Con Dao or Phu Quoc (high season January)

I know this question has been asked before, but post seem a bit outdated. What is the better place to visit, Phu Quoc or Con Dao (Con Son)?
Phu Quoc best days seem to have past by, from what I read, all being very touristy and very expensive now it seems. Is their still any nice beach place away from Western food places and overpriced resorts (between 10-30 $US in high season) that you could recommend? Is its possible to go snorkeling in January?
Con Dao sounds lovely, apart from what I read about sand flies. Is it so bad, or would some repellent save the problem?
Also: Is it possible to enjoy either of those islands without renting a motorbike? I do not want to try riding a motorbike while in Vietnam. How expensive would it be to get around by Xe Om in Phu Quoc? Are there any Xe Om on Con Dao at all?
Are there any affordable tours to beaches and hiking trails around Con Dao Archipelago? Are there affordable snorkeling tours, or places you could reach by foot or bicycle from the main town, where we could snorkel?
Also happy to learn about alternative beach destinations in South Vietnam. Looking for clear water, relatively clean beach, budget accomodation, not too many tourists and nice weather - who doesn't .
Thank you for you help, much appreciated!
