Wife and I have vacationed all over and while this may not be the most luxurious place it is the most relaxing and peaceful place we have ever stayed. We didn't ask for much from the staff, but when we did they were very accommodating. Was very nice to have the restaurant next door and we were able to use... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2016

I will add my voice to all the other reviewers who have raved about Cottages ! We spent 10 days there in mid-May and loved this special place. We stayed in the Commodore Villa, which was perfect for our needs. There is plenty of convenient storage in all the rooms and lots of counter space for the 'stuff' that's needed... More

This was our second year at Cottages by the Sea. June travels for the scuba divers in the family staying at this location could not be better for the divers and those who like to swim, sun and do some snorkeling we recommend this motel as a perfect spot with great people to make your stay very pleasant.

We were in town to visit relatives of my husband. It was a short three-day trip that wrapped up a two-week stay in Puerto Rico. The Cottages were less like a modern hotel and more like staying in a little local neighborhood. The staff was available every time we wandered to the office to ask a question. Cottages were clean...

Cottages by the Sea is a great place to stay! Everyone is so friendly. The cottages are clean and have everything you need. They are cottages, not upscale or modern, but very comfortable. The outside covered grilling area is wonderful and we used it almost nightly. The beach is gorgeous, sandy not rocky. They had plenty of chairs for the... More

We had an amazing time at cottages by the sea in the Compass Rose cottage. Our visit was in June, and there were never more than a few people on the beach. The water is beautiful and there was great snorkeling right off the beach! I am very late on this review, but just joined TripAdvisor and had to come... More

We chose Cottages for our first stay in St. Croix based on it's great beach location and excellent reviews. We wanted to be close to Sandy Point NWR because, while closed for the leatherback turtle nesting season, our daughter was going to be part of the "turtle team" who monitor the nesting. It turned out they also were put up... More

Thank you for review. The turtle researchers at Sandy Point have been staying with us at the cottages for many, many, years, so they are like family to us. We enjoy their company year after year, and we hope your daughter enjoyed being a park of this years team. We hope you choose to visit with us again one day... More
