Where to Stay: Understanding Your Options
The USVI offers a wide selection of traditional hotels, full-service resorts, a few all-inclusive resorts, many smaller inns and guesthouses, rental homes and villas, and time-share properties at a wide range of prices. Ideally, you'll want to find accommodations that are located on or near a beach and that offer room configurations that meet your needs. Unless you're planning on renting a car, you also want to ensure that where you'll be staying is located near restaurants, activities, and shopping. This will help you avoid the need for many taxi rides.
For information about renting a villa in the USVI, as opposed to staying at a resort or hotel, go online to Caribbean Way Luxury Villa Rentals and Sales’ Web site (877-953-7400.
For families staying for a week or more, renting a fully equipped townhouse or a villa that's located near a beach is often a cheaper and more convenient option than staying at a resort or hotel. Many full-service resorts, however, offer special family travel packages.
