I have posted a few threads about our upcoming trip and I think I have it narrowed down. We have been watching flight prices for a couple of weeks now from Portland, OR to STT. Flights started at $786 but today a flight popped up on Delta for $531 RT so I jumped on it! We depart Portland on Dec. 2nd, arrive in STT on December 3rd late afternoon and we will be exhausted from a full night and day of travel before we arrive by ferry into Tortola.
We were originally going to stay for a week at Sunset Apartments across the road from CGB. Perfect location, away from the noise and also kitchenettes to cook in. We were then thinking we would go to Heritage Inn for a few nights and then spend our final nights on JVD before heading home on the 18th.
Sunset is offering 7th night free and it is only $99 a night during the time we are there, plus 15% tax/service charge so a week there would cost us $684. Myett's is $130 a night plus 17% tax/service with no free 7th night so total for a week would be $1,065.
We will have a car for probably half the time.
Now come the questions!
1. Is Myett's really $381 nicer for a week? We are also figuring that we would spend less on food by staying at Sunset so staying at Myett's would cost us significantly more.
2. There are several car rental places that I have seen mentioned on this forum. Which one can you personally recommend? DeDe's is mentioned often but there are also some big players like Hertz and avis, I think? Any info for a company that would come get us at CGB for the rental would be desired.
3. How often do cruise ships dock on Tortola in December? This is a concern with the issue of hoards of "those cruise ship passengers" invading CGB and Myett's being right in the thick of things.
