Just returned from an amazing week:
Stayed at Grande Bay - location, location, location! Couldn't have been happier.
Jeep rental - St John car rental. Great, friendly people running this establishment.
Sam & Jacks Deli for beach lunches is fantastic. No comparison between that and Deli Grotto
Cocktails - Motu was our fave but can't beat the prices at Beach Bars Happy Hour
Restaurants - Never had a bad meal but ZoZo's ( LOVE new location) & Terrace were our faves. Also ate at Beach Bar, Joes Rum Hut, Cruz Bay Landing, Rhumblines, lunch at Caneel Bay Restaurant (can't remember name) Banana Deck, La Tapa. La Tapa was our least favorite. Wasn't bad but the others were better. We ate there on our last visit ten years ago and thought thought the same thing.
Snacks - Our Market Smoothies is fantastic and Thomas is amazing. St John Scoops - ok but nothing spectacular. The gelato at Caneel Bay is cheaper and much better!
Beaches - Trunk, Cinnamon, Hawksnest, Honeymoon, Gibney, Maho, Francis, Hawksnest - loved all. Mosquitos were awful but the incredible weather made it ok.
Excursion -Pirates Penny / Stormy Petrel day trip to Baths, Cooper Island, JVD...fantastic! Highly recommend!
Absolutely amazing week with fantastic weather! Now back to reality
