Very family/kid friendly; lots to do--good grub and affable! Great views, pools, fab ocean-front. Their local fish was sumptuous--and we'll be back. What more can I say................,...................,...,.,..!

We recently got back from Caneel Bay Resort (just before they went on hiatus for the Fall) and it was wonderful. Five beaches in walking distance, with velvet sand. Some beaches didn't have a sole in sight, we were alone in paradise, with the exception of the drinks brought to us by the bartender. Snorkle gear and floats were available.... More

The nature is stunning: great beaches, fantastic nature and good snorkeling. The property has fantastic tennis courts (more than 15), new and well organized, with a great pro who offers daily clinics and lessons. Except Zozo's, the Italian restaurant, which is in excellent conditions, with very nice view, the rest of the resort is obsolescent; the rooms and bathrooms are... More

If you want to thoroughly relax in a casually luxurious setting- with considerate classy amenities, nice people, delicious quiet, and an absolutely gorgeous one-of-a-kind amazing natural setting- this is the place to go, and we have been all over. Ask for Judith to do your massage. If you want gold fixtures in the bathroom, hot nightlife or conventional service, go... More

Beautiful sea. Wild animals. magnificent location. All spoilt by the lack of service the lack of customer care and the gasoline golf cars. Induction Nobody explains anything about the island when you arrive. There is no welcome. Food The two restaurants :the Italian one "zozo" had nothing of Italian with the exception of the name of the dishes". the grill... More

MDCaneel, General Manager at Caneel Bay Resort, responded to this review

Dear Clara B Please accept my personal apologies for the disappointment you have shared on Tripadvisor. I am truly surprised that you felt there was no welcome; as typically our guests enjoy our delicious rum punch on board our ferry, are then greeted with cool towels on the dock by one of our agents who then provide our guests with...

We returned on Saturday from a wonderful week at Caneel Bay. We visited for the first time last year, with a plan of a few days at Caneel Bay and then a few days in St. Thomas. While at Caneel Bay that first time we immediately fell in love and extended our stay by a day while on site. This... More

This is probably the one place I'd like to return to in the world. Visited 1st in 1981 and the place was paradise on earth. Prices have of course gone up, and modern conveniences may not be up to par with other resorts, but the natural beauty is the reason to go. Hope to return soon.

This was a spontaneous vacation planned in less than a week. Yes, I had to escape reality and find some quality R&R. I found exactly what I was looking for at Caneel Bay. What a beautiful location and resort. My companion and I felt like we owned the resort. Everyone treated us with a warm, friendly, and welcoming attitude. The... More

First, let me say you must know what you are looking for in a vacation. This is not a classic 5 star...it is a Beach resort on an island known for its natural beauty (tiny pool...older but clean rooms). If you're looking for a getaway that will make you one with the island this is perfect. Private beaches, friendly but... More
