We were here in April and back again in July. Wanted to see what all the hype was. Enjoyed it. Great beaches great snorkeling. We stayed on a first floor unit at hawks nest beach both times. We would stay there again with kids. We ate at Zozos which is on property but not owned by the resort. Best meal... More

This is hands down my favorite place to go on St. John. I've been coming to St. John since i was a kid, but Caneel is always the place I want to go for a number of reasons. Service is second to none. There is no detail too small. You have a team dedicated to your needs and your room.... More

Enjoyed a nice ocean room, but what sets Caneel Bay apart from everybody is their service, truly outstanding! The food is beyond good, and the variety is quite spectacular with fresh grilled fish at your table. BIG DOG

Caneel Bay is a near perfect resort. From the moment we arrive at the airport in St. Thomas to the moment we left, it was one of the best experiences of my life. The resort is nestled inside a national park, which by the way is super rare, and the mountains around it at night are not lit up by... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful time in Caneel Bay. It was everything our travel agent said it would be and more. We were treated so kindly and they thought of everything we could possibly need. It was truly a little bit of paradise.

I'll admit it's been years since I went to Caneel Bay. It might have blown up for all I know. But this was one of the most romantic, relaxing anniversaries my wife and I ever had. You boat over from St. Thomas. The resort buildings are no more than two stories tall. You arrive to a cleanly appointed room without... More

If you are a lover of beaches, go to Caneel. Caneel has everything that a beachbum (like me) loves - numerous (mostly empty) beaches, powdery white sand, crystal clear water, turtles and wildlike, a laidback vibe, hiking, friendly service and excellent food. We stayed at Caneel for 7 nights in March 2015 and we fell in love with it. I... More

We stayed here for our Anniversary with our 7 year old. They were very accommodating. We were at another property on the island and had to make a last minute change due to poor conditions. The staff was great. The rooms were nice, not fancy, but very comfortable. The linens were very nice. They had turn down service every night... More

We have visited this resort many times and many other sea side resorts. The vision by Rockefeller was amazing in evolving and constructing the land and cottages - simple and quality with an amazing land lay-out far superior to any other place in carribean and we hae visited all of them. The only downside is the service which has been... More

We were at Caneel Bay for a couple of nights in July 2016. I have been to the resort many times over the years and I love that you can stay at a different one of their seven beaches every time. It doesn't fell like you're going to the same place over and over again because of it. We stayed... More
