St Croix and the Renaissance are permanently removed from our vacation list. Run-down best describes the island and the hotel. The bloom is off this rose for sure. Beds are rock-hard. Room pricing is probably 4 or 5 times more than it should be. The hotel menu is limited and the food is terrible - consistently over-cooked - and service is strained. This is the first time in 30 years we've vacationed on a tropical island and found no redeeming qualities to bring us back. Prices are as high as you'll find anywhere in the world. Be careful driving around the island - even though all of the vehicles are left-hand drive, they still drive on the left side. As a consequence, driving the narrow, winding, poorly maintained roads is insane. It seems most of the locals live in Housing Authority slums. At gas stations and grocery stores we were frequently approached by crack addicts looking for a handout. Go to St John or Aruba or Barbados.
