We stayed in Casa Martin in West Bay Village in early September. The location is outstanding and offers easy access to snorkeling, diving and water taxi. I cannot comment on other properties, but Casa Martin is well maintained and less than 100' from the water's edge. Crowds were not an issue although there were still plenty of vendors trying to sell services/souvenirs. They will take no for an answer though and it didn't really impact our vacation.
There is an issue with biting insects on the island, however this was more of a nuisance and also didn't have a significant negative impact. Wear insect repellant on your feet.
Bring plenty of small bills for tips and services (e.g. water taxi, dive tips etc.) I incorrectly assumed that we would be able to use credit cards more often.
Everything considered, this was an outstanding vacation in a great location.
