Caribbean islands recomendation

Hi,

We are looking to visit caribbean island(s) end of November/ early December and will be going for a week. We are in yearly 30s and traveling without kids. Looking for combination of great beaches and restaurants. Night life is a plus. So far we stayed on the following islands:

St Marteen
St Barts
Anguilla
St Thomas

We paired up 2 islands in 1 week in the past (e.g. St Marteen + St Barts) and liked it a lot. Please suggest which island(s) we should visit next.

Thanks

much simpler in my opinion to take a royal caribbean cruise.unpack only once,if weather turns bad on one island you aren't stuck there,the best meals,art and entertainment,including nightlife are found onboard.we also like puerto rico for all varieties of entertainment,great food,shopping,partying if desired and safety.love and highly recommend grand caymen,cozumel,been there multiple times,safe,variety of activities,lots of fun, but these are western caribbean.do not recommend jamaica at all,also been there multiple times in multiple areas, basically unsafe and high potential to be limited to where you go anywhere in jamaica d/t high crime.even greatest resorts are protected with armed officers or hired gunmen and it is recommended to not go outside of most resorts.you will probably find more variety in puerto rico according to the descript of what you are looking for.have you been to key west,fla?lots of fun and night life of all kinds there! have fun wherever you go!

As you are 30 somethings, a cruise might be for you. However, IMO you should island hop and stay for as long as you like. Ships can be confining (not just the rooms) plus even though the ships are huge, there is no where to go without being joined by others. A quiet evening by the pool or on deck is never quiet. If you like lush, tropical scenery St. Lucia could be for you..beaches aren't as great as Provo but it's a beautiful island. Also how about Nevis or Saba? Both wonderful spots. Have fun deciding.
