Alamanda, westin or Divi?

I can't choose between the 3 . I have been to many islands but never here. We like a good beach and nice accommodations . We also like to people watch so not a totally quiet beach . I am running out of time booking.

My vote would be for Alamanda. It's on Orient Beach which will fit your bill for people watching. And you have Orient Village for dining. Divi is on Little Bay which is still close to restaurants in Simpson Bay and Philipsburg. I would not recommend the Westin due to its isolation on Dawn Beach.

Didn't you say Divi was sold out for your dates? Well. if you can get it - okay - also Alamanda on Orient is another good choice, Sonesta Great Bay is down the hill from Divi near to town - Westin is on Dawn beach -

The divi has rooms available now. This whole process is confusing. do I go all inclusive and is the sonesta grand bay worth the money for all inclusive. Is food expensive on the island

This in not a big all-inclusive island - far too many good restaurants - dining out ranges from inexpensive to very expensive, food shopping is not bad at all if you stay in a apartment with kitchen and eat some meals in.

can only speak to Westin, it's a bit out of the way for getting in and out but the resort itself is great and has a casino and great piece of dawn beach, great pool, bar and restaurant and near more restaurants on the OBBR inlet and Oyster Bay, easy parking. it's more remote than the one on Orient Beach but it's a great spot.

I actually was driving myself crazy. I decided on the royal palm resort. I'm hoping we made the right choice. We shall see ! We leave Dec 19th. I never have problems making a decision but this one drove me crazy! Hopefully it's the right one.

Thanks for responding. What made you choose Royal Palm? I've just thrown that one into the mix today. I also don't know why I'm having so many problems deciding. Will you be renting a car?
