My husband and I just returned from a wonderful getaway to Caneel Bay and we both have to say it was the best trip we have ever taken as a couple. The grounds were as gorgeous as any beach property we have ever seen. Our room was right on the beach complete with some shade trees when we wanted to... More

My husband and I just returned from our first (but not last) Caneel vacation and can not wait to get back. I am a former STJ resident and we have been visiting the island for the past 10 years, staying in villas each time. This was a wonderful departure from our normal STJ vacations and was the perfect spot to... More

My husband and I just spent 3 nights here and loved it. Already thinking of when we can go back. The beaches are stunning and on more than one occasion we were the only couple (or 1 of 2) at the beach - it felt like paradise. Certain beaches seemed more private than others (e.g. Hawks Nest and Turtle) and... More

We just returned from an 8 night stay at Caneel. It was our first time and we cannot wait to go back next year. It IS PRICEY!! What you are paying for is the privacy of the property with 8 beaches to choose from and the natural setting. Yes the rooms need an upgrade. Yes, we got some sand flea/noseum... More

My wife, 6yr old daughter and I just got back from a week at Caneel Bay and once again had a fantastic time. Our room on Hawksnest Beach (ground floor right on the beach) was great. Had a wonderful view of the water from our patio. The sea turtles were swimming about just a few yards off the beach, saw... More

My latest trip here was less than ideal due to GM and office management. I do not think, GM is person to lead Caneel into new, independent phase (post-Rosewood), not welcoming in a professional nor personal manner, plays favorites, even among repeat customers. I feel the daily staff is very welcoming, where upper management does not introduce themselves. I witnessed,... More

My wife and I stayed at Caneel on Hawksnest Beach. The service at all times was awesome! Our flight was late coming in to St. Thomas, but, Caneel Bay had our driver wait until we arrived and he took us to the Caneel ferry (that also waited for us) that after boarding departed immediately. When we landed, a consierge greeted... More

Caneel Bay...you were the best. Having stayed at many high end resorts, I can say without any hesitation that the blue Caribbean waters at Caneel Bay are magnificent. It sure beats Hawaii waters any day. Sure, the rooms need a major overhaul. But, you can learn to accept the rooms as the week goes on by the wonderful time you... More

My husband and I stayed at Caneel Bay for 1 night after being with a group of 18 at Frenchmans in Tortola for the 4 nights prior. We decided it might be nice to try it for one night and get some relaxation for just the two of us after a packed 4 days of boats and bars in the... More

Our family just spent five days at Caneel Bay for our spring break. We were really looking forward to it because we have heard a lot about it over the years. But, I have to say we were very disappointed. The resort is in desperate need of a renovation! In fact, I could not believe we were paying that much... More
