I will second that vote for Scrub Island, we've been there twice and loved the tranquility each time. Great location and pretty easy to reach through San Juan to Tortola then the Scrub Island Ferry.
Here are some photos from our trips to paradise:
Let us know what you select or if you have any questions.
I haven't been to Scrub Island, but hope to go in the next couple of years.
I have been to Aruba Stellaris & Casino and the Grand Cayman Marriott. Loved both of them. Both islands have much to offer in terms of restaurants, shopping, and excursions. If you're looking for a big resort feel, then Aruba Stellaris is the one for you. The Grand Cayman resort is nice, but is a little smaller. I love both and will go back to each of them for different reasons.
If you decide with Aruba or Grand Cayman and need ideas or have questions about the hotel, I'd be happy to help.
There's three givens in Insiders;
1)pingreeman wants guaranteed suite upgrades when using points
2) erc is driven crazy by the Marriott Matrix and their infamous 'pricing quirks'
3) IAH loves him some Scrub Island
you are one step away from being walked softly by the moderators - (inside joke between erc,IAH, and walksoftly)
It's good to know that some things remain constant
(although what's that saying about doing the same thing expecting different results )
Keep on keepin' on Insiders
If you want a little bit of a quieter Honeymoon go with Grand Cayman (that's where I went 2 years ago and we loved it). If you want a bigger hotel with a little more options then go to Aruba. I don't think you'll be disappointed with either. The Atlantis resort will be part of the Autograph Collection.
My wife and I stayed at the Ritz in St.Thomas this past February; it was the best vacation we have ever had! The staff is awesome; the room was great with a nice sized balcony overlooking the water; the food was great (especially on Wednesday and Saturday when it is brought in fresh from a local fisherman - quite the ceremony)!! We stayed on points and will be staying again next February (pay - no points; but a great deal of pay for 4 nights get 5th night free).
