Honeymoon questions

We are thinking about going to St. Maarten/St. Martin for our honeymoon in mid October. We have a few questions we are hoping you could answer for us since we've never been there:

1. Hotel suggestion (on the beach, romantic, restaurant, spa, excursions)

2. What is the typical weather in mid October

3. Will there be any other visitors during this time

4. Is there plenty to do in and around the island

5. What is the best way to get to St. Maarten from Atlanta

I'm sure we'll have plenty of other questions. We appreciate your help!!

Congratulations & Best Wishes

1) Sonesta Maho has the most action.

2) Sunny & Warm

3) Yes, quite a few but overly busy.

4) Yes, day & night action, Check K-Pasa Magazine for current events. Free at the airport or hotel.

5) Don't know - check with your air carrier or travel agent and wait for more replies.

First of all contratulations in advance.

1) I prefer the Simpson Bay area. Royal Palm, Atrium, Flamingo,Pelican and La Vista. All but LaVista have own beach but all are close to night life and restaurants.

2) Usually hot with humidity but not too noticable becaose of the trade winds. Have to be aware there could be some severe weather in that time period.

3) Not considered a high time but visitors come all year long.

4) Lots of things to do. Check out www.stmaarten-activities.com

5) Best way is by comercial Air. Had tio say that.

Glad to be of help.

Also be aware that it is still hurricane season, and anything can happen. Buy trip insurance. Congratulations
