My wife, 6yr old daughter and I just got back from a week at Caneel Bay and once again had a fantastic time. Our room on Hawksnest Beach (ground floor right on the beach) was great. Had a wonderful view of the water from our patio. The sea turtles were swimming about just a few yards off the beach, saw several rays swimming by as well.
Great beach for snorkeling. Turtles and Rays in the middle (grassy bottom, perfect for turtles), Lots of different corals and sea fans to our right along the rocks and lots of coral and fish on the left shore along the rocks. Parrot fish, Box fish, Grunts, Yellow Tail Snapper, Squirl fish, Baracuda etc.
The wonderful ladies who took care of our room were fantasitc as usual. All the staff, the grounds keepers, the shuttle drivers, the ladies in the gift shop, the coffee/icecream shop (Nice addition) always greated us with a warm smile. The woman at Varlack Jeep rental was also great. We had the B&B plan which was perfect for us, big breakfast, which was always great. We ate at both the terrace and Turtle Bay, No difference in food or service, both were EXCELLENT.
We rented a refrigerator (worth the $) and took a cab to the Starfish Market in Cruz Bay to get lunch supplies,snacks and RUM RUM RUM RUM.
Ate at Zozo one night had a good meal during a wonderful sunset. Other nights we went into town or at at the Beach Bar restaurant had Sushi which was excellent. Amber was our server several times and she was GREAT!
Did the Sunset Cruise again and once again had a wonderful time. The staff were very attentive and the steel drum and guitar music were perfect for the mood, the hors d'oeuvres were great as well, and all the rum punch we could drink. Who could ask for any thing more.
Our daughter did the Kids Club one morning and had a great time. She loved the Deer (with babies and Donkeys (baby donkey too).
There's nothing like waking up in the mourning and sitting out on our patio, sipping a cup of coffee, hearing waves lap at the beach and watching the sun rise over the mountains. Heaven!
Did the New Horizons Breakaway Charters day trip to Virgin Gorda for the Baths, lunch at Pussers and topping it off with a stop at Soggy Dollar. This is a must do trip. Make sure you bring your passport(s). Michelle and Capt. John were great.
Could go on and on about the great time we had. We love it there. Can't wait to get our daughter's spring break schedule for next year so we can make our reservations.
See you next year.
