Considering a trip 2015

Hi,

We are beginning to research our next vacation and are hoping we can get some advice.

I've been doing some reading about the island and about some of the resorts. What are your opinions regarding the best places to stay? We are divers and will probably want to do a few dives, however, we do not mind driving to a dive shop if necessary.

Your advice on condo rentals and resorts? What about proximity to restaurants?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You guys are great......all your thoughts and suggestions are exactly what we needed! We will probably be looking at the west end since we are divers, but I am planning to research everything you've suggested.

Thanks Again.....

And of course there is Carambola at the edge of the lush rainforest in the middle of nowhere. Nice beach, nice recently renovated pool, a couple of restaurant options, nice upscale suites which have been renovated over the past several years and have full kitchens, well maintained landscaping, and of course the shore diving and maybe a little less expensive than the bucaminute. You definitely want a car to stay there but at least they don't charge extra for parking like the buc does or did. And forget about using your cell phone there but they have WIFI.

We love the Carambola and just scored a good deal on AA Vacations for a visit in January. This will be our 8th time to STX. The units are refurbished with full kitchens and we love the screened porch. The beach is never crowded, although it's recommended that you only enter the ocean at the far end of the beach, due to sea urchins. There is a dive shop at the Carambola but close by is Cane Bay. Have lunch or dinner at Eat @Cane Bay or Rowdy Joe's. We recommend Angry Nate's on the boardwalk in Christiansted, too. We love renting a car and exploring the entire island.
