Stayed here for a week with my friend May 3 thru May 10th. We had a great, newly done bungalow with a kitchen, iron board, etc. The room was very clean and had a queen and king bed, so with one bed, i can imagine it would appear to have more room. it was just what we were looking for. someplace quiet, peaceful, without the usual trappings of a large hotel, like expensive drinks, outrageous prices and crowded beaches. one day the manager brought us a fresh mango and few minutes later a worker brought us a freshly opened coconut. that would never happen at a big resort. we enjoyed sitting by the ocean, on one of the lounges provided. there was never more than 10 people sitting at the beach so it was quiet, and nice and great to read at. they also have a pool that had some leaves in it (so not a big deal people) but was a little too warm to be as refreshing as going in the ocean. but the surrounding area was clean and nice. please understand that the place is not fancy and it does show its wear and tear, but the manager is doing her best to maintain it. her employees have worked for her on an average of 10 years each and enjoy working there and is reflected in their attitude which is friendly and helpful and kind. the restaurant had some simple things, that were very good, and the beer and wine or whatever you wanted was ice cold. we enjoyed meeting a local electrician that answered all of our questions about the people and customs of st. croix, without hesitation. we also enjoyed swimming with three little local kids, and meeting their mother. they were polite and fun and truly enjoyed the sea. at 5:30 pm the turtles pop their heads up while feeding and i can imagine that with a free snorkel, which the hotel provides, you could see them easily, as they are only 15 feet off shore. their is a beach and a place to go for a walk on the beach, and both were clean. i found no problems with this place at all. not only did i not find any problems, but am most likely going to go back at another time with my husband. there are many things to do on the island, and we paddle boarded and took a snorkeling trip, all reasonably priced. we also rented a jeep and we would seriously, if you are the type of person that needs to be sure where they are driving (we were not, and enjoyed the adventure of trying to find places) to get either a GPS or a map that is NOT from the rental car agency and it is vague and small and half of the roads are not on it.
i highly recommend chenay bay and would return. its location is great, not too close to town, not too far, with dining choices abounding. i loved this place, and i have been to many beach resorts, but i enjoyed the individual attention, getting to know the locals, and the fun of setting off on an adventure without any idea where we would end up. also, the air conditioning in the rooms are fantastic, and cool off the room immediately.
