We decided to stay at The Sands. We originally booked a 3 bedroom suite at OCW, but the other family backed out.
After researching it a lot, we decided it would be better to stay at The Sands. We reserved a 2 bedroom oceanview suite. I emphasized I woudd rather a 2nd or 3rd floor. (OK, don't laugh - I am really afraid of lizards, and figure they won't get in my room up there!!). Nicola took care of me, and said I was not the only lady to feel that way! :)
Nicola was a doll - when she heard I had 2 teen boys, she said she'd get us a suite with 2 twins, so they didn't have to share a bed.
I am really excited!! I think having the free kayaks, windsurfers, & Hobie Cats is a plus, as my 2 boys love that stuff!
They've never been to the Caribbean before. My one son is graduating from high school, & this is part of his present. Neither wanted a big loud place. They wanted a smaller resort, with beautiful beaches & water, some nice pools & lots of water sports. We will definitely be spending a few days snorkeling & scuba diving.
The Sands has a summer special....pay for 5 nights, get 2 more free (total 7 nights). OCW had that same deal.
Sorry for the lengthy post - just super excited!
