“Awesome place in a great location!”
Reviewed 27 May 2012

We'd like to start by thanking Denise and David for a WONDERFUL honeymoon stay! The room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast was sufficient - healthy and simple with coffee and tea, fruit, baked goods, yogurt, juice. The owners were very hospitable and let us borrow beach towels daily. Their recommendations for activities: beaches, jeep rental, restaurants were spot-on. We WILL be back to stay at this lovely place.

Room Tip: We were in Room # 3, which was a bit small - it was fine for us, because who spends time in the room...

It's really close from the center of Cruz Bay (actually it is a one block away from the center), very nice walk around, nice restaurants near by. It is very clean, not big, the shower it is a too small, but everything that you think that could be an issue is irrelevant by the very pleasant owners. They give to you a lot of directions and tips. If you arrive by boat, the hotel is close enough to walk and you can get some taxis to the beaches, if you arrive with car, take care about the directions, because the map is for those who arrive without car. The breakfast is good, there is no parking around the hotel but they have a public parking really close. Definitely worth it.

Definitely an amazing place. Location is perfect. You can walk to everything in town and to a few of the more secluded beaches. The rooms were smaller but that was no issue for us as they were clean and big enough. Trust me, with the beautiful scenery you will be out and about most of your stay. Best of all the owners were very helpful. They gave us great directions and recommendations, when we go back they will be the first choice of hotel!

What a wonderful place! You can walk to everything in town, no need for a car. They did a wonderful job of keeping the room clean and the breakfast was of local baked goods, fruit and cereals was just perfect. Would definitely recommend to friends! Hope to be there again next year.

My wife and I stayed in the PentHouse of the Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel for two nights and we were very positively surprised by every single aspect of our hotel.

The apartment was very very lovely, equiped in perfect condition with a complete kitchen (new appliances), not missing a single thing for cooking and including even such things as a blender.
We have to mention that especially amazed were we here also by the cleanliness of the bed, bath and floor (we stayed in another 4 star resort on Puerto Rico after that, where we changed the room 3 times on the first day...).
The breakfast on the common terrace consisted of fruits, oatmeal, cake and coffee was the perfect start for us into an active day full of adventure on St. John.
Location? Perfectly close walking distance to the ferry dock (3 mins.) and to plenty of busy sea-side bars, nice restaurants and also the only real supermarket in town.

Overalll one can feel that the hotel is run by its owners, who do not only care a lot about the condition of their rooms, but also care personally about their guests and are always available with good reccommendations.

However, everything comes with draw-backs, e.g. if you want to jump in a pool at night go to a resort. If you search absolute tranquility in your room, you will not find that here as the neighbouring bars may play music in the evening.

Overall, this hotel is probably the best you can find in terms of Cruz Bay location, acceptable price, well equipped room and cleanliness. For us (young active traveler couple) it was an excellent choice and we can fully reccomend it.
