Any ideas where I can go for warm vacation 3-4 hour flight from NY where I can have a 5* villa with private pool and private beach?
Hard to find, mainly in Caribbean.
Places like this https://www.oceanoasiscayman.com, but they aren't cheap.

No idea although quite possibly. I was simply stating that there are hundreds of others besides the Maldives (where most here dont even get a private beach).

Well, you start off by saying that it was not about the hotel and then you explaining all the problems about hotel. Find a hotel where you don't have to catch a spot 7am by the pool..

What does the hotel have to do with everything feeling like a money, tourist trap  (actually except for the hotel where I didn't get that vibe) and the hotel can't change that.  Listen, I love Vegas but I wasn't expecting Vegas at the beach when I went to Cancun and wished someone had told me that ahead so I'm just sharing my impressions.

Of course there are. I just need a good recommendation. And I did not mention points as Emkay pointed out.

airbnb then Just pick your island. Every island has private but you have to pay
Good hard cash.
No points.

5* Villa, at least to me, implies hotel, not airbnb/vrbo etc.

Finding kosher and shul is not always so easy, and probably would help to spell that out initially.

If you can do private pool in a house/"villa", and don't need the beach, try Orlando. There's a small community with a restaurant or two or three.

You should be able to find a very nice property, tons of space, but a beach is harder.
