My fianc'ee and I spent a week here in late November of 2004. We were there to finalize a land purchase a few miles east of this resort. Our room was located on the bottom floor to the back edge of the structure. The view was spectacular with cerulean blue waters in the shallows that broke over a coral reef many yards offshore. The beach is private with lounge chairs and palm canopies. While the beach/water are not ideal they can be enjoyed none the less. There are other beaches close at hand that can be enjoyed more fully. The room was a little worn but very accomodating and comfortable. The unit was fully furnished and the service staff friendly and efficent. I noticed someone complain about the office. Yes, it does amount to chairs and a table outside under a large canopy. The employees use a very small office which houses the files, phones and computer. Heck, it's the caribbean! It's not like you have to endure torrential rainfall or freezing temps while you are assisted! The Breezes restaurant is a local hangout with decent food and staff. It isn't a 4 star eatery but most restaurants on the island aren't either. If you insist on the very best then these restaurants can be found. We tried many from Breeze's to TuTu Benni's to Durgan's Reef to Cheeseburger In Paradise. You get what you pay for. We were never disappointed. If you are looking for a true resort/spa then there are other places to stay. I'd recommend The Buccaneer or Divy. However, be prepared to spend a whole lot more money! The island is small and we chose to spend most of our time sightseeing. As such, Club St. Croix was ideal for our intentions. Get a car. It is by far the easiest means of travel although taxi service is very efficent. I just wouldn't want to walk all over as my sole means of transport...period. Lastly regarding safety, as in any place you might live or travel there are risks of crime. The area around the Club is improvished (as is much of the island) and reasonable caution should be taken to avoid areas off the beaten track, especially after dark. This applies to the whole island not just the surroundings of the Club. We never felt the least bit threatened or fearful during our stay. The locals were friendly enough and a greeting was always forthcoming. Most crime is petty and commited by locals on locals. Just be smart. If you're concerned about such issues then you should look at the crime rates in St. Thomas against tourists to compare! We're going back in March of 2005 for another week with the kids. I can't wait!!!
