A group of 20 stayed at "Cottages by The Sea" in mid August 2015 for my son and his brides beach wedding, and they couldn't have picked a more perfect location. It was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were very clean and beautifully decorated. I can't say enough positives about the staff, going above and beyond, one of the managerial folks... More

Cottages by the Sea was the best part of our trip to St. Croix. We stayed (3 adults ages 29-39) from Monday through Friday and we did not want to leave after 4 nights!!! The trip was planned by three friends looking for a great beach getaway on a BUDGET and it worked. The hotel is located right on the... More

We stayed at Cottages by the Sea for our family vacation. Our families stayed in the Coconut and Cocktail cottages. We absolutely loved this place. They owners are so accommodating and helpful with all of our questions. My husband went down to ask if they had coffee to purchase because it was late and he didn't want to go to... More

THIS is my home away from home! I lived on St. Croix for 18 years (1976-1994). Now I try to get there at least once a year for at least one month. "Cottages" is my choice "residence". The owner and staff treat all guests like family members, it's always clean and they update the abodes constantly, the location is quiet... More

Cottages by the Sea is the best! So much better than I had expected. The staff, and especially Paul the manager, really go out of their way to make your stay perfect. We stayed in Commodore Villa, it was large, would comfortably sleep 5, and was beautifully decorated. All of the cottages are only steps from the sand. The snorkeling... More

Cottages by the Sea is a great little locally-owned property on an amazingly beautiful & private beach. We stayed in Calabash for 5 nights and it was perfect. We had a great little kitchen & dining area, small sitting area, and very comfortable king bed. We were steps from white sand & snorkeling (they have equipment we borrowed), they had... More

This hotel was perfect for us. Stayed in the Calypso room and it was a great size. AC worked great and Wi-Fi was fast. The best part is the beach. Steps from any room and stunningly gorgeous. Every local we met on the island said we were staying at the best beach on the island. Staff was very friendly and... More

Make sure you visit there website and take a look at each room... It will list recent updates, location to the beach (if you want beach front) the other units are steps away from the... More

The bungalows are in a great location with direct access to a beautiful stretch of beach as you would dream of it. They are simple but with all amenities and well maintained. The room was nice and clean. We spent five nights there. The managers and staff were helpful at all times. The restaurant next door is convenient - not... More
