“Secluded location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014 via mobile

Renaissance is a nice hotel but it is very secluded and far from everything. We did not rent a car so taxi rides to restaurant were costly. The food on the resort never changes except on Friday for buffet. The hotel service is ok but we were told everything is on island time.

Peaceful, beautiful, and tranquil! Wonderful rooms with full kitchen. We had an ocean front room with a wonderful view of the beach. It is out of the way so I advise to rent a car. We took daily adventure trips - all within 1/2 hour. The service was exceptional, friendly staff, scuba/snorkel shop, great pool, beach, and the restaurant was excellent. We will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean front room

Quiet, tranquil, and a beach that is one of the most peaceful places on earth. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, all very up to date. The pool is large and sparkling clean, with a restaurant that hosts a wonderful buffet. It is a bit out of the way, but that's exactly what I was looking for.

Excellent stay at the Renaissance after spending few days at the Hotel Caravelle in Christiansted. The Renaissance is clean, nice, pleasant, and quiet with the best looking and spacious rooms on that side of the island. My only gripe about the resort is that it is separated from most other attractions and towns -so transportation is a must if you have the desire to see anything outside of the resort.

Room Tip: Not a bad room on the resort.

Hi Toby,
Thanks for your review...you're right we are located on the North shore of the island so it is best to rent a car to explore the island and have the option of going into historic Christiansted for some additional shopping and dining options. Very happy to hear you loved our guest rooms which are really studio suites. I hope you will visit again!

If you are looking for a tranquil place to relax away from the crowds, Carambola Beach Resort is the hotel you want to choose. Spacious, cool rooms offer all amenities to make you stay enjoyable. A big pool area, the beautiful beach and a breath taking landscape easily convince the visitor to spend most of their time outside. Unlike many other hotels, the resort doesn't fill the air with music; instead it invites local musicians to perform during diner time. An on-site scuba-diving school helps you get your certificate in a week. Finally, nothing can top the experience of having your award-winning meals on the big terrasse with view on the beach. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Everything was to my highest satisfaction.

Room Tip: Houses 1 to 6 are the best ones because they are closer to the oceanfront and are not hidden in fore...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay. We really do value our guests feedback.
Happy you found your room cool and well appointed. Sounds like you stayed in a Deluxe Ocean View room. Next time you might consider trying a Deluxe Beachfront room. It's the same room, just closer to the beach, so you walk out your door and you're right on the beach. Either way, we hope you will come back and visit us again!

We visited the Carambola Resort and Spa in St. Croix in July 2014 and it was very beautiful. The staff was attentive and caring. We had a couple of minor issues throughout the week but they were quickly resolved. I would highly recommend renting a car, otherwise it is a bit expensive using the cab service offered through the hotel. Also, if you don't rent a car, your meal options are limited and the food on the island was outstanding! The beach was beautiful and the food was great, although the service was a bit slow, but it was always delicious and affordable, nonetheless. Every staff member was friendlier than the last! Everyone made you feel welcome, from the moment we arrived and offered a rum punch to the hugs we received when we left. A real class act!

Room Tip: Our room was listed as beach front but that was a bit of a stretch. The room was find though so that...

Thank you to the staff and especially,Shantel, Christine, Puablo and Phillipsia for being so helpful and kind to use during our recent 6 wonderful days exploring St. Croix and staying at the resort.
The food and beach was great, comfortable and clean rooms along with such a friendly staff made family memories for the four of us that we will cherish.
We will come back and explore more of St. Croix and absolutely stay at the Renaissance Carambola!
