“Caravelle-Christiansted”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Location with view of ocean/reef is good, and it is right in town. However, there was a rat in the ice box and mice in the walls. Some of personnel were very nice and accomodating, some not.
We won't be back there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We were here for the holidays. Everyone was so helpful and pleasant. Perfect location for downtown shopping. Parking on site for rental car.Plenty of choices of places to eat.,
The rooms were spacious and kept clean daily. Yes there were no elevators but the exercise was good. It is right on the water.and each room has a lovely view.

We had a very plesant stay at the Caravelle Hotel over the Christmas holidays (2012). The perfect location and the lovely staff certainly makes up for the fact that the hotel is somewhat worn.
We were always welcomed with a smile, the staff often tried to greet us in Danish as a sweet gesture and everyone was very helpful whenever we had a question or requested help.
Located right on the boardwalk, the Caravelle Hotel is close to everything in Christiansted and there is such a great atmosphere there at night. The beach is only a two-minute ferry ride away ($5 for a round trip).
There were four different places we could go to have our breakfast (which was included in our stay) and we especially liked the Lalita and the Twin City Coffee House.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Cons: No elevator, which is fine when you're headed down to the beach but absolutely horrible when trying to schlep luggage up and down the stairs. I heard the man next door cough and looked up in fear that he was actually in the room because the walls were so thin with no sound barrier. And don't even get me started on having to listen to the sounds of other people's sex and the bed banging against the wall on the other side of me--and up one flight!
The hotel is old and needs a lot of refurbishment. My room was clean but worn out and the bed was horrible. The mattress was just a step above sleeping on a concrete block.
Pros: Very friendly staff. And the Rum Runner restaurant was excellent. They had great food at reasonable prices.

I've stayed here a couple of times now while on work travel and have generally had a positive experience.

Pros: The staff are great- super-friendly and helpful. Convenient location right on the boardwalk, you can walk to to all of the old town easily. The adjacent Rum Runners is a great little bar in itself if you are lazy!

Cons: Caravelle is showing its age and I think the hotel suffers from water leakage problems. The rooms always smell musty, if not moldy. Another traveller next door to me had to be moved it bothered her asthma so much. The recently renovated rooms are in better condition for the moment. The nozzle in the shower is completely wrong for the setup and I have spent minutes trying to adjust the temperature and turn the water off! It is very strange. Parking lot is very small and cramped- it will test your parking skills.

The hotel is old and not well maintained. Carpets are placed at the outdoor balconies and the entire hotel suffers from the humid climate. We had 3 differnt rooms before finding a room that didn't that bad from mould.

Room Tip: If possible choose rooms at upper floors facing the habour.

This was my first visit. I didn't expect a 4 star hotel for what I paid, but I certainly feel that I got my money's worth. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was nice. My room was always clean when I returned from the morning dives with clean sheets and towels, and the air conditioner worked well. The pool was always clean as well. The great view of the bay and the convenience to everything in town were added bonuses. Additionally, the dive boat picked us up right there at the pier. I would definitely return.
