Spoiled By Seven Stars! Which resort to choose next?

My husband and I traveled to Provo last year. We stayed at Seven Stars and were absolutely SPOILED! We loved it so much! We fell in love with Provo and are planning our next trip but are torn in deciding if we should try another resort this year. There are so many to choose from it's hard to decide and get a feel for the atmosphere of a resort based on the website.

Can anyone weigh in on the overall vibe of several beachfront properties on Grace Bay? Windsong vs Somerset vs Grace Bay Club vs Villa Renaissance vs Regent Palm vs Verandah vs Point Grace ?!!?!?

We would like a place that offers balcony beach front views and has a full kitchen with appliances so we can cook some of our own meals.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated!
Many Thanks!

Of your choices...we have stayed at The Somerset & Regent Palms..both are fantastic, great staffs, beautifull suites and nice wide beachfronts. Beautiful kitchens in both and can walk to many restaurants nearby,

Windsong- lower price point than the others, stunning bathrooms, close to off the beach snorkeling

Somerset-absolutely the prettiest architecture on island, gorgeous! Closer to hub, classic elegance, huge rooms, gorgeous kitchens

Grace bay Club- huge property made up of 3 different sections, similar to a Four Seasons (the most expensive of your choices)

VR- gorgeous pool! Quiet, more self catering yet luxurious, walking distance to numerous places

Regent Palms- upscale family resort, gorgeous rooms, see and be seen crowd

Veranda- all inclusive, like a four Seasons, yet quiet but luxurious. But so many excellent restaurants on island, why limit?

point Grace- stunning zen like ultra quiet property, very boutique and romantic.

And tocconfuse you more, might as well throw in West Bay Club- for the price point it's a stunning property! Less expensive than all your other choices, yet gorgeous and luxurious.

Can't really go wrong with any of them! Sometimes I get so crazy trying to choose, I split my trip with 2. Ends up feeling like 2 vacations!

You are welcome, we spent our honeymoon at Regent Palms loved it but, went next door to Somerset to look at suites...fell in love and went back there many times...love both though! The beach in front of these two is so flat and wide FYI .

We haven't stayed at either, but my wife and I both agreed that the Somerset, and the Regent Palms are two of the nicest looking hotels on Grace Bay. My wife liked the small shops at the Regent Palms. Very nice.
