Las Casitas, Westin St John, Surf Club

Jump to last reply

My wife and I used to like to stay in more upscale hotels such as Ritz Carltons in Palm Beach, San Juan, Naples, etc. Now that we have two young children, we have different priorities. We stayed in a one bedroom villa at the Marriott Ocean Club in Aruba. It was nice, my daughter loved it, my son had a babysitter arranged by the Marriott.
Once a family of four stays in a one or two bedroom villa, it is impossible to go back to a regular room. With that in mind, we were thinking of such places as Las Casistas or the Westin St John. Both seem to have negatives and positives (no beach at Casitas, people say food *#$*$, expensive even for a NYer, etc)---Westin (takes forever to get there--my wife gets sea sick). Want a one or two bedroom for a relatively reasonable price (I think Casitas are about $500 peak)--lots to do, maybe a kids camp + babysitting so wife and I can relax (haven't slept in 12 1/2 mos). Suggestions for villas on a nice island (not attracted to Jamaica or Dominican), snorkling, pool is key. Casistas may be my best bet or just go back to Aruba. What I do for my kids...
