The casino is open from 11 am until 12 am Monday through Wednesday, 10 am to 12 midnight Thursday - Saturday and 12 noon- 1 am on Sunday. Caravelle Hotel’s $2.5 million renovation started in September 2015 and was completed in February 2016. Renovations were made in all guest rooms and in the public spaces including the lobby, front desk, pool area, as well as with the exterior and structure of the historic hotel.

Sun’s creations are also featured in guest rooms where the crisp cotton linens are complimented with a bed sash and accent pillows and in the casino. The overall color scheme of the hotels interiors is natural, calming and subtle with bright accents.

Were not guests at the hotel but were recommended at the Casino to talk to Ms. Hillarine when we couldn't find a taxi to take us back to our place. Ms. Hillarine went out of her way to help us out, calling in a personal favor from the cab driver when no one else wanted to come

This is a nice hotel in Christiansted. You'll need to keep in mind where you are - it won't be the same as mainland hotels. The staff was great and really helpful. Parking is a problem, but again that is common for St. Croix.

The casino only has maybe 50 slot machines. But if you are looking to get lucky its worth a stop. Its located near a ton of restaurants so thats a bonus. Its also on the boardwalk so there is shopping connected to the area as well.

If you have to relax and chill out this is the right place to go. I have been to a lot of resturants around the World. Places where you can feed the local cats, the local birds - but here you can actually feed the local craps! I have never been "at the Waterfront" this much.

Is this place near a beach?
There is a beach across on Protestant Cay which is a $5 ferry ride RT. You are $5-$10 one-way from Buccaneer and Tamarind. Ranked in that order.

I do not work for the hotel; however, I stayed in Room #221, right on the waterfront facing the boardwalk and I had a refridgerator, A Kuerig single cup cofee maker but no microwave. I would speak to management or Christine, the Front Desk Agent who is fabulous and tell them Shelly May, singer from St. Thomas says hello!
