PSV vs. Palm Isl. vs. Young Isl

My husband and I are planning a special holiday to celebrate our 50th's and are looking for a quiet, more private resort. PSV, Young Island, Palm Island have been suggested. Does anyone have feedback or recommendations? Thanks.

You should check out scubamom.com..she reviews all of the above..seemingly unbiased and lots of detail.

OK I'll bite. We stayed at PSV in April 96 & loved it. We did not have the same bad experience as others have mentioned. Gracious staff, great early morning coffee, hot breakfast, made to order at the precise time asked for. We walked everywhere around the island, if you have any physical limitations it could be a bit of a problem. I do agree the food was not outstanding but it was always hot, on time & good. And that is just me, food is lower on my list of priorities. The flag system was great for us. Total privacy but anytime we put it out within 20 minutes we had back our request for lunch or coolers of beers whether we wanted it delivered to our beach or patio or wherever we happened to be. Never had to request the essentials. We had a very private special time together there, relaxing & so quiet we slept like babies. We went in Apirl, prices were cheaper & weather was great. We would return. Visited Palm Island but that was before change of hands. It is flat (compared to PSV's hills)& in eyesight of Union Island. We looked into Young Island but by all the pictures it didn't look secluded enough for us. Actually the best quiet private resorts are in the South Pacific but you said you had Barbados tickets already. What about Carenage Bay? Haven't been but it is in the right vicinity & looks good. We're going to Cayo Espanto off Belize in April so will report back on that! Good luck with your planning!

Yes, Peggy did bring up the point that I should have made about the transportation as we had, due to the location of our cottage, to rely on the staff to transport due to ambulation problems. We had requested specific locations due to that and would have chosen elsewhere if they had not told us that would not be a problem when I made the reservation explaining the situation. They did move us from the original land-locked cottage at the far end from the beach but we still had much too long of a walk to enjoy an "independent" spirit. If we had been closer to the beach huts or nearer the pavillion, I think we would have been much happier, could have walked the short distance and not so frustrated by having to requisition every move. I am really envious of those who had much better stays but then, when one thing goes wrong, it always seems to set off a chain of events!

We loved Young Island, however that was about ten years ago, so can't give you current info. The outdoor showers were very romantic, the five kinds of bread at meals were delicious (served in tiki huts by the water). It was quiet and very private. The only thing that might interrupt total privacy, was that many of the cottages face the little harbor between Young and the mainland. A couple dozen private yachts anchor there, so there's good people watching, but it does cut back a little on privacy. I would go again. St. Vincent is awesome, huge volcano, very un-touristy. Do a search and you may find my older posts giving more details... Happy 50th!
