Is the internet service decent at Beachside Villas?
Do they provide beach towels?

Thank you for your help,
Scott

Yes and yes. smile We've always had good internet there--better than at home here, frankly. And the beach towels are huge, fluffy, specific beach towels, not bath towels.

Perfect. We've decided on a last minute trip and are trying Beachside based on all the great reviews.

When are you going?
There are quite a few of us end of October/November.

As Carol said yes and yes. We usually trade in our beach towels for clean ones every couple of days. We are part of the late October crew who goes yearly.

Thanks for the info. The price is right and the airfare is only $450/RT, so we decided to go for it. We have traveled to SXM in February every year since 2005. First time for us in the off season. The benefit to booking 2 weeks before the trip is we don't have to wait long at all.

"We usually trade in our beach towels for clean ones every couple of days". Can you get them every day? I would not a fan of using them over again next day.

We used to go a LOT during September/October timeframe and I thoroughly enjoyed the uncrowded aspect of the island at that time. We have been lucky enough to never have had any problems with storms while we were in the Caribbean, EXCEPT for 1999 for 'wrongway Lenny', when we had to be evacuated by AA from St. John, USVI, ahead of the storm. And Lenny was in NOVEMBER. Go figure. Now that we live in Florida, the bigger problem in the back of my mind is if we were to have a hurricane HERE, while we were gone.

Yes, just give them to the maid or stop by the housekeeping station and they will give you a new towel every day, if you want. I don't have them replace the bath towels every day either. To me, it's a waste of water.

Scott---and anyone else new to BSV--they no longer automatically have the maids come every day. When you arrive, let them know if you want daily maid service, or just when you request it, every other day, whatever.
