I was in St Maarten this past July and fell in love with it so I am going back in November to celebrate my birthday. With your help I stayed at the Pelican Marina Residences and loved it! I liked that it was in the mix of things, but spent most of time (just about everyday) at Orient Beach. My dilemma is that I got a very good at the Radisson, (the Pelican Marina is more expensive this time around). I am wondering if I should give the Radisson a try or pay more money for the Pelican. I am concerned about that the Radisson is isolated.
For this trip I of course would like to go to back to Orient, Baie Rouge and try out Anguilla and Mullet Bay (missed it the last time). I am more interested in cheap eats. I found a great Dominican restaurant and love the breakfast at Pelican and Zee Best.
1. Are there any cheap eats on the French side like the Dutch (besides lolos)?
2. Is the Radisson really that isolated? I am comfortable driving around the island.
3. Any advice would be appreciated
