Laurance Rockefeller chose the finest location in the Caribbean for this resort. It is a wonderful place with great memories for me and my family. We do miss the atmosphere of the days when practically all the staff were locals (St. Thomas included).

Just got back from one week here with my two kids (9 and 11). What a great experience. We all had a great time. This is no all inclusive mega-resort, nor some swanky high rise on a beach. (Not that there is anything wrong with those...and we've stayed in those places and had good experiences, but we all agreed this... More

We spent three days (too short!) on St. John after a visit to the BVI's. St. John is still my favorite island in the Caribbean. I think it has the perfect mix of beautiful beaches and mountainous scenery, great snorkeling, friendly people and fun towns. This was my fifth visit and I'll be back again soon. (And the VI's are...

Words cannot express the beauty, service and experience you get when visiting Caneel Bay Resort. This place is magic (and we've been to a lot of nice resorts)! The staff is wonderful and the choices of food, beaches and places to hangout are limitless. The local shuttles, that cover the entire resort, run often and quickly whisk you from one... More

This was one of the best, if not, best vacations I've ever had. What an amazing property. Staff was friendly, especially Christine @ the concierge. A few highlights: Ferry ride over was great replete w/rum punch; easy and nice Beautiful grounds Great service but not the kind of place where you have waiters on the beach. There is service but...

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
