Best Marriott or Hilton in the Caribbean

Jump to last reply

Looking ahead to next winter break for our family. We will have time at christmas time to spend a week away on an island. We will have two college kids. Can be before christmas or new years week as well.
Have points at Marriott and Hilton for a free week. What in your opinion is the best resort Marriott or Hilton in the Caribbean?
Have been to Aruba Marriott -twice and that is a nice way to spend points, but DH wants to go somewhere he hasn't been.
Been to Cayman Marriott-small but nice. Been to Caribe Hilton Puerto Rico.

Need a new island and resort to try out. I have also looked at the Hilton Cabo San Lucas. That seems far enough away from the troubled areas of Mexico. Any one been to this resort? Also, Costa Rica might be a thought. there is a big Marriott there...

Looking at the Virgin Islands, there is the frenchman's reef on St Thomas. It says it has had a large renovation. Has anyone stayed there recently? I have heard negative reviews concerning the staff there being not that friendly...
Curacao Marriott is showing no availability for points at christmas time...not sure if it is too early or already booked.
There is a hilton Barbados... ? Anyone And last there is a new marriott on a private island in the british islands, but not sure if that is a couples retreat or not, all king sized beds.
Thanks all!
Oh me and the girls like to relax on the beach. DH is go go go with wanting to do stuff. So, a mix of some beach time and some activities would be good.
