I've been here for 3 days so far and u really do love it. I truly don't understand where people are getting the rude staff from, I've had no problems. Sometimes they take a little bit longer than normal but as my father once said "if they (the natives of st croix) sense you are inpatient, they will make you wait longer. Yes there are cats and mongooses but it adds to the Caribbean experience. People say the islands dirty, well welcome to the Caribbean. Everyone is nice and welcoming. Foods a little pricy, but other than that everything is wonderful, peaceful, and great!
