When to go: From December to March
Where to go: St. Thomas and St John Island
Downside: Not many attractions beside the beaches. The expensive hotel Ritz Carlton does not match anyone´s expectations.
Our Experiences: These Islands are beautiful. The Trunk Bay Beach in St Johns Island is one of the best in all Caribbean. It has been voted the world´s best beach several times. St Johns Island is barely inhabitated, and we just took a ferry to cross between the islands for a day tour. The main Island has some night live besides the beaches There is a nice marine park in Coki Beach, that is also a beautiful place. The capital Charlotte Amaly also has some historic spots to visit.
- The expensive US$ 700 a day hotel Ritz Carlton( Marriott Brand ) does not match our expectations. One thousand ramps and stairs beteween the pool/beach area and the rooms and the buildings had no elevators. ( ?!) The room furniture was simple and one level below any regular Marriott Hotel that would cost half the price.
Hotels we love and recommend: Not the Ritz Carlton (St Thomas).
