I've read so many of the prior posts that my head is now spinning. I was hoping to get some updated thoughts/answers to two questions if you don't mind, in regards to a trip for 2 we are planning to Virgin Gorda (VG) from Fri 6/16 - Sat 6/2:
1. Travel: Trying to decide whether to get there and back from Philadelphia by flying to STT then taking series of ferry's to Tortola then to VG (my understanding is that there are limited ferry's from STT directly to VG on our arrival Friday) versus paying a bit extra and flying Philadelphia to San Juan then connecting via Cape Air from San Juan to VG. My sense is that the San Juan route might be easier logistically, but was hoping for some insight.
2.Lodging: our preference would be to stay at a hotel/resort that has some amenities, like a concierge/common area, breakfast option, etc. rather than being completely on our own in a villa, but this isn't mandatory (a villa is not absolutely off the menu). However, we do definitely want
a) Easy access to a great beach or beaches that we can walk to with at least relative ease to read and relax after scuba diving
b) Air conditioning in our bedroom(s)
c) Wifi availability, strongly prefer in our rooms but not absolutely mandatory.
FYI - we could/will rent a car.
Thanks, in advance!
