grenadines vacation questions

Jump to last reply

Okay, I've booked airfare, now on to deciding how long on each island. We'll going in early May and staying for 14 nights.

We'll be flying into Barbados and from there catching a plane to Union Island, and then a boat to Mayreau to stay at Saltwhistle Bay Club. We will probably stay there for 4 nights. I picked Saltwhistle Bay Club as it has intrigued me since I saw a brochure from there years ago. Also, Mayreau looks to be about the closest island to the Tobago Cays, making it most convient for day trips.

First, anyone stay at Saltwhistle Bay? Any comments as to good or bad about it, room preference, etc.?

After Mayreau, we'll fly to Bequia for four or five nights there most likely at the Frangipani. Picked there as it generally gets good reviews and I like the fact it is right in the middle of things. I have read that mosquitos can be an issue, but I imagine that could be true in lots of places.

Last, we'll take the ferry to St. Vincent to spend the balance of our vacation at Young Island. This is where we spent our honeymoon and we thought it nice to go back there again. We'll be staying here for five or six nights.

I think splitting up the two weeks between the three islands we'll give us a taste of the three islands, all somewhat differant from the other.

I've done a lot of reading on the islands and will continue to do so. Any input from people who've traveled there would be appreciated.
Thanks,
KathyH
