St. Martin(Grand Case Beach Club vs. St. Lucia (WIndjammer)

We are thinking of going to Grand Case Beach Club (St. Martin) or St. Lucia (WIndjammer Landing) the first week in August, 2011 . We have 2 daughters, 17 and 19 accompanying us. Both look great and we can't decide. (also Aruba Marriott Surf Club is another possibility) Any thoughts on how these resorts are in August. We are looking for nice beaches, water activities, etc.

We just can't decide and would love to hear the pros and cons. Also , how crowded they are during the August months.

Really appreciate any feedback. Thank you so much!!!!!

GCBC is perfect! They have water activities right there. It is gated and secure with a nice beach. There is a lovely restaurant on site with free continental breakfast. August won't be crowded. A short walk to all the great restaurants in Grande Case. Rent a car and explore all the other beautiful beaches and actrivities.

We agree with the previous poster-GCBC is a better choice. Great beach, easy to get around. Orient Beach, not far away, is beautiful and has activities. Renting a car and going around the island is easy to do.

We stayed at Windjammer last year. It is a beautiful resort, but the beach is ok and nothing is within walking distance. If you are not in any of the lower suites, you need to take an internal bus up and down the resort, it's on a hillside. Wait times are not bad, but you are dependent on them to get to the beach and restaurants. Plus, if you do rent a car, the driving is on the left and if you haven't done that before, it can be quite the experience. If you get a car there are plenty of restaurants in Rodney Bay, which isn't too far from Windjammer and you drive on a good road.

Enjoy!
