"Wonderful experience. Staff go out of their way."
We booked a room with a king size bed and were initially put in a room with 2 queens. Ashton at the front desk immediately rectified the situation and everything after that was perfect. We stayed in the Frigate Suite. Highly recommend!
My husband and I and another couple recently had the opportunity to stay at Carambola Renaissance Marriott. After reading the reviews I was a bit concerned it would be unsatisfactory, and my hubby is quite picky. When we arrived for check in the staff literally already knew who we were and had our reservations waiting. They even gave us a delicious cup of rum punch on the house! We got a ocean front room and we were very satisfied with it. It appears that all of the rooms are updated at this time so there isn't a bad room on the property. I think the bad reviews were pre renovation. The staff at this property was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Most of the people on the island were. We loved the close proximity of the tide pool hike to this hotel, didn't have to leave property to fund trail head. And the beach... Wow... It was completely amazing. I'm a travel agent and have been a lot of places. The beach on this property was one of the most picturesque beaches I've ever laid eyes on! The hotel is also in close proximity to the bioluminescent bays. If you have never had the opportunity to visit a bio bay, I highly recommend it! It's like liquid stars, amazing! I liked the remoteness of this property. We visited Christianstead one day and were really happy we decided not to stay in that area. There were a few shady characters lurking around there and we didn't feel as safe as we did at Carambola. I am ready to visit here again! Carambola made our trip awesome!
Laura, the manager was very professional, friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, stocked with snacks, several bottles of water and coffee to get us started. They provided beach towels for our use as well as the option to use beach chairs if we needed. The room was large, clean and had magnificent views of the ocean with the sound of the waves crashing on the shoreline. Each room has a fabulous, large deck with two lounge chairs and small table. Morning Yoga was never better. The restaurant was fabulous. We ate several meals there and were not disappointed. The hotel is located on a "walking/biking" route which made it wonderful to go for our morning walks. There are several restaurants within walking distance. There is also a small beach, dive and scuba area within walking or short drive from the hotel. You do need a car to get to the center of St. Croix and other areas, but all are easily accessed from this location. We enjoyed this hotel very much and will return again.
The Palms at Pelican Cove was a perfect place for us to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! The staff was friendly and attentive. They quickly learned our names and were very knowledgeable about the island and were always happy to make arrangements for a special outing. The grounds were beautiful. While we were there the many coconut trees were being pruned and we were able to enjoy coconut water right out of the coconut thanks to Norbert. Our rooftop suite was spacious and had an amazing view of the beach. If you are looking for a place with lots of the typical tourists trappings this is not the place for you! It was quiet-no loud guests or jet skis out on the water. It was less than a hundred feet from our room to a beautiful beach with amazing snorkeling! It was easy to get a quick taxi ride into town, though car rentals are easy and convenient. My husband and I are already planning a trip back for next year and the year after that! My guess is that a visit to The Palms at Pelican Cove will become a new family tradition!
"Great hotel/spa on the beach with waves crashing"
The hotel and spa has improved so much we loved our stay. The hotel and bar/restaurant staff are very friendly and fun to be around. The manager of the restaurant has added lots of fun special events on some evenings. The location is great close to Christiansted and the east end of the island. A great place
Excellent room, large, and comfortable. Hotel staff friendly and very helpful, right near the beach and easy access to all local attractions. Great place to vacation, and I fully recommend to anyone traveling to the Virgin Island of St. Croix

My wife and I came here to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We had a wonderful time and are completely satisfied, highly recommended. The full kitchen was well stocked, we prepared our own meals and saved a fortune in meal expenses. Excellent wifi connectivity in the room allowed us to stay connected with friends and family and upload photos to our social networking sites. The pool was beautiful and the beach access was great.

The hotel is great! The staff are frinedly and the boat to and from the hotel is always there when you need to go. The island is idealic and the seeing nature with the pelicans are diving for food and the wind blowing was just beautiful. The location is excellent for weddings or private parties and beach is fabulous!

"One of the best bed and breakfasts in the world."
This was the most incredible experience. The ENTIRE staff was so nice, fun, professional; and great to be around! Even the "cleaning" staff would make sure they saw you everyday and asked if they could do anything for me! EVERYTHING was clean and fresh the entire time. The bed/bedroom was great, the pool was kept clean everyday; and the views everywhere were magnificent. Everyone was so willing to help with whatever you need. I was there on my own, and the rest of the guests along with the staff made me feel like part of the "family"!!! I have recommended the Carringtons Inn to all my friends and when I was downtown Christiansted, I would even recommend it to people I would meet, especially if they complained about the place they were staying. I will ALWAYS stay at the Carringtons Inn, and so will my friends. One more thing...I NEVER eat breakfast, but I did everyday I was there. The food was INCREDIBLE; honestly, the best breakfast I have ever eaten, and a great variety.
