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.
