Although I remain a big Anguilla fan, I am thinking of trying St. Bart's in November.
I like the look and convenience of St Jean and am checking out Les Islets de la Plage and Hotel Emeraude Plage. Do any of you have thoughts about these? I know Eden Rock is right there, but it seems a bit expensive for what I want for this trip. Les Islets is sold out for the specific time I wanted to go, but I could rearrange things if it is that much better. Are there other places I should be considering?
On Anguilla, I like Mead's Bay for walking and because of the restaurants. I've stayed at Cusinart, Cap J, Carimar and Turtle's Nest and hope to find something on St. B that will provide a similar (but different) experience. (Maybe not quite Cap Juluca.)
I originally posted this on the AXA forum and got some good feedback, but they also suggested I post here as well. I'd love to hear about your experiences with the hotels, walkable restaurants and shops in the area as well as any tips you can share.
Thanks in advance.
