Although an all-inclusive resort usually wouldn't be my first choice, Susan Lengyel at Sunsail made Club Colonna sound awfully enticing. Vacationers can choose accommodations ranging from a hotel room to an apartment or a villa. There are loads of boating options, including sailing lessons and free clinics on the beach every day, a bunch of dinghies and go-fast sailers at your disposal, or larger yachts with flotilla options.
The resort is kid-friendly, with childcare services and activities for ages four months to 17 years. There's a pool and a gym, to aid you in working off all those rum drinks, and a brand-new spa for pampering. As a general rule, I absolutely love anything with the word "spa" attached, even if the spa treatments cost extra. There's one restaurant at the club, and the vacation package includes three meals a day, which would be perfect if we brought along my twin sister, Kerry, my brother-in-law, Dan, and their adventurous sailors-in-training kids, Anastasia and Peter. This is Charlie's last choice-he's not a resort kind of guy-but it's a tough call.
