I'm late 30s, and my wife is 7 years younger, from the midwest. We first went to SXM on our honeymoon in 2012. Went back the next 3 years, every year around the same time (Dec).
Always stay on the French side, either Anse Marcel, Grand Case, or most recently, Orient Village. The Village is our favorite now.
Unfortunately, we won't make it back this year - but for a happy reason. Just had our first baby. Not sure what that does to our normal SXM routine moving forward... but we'll figure it out eventually.
