Caneel Bay lived up to the expectations I was given by my family on prior trips. There is something for everyone's personality types - active beach with plenty of fun water toys, to a completely quiet and tranquil beach. They have great locations for snorkling and there is plenty of wildlife to bee seen. We were a group of 5... More

It's been over a decade since I've stayed at Caneel. It was a magical weekend. The rooms are wonderfully updated and the sushi is fantastic. We hiked the two small trails that lead to Hawksnest and Turtle Bay, snorkeled the reef around the beaches, saw tons of fish and coral and finished the afternoon with a hand delivered Bushwacker on...

We just had a fabulous 5 night stay. We stayed in an Oceanview Premium on Cottage Point and had gorgeous views. Easy walk to the main restaurant area and also to Scott Beach. The room was clean, simple, well maintained - perfect for the Caribbean. I don't like fussy rooms in tropical weather! The grounds are beautiful; beaches are gorgeous.... More

We had another great stay at Caneel Bay. This year we stayed on Hawksnest beach, and we loved it. It's all of the little things they do to make your stay special. The staff is very attentive. And that breakfast! Whew! I've read some of the reviews that complained about the beach chairs, or the breakfast costing too much, blah,... More

Multiple beaches and hundreds of acres and world class views make this property nice. Food and service is good but not great. Rooms are very old, dated, run down and NOT in keeping with the tariff paid. Word is they will renovate upon renewal of park service lease. They even have a "sample" renovated room……only one, why? Hopefully the US... More

This was our first trip to the Virgin Islands but will not be our last. Staying at Caneel Bay Resort was the first good decision of many during the trip. Their arrival/departure process was impeccable and never missed a beat. The resort is a very spacious and relaxing facility. There are several excellent beaches to choose from to fit anything...

The natural ocean life is amazing, the sea turtles are everywhere! Resort staff and local people on the island were all lovely, beautiful views, jewelry, fantastic food and accomodation. Went with my mother for Easter vacation and had a lovely, relaxing time.

I studied long before choosing Caneel Bay for a vacation and I loved it for so many reasons. It starts with your ferry ride from St. Thomas to the private dock of Caneel Bay during which I met many honeymooners or other couples who mostly had been here many times before and come back over and over. Everybody raved about... More

This was our second year in a row that we stayed at Caneel for our kids Spring Break (16, 14 & 9yrs old). We had a great time. If you know before you go that the rooms need updating than you won't be disappointed. If your looking for a place to stay in St. John, this is by far the... More

We had two in the 70s to 30s and two kids. Everyone had a great time. We stayed in the Garden View in 134/5 which are adjoining rooms in there own building. They left toys and bath items just for the kids and complimentary champagne and rum for the older kids. Service was above and beyond. We needed diapers for... More
