We were looking for a nice quiet, relaxing place to spend our vacation. I had been to many islands in the area but never St. Croix so we decided to try it. At first I was looking online at the big resorts and somehow found the website to the Villa Margarita. It was the best choice we ever made. Had we gone with a large resort it would have been crowded and noisy...just the opposite of what we were looking for.
We had the one bedroom suite and the breeze was wonderful. Even though it was hot and humid, we never needed the AC. We ate breakfast and dinner on the balcony, overlooking the ocean. We went to sleep at night with the sliders open, listening to the waves hit the beach below us. We even spent a little time in the hammock for two, under the palm trees. Relaxation was what we wanted and the Villa Margarita delivered big time.
The suite was nicely decorated, keeping the theme of the tropics. It was just an extremely comfortable place. You could have housekeeping if you wanted it but it was so nice not to have anyone knocking on your door to make up the room or turn down the bed when you just wanted peace and quiet.
Rowdy Joe's and Off The Wall were 2 good restaurants not too far away. It was about a 20 minute drive into Christensted for other restaurants but the ride was fairly easy, given that the driving is on the left side. The distance into town was not a problem.
Adele and John were exactly what the other reviewers said...there if you needed them and not if you didn't. They had lots of suggestions on where to eat and what to do. They were the perfect hosts.
Even though we are not beach lovers or into snorkeling (probably the biggest reasons people go to the islands), we will definitely be back because of Adele, John and the Villa Margarita.
