“Amazing island paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I used to visit here annually but had not been for nine years. Hospitality, service and facilities are still as awesome as before. Rooms are exquisitely designed, airy and bright. Grounds are immaculate and landscaping is exotic and beautiful. I would never have known I was not in the Virgin Islands. Beach is beautiful with soft, white sand and plenty of gorgeous shells to collect. Staff is readily available to assist in in manner necessary and checks on guests throughout the day while they are enjoying the beach, hammocks or chairs to see if there is anything they can do to make the visit more enjoyable.

We needed a room at the last minute for two nights, we wanted to stay on the beach side, there was no availability for both nights in the same room so we were offered one night in the Flamingo and one night in the starfish. Both rooms exceeded our expectations. We loved how the property was laid out, decorated and landscaped, and very clean. This property may not appeal to everyone as it is very down to earth, but it definitely has personality with a view!! We are hoping to return when we can stay a bit longer.

Fantastic place. So calm, peaceful and laid back. We stayed in "Sandcastle Suite" with a wonderful view and a fantastic location. The best! Eric and Jeff were both so helpful and nice. The apartment was very clean and everything was in order and working as expected. The kitchen area was very well equipped as well. We really liked this place and hope we will be back again soon.

Room Tip: The apartements/ suites in the 3-story "main building" are the best, especially for couple...

Well just left the Cove and what can I stay, another fantastic visit. My wife and I used to check out and stay at other Resorts which I am sure a lot of people do. We started coming to the Resort in 2002 and have never stayed anywhere else. The rooms are very nice and have everything you could want in them. My wife likes to cook so when she is in the kitchen look out.

There beach is very large and they have many beach chairs and beach towels. The one thing my wife really likes is the cleanliness aspect it is unparallelled she is pretty much a neat freak to the enth degree. I will say that she has never been disappointed. As a matter of fact its a stretch but we didn't have a particular bowl that my wife likes to use for salads, they had someone go out and but one for us, now that's service.

Great staff, great place, keep it up

Thanks Frank

My husband and I love staying at Cedar Cove - this time we brought friends of ours so they can see how wonderful Cedar Cove and the island is. We stayed in the SandCastle Suite which has two bedrooms with two baths, it was perfect for us. The room as always, was very clean and the staff is wonderful. We always feel like family - the staff always makes sure that if you need anything they will accommodate. We had a couples massage under the tiki hut and it was so relaxing and wonderful. Our friends indicated that they will definitely return with us to Cedar Cove next year. Thank you again to the staff for a wonderful - fantastic stay!!!!! We definitely recommend this place.

When we arrived at Cedar Cove, it looked shabby from the outside, but sometimes thats not the whole story. We were booked into one of the penthouse suites. That meant that we had to lug our bags up 3 flights of extremely rickety wooden stairs. When we walked into the room, the first thing that I noticed was piles of dirt in all the corners, so I opened the pantry. The shelves were covered with dirt. The stove was covered in grease. To be fair, they refunded our money right away, but I would not recommend this resort if you care about cleanliness.

When Jeff cheerfully showed us to the Coral Reef suite, my first reaction was dismay. It was a tiny, low-ceilinged, cottage-y, sparsely furnished unit unlike any other accomodation we've stayed at in Florida. BUT as we settled in, we began to feel more and more comfortable. Everying was adequate and very clean. Soon we were really enjoying our patio, surrounded by plantings and flowers, and the garden as we walked the few steps directly out to the beach. We cooked just fine in the tiny kitchen and ate all our meals on the patio which was more lovely than any restaurant. We walked on the beach and sat for hours in the Tiki hut or the chairs in the "yard", listening to quiet music. Soon we were in love with Cedar Cove and felt "at home" in Coral Reef. Our suite was bordered by the small parking lot and everyone going to the beach walked by it. But it was surprisingly un-busy and the tall plants gave us some privacy. We often had the "yard" to ourselves. Everything was quiet by 10:00! We bought groceries at Publix and fish at the Star Fish Market (you aren't allowed to cook fish in your unit, but need to do it on the grills in the yard). The free trolley was a plus, and we took it all around the island from the City Pier to Leffis Key. When we return we will try to book a suite in the front building or the upstairs of the garden building even though that would mean climbing stairs; actually we really enjoyed just strolling out of our door, through the garden, to the beach and back and forth for more coffee.

Room Tip: Do good research on where your unit is located. Some are right on the beach, some are across the str...
