“Best Place We've Stayed in a Long Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Comfortable room and amazing breakfast. Jennifer and Lionel are pleasant, helpful and a joy to be around. We just spent a week with them and I can't imagine staying anywhere else if we return to St. Croix. Lionel is in the process of building a meeting room next to the Inn which will be a help to larger groups that stay there. It is a quiet spot very close to the Salt River Bay Marina, where diving and kayak tours can be arranged. A small refrigerator in the room was helpful.

I can't begin to tell you how nice Arawak Bay is. We needed a one night stay as our flight back to the mainland was not until Sunday and we had to be out of the vacation rental on Saturday. Arawak Bay was recommended and are we ever glad. Jennifer was wonderful. Even though we would be leaving very early (flight was 8:30AM and we had to be at the airport by 6:30), and would be gone for the regular breakfast hours, she said we needed to eat before we left, especially since we had small children. Breakfast would be simple - waffles, coffee and juice. It was terrific. Our only regret was that we had to leave so early - we can only dream what the normal breakfast would be! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The view was awesome. The pool was refreshing and there was even an "honor bar". Thank you Jennifer!

First time here. The owners could not have been nicer ! Quiet, clean B&B rooms. Breakfast is great . Small pool onsite. Honor bar and gas grill is next to the pool area. A nice touch. Cell phones don't work due to no towers nearby, but for solitude and a nice view, this place can't be beat. Rates are competitive and reasonable. I would recommend for anyone wanting a great value.

Room Tip: Upstairs overlooking the water

The owners were friendly and accommodating (vegan). They prepared delicious special meals for us to meet our dietary restrictions. The hotel was clean and the view from our room breathtaking! We had a rental car which was useful for traveling around and getting back. We had a pleasant and relaxing stay. If we were to come back to Saint Croix, we would most definitely stay here!

My sister & I had such a terrific weekend enjoying St Croix during AgFair this February. Staying at Arawk Inn was a such a treat and so enhanced our stay. Lionel and Jennifer are not only gracious hosts but very helpful and friendly. Being from St John we enjoyed conversations with them about island "tings". The breakfasts were delicious and many choices were available. Our room was spacious, CLEAN, and we enjoyed our view while sitting on porch. Looking forward to going back next year. Louise & Marcy

WOW!!!!!!!! Where can I start. Flew to St. Croix to attend an Acuaponics Workshop @UVI... Showed up at Arawak Bay Inn at Salt Water without a reservation in a small island to see what could I get. Stayed 5 days/4 nights and it will be an unforgettable trip. From the time we showed up, we were kindly received by Tony and Nahim, who immediately made us feel like they knew us all of our lives. We felt we were at our own B & B but to another level. Cute pool, nice grill (thanks Lionel... The Tilapia was AMAZING!!!), meticulously clean bathrooms, hallways, living room and facilities. Also, had the best breakfast for 5 days-in-a-row that I've had in my entire life, thanks to Lionel and his above-and-beyond cooking skills. Slept like a baby in the soooo comfortable and clean-smell beds... Jennifer and Lionel will definitely make a short trip, honeymoon or vacation a memorable one for years to come. if you call in advance, they will come and get you at the airport. Arawak Bay Inn @ Salt River; romantic, quiet, inmaculate cleaness, inspiring and full of love and warmness...

Thanks you very much for an above-and-beyond service better than many 4 & 5 star hotels!!!

Room Tip: Room 16 is in the corner and you can come and go as you please and never get bothered or bother anyo...
