Member Monday: Different Resorts, Same Unforgettable Caribbean

Sue and Ron A. went to the Vista Al Puerto in St. Maarten earlier this year and they recently gave a Global Discovery Vacations week to their daughter and her new husband for their honeymoon to Flamingo Beach Resort, not far from the Vista Al Puerto. It’s a double Caribbean serving in this week’s Member Monday!

Where would you recommend a fellow member to go to…
The Green House was our favorite. We had breakfast at Chesterfield.

Philipsburg and Marigot.

My daughter loved the horseback riding!

What was your favorite:
Resort/Condominium Amenity or Room
We stayed at Vista Al Puerto while my daughter stayed at Flamingo Beach. Both were very nice!

Place to go in the destination
Everywhere. It’s hard to get lost!


Why did you choose this destination?
Because we always wanted to go to the Caribbean.

Who did you travel with?
My husband and I in went in February. My daughter and her new husband visited in May.

Were you traveling for a special occasion? If yes, what?
It had been a bitter winter and we were escaping the cold!

What was your favorite memory of your vacation?
Everything. We rented a car and just explored the whole island everyday.

Any tips for a traveler to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
Don’t be afraid to go anywhere on the island because the people are very friendly. But there are topless and nude beaches on the French side, so beware!

Additional Comments
We loved it so much that we sent my daughter there in May for her honeymoon and they also enjoyed it a lot! It’s definitely on our to-go-back list. Soon!

  1. We only have nexus cards not passports. We can go to United States, Mexico and Canada of course, so we need more destinations in Canada. We have been members for 8 years and have not used it, we haven’t found our ideal spot yet. We love Disney and Parks of that sort, Help Please.

    • Hi Doris,

      We have many options all over the country, including Canada and Mexico, for every type of interest, whether that be mountains, beach or amusement parks. We’re sad to hear that you haven’t taken advantage of the membership yet, so we encourage you to call our Condominium Consultants at 866-467-9007. One of our helpful representatives will be happy to help find the perfect destination for you to travel in more detail than we can provide here.

      We hope you give us a call and we look forward to your first trip!

      -Happy Travels
