Just wanted to let you all in on our decision, after a huge dilemma and many hours reading your posts. Thanks to everyone who provided their feedback on their experiences.
We were really torn b'tween Buc and Caram. Ultimately, we decided on the Buc because of it's close proximity to everything on the island. We didn't want to be too remote and that was our main reason. We thought that the value was better at the C and likely to be less kids; but Jan isn't a real busy month for people w/families.
We also liked the idea of walking all over the place on the resort property and it seemed there was a lot of variety of where we could walk to - and felt our high teen handicaps would be more suited to the Buc's course. If we're feeling adventurous we'll check the c's course out as it looks cool.
We rented only a mountainview room, but we don't plan to be in our rooms much; We are also going to rent a jeep and explore the other beaches to snorkel and do some hiking. We don't like "canned" types of things, so the culture and no nightlife are right up our alley, but nor do we want to sit on the beach all day. We will probably check out the casino at least. If anyone has any other input, we'd appreciate it. It's not too late to change hotels.
