This was my second time to the "resort" . Against my better judgement, it was my friends decision. The "resort" is on a main st. so don't plan on sleeping (loud thumping music with cars driving by) the sheets are the YMCA's throw backs, I had two repeat issues with my room to no solution! Cruise ship travelers are sold beach chairs and crowd the beach with smoking, drinking too much and talking too loud on cell phone's "MAA- GUESS WHERE I AM,,,, I'M ON THE BEACH IN ST.CROIX.....ST.CROIX...." yes you get the point. Cruisers in for the day to eat, drink, smoke and leave the beach with their trash and cigarette butts. Now for the good part - this "resort" charges $12.67 a day for a "Energy Charge" what for? They claim to offer a "Continental Breakfast" stale muffins, luke warm coffee and only one toaster. Not a piece of fruit to be found or a staff member for that matter. I had two operational issues with my room and had to move twice! No compensation was offered, actually I barely got an apology.
This place is not the most expensive on the on island but for a few dollars more, you can get an exceptionally nicer place to vacation. P.S. As Woman traveling along we were told by the staff that Fredrikstead is "NOT" safe to walk around at night, - FYI. Check out the other side of the island.
