First time to St Maarten - Need recommendation

Visiting St Maarten with my girlfriend Dec 31st to Jan 7th. We have booked our flight and looking at rentals now. Leaning toward staying at Orient bay by Orient Village but not sure after reading about all the naked people. We're not nudist so I'm not sure if its going to be weird or not. The reason why we were looking at Orient Bay is because most comments say its the best beach in St Maarten. I like the idea of the beach bars for lunch and/or relaxing on the beach with a cooler.

We're a young 30's couple and definitely like to go out to have a good time but I'm just wondering if Grand Case might better or simpson bay? Any thoughts?
