I'm on a quest to stay at every Marriott Property in the Caribbean. So far so good. How about you?

That ain't good enough. We want to see a spreadsheet with all properties, your checklist and a column with your rating.
I'll leave the spreadsheets for work, but here is quick checklist: Grand Cayman, adequate hotel, nothing fancy, great beach, snorkeling right off beach, close to local restaurants that are better than hotel offers. St Kitts, my Wife's favorite awesome beach, were there in off season has it to ourselves, wonderful staff large property, walking to local hot spots and also drive to secluded beaches worth it. Curacao was my favorite, wonderful staff, large property, loved the 'board room' tiki bar on the beach w food and good snorkeling in calm waters right in front of property, nice pool bar also. St Thomas busy hotel, new section is very nice, great staff, pool is beautiful, beach at nearby cabins is better but small, food expensive but numerous other beaches and restaurants to see via taxi. Cancun is large property also, went in off season, got upgraded to beautiful room overlooking ocean, big pool, bigggggg hot tube, nice beach and Amazing breakfast buffet.
We can now add Aruba to the list of Marriott Caribbean properties we have stayed in. Aruba is truly the happy island. The people always make the stay better or not and this case, they enhanced the stay even more. Snorkeling was great everywhere we went. Some beaches better than others. Overall relaxing, hot and windy each day. Plenty of good restaurants in walking distance on the beach, public transportation was efficient and quick to get around also.
Ok so we have been to St kitts and now are looking at Aruba or Bahamas or Costa Rica??
