The cottages are great. Everything about the hotel is perfect. This is the coolest place we have ever stayed. The staff makes this place unforgettable. I could vacation here and never go anywhere else. We have found perfection.

Cottages is located right on the beach just south of the pier in Frederiksted. It is quiet and has calm waters. They have kayaks and bikes for use by the guests. Good snorkeling is right off the beach but great snorkeling is about a 30 minute walk along the beach at the Frederiksted Pier--awesome walls 30 ft deep of very... More

After reading a lot of great reviews about cottages by the sea we decided to give it a shot. What a wonderful laid back week at this great little resort! The beach is beautiful and the snorkeling is great even right in front of the resort. The water is calm and clear making for great swimming, wading and a relaxed... More

We stayed at Cottages in early April. My sweetie and I have been staying at Cottages when we are on island for over a decade. We obviously love the vibe, the proximity to the water, the other guests Cottages draws & the wonderful staff. If you like a restful oasis with attentive staff and the Caribbean lapping at your front... More

We visited STX at the end of March and stayed at Cottages by the Sea. What a great place. We were originally staying in Commodore's Villa but were also upgraded to the Chart House. This is exactly where I want to stay on my next visit to the island. This cute little cottage on the beach was perfect for us.... More

We stayed at Cottages by the Sea in March and had a fantastic time. We were in Compass Rose - the management actually gave us a free upgrade to this cottage - and we had an incredible view of the sea on our doorstep. I have never seen a more beautiful beach. We felt very relaxed and very safe walking... More

After an unusually brutal Maine winter, we took Jimmy Buffett’s lyrics literally and flew “to St. Somewhere.” St. Croix, the least travelled and largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands – at 83 square miles – retains that increasingly rare Old Caribbean charm, as well as its natural beauty. We stayed at the low-rise pastel yellow Cottages by the Sea on... More

After a recommendation from my Parents, my Wife and I decided to go. My Parents have been coming to this resort for 10 years, and they've always prattled on about the benefits of coming; the ownership (Paul), the people, the locations, and the ocean. I have to say that we had a fantastic time, very relaxed. They were right about... More

Enjoyed our stay here , by far one of the best beaches on the island . Our cottage the carnival has seen better days though clean , but not worth the 220 dollars a day price tag. Lots of return guests to this beautiful place in paradise , which can at times be a little to much when one is... More

"Wow! Let me start off by saying that I was looking forward to a beach vacation to rest & celebrate my Mom's 70th Birthday. This place more than surprised us, because it was so much more than we expected! We stayed in Cruzan Cottage, & not only did we have a front & center view of the beach, but we... More
