to visit resorts like the Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall in Jamaica, the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino on the island of Aruba and the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in the Bahamas, to name a few.
