Already spent months researching, figured I would ask for expert, experienced opinions now...We want clean, newer, or updated accommodations. NOT into old dusty wicker, golden girls 80's pastels, mold, bug havens, etc. Really on the fence about Caneel if its worth the $$. Thinking of Gallows Point-one of the newer updated condos there. Open to more suggestions... is there anything nicer that we are missing? Like the idea of snorkeling right outside our room. We would like a mini kitchen or at least mini fridge, which does not seem to be a standard in most Caneel rooms. Five star in the islands is a big difference than 5* in other locations, so I get that, we are adventurous, but I do not want to feel like I am camping while on vaca. We would like dinner/drink options within walking distance. Do not want to deal with car rental. Ability to walk to beaches or places to hike from the resort/hotel would be nice. Love to snorkel. Don't mind cooking breakfast/grabbing lunch out, or packing sandwiches from market/grocery store etc. I just don't want to feel like what I get is not worth the money...dont mind paying higher $ but it should be worth it! SO many mixed reviews on Caneel about how "dated" things are and really spread out, and the big draw there seems to be the beaches on property. Could we walk from Gallows to other beaches? Also would like to take a few day trips or day sails from St. John. (We are considering leaving Cruz for VG, maybe Little Dix (also on the fence about LDB) then for sure on to Scrub Island.--with post those related ?'s in BVI forum). Thanks!
