“Fifth time as good as the first”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We just returned from another week at the Villa Margarita and it never grows old...we love going there and when we leave, start making plans for the following year. We're not people who like going back to the same place but we make an exemption when it comes to the Villa Margarita. We stay in the one bedroom suite and love sitting on the balcony to read, eat, drink and just enjoy the scenery. This year we saw whales and shooting stars while sitting there. We always eat at Cheeseburgers in Paradise, Rowdy Joes and Angry Nate's. This year we tried the chicken barbeque place Adele recommended on Rte. 75 and it was as good and reasonably priced as she said. We also went into Fredricksted (go only when a cruise ship is in so things are open) and ate at Polly's at the Pier. If you like ice cream, make sure you go to Armstrong's for homemade ice cream. This year Adele and John (animal lovers) had a brochure about a program that has visitors to the island bringing back a homeless dog to the states where they're met at their final destination by someone from a no-kill shelter or foster home and given a second chance for happiness. We did it and it was such a heart-warming experience.

If you're looking for a nice clean, quite place to stay, check out the VM. You'll feel like it's your own private place. St. Croix is billed as America's Paradise but the real paradise is the VM.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any room.

Adele, who was our primary contact at the Villa Margarita was amazing. Her tips, encouragements and other helpful suggestions on where to go, swim, ride horses, eat & watch the St Patty's Day parade among others made this one of the best places we have stayed in a long time. Our room had a cross breeze, the sounds of the ocean, a little patio with a great view, a kitchen and a very comfortable bed. In addition, she hosted a cocktail hour by the pool three times in a week. What isn't too like? It was just what the doctor ordered!!! Go

Room Tip: We liked the first floor studio. It is smaller than the others but the only one with a cross breeze...

When my wife and I decided to go to St Croix we wanted to stay at a B&B that had peace and quiet with all of the amenities of home. Well, thanks to Adele these well-appointed accommodations lived up to the five star ratings and more. I tend to be very fussy about things like upkeep and maintenance of facilities and cleanliness. When we walked into our room it was one of the first things that I noticed, everything was spotless, neat and in excellent order. As advertised on the website “Each one of our suites are self-contained with kitchenette equipped with microwave, refrigerator, 2 burner hotplate, toaster oven, electric skillet, blender, coffee maker, dishes and pots and pans to satisfy your basic cooking needs.” This made it very convenient to eat in or out and if you wanted to bring home leftovers from dinner it was no problem. In the cupboard there were some standard spices for cooking, coffee, filters, lots of silverware, an electric wine opener and on and on. Sitting on the kitchen table was a bottle of Cruzan Mango Rum for our consumption and on the coffee table was a folder with a list of everything you need to know about activities, restaurants, places to go emergency info, etc. The pictures on the website are exactly how the place is, which is not always the case with some properties. If you want solitude and don’t want an innkeeper in your face, this is your place. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Any room is nice.

This was a fantastic, amazing spot - you won't be disappointed. We had a room facing the water, and went to sleep every night hearing the sound of the ocean and feeling the cool breeze of the water. Perfection. The room was more than spacious, we had our bedroom (facing the water), a sitting room, and a separate kitchen and bathroom. Adele was fantastic, and hosted a happy hour one of the evenings. It's a bit out of the way, so you definitely need a car, but you won't be disappointed. Next time we are back in St. Croix, we'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: I think they are all facing the ocean, but if not, try to get a room with an ocean view. Spectacular...

My husband & I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Margarita on our very first trip to St Croix in August of 2013. I chose it because of all the favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. We could not have been happier!! It is the only place we will stay on any of our future trips (of which we hope there will be many!!) back to St. Croix. John & Adele are perfect hosts....so helpful with information & recommendations. PERFECT location. We went to bed and work up with the view of the ocean from our bed---it was difficult leaving our room each morning. On our first day we saw sting rays swimming off the beach from our deck. Close to some of the best restaurants on the island as well. Be sure to visit Rowdy Joe's which is just up the road! We cannot wait to go back!

I have had the pleasure of staying at Villa Margarita a few times over the last several years and it seems like it gets better and better every time I go back. If you are looking for amazing accommodations, peace and quiet, gorgeous scenery and most of all, gracious hosts, then VM is the place for you! Adele and John treat all their guests like long-time friends. They will share their island knowledge with you so you can get the most from your experience. They are what makes VM a top notch property.

All suites have gorgeous views, with a sea breeze that is so refreshing, you won't need the AC. You can go shopping to pick up the essentials for quick meals and snacks. Adele and John host a happy hour or 2 during the week and there are a few restaurants that are close by to venture out to as well.

VM truly is a beautiful, tranquil, well-maintained property and I am looking forward to my next visit. Thanks to Adele and John for making my vacation all that I needed it to be!!

Room Tip: Every room is perfect!

We visited because of a family funeral but nothing was too much bother. Stayed up late for us to arrive and accommodation was the 1st floor studio. It had everything you could need and more. Nothing was too much trouble with Adele and John who were perfect hosts. Wish it could have been better circumstances to enjoy even more but we were not holidaying but would recommend perfect place for anyone to stay at. Couples / Honeymooners / family's could enjoy. Just perfect !

Room Tip: All rooms were good to stay at.
