We're also Club Orient fans, and were scheduled to go there in Nov. It's where we're happiest. Instead, we have booked 10 days at The Natural in Curacao - going in March. We just did a search (Bing) of c/o in Caribbean, and read nothing but positive reviews. No official c/o beach, but possibly an unofficial one.

I checked out their website and tried to get more information about the resort. Without any first hand knowledge the website for The Natural makes it appear that it may cater to lifestyle guests, which my wife and I are definitely not part of. I'm leaning toward Couples San Souci in April for our first C/O venture.

Honestly, for April, I wouldn't book somewhere else YET... If all you want is a c/o beach and don't have to stay at Club O, the BEACH there should be clean by April. And there will be SOME lodgings available on the island. I think it's ambitious, but Beachside Villas says they will be open by November 1. And a lot of other places say they will be available by January 1. Maybe actually DO bring a bunch of food, etc., but by April, the experience will not be anywhere near the same, but if all you want is the best c/o beach on the planet, I wouldn't book somewhere else yet.. I doubt there will be many (if any) gourmet restaurants available and there still will be a lot of damage evident everywhere. If you want a regular vacation experience as you have in the past, it won't be available in April, but you will be able to enjoy the beach...

OK, thanks for that info. Once we get electric back at home, I will begin trying to compile a list of what is supposed to reopen and when.

I just hope Maria stays far enough away to not do any MORE damage..

Before booking anything this year you might want to wait till hurricane season is over. As there seems to be an active hurricane season this year.
