Our trips to Caneel are to experience the beaches but each time we come we find how much we appreciate the outstanding "land" surroundings! Each and every employee was informative and willing to go above and beyond. As a matter of fact, my husband suffered a severe fall while photographing some stunning scenery and the staff were superb in getting... More

We headed to Caneel with some reservations, based on weeks of reading trip advisor reviews on this site. One step on the resort and all our concerns dissipated and I can not wait to return. The sprawling resort is lovely and the beaches beckoned us each day. We stayed on Scott beach and spent most of our days under the... More

This was my fourth visit to Caneel Bay, traveling with one of my young adult sons. I love this place, but it is not for everyone. We stay on Caneel Beach, which is convenient to the Caneel Beach Grill and the concierge desk. Caneel Beach is the busiest beach at the resort, where you can get the sailboats, kayaks and... More

This was my fourth time to St john and first at Caneel Bay. It most definitely won't be my last. The grounds are expansive and have donkeys and deer wandering around. In fact the donkeys were on our porch at times. The rooms are not as luxurious as some 5 star properties, however they are nice and the island setting... More

We returned last week from 5 days at Caneel Bay. We have been to many Caribbean islands but never St. John. We were so excited and had high expectations for Caneel Bay from friends and family who had previously stayed there..... The catch... They stayed there 10+ years ago... The property- lush landscapes, 100's of untouched acres of trails and... More

I have never written a review but I feel I must this time. Caneel Bay Resort seems to be one of the few which respects the fragile environment of the Virgin Islands.  We have boated around the islands two different years.  Other resorts we have seen are great cement structures, with man made playgrounds, flashy lights and bright beach furniture...

My husband and I stayed at Caneel Bay a month ago on our very first trip to the USVI. We found our room quite adequate and knew ahead of time that there were no phones or TV in the room. It was more expensive to eat there than we expected, but on the upside the food was excellent. There are... More

You can't beat Caneel for it beautiful location, good snorkeling and breakfast buffet (only if it's in your package!) and Carib setting. You can easily beat it for service. Upon arrival, after check-in time, we were told our room would not be ready for a couple of hours...the previous guests had "exercised their right to check out late"!...really, you can't... More

I visited Caneel Bay Resort in December 2014 for the second time. We stayed in room 1 on little caneel beach. It is secluded and a perfect quiet location for couples, yet close and convenient to the rest of the resort. The room has a beautiful deck that overlooks the ocean.The resort is situated within the park boundaries and has... More

I know I may be preaching the the choir. We were a couple traveling alone desiring peace and quiet. Our magnificent stay began with Diedre in the reservations area. She was so patient and kind each time I called and was a great listener. Her attention to detail set the stage for a wonderful stay. We were on Hawksnest beach,... More
