The Caribbean ranks at the top in Destinations for Value, Romance, Family and Luxury Vacations According to

NEW YORK – TripAdvisor has announced its annual “Traveler’s Choice” Awards for 2009 and select properties in the Caribbean have ranked among the world’s best for value, romance, family, all-inclusive and luxury vacations.

The annual honors are a representation of the unbiased opinions of real travelers, awarded by the world’s largest online travel community.

The awards are given based on the consumer feedback of TripAdvisor’s more than 10 million members. Inclusion is reflective of the quantity and quality of reviews a hotel or resort receives. A wealth of Caribbean destinations were represented in 2009 including Aruba, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bonaire, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Martin and Turks and Caicos.

“TripAdvisor’s ‘Traveler’s Choice’ Awards are of particular importance to the Caribbean as they reflect the unfettered opinion of our guests without provocation or persuasion,” said Hugh Riley, interim secretary general of the Caribbean Tourism Organization. “We want to impress our guests with an authentic Caribbean experience that can’t be duplicated elsewhere in the world, whether they are looking for the perfect family, romantic or luxury getaway. This recognition proves that we are doing that and we thank our loyal guests for making their voices heard on our behalf.”
