“Perfect "home" for St. Croix visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

If you're going to St. Croix you will not find a better spot to stay than the Arawak Inn. On the advice of a friend I booked a room for two nights at this beautifully appointed home-like bed and (wonderful) breakfast. I add my praise of Jennifer and Lionel, who designed, built and operate this treasure. Large, well furnished rooms each opening out to a beautiful veranda facing the sea on the north shore of the island. I will return next year for a longer stay. I've been home for a month now and can still feel the warmth of my short visit. You will not be sorry you booked here.

Room Tip: I was on the second floor with a great view of the sea.

We had the pleasure of staying at Arawak for only 2 nights. We truly enjoyed the quiet and peaceful nights of rest and the beautiful views during the day. Jennifer and her staff are so friendly. They are very accommodating and hospitable hosts that catered to our every need. We are very grateful that Jennifer took some time out of her busy day to escort us on a hike to the Tidal Pools. It was very exhilarating and so beautiful. It was definitely off the beaten path. We would highly recommend Arawak to anyone looking for some real R & R.

Jennifer and Lionel are amazing. So kind and hospitable. Lionel's breakfast is phenomenal and Jennifer's hospitality is topped by no other. The rooms are clean and comfortable with everything you need. Convenient location on the North Shore.

Jane and I spent a week at this lovely inn on north shore near the Salt River Estuary. It's a quiet spot on St Croix with a great seaview. Hosts Jennifer and Lionel were extremely friendly and consistently aimed for every guest to have an excellent stay. The breakfasts were varied and always excellent. The pool was well maintained and welcoming after a day of touring and whatnot. We chose this place to stay because of its excellent reviews and their excellent rates. If I have used 'excellent' too many times in this review, sorry. That's the way we feel about Arawak Bay Inn. It's excellent.

This is our second time here, and we love it....Jennifer and Lionel are wonderful, breakfast is great and the rooms are nice , a very good buy for the money. As before, they are anxious to help in any way, so you really get the feel of being in someone's home rather than at an impersonal hotel.

I stayed here with a large group of people. Jennifer and Lionel are wonderful people and wonderful hosts. They are always willing to stop and chat no matter how busy it was. The inn is away from hustle and bustle which, if you would rather not drive is a problem. This place is a gem in the hills. Jennifer and Lionel are great cooks, but if you are looking for a night out can give you the run down of the local eats. There is a beach, kayak rental, and bar in a 15 minute walking distance. The rooms are spacious (even the double occupancy ones) and the cleaning staff where excellent as well. The view from the upstairs balcony is gorgeous as well. I plan on returning whenever I can.

The Arawak is amazing. Jennifer and Lionel went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. Not only did they cook great food for us, they helped accommodate our stay by helping us plan events and even accompanied us to various locations. I would never stay anywhere else. I highly recommend a stay here of you really want to experience the culture of St. Croix. I will definitely be back!
