10. Sandals LaSource, Grenada

These couples-only properties take the term "all-inclusive" very seriously — so much so that, unlike most chains, golf, motorized water sports, and diving are wrapped into the room rate. Boasting private plunge pools, waterfalls, and river pools, this resort is a perfect place to decompress. (Doubles from $760; sandals.com)
