Guadeloupe vs Grenadines vs St Martin

I'm sure this topic has been touched on many times, but would like to get some opinions. We are looking at doing a charter this spring and trying to decide on a location. We've done the BVIs and St Martin a couple of times and are looking at other options. Our favorites so far have been, St John, Jost Van Dyke, and St Barts. We like the beautiful beaches with the option of going to shore for an occasional dinner and drinks as well.
Any thoughts?

They are all beautiful, of course, but generally as you move down the chain you'll experience less crowding. The French islands (Guadeloupe and Martinique etc) have large marinas and good services - but English-only visitors will have a slightly more difficult time.

Iles des Saintes, part of Guadeloupe are a real gem, good snorkeling, charming villages, good hikes to some old forts.

The Grenadines are prime snorkeling, less crowds if you want them, and well worth the visit.

Carriacou is a gem too - no cruise ships, friendly people and deserted beaches, off the beaten track.
