Thanks so much for all your comments and suggestions- they are all very helpful. We have decided to delay our trip until the first week in March since there does seem to be greater availability. Just a few more questions:
Has anyone booked Caneel Bay through Tingo? Pricing seems to be somewhat more competitive. I am wondering what the pros/cons are of booking with them versus through the hotel directly.
Also, can one walk into Cruz Bay from Caneel Bay? Finally, does Caneel Bay take room/area requests? If so, any suggestions are appreciated.
