The Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort is a beautiful resort. The rooms are gorgeous with comfortable beds, a large bathroom with walk in closet, ceiling fans throughout that eliminate the need for air conditioning, and a screened in porch which was a great place to relax with a morning cup of coffee or an evening cup of tea.
The hotel staff was very friendly. When we checked in, they upgraded us to an ocean front room because we were marriott rewards members and they served us a glass of rum punch.
The hotel is a bit secluded and its a long windy road to Christiansted so if you plan to stay here understand that you will most likely eat all of your meals on the hotel grounds because the roads are not well lit in the evening. The good news is the food is good at all of the hotel's restaurants. One thing I wish I knew about this hotel before checking in was that it has a fully stocked kitchen with a refrigerator, an electric stove, and pots and pans. This provides for a way to save money if you are willing to cook during your vacation.
The beach at carambola is pretty but the water is rougher on this side of the island. There were plenty of hammocks and beach chairs to accommodate the guests. There is also scuba diving that you can do on sight right from the beach.
There is also a hike that begins on the hotel grounds to the tide pools. Its worth spending a morning taking this hike. Its not too vigorous for those in good/average shape.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to friends looking for a romantic or relaxing getaway!
