We are arriving in St. Thomas on Dec. 20 and plan to head to Road Town, Tortola, on the (last) ferry so that we are ready to board our (captained) sailing trip at noon on Dec 21 at Village Cay at the marina in Road Town. We are looking for a hotel in Road Town for the night of Dec. 20. Any ideas which hotels would be really convenient to this marina AND would let us just stay one night (tho we will need 3 rooms for us and the grown kids and spouses)?
On the other end of the trip, we want to spend the night of Dec. 28 in Charlotte Amalie so we'll be able to catch our flight back on Dec 29 to the US without having to worry about ferry delays, etc. Any thoughts on a hotel convenient to the airport that will allow just a one-night stay (tho, again, 3 rooms)?
Also -- any advice on whether to take the fast ferry or the slow ferry? And which companies?
