What a fabulous vacation!

Jump to last reply

We have been back from our vacation now for two weeks and I just wanted to post to say what a fabulous time we had in St. Martin. First off, for those of you who are worried about the crime and safety on the island we took the normal precautions and we didn't have any problems and felt quite safe during our stay. We did stay on the Dutch side in the Pelican Key area and found it to be quite accommodating and totally safe.
The island was so much fun and the beaches and the water were so beautiful. We did rent a car and we were definitely glad we did as we found ourselves spending most of our beach days on the French side. We really enjoyed Orient beach, Baie Rouge and Pineal was just fantastic! I do believe I am spoiled though and the thought of visiting any of the beaches here in the U. S. just doesn't cut it anymore.
We definitely plan on returning, hopefully next year but we are thinking maybe we would like to stay on the French side. David SXM, you have been a wealth of information to me prior to our trip so I am looking to you again to get advice where we could stay on the French side if we return next year. How is Grand Case Beach Club? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
As I reflect on our time in St. Martin I can definitely say without a doubt it was the best trip my husband and I have ever taken. We created memories that we will have for a lifetime and someday we hope to bring our older children with us to experience the beauty of this lovely island.
I find myself missing it and day dreaming about the future and what it holds. I sure hope a trip to SXM is not far off. Till we meet again........
