Question ID: 310926
hello! i stumbled upon this service and decided to give it a try. i searched through previously asked questions but found none relating to mine. however, that will allow me to be more specific for you. i attempted to do some research on a tropical destination and as you might imagine i was overwhelmed with info. maybe you can help me narrow things down. i will be going with a friend. we are both 26 year old single males, thus i am not interested in a couples or family oriented resort. on the same token, i am not interested in the likes of a Hedonism II either. i would prefer a nice mix of single females and personal space. this seems to be the most difficult criteria to search on. i am most interested in an all inclusive resort but if you happen to find other options, please advise. also, i should mention i have a mild disability known as Cerebral palsy aka, CP. this influnces my decision as well. as i said, it is mild, i can walk well, i drive, play golf, etc. with that in mind i am looking for a beach with little or no wave activity and minimal undertoe. that is very important to me. the picture i have in my mind is one with calm, crystal clear water that is waist deep for 50-100 yards off shore. (idealistic, i know!) also, i'd prefer a resort that is accessable. maybe one that has bungalows who's front door opens directly to the beach. or a resort that has a beach front first floor. again, this is the first i have used this. please, do not hesitate to ask for any further info from me! thanks much! Jay

Hello Jawdow101, Sometimes when you are looking for something very special like this, it is best to start with a forum rather than a search engine. I went to the Craigslist Travel Forum to see if anyone had asked a similar question about resorts for singles. From the thread linked to below I found a few good suggestions. http://forums.craigslist.org/?ID=8997088 Jona?s Ono Resort ? Fiji According to one review, this resort has a beach that is safe for kids to swim. It also sounds absolutely beautiful. 6 hand-made bures with direct beach access. The resort is marketed as mainly for diving, but it also sounds like it would meet your needs. A diving resort like this one is likely to draw a young single crowd. http://www.divekadavu.com/index.htm Review from Fijibeaches.com http://www.fijibeaches.com/kadavu/index.cfm Review from Fathomtravel.com http://fathomtravel.com/fiji/Kadavu/Jona's_Paradise_Resort.htm The Mauian, HI 44 Beachfront Studios. According to one Tripadvisor review, the beach is tranquil enough for non-swimmers and kids. One reviewer said: ?The hotel provides an intimate atmosphere that allows you to keep to yourself, but also contributes to a neighborly atmosphere amongst the guests.? http://www.mauian.com/ Excellent reviews at Tripadvisor.com http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g60634-d111826-r1628515-The_Mauian_Hotel_on_Napili_Beach-Lahaina_Maui_Hawaii.html _________________________________________ Other Ideas If you want to go with a large company, ClubMed.com allows you to search for facilities for adults only or with no children?s activities, as well as by activity: http://www.clubmed.com This diving school on St. Thomas has classes for divers with physical disabilities: http://www.aadivers.com/ They are located at the Secret Harbor Beach Resort (which sounds very couples-oriented) http://secretharbourvi.com/ One article I found mentioned Jamaica as a good destination for the 18-30 age group. The Beaches Royal Plantation is an all-inclusive adults-only resort with a golf course that gets excellent reviews: http://www.rghonline.com/articles/beachesroyal.asp Article on ?The Seven Ages of the Carribean? from Telegraph Group Unlimited: http://travel.telegraph.co.uk/travel/main.jhtml?xml=%2Ftravel%2F2003%2F02%2F11%2Fetcar09.xml I hope this provides you with some good suggestions. Please let me know if you need anything else by requesting clarification before rating this answer. Have a great trip! I?m jealous. Regards, Majortom
