Dizzy with Decision

Jump to last reply

Trying to plan a mid June island trip for me, hubby and 2 sons (ages 16 and 19) Started with Jamaica, switched to St Lucia, then heard Aruba is can't miss ... then read all the love on here about T&C and it was contagious! Therein lies my decision dizziness. WIsh list (no particular order)

- A resort i.e. not interested in a villa
- Proximity to airport (don't want to spend a whole day traveling)
- Kitchen/kitchenette preferable (one son has food allergies so in room food prep is a help)
- More than one restaurant on site (better chance of finding one who can accommodate special meal requests (typically the bigger chains are better for this but wanted to avoid Beaches if I could)
- Proximity to a decent food market (same reason)
- Water sports - more than non motorized, esp jet skiing. Doesn't have to be on property but close proximity would be great.
- Would consider an AI but not a must
- Live music/nightlife (both boys are musicians so they would enjoy having music be a part of the vaca)
- SOME resort activities (doesn't have to be pool contests etc; maybe a beach BBQ/bonfire one night)
- Excursion potential (doesn't have to be too extreme --an ATV tour, trip to a waterfall etc)
- Direct flights from Philly preferred
- Trustworthy medical facilities nearby (I know this could probably be a whole topic in and of itself)

T&C sounds awesome ... just wondering if it will it be a tad "sleepy" for older boys. They're not thrill seekers... but our last trip was to Atlantis will could be a tough act to follow.

St Lucia: More interesting, topography, yes? Seems like there would be more excursion potential but might not be as good for the kitchen/food market criteria.

Aruba- Wasn't considering until a friend (with similar boys' ages) told me of his great experience in Jan -- Natural pool, etc. Also heard nightlife/activities were within walking distance if you pick the right resort. So....

If T&C -- Seven Stars vs Somerset (I like the idea of a food market close by for food allergy reasons so am leaning toward SS) I have ruled out Beaches.
If St Lucia - Windjammer Landing vs. The Landings vs ???
If Aruba - Hyatt vs. Occidental
