“Great Accommodation and Awesome staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I have been traveling to St. Croix for years and stay at the same place all the time. When the department of tourism was running a promotion, I decided to try a different place to stay. So I called Arawak to get some info on there place and spoke with Jennifer. After a 10 minute conversation with Jennifer, I didn't hesitate to book my stay. The place was incredibly clean and the staff were very polite. As for Jennifer, she was awesome! Very accommodating and her breakfast every morning were great! So after my 25th visit to the Island I would highly recommend the Arawak as one the best places to stay on the island and for the money!

Mama Jennifer and Lionel are like family. The service was superb and the property is beautiful.
A different breakfast every morning and not the typical continental type. The views are breathtaking! The art decor around the property is definitely professional, by local talent and gallery worthy. I have to tell all my friends and family and I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean, however, reserve as early as possible.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Arawak Bay. The owners were more than pleasant and ensured that our stay was comfortable. They went over and beyond ensuring that our stay was pleasant and informing us about the island. Unfortunately we only stayed one night because we were meeting up with family but I would have enjoyed staying there the whole week. The owners cooked a breakfast for us better than Grandmas! :) I talked about the stay at Arawak all the way back home and my husband insisted I make a comment on tripadvisor telling others. It is a great place to stay and surely worth your money. We will definitely be returning guests to this establishment.

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!
