I am planning to spend 9 days in Sint Maarten/St. Martin in October. I've read the guidebooks and consulted Google, but I still don't know where to stay. Criteria inside.

I'm 26, female, and will most likely be traveling alone. I have a very high stress job and I just want to chill out and not think about work while I'm away. Priorities include proximity to good, local restaurants and bars and nice, uncrowded beaches. I speak/read passable French but no Dutch.
I do not anticipate renting a car. I am REALLY not keen on the touristy mega-resort or twentysomething party scenes, but am open to staying at a resort if it's the best option. My budget is not unlimited and I would like to keep hotel costs under $250 or so per night.
Also, information about anything I must do, see, or eat while there is welcome.
