This campground/resort is just lovely. Between the wildlife, i.e Wild free roaming deer & donkey that will eat right from your hands, the fish you'll see if scuba is your thing.. even if not, look closely while swimming the clear blue waters, they are there! The birds, reptiles and mongoose you see will blow your main land minds. Cinnamon beach... More

I'm a grandmother who loves camping and has done so all over the world. I have used and enjoyed other national park camping and cabin facilities for 12 years of retirement. I was happy to learn of Cinnamon Bay campground. Reading many reviews, I was geared up and looking to enjoy a few quiet, beautiful days and nights on St.... More

Special place part of the national park Mother Nature shapes the beach a tree falls and that is where it stays. My cottage number 105 was just steps from the beach. I have stayed several times in the cottages. Restaurant is reasonable; food is incredible I recommend the goat soup. Tip by all your supplies at the store on property... More

If you want to enjoy drinks by a swim-up bar and sleep under heavy AC, then this place is not for you. But, if you want to sleep steps from the gently lapping waves of the warm Caribbean, you won't find a better place. My wife and I stayed there during the last week in July, and we thought it...

We stayed in a tent in the campgrounds. It was large and had everything we needed including cooking utensils. The sheets, bathrooms and showers were clean. Although there is a gas light you can burn outside your tent you definitely need to bring your own torch. The beach is absolutely beautiful and it is great to be able to camp... More

We were in tent site 21, by far the closest tent site to the beach. Every night we listened to the waves while we went to sleep, every morning and night we walked the beach (using a lot of bug spray). The campsites were clean, the tents were older and in need of maintenance. Cold showers were actually nice on... More

Cinnamon Bay is another beautiful beach in St.john. The water is crystal clear & the sand is perfect. Not as busy as Trunk Bay which makes it appealing. However the woman you rent snorkels from is completely unfriendly. Cest la vie I guess. Still had fun.

We stayed in one of the beachfront villas #10C. Our room was literally a few steps from the water. This is like having a motel room on the beach for about the same motel room price. People who have not stayed at Cinnamon before should know that these are not luxurious accommodations. It's basically glorified camping. The twin beds are... More

You can't beat the location, right on Cinnamon Bay beach and close to Surrounding beaches. The campground was clean and quiet for the most part. The bathroom & showers were a bit out dated and could use some renovations. Each bare camping site comes with a charcoal grill and some with a wooden table to eat. Ask for a campground... More
