My family spent four nights at this hotel over our Spring Break and what a wonderful time - one of the best vacations we have ever had! We booked a first floor beachfront room (25), which was great for our son to be able to go in and out. We had a nice patio and a very short walk to the beach beyond. We had chickens, roosters and baby chicks visiting us on our patio daily. If you are seeking a place for relaxation that is not crowded, then this is the place for you! The Monday night Caribbean night was really fun. We saw the mocko jumbies stilt walkers and the fire dancers. The food was very good with the exception of the ribs - no one in our party cared for them but there were many other options, all of which were delicious. The drinks at the bar were all wonderful and we have a new favorite drink - "Lime in de Coconut" which we will forever be comparing to others back honme as to how they were prepared. Several extra touches were provided at this hotel which we really enjoyed. The bottle of Cruzan rum and cokes in the room upon arrival was a nice touch after a long day of travel to get there. Also, the snorkeling right off the beach was fabulous. Two in our party signed up for the day snorkeling and along with another family, had an hour and 20 minutes instruction in the pool until the Mitch the guide was satisfied that all were comfortable and knew what they were doing. Then the fun part - snorkeling out in the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Mitch took pictures during the snorkeling expedition and provided the photos to us the same day! All of this was free of charge! You can tell that Mitch goes over and above the call of duty to assure that guests are having a great time. Once having completed the day snorkeling, they were able to go on a night snorkeling expedition which was quite a thrill for our son, who was able to hold an Octopus, brittle star, puffer fish, and sea cucumber and again all of this was captured via digital images and we were again given a disk to take home as a souvenier. While we were in St. Croix, we did the Gecko's ATV tour from 10 am - 12 noon and we all thoroughly enjoyed this. Everyone was so friendly, the food was great, so good that we really felt no need to go elsewhere. The beach is very nice and relaxing and I parked myself under a coconut palm and really felt like I got a chance to relax. Each time we called for a taxi, we ended up getting the same driver and he was very friendly and helped us navigate and personalized it so we got to see all the things we wanted to. I cant wait to go back here. One thing (minor) that could be improved would be more loungechairs available on the beach. I was debating between Renaissance Carambola Beach and this place and we felt like we made the right choice for our needs. The Renaissance is a little far removed from Christianstad and all the things to do and some of the taxis said they really dont go out there after 6 pm in the evening, so transportation could be an issue there if you dont have a rental car. Take the time to learn about the AC remote, as rooms can be quite humid and stuffy without the right AC adjustment. We had no trouble adjusting the AC to make the roon quite comfortable. Bathroom was spacious and updated with ample counter space and storage.
