“Great Oceanfront Location, Beautiful Grounds & Pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2006

We stayed for a few days at Pelican Cove Condos in early February. It is a very nice upscale condo complex. We travelled around to most of the other parts of the island and scouted for future stays so we have a good idea about the other choices. The best aspects about Pelican Cove are the following:

**It is very convenient to most everything as it is mid island- the furthest destination in 30 minutes away in either direction. Groceries, great restaurants, shopping are all with a 5-10 minute drive.

**There are two great restaurants and a bar within a five minute walk at the adjacent Hibiscus and Palms @ Pelican Cove resorts.

**The grounds are among the nicest we saw with extensive, well-maintained tropical foliage and a palm- fringed beach.

**The pool is very large and nicely landscaped.

**The pool and beach were never crowded.

**The units we saw were well kept and roomy. All have a view of the Caribbean from the patio.

**The neighborhood nearby was moderate to middle income - note that a number of condos complexes a little closer to Christiansted are across from public housing projects which some might not be comfotable with.

All in all, it was a very nice place if you are looking for a convenient, quiet oceanfront experience without the activities and feel of a hotel.

Note the the beach directly in front of the complex is very nice sand- perfect for strolling or sunning; however as with most beaches on the north shore, the water access is limited due to coral in the water. However, a short walk on the beach - 3-4 minutes- takes you over to the Palms and there is a lovely sandy bottom beach access into the water for swimming and snorkling.

St. Croix is wonderful- friendly people, polite drivers (whcih helps since they drive on the left), lots of history, varied topograghy from mountain rainforest to arid rolling hills. We felt very comfortable driving around just about anywhere.

We recommend both the island and Pelican Cove heartily!

Such a beautiful view of the ocean... I could just stay in bed all day with the drapes pulled wide open and view the palm trees swaying in the breeze, listening to the non-stopping rush of the ocean --- such a relaxing atmosphere, and when it rained.. such a wonderful patio to sit, relax, read and watch. All the amenities you need, snorkling gear, beach towels, DVD's, books, think all i really needed to bring was a hair dryer and bathing suits... although i would have taken more small staples, crackers, wine, tea bags, coffee... stores are a bit pricey, but still worth it to cook in your room as restaurants are a bit pricey also, but well worth it (Breezes rum fired lobster is the BEST) Hotel within walking distance with the nicest bartenders and great food. Stores have "convenient hours" so don't be surprised if you getsomewhere and they're closed due to the owner having something else to do for the day.. most close early around 4 or 5 pm. The island is so beautful, surprised to see desert along with the plush green rolling hills. A must to do while there is a kyak and snorkling adventure (I used Anchor Dive for kyaking and Blackbeards for snorkling out to Buck Island *** if you've never done this before, be sure to use a waist-float and you'll have a wonderful time*** ) And, there is a Casino - beautiful, but doesn't open until noon to 4am... Go again YOU BET!!... had an invitation to come back and stay with one of the locals and will definitely do so in the next year. Happy driving on the LEFT!!!

We recently got married in St Croix VI and it was spectacular! We were searching to rent/buy a condo and went all over the island. We stayed @ Pelican Cove. If your looking for privacy, and a serene setting, folks Pelican Cove is the place! The view of the ocean was beautiful, immpeccable grounds, and great ocean views. I have attached pictures for your viewing. If anyone would like addtional information regarding this Condo resort, please feel free to email me as we were so impressed we bought a condo which has direct ocean view. Feel free to email me for additional information or renting our condo.
Thank you

Have a great day!

We stayed at a great condo next to 2 resorts. The advantage of this was having an entire, large 2 bedroom condo that was fully equiped while still being next door to great restaurants. And, given that we could split the cost with another couple, it was only about half the price! This place is newly renovated, in perfect condition and directly on the beach. And, it had a huge freshwater pool. We even snorkled on the reef you could easily swim to!...snorkeled everyday!!! There is also great snorkeling and diving on St. Croix. It is a relaxed island compared to St. Thomas (you can take a day trip to other islands by ferry or sea plane). It has many beaches to explore, places to hike and lots of water sports. You can tour an outdoor botanical garden, rain forest and a rum factory. Being the largest Virgin Island, it has a lot to offer. Two towns to explore, lots of great restaurants and even a casino. The biggest decision everyday was whether to tour the island or just lay by the ocean.
