Best resort with kids??? Please help

Hello all !

I'm looking for the best resort for families in or near carribian. Kids aged 3,5,6, and 3 teenagers . Snorkeling off the resort and calm water a huge bonus. Lots of activities at hotel or nearby. Budget is pretty high . All inclusive is a plus but not a necessity. Help me out please !!

You may try posting in the individual forums for STX, STT and STJ to generate more responses; for some reason, the general USVI forum doesn't seem to get as many replies. With that being said, I know the major resorts on STJ are temporarily closed from the Hurricanes (Caneel Bay and the Weston). I'm sure there are options on STT, but I'm not as familiar with those.

You could also look into the Buccaneer on St. Croix. The Bucc is closer to Christiansted and all the shopping/dining options there. We stayed on STX last year (rented a villa) and really enjoyed our time there horseback riding, kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, etc. are all available on STX). Whichever island you choose, I'm sure you'll have a wonderful trip!

There's not much on St Thomas if you're looking for a resort. The only one which might fit the bill is the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort which is family-oriented. They have plenty of entertainment there, water sports, etc. so take a look and see if it's something which would interest you.

I second the Buccaneer on St Croix. In addition to what is mentioned above, they also have a kids club.

I really love Secret Harbour on the east end of St. Thomas. The off-shore snorkeling was pretty amazing pre-irma, but I haven't been back to experience it since. I know the resort will re-open in June and has two on-site restaurants.
