Turks and Caicos, where to stay

I have stayed at the Sands which I thought was a great value but may want something new.
We are staying at the Villa Renaissance for a few nights and then I am considering
Seven Stars, Villa Neptune or Sands.

Is Villa Neptune going to be too isolated? We are quiet, non-partying folks.
Thanks.

PS we will be there Dec.6-13, weather predictions?

If you like to walk the Grace Bay Beach you will miss that at Neptune. We would be bored there--there are only private homes near Neptune & the only restaurant is right there at the Villas. On Grace Bay as you know -- you have many restaurants and the walking I mention above. I would stay at the Sands, 7 Stars is nice but huge & not my fav .
Weather ? should be fine, hurricane season will be over & the resorts will be getting ready for "busy season"

Why not just stay at VR? It's gorgeous and centrally located.

My opinion, Sands is a step down
Villa Neptune is a step down
Seven Stars is a step up, but is walking distance from VR (a couple of blocks) so why move?

Because there is no availability at the VR for my other nights that is in my price range. The suite I am booked into only has the first 4 nights available.
I like changing hotels anyway, I pack light.

Is it likely to be very busy at these places from 12/6-`12/13?
The only things we did not like about the Sands were noisy people on their balconies and some difficulty obtaining chairs.
I thought the grounds were very tropical and lovely, the beach itself wide and not crowded apart from chair, loungers a bit crappy. WE did like Hemingways.

No, went with the Sands. Just too good of a price to say no to!
Sort of averaged out the cost of the VR!
