The Caribbean means different things to different people. To some, it’s a place to bask under sunny skies as you relax beneath a palm tree, sipping your favorite cocktail. To others, it’s a place to fulfill an endless fascination with water sports. Others still enjoy floating from island to island on a cruise liner, when all you have to do is show up.

The Paradores hotels rewrite all these preconceptions – the group of truly unique properties scattered across Spain’s rural, unspoilt regions and towns introduce visitors to a history-rich Spain.
The gloomy weather was the perfect setting for a visit to this stone-walled fortress that William the Conqueror began to construct in the 1070s. After all, it is the scene of murder, mystery and beheadings. Yes, it also houses the Crown Jewels, but the stories of the people who lived, loved and died here can be much more interesting than valuable gems.
Sandals La Source Grenada is the newest of the Sandals resorts, and one of the most luxurious.
