Stayed here in August while seeing St John NP. Just a few blocks from the ferry dock it's easy to get to. All of the downtown sites and restaurants are minutes away. Local car rentals are also close-by. There is no parking on-site buy pay lots are close by. Breakfast was continental in nature and fresh every morning. The room... More

I am so glad to have found this boutique property. I stayed there twice in July and will definitely return. David, Denise and Kathy took care of our every need, from the first frantic call to find a place with A/C, to recommending places to eat and things to do. The rooms are immaculate and I was surprised how quiet... More

My hubby and I found this place purely by accident. We stayed for 3 nights after finding ourselves in a not too nice a AIRBNB. The host was the most pleasant and the accommodations were lovely. It was clean and well maintained and right in the center of town. No need to stay at the overpriced villas located outside of... More

We had a quick stay in St. John so we opted to stay in Cruz Bay as opposed to getting a villas further away. We had never stayed in Cruz Bay and were worried about potential noise but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel. The service was exceptional, going out of their way to tend to...

There is not much more to say about this great little hotel that I have not said before except our third stay was as great if not better than the previous two. Our room this time was #8 which has its own nice sized balcony facing the street. We loved ending our nights here with a drink and some people... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for three nights (July 23 through July 26, 2016). We had stayed a few times before in the past few years and it had been fine, except for noisy AC units and small showers, but this time was by far our best experience. I do not know if the Room # had... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Cruz Bay Hotel on the first two nights of our 10 day vacation in July. David & Denise were gracious hosts and make us feel very welcome. We enjoyed the continental breakfast (Denise's pastries & muffins are to die for) and our chats with David each morning. The location is close to... More

The Canadian family who own and run this small hotel have created a quaint, European style guest house in a superb downtown location. You can easily walk to great restaurants, shops, car/jeep rentals, and (especially) the ferry to St. Thomas. The continental breakfast is superb, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and there is a sense of community with... More

After an eventful trip to STJ, we were welcomed by Denise at the Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel. You can tell that she and David take pride in their establishment. The hotel is an easy 1.5-2 block walk from the ferry terminal and easy to find. Also convenient to restaurants, waterfront, convenience store, taxis. Check-in was simple, just paying the remainder...

You can't beat the location... You literally walk from the ferry to the hotel doorsteps. Friendly staff and very willing to provide recommendations. It's great if you want to rent a car from the neighboring dealers because you can park in their lots. Light breakfast in the morning was the perfect way to get the day started. Clean beach towels...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel is an intimate accommodation made up of 10 guest rooms and one penthouse apartment suite. The hotel was completely renovated in 2010 and 2013 blending chic Miami boutique hotel decor with the more casual style of an island villa. The result is a clean, simple yet elegant venue. The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Cruz Bay town's best restaurants, bars and shopping. This lively location is the perfect spot for accessing all of St. John's beaches and attractions. Just around the corner from the ferry dock (only 250 feet away), Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel is the closest accommodation upon arrival to St. John. No taxi or rental car is required and there are no hills or winding roads to traverse - just stroll on over. ... more   less
