Overall I'd have to say the rating should be a 4.5 vice a 5. The hotel is a bit dated but in their defense it's mentioned on the web site that one shouldn't expect a luxury hotel. That it is not. What the hotel does offer is clean and comfortable accomadations, a beautiful little beach and direct access to Christiansted....

The shuttle boat to the hotel was prompt and took us right to the hotel entrance and we had to walk a little to check in. The rooms are very nice, we had a view of the Fort and the water. Pelicans and other sea birds were abundant. The staff was friendly. The beach was nice as well. The pool...

The view of St. Croix from the island is astonishing! Snorkeling right of the beach was a huge highlight of staying here. We saw conch, barracuda, sea turtles, starfish, and plenty of fish! This is not a luxury hotel (the rooms are a good size and have plenty of amenities tho), but the views, staff, and atmosphere are great! The...

This was our second stay at the hotel and just like last time it was great. The hotel isn't fancy, but the service is excellent, the rooms are large, clean and have everything you need. The kitchenettes make it easy to not break the bank eating every meal out. The beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is amazing as soon...

We only took the ferry and sat on the beach and at the bar. The service was great. The bartenders were friendly, attentive and made our visit special. Either their service problems from the past have been solved, or our polite and friendly manner were appreciated. Hard to say, but our experience was great. Go for a ferry ride to...
