We are planning a low-key trip to SXM in May and want to venture somewhere new. We stayed at Sonesta Great Bay last year. We would really like to rent a condo/apartment or small hotel, very low key.. Which do you prefer and why? Are the restaurants on the French side more expensive? Is it safe to walk around at night? What about access to grocery stores? Which beach has calmer water? I am not a fan of big waves and heavy wind.
