Just about to book a trip to St. Maarten for early August, myself, my son and a friend of his, both 18. Question is I am an aviation buff and want to stay close to Maho for a few nights and then move to less hectic part of the island, but not too quiet. Priorities are beach activities and enough nightlife to keep all entertained. Any recommendations on where to stay? 2 rooms are in the plan. I read all the negative reviews on most properties and don't want to get stuck in a bad place. 3-4 star is good.
Also is renting scooters a good idea for getting around. Seems the traffic and lack of parking make a car more of a hassle.
Thanks in advance!
