We just returned from a Sugar Beach condos two week stay. First, some mentioned low income housing across the road as an issue. These units are quiet, clean, and never bothered us in the least. I have seen far worse on other islands and in the states.
My biggest disappointment is the beach area. It is a wide beach with new lounges, but it is not good swimming due to rocks on the beach and duck weed in the water. I love to go in the ocean when in the Caribbean and this was not appealing. (We went to Buccaneer, and Protestant Cay hotel on the Cay). The sand is not powdery but filled with little shell pebbles making it hard to walk. If you like a swimming pool there is a beautiful pool onsite with new lounges, we just happen to like the beach.
The condos are about 30 years old. Our particular unit had outdated furnishings. I know the units vary according to owners, but ours definitely needed updating. The unit was very clean with kitchen well appointed. Units have a huge porch facing the ocean which is an added plus. The residents of this complex are very friendly and welcoming. They went out of their way to welcome us and answer any questions. Every day at 5 anywhere from 4 to 20 owners and renters meet at the pool for cocktails. We went and were warmly included in their group. They even got together and had a lobster roast one evening.
This complex is quite close to town and restaurants, but you definitely needs a car. Some other complexes are much further away from everything. (grocery, restaurant).
If you are visiting for warm weather, great ocean views, and a beautiful pool this is a great spot. Beachgoer not so great. We also went to several spots for snorkeling and were disappointed, one spot that was rated "excellent" we had to walk on slippery rocks on a narrow path with sea urchins on both sides and then the reef was dead with no fish. We did visit several other complexes and I have to say St Croix is not known for their great beaches. Most had reefs close to shore, rocky, with pebbly sand. We did enjoy going to Protestant Cay, but looking back at it I will not be going back to St Croix.
