“You can truly hear the waves, so refreshing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The waves at cane bay is truly the most relaxingl place on the north shore of St Croix. the rooms have balcony that overlooks the beautiful colors of the Caribbean Sea.The room was also newly renovated with a full kitchen. The bathroom wasvery well maintained and clean with good water pressure and plenty of towels. You can also tell the beds were new and very comfortable. there is a saltwater grotto pool down on the beach that is my favorite feature of this hotel. The hotel also has a restaurant right about the grotto that serves dinner with pick your own lobster and fresh catch of the day fish specials. This is a must try! Great service and food with a fully stocked bar. I give the waves at cane bay an A+ for value and location. Looking forward to coming back next year... Thank you to the owner Laura and her two cute dogs.

I stayed here for a few days and couldn't have asked for a better location, service, and experience. The owner was so accommodating, the views were picture perfect (every room is on the water), and everything was nice and clean. Don't forget to make reservations at the restaurant literally ON the water and pick your own lobster. The waitstaff boys will joke and make you feel at home, not to mention are easy on the eyes ;-) I would absolutely stay there again. As a matter of fact, I'm going to!

This place has so many positives, the best being the one from which it gets its name. The sound of waves all night was so soothing and the views over the water were great. Rooms were big and clean and bed was comfy. Kitchen was pretty well equipped- only thing missing was spoons- we had to eat our cereal with forks until we smuggled out some plastic spoons from a restaurant! Bathroom was clean and water pressure was decent. We arrived late on a sunday due to delays in our flight to the island, which meant it would be hard to shop for breakfast suppliers. Our host gave us a very thoughtful basket of goodies with cereal and enough milk for the first day, granola bars, a bag of microwave popcorn and a couple of other snacks.

The main downside for us was that the AC was way too small for the room. We actually were put in 2 other rooms before the one we finally stayed in, both of which had broken AC units. The one we lived in for a week had AC but not enough to make the room truly cool. It was better than nothing but we didn't have a sheet over us at night any night we were there b/c we were so hot. Other things that were not as great was that the host did not give good local info. For example, the night we arrived there was a weekly pigroast at the restaurant nearest the hotel, but when we asked about places to eat that evening she didn't even mention it. We didn't find out til the next day and were not there a week later when the next pig roast party happened. A similar thing happened the next night in which again we missed a once a week event b/c she didn't think to let us know it was an option. I guess its not her job to be our tour guide, but as the nearest thing to a concierge, it would have been nice to have a good hold on the events in the area and to share that information with guests. The other thing I guess was more my error was that reading the site description I got the impression that you'd walk out of your room and onto cane bay, where in reality cane bay was a 5 minute walk down a rather busy road. Its certainly walking distance, but not as easy when schlepping mask, fins etc for snorkeling as I had hoped when booking the trip. Overall though, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a room away from the crowd.

Our stay at the waves was amazing! we felt like we were on Fantasy Island. Laura, the owner, couldn't have been more attentive, making sure that our stay was everything we wanted. The room was great...large enough and very comfortable. THE VIEW OFF OUR BALCONY WAS BREATHTAKING!! we saw beautiful sunsets. Laura recommended several local places for lunch that were some of the best food we have eaten. in addition, the food at the Waves restaurant was right up there with the best restaurants we have eaten at in the States. Chef is very talented. Fresh fish dishes were to die for! Nearby beach was perfect for sunbathing. we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Have stayed at theWaves several times over the last few years. The property improves every year. Rooms are clean and sitting right on the ocean. Sunsets are magnificant and the restaurant is top notch!

Pros: This is a hybrid between a hotel, vacation rental and a B&B. It is owned and run by Laura who takes great care of her guests. The rooms are nice (get one on the 2nd floor).
The views are phenomenal and the food is fantastic. It is quiet and nice. On the water, breathtaking views of the endless ocean.
Cons: no breakfast or lunch facilities on site. Only dinner (did I say the food was fantastic). It does come with a mini kitchen if you care to make your own. No beach as such although it's on the water.
Other:
There's 3 places within walking distance that serve food (lunch, drinks and dinner)
Get a rental car - you will need it. Rent from Centerline (local, cheap, and convenient).
Plan your activities and book in advance.

I'm going to include numerous photos because words aren't descriptive enough. We were pleasantly surprised by how relaxing and homey The Waves has become. You will see that the bad reviews stop when the new owner takes over, and it is now a very classy place.

Some thoughts: if you don't like the sound of never ending waves pounding against the rock...stay somewhere else. If you truly love the surf and watching it hit against rocks...this is your place.

The grotto pool is made by a cut out in the rock. Seawater surges in and occasionally brings in pretty little fish...charming and very different from the usual chlorinated resort pools. There is a little sandy patio to read and relax.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, plates, bowls and glasses. A microwave, coffee maker, electric stove with four burners and a refrigerator --- you can cook anything! FYI There was a thoughtful basket of pretzels and cookies upon our arrival. But bring your own coffee set up, etc. pretend you are renting an apt....bring the food etc you want.

The mattresses were very new and comfortable with nice sheets and coverlet.

There were things one could fuss about --it would have been nice to have screens for the lovely porch doors. However, the owner has obviously done a lot of work and we appreciated her efforts.

Ironically the restaurant below, next to the grotto, is so good you won't want to cook in your room. See photos!

She gets booked up...make reservations early, we had to make ours on Expedia. You will like this small hotel property. But cautionary thought: don't go if you need golf, chlorine, noisy bands and a huge resort. We saw a lovely woman reading by the grotto early each morning. Saw a couple holding hands watching the sunset. And dolphins right outside our porch...
