Family Vacation March 2013....Which Island?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! We have 6 nights and 7 days to vacation in March. My parents, my brother and wife along with my husband and I will be taking the trip together. My parents are very healthy and active. The other four of us are in our late 20's and early 30's. Our family vacation has ALWAYS been in the Bahamas at the Atlantis. We have stayed in every part of the resort, but recently since the Cove has opened that has been our spot. We have finally been able to get my parents to agree that change is good! We love the Bahamas but its time for a new island for this vacation. We have discussed Turks & Caicos, St Thomas (The Ritz Hotel because we can use points), and Grand Cayman (The Ritz because we can use points) We have AMEX & Marriott Pts.

Here's a little info about my family: Our island trips during the day are spent either lounging on the beach or at the pool, swimming, snorkeling & water sports, relaxing, little sightseeing, sipping island drinks.
We all LOVE visiting the spa for treatments and to use their facilities. We also LOVE to use the gym. So the spa/gym is important.
Before dinner we like to enjoy a few cocktails together, have great food at dinner, drinks and a little night life after. (This does not mean a dance club or crazy night time atmosphere) We are perfectly fine with grabbing a few cocktails at a hotel bar or a fun spot with live music.

We will be coming from the NYC area and would prefer to visit an island that requires just one nonstop flight. Out of the three islands I have named which would be a good option for us? Or do you have any other island vacation ideas for us to look into?
Thanks for all your help! My parents will also appreciate the help!
