My husband and I stayed at the Carambola resort from 12/17-12/22/11 and it was a fantastic experience. We arrived late in the afternoon--- don't use directions given to you by the airport guard gate-- they are so wrong! Luckily, my husband's phone was working so we could use his GPS. Check-in was a breeze, and a very nice young man took us and our luggage to our room in a golf cart. Our room was one of the renovated ones- an ocean view studio. Building 2. 2nd floor. Absolutely breathtaking views and the room was beautiful. I highly recommend getting a second floor room-- they have the wooden beamed ceilings and it's just gorgeous. The room included a couch, 2 flat screen tv's, a fridge, microwave, toaster, and of course the awesome screened in porch.
The food at the resort is standard-- nothing to get too excited over, but good. We went to the breakfast buffet once and decided to buy bagels and muffins at the store for the rest of our stay. The drinks from the bar, however, are fantastic. I highly recommend a Bushwhacker-- a milkshake for adults! The bartenders were all so friendly and didn't mind us picking their brains about things to do on the island. The beach at the resort is beautiful, too--- with the lush mountains in the background and waves crashing...I miss it already. Some people say the resort is too far away from everything but the seclusion makes it even more perfect, in my opinion. Plus, it's an easy drive to either Christiansted or Frederiksted. (Easy once you get used to driving on the left and all the pot holes in the road)! I would go back to this resort in an instant and if I do go back- I won't stay anywhere else.
