Ridiculous San Juan Layover - JetBlue

My wife and I are headed down to St. John for a well-deserved 5 day mini-vacation away from our lovely (but sometimes mentally/physically taxing) 2 year old twins.

To maximize our beach/relaxation time and minimize our travel time, I noticed that JetBlue had a very inexpensive red-eye flight ($59 each way) from NY to San Juan that leaves at 10:30pm and arrives in San Juan at 3:15am! The earliest flight out of San Juan to St. Thomas (no airport in St. John) is 6:45am on Carribbean Sun Airlines (who??) or at 8:30am on AA/American Eagle.

Does SJU allow people to sleep in the airport at this hour? (i.e. is the airport still "open" Is it really smart/safe to do so?? I see there is a BEst Western at the airport but cant see spending $160 for a few hours of sleep in bed. Suggestions??

Secondly....would you go with no name Carribean Sun Airlines at 6:45am or American Eagle and sleep in the airport until 8:15am? (I could go with Cape Air at 7:15am but my wife would never step foot on a Cessna!)

Any thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
