Ritz St. Thomas or Westin St. John - with kids

We have three children (ages 7 and 4). Looking for a 2 bedroom villa located within a resort with restaurants and beaches. Loved Windjammer Landing in St. Lucia a few years ago, but they have no availability this time around. We are willing to look at other options besides the Ritz or Westin. We are even willing to look at different islands. Advice?

I am no expert, but look at the Marriot Frenchmans Reef or Morningstar Resort on STT. I think they have timeshares there also.

BTW, Westin on STJ is very kid friendly too.

Nicest area of St Thomas used to own a condo there

But St John prettiest island beaches vibe for kids

We stayed at both places with our three kids who were a little older than yours. Definately preferred the Westin to the Ritz with the kids. The manmade beach wasn't an issue for us. The 2 bedroom villas were great. St. John was a nicer island overall.
