With its Pride & Joy Couples Package, the Caribbean beach resort, located on Piscadera Bay, lets gay and lesbian vacationers experience that atmosphere and the island firsthand.

The 247 rooms and suites with tranquil blue hues boast private balconies or terraces where guests can relax with a glass of wine before heading to bed for a sound night’s sleep on cotton-rich sheets and plenty of fluffy pillows.
