We've done the math and realize that taxi's would cost us a fair bit .We can live with that , but generally we like the convenience of a car when travelling. Let me give you all part of our plans(we'll be at Frenchmans cove for 7 nights, then the Ritz for 2 nights)....off property dinners while at the Marriott will likely include Oceana, Herve, Room with a View.......we'll likely go to Magens Bay, and St John(once each) and to Gourmet Gallery twice, and of course we'll have to transfer from the airport, to the Ritz and back to the airport.(while at the Ritz we'll likely just dine onsite although we may try East End Cafe). We wont likely do anything else except perhaps go into town once for shopping but knowing us once we're in the vacation mode we tend to stick to the beaches etc at our own property, and we could end up skipping Magens Bay, and St John and simply stay put(we have been to both once before )....so would you rent a car? taxi? what about all the posts that say dont go into Charlotte Amalie at night and 2 of our dinners would be there....taxi those nights even if we do rent a car? Forgetting the cost part of the equation, what would be more convenient for us?
