USVI itinerary advice - 3 weeks

My husband & 6 yr old son are spending 3 weeks in the USVI in August. We currently have booked week #2 in a villa on st John near Rendezvous Bay & week #3 at Caneel Bay. We are debating what to do with our other week (week 1). Some options we've considered include 1 week at Ritz St Thomas or an additional week at villa or Caneel on St John. Purpose of this trip is primarily relaxation & snorkeling. We don't mind moving around. Would appreciate any advice! Thanks!

I also wonder if we should consider a week on one of the BVI? It would have to be easily accessible from st Thomas as we don't want to travel too far once we get there!

there are some wonderful villas on virgin gorda at mahoe bay. several are directly beachfront, with more in 3-5 mins walk. this link shows most of the houses: (sorry the link is so long)

mahoe has excellent walkin snorkeling. vg is a lot like st. john in appearance. very laid back & relaxing. all the bvi are accessible by ferry from st. thomas. it may be more efficient for you to ferry to road town, tortola then over to virgin gorda. here's the ferry schedule: http://www.vinow.com/general_usvi/interisland_ferry/
it is possible to fly from st. thomas to virgin gorda on http://www.airsunshine.com/STT-VIJ.htm however it is not known to be the most reliable airline.

the ritz is super nice with infinity pool, nice view from the beach & their boat the lady lynsey. snorkeling not the best off their beach. i would pick 2 weeks at caneel rather than 1 at caneel & 1 at the ritz. caneel is a wonderfully unique resort with 7 great beaches on the property.
