I'll start with the positives. Carambola is a beautiful property. We traveled all over the island and didn't see a property as beautiful as Carambola. It's remotely located on a beautiful calm beach. It's quiet and the property expansive. The pool is nice with lots of places to relax. The rooms are dated but very clean. The ocean view is amazing. The staff was helpful and very nice. Shout out to Pearl at the front desk and Lizette at the bar. Negative. NO AMENITIES at all. Breakfast is served from 7 to 9 am. It costs $18 per person and the quality and selection is worse than the free breakfast at the Holiday Inn. So, if you wake up after 9 am, there is no coffee. You must drive at least 10 minutes to find a cup of coffee. After that, the bar doesn't open until 4 pm. So you're on your own for food or drink until 4 pm. If you want to hang out and relax all day, you can't. Sometimes, you just want to sit by the pool and order food and drinks. Not at Carambola. We drove into town on our first day and stocked up on drinks and snacks. When I'm on vacation, I want to be able to order a salad or meal from the bar, not go to my room to make a sandwich. Funny thing, signs at the pool and beach say "no coolers or glass" So, you're obligated to leave your chaise and walk quite a distance to fill up your solo cup from your room if it's before 4 pm. After 4 pm, the food selection is minimal. It looked tasty but we didn't eat there. The bar served mostly beer and tropical drinks, the wine looked dicey. Lizette makes a killer rum punch. All in all, I would return but know what I'm getting into. I'm so thankful that we had a car. Taxis would be difficult to find and probably very expensive.

It was my husband's birthday and we travelled to Carambola to celebrate it just two of us. Guest Relations Manager Billy provided a complimentary upgrade to an Ocean view room that felt more like a private villa. They decorated room with balloons and banners and brought a bottle of champagne (extra cost per my request). It was a tottal surprise for my husband. Hotel's location is very private, had it's own sandy beach and crystal clear water. Room had a small kitchenett that allowed us to prepare snacks, while dinner was held on a beautiful terrace where Lizette (bartender) was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back!

What I first liked about the property is that there is a security post at the entrance, which includes a temperature check. Having traveled through inner city Christened, the security at the resort gave me a huge sense of comfort. The initial covid procedures were comforting also. There are signs throughout the property reminding guests to keep masks on in public areas. The property itself was clean, I didn't see any additional indication that there was extra sanitization going on, but there was a large bottle of sanitizer in our room and sanitizer in the small lobby. The rooms were nice, but needed to be more thoroughly cleaned. The sight of dust and/cobb or spider webs, gave me the impression that the room was not in cleaned often or well enough. There is a lot of beautiful dark wood in the room and it should have been gleaming. The countertops were beautiful granite and it also should have been gleaming. This brought about concerns about if the chair cushions and bed linens were cleaned properly also. An air freshener would go a long way in a room, something welcoming to guests. The bed was mediocre at best. The mattress could definitely use some updating (better quality) and the linens, although clean, were an off white color. I prefer my linens white. The sound and breeze from the ocean in conjunction with the ceiling fan was an amazing combination to sleep and awake to each day. The bathroom was spacious, a double vanity with granite. Aveda products provided. There was a balcony with an ocean view, which we absolutely loved. As I stated before I just wish that there was thorough cleaning and dusting completed. The sound and breeze from the ocean on the balcony made it our favorite area. The staff was very lackluster. Noone gave me a welcoming island feel. The front desk attendant upon check-in was professional, and accommodating to change my room once I informed her that I preferred a non-ground level unit. But again, she was not friendly or welcoming. The desk attendant the following day was far worse, even giving my husband attitude when he inquired about if his lost phone had been found and turned in. I think he disturbed her study session because she appeared to be completing school work. The one bartender was cool, seemed a bit overwhelmed, but she handled the very small crowd well. The amenities.. well right now there aren't any. Food options was limited to the one bar and grill. The food was good, but being on an island I expected more seafood options. The beach was nice and very private. The farther end was better softer sand with less rocks. You did have to ask for beach towels from the front desk, a bit of an inconvenience. Towels closer to the beach would be a plus. Speaking of towels, we never once received fresh towels or wash rags in our room during our 3 night stay, even after requesting them. Clearly there was no sense of urgency. The resort as a whole has a lot of potential. I understand the struggles that covid has brought forth and you can see the impact in the staffing levels, amenities, and cleanliness. However; the property seems terribly mismanaged and neglected. Considering that businesses have taken a huge hit this year, simply catering to the limited number of guests could make a difference. This place was really beautiful, but the issues that I stated would prevent me from returning.

I hate writing such a negative review - but I really want to make sure nooone makes the mistake I made. This was by far the worst experience I've had at a Marriott property. It does not belong in the portfolio and it appears Marriott knows this since they stripped the Renaissance name from the property. I saw negative reviews on TripAdvisor, but trusted the 4.0 review on the Marriott website. I thought, "it's Marriott/Renaissance property, must be a bunch of Karens complaining on TripAdvisor. Nope. Never again. After I rotten experience I tried to leave a review on the Marriott website - guess what, you can't unless you are invited to. I'd love to know who got the invitations and rated it 4.0 The hotel and rooms are a shamble. The pictures of the property on the Marriott website have to be 10-15 years old. The property is run down, and half of it looks abandoned. The nightly power outages, and crappy frozen food at the "restaurant" wrapped it up. The entire property just felt dirty and our room looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. Dirt, dust, dead bugs, and a non-working phone. We called and went to the desk several times to get the room serviced and clean towels and linens - which we did get - three days later. If they are taking any COVID precautions it's hard to tell - outside a couple bottles of watered down hand sanitizer. You can see that this once was and may someday be an incredible property; until then avoid it.

The room was absolutely disgusting. Bugs everywhere, very run down, smells like mold, cobwebs everywhere, dirty sheets. When we asked to move to a different room it took them an hour to look for a different room. When they showed us the next room, it had equally as many insects. They said they are rebuilding from the 2017 storms, but it looks as if NO progress has been made, then the GM of the hotel suggested we move to a different hotel as all the rooms were equally as run down. They have one restaurant open on site with a very limited menu, which stops serving breakfast at 9am and does not open again until 5pm, so you are on your own for lunch. This is in a very remote part of the island, so there is no food or entertainment for at least 20 minutes in any direction. The staff was very friendly, but this place may as well be condemned. They also do not keep the grounds maintained, everything was wildly overgrown, so make sure to bring LOTS of bug spray. I understand we traveled for our honeymoon during Covid and its difficult, but this hotel has not been cleaned or properly managed since LONG before covid.
