Um, having some places that offer some drinks and music - nothing to RAGING (lol) after dinner time until around midnight or so...

Didn't know if you meant like clubs or casinos or whatever. Have you considered the BVI?

edit--never mind, I see you've already been there.

Well, clubs and casinos are fun too...I just don't want to go to somewhere that is too remote (think Anegada...) this year...

La cabana




This hotel complex is not on the beach. You'll have to cross street to get to beach---even tho' all photos we saw before we booked looked like it WAS on beach. When we stayed there a couple of years ago, unless hotel has updated, we found you have to get up and out to beach really really early to get a chair.

Isn't LaCabana a timeshare? Somehow 'timeshare' and 'dream vacation' don't really seem to fit in the same sentence to me.

We are also going in July for 3 weeks, as we did last year. We've been going annually since 2004. BUT, we have 2 weeks in Curacao and love that even more. Not so Americanized, but very Dutch and lovely. Check that out after Aruba.

We are proud timeshare junkies, beats the heck out of a measly hotel room, as long as you do your research. Try Grand Solmar in Cabo, Royal Sea Aquarium in Curacao, Renaissance or Marriott in Aruba, Marriott throughout Hawaii, Royal Resorts in St. Maarten or thoughout Mexico. Have you ever even tried one?

If that question is aimed at me, I have stayed at MANY timeshares in SXM, yes. My point was to equate a timeshare with a dream vacation, which to me means "luxury" is a non-starter. We've been to Tahiti, an African safari, and hotels all throughout the Caribbean, including several luxury all inclusives. THOSE experiences I would call a "dream vacation". Staying at a timeshare hotel, not so much. Other people's definition of 'dream vacation" might be different.

I've never heard of a "timeshare hotel" unless you mean the small 1 room lockoff units which we avoid. My timeshare usage always yield a "dream vacation" with on site restaurants, room service, full kitchen which is convenient, in unit laundry facilities, at least 4 rooms, multiple TV's, beautiful common areas, multiple pools, work out rooms, beachside cooking grills, concierge services, activities, etc. Each to her own "dream!"
