Think a tropical beach vacation is totally out of your budget? Don’t count dipping your toes in the water out just yet. Thanks to a little help from TripAdvisor, we’ve rounded up the best of the best in terms of ocean-view rooms that won’t break the bank. Here are ten destinations you should book, ASAP. (And don’t forget to pack the sunscreen!)
Ports of Call Resort in Turks and Caicos
This three-star resort is located right on Grace Bay, making it the perfect place for anyone looking to talk a long walk along a perfectly white beach. When you’re ready to take a break from all those postcard-perfect views, check out one of the six delicious restaurants on-site. (Psst: Our favorite is Giggles Ice Cream Parlor.)
Rooms starting at $270 per night
Beco de Noronha Pousada in Brazil
While the accommodations are not right up on the beach, the hotel’s secluded location and surrounding greenery make for a quiet, intimate getaway for anyone looking to avoid the crowds. As for nearby waves, you can’t beat the hidden gem that is Baia do Sancho, just a short drive away.
Rooms starting at $297 per night
Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort in Aruba
Stunning turquoise waters? Check. Eco-friendly, beach-front rooms? You know it. All-inclusive packages with the works? Of course. It’s really no wonder that this Eagle Beach resort has attracted a loyal following of repeat visitors over the years.
Rooms starting from $298 per night
Compass Point Dive Resort in the Cayman Islands
Here, you can sit out of the pool or walk 30 feet and dip your toes right in the ocean. But if you’re looking for a bit more adventure, there are kayaks, diving, parasailing and even a giant inflatable raft park for the kids right on Seven Mile Beach.
Rooms starting from $250 per night
Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra in Donostia, Spain
Travelers looking to do a little swimming and a little sightseeing, look no further than this European resort. You won’t have to fear growing bored reading that steamy romance novel politically apropos memoir on the beach, because the charming Basque hotel is just a short walk from a modern city center and historic old town.
Rooms starting from $172 per night
Fifrefly Beach Cottages in Jamaica
Whether you choose to stay in a suite, penthouse or studio, every single room comes with a sunny veranda. We repeat: Every. Single. Room. The laid-back vibe of the resort is best for those looking to really sit back and relax (with the help of a spa treatment or two, of course).
Rooms starting from $67 per night
Pier House 60 Marina Hotel in Clearwater, Florida
There is no shortage of breathtaking views, yummy restaurants or lively bars at this Clearwater Beach hotel, no siree. Reviews call it a “hidden gem” right across the street from the water, but we’re more inclined to call it home to our next girls' trip.
Rooms starting from $293 per night
Ocean Blue & Sand in the Dominican Republic
Sick of staring at those mind-blowingly blue waters? Um, never Yeah, us too, which is why we were so happy to learn that Ocean Blue also has a golf course, casino, spa, dive center and children’s clubhouse. You know, just in case.
Rooms starting from $204 per night
Hotel Bucaneros Hotel & Suites in Isla Mujeres, Mexico
This darling family-run, 17-room hotel is located in the heart of downtown Isla Mujeres. Reviewers love that it’s equidistant from the pristine Playa Norte on one side and a slew of shops and cafés on the other. Plus, with the original owners and their family still running the show, it’s hard not to feel like you’re right at home.
Rooms starting from $90 per night
Lahaina Shores Beach Resort in Lahaina, Hawaii
It really doesn’t matter if you book a water- or mountain-view room because either way you’ll be greeted with an Insta-perfect panorama every single morning. And while both the resort and the nearby historic town of Lahaina have plenty of family-friendly activities (like beginner surf lessons), we 100 percent recommend looking into the hotel’s babysitting services when you and your partner need a little alone time sans children.
Rooms starting from $289 per night
