“Amazing Customer Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for a week during our honeymoon. This place made it one of the most relaxing and beautiful weeks of our lives. Vedan, the manager, was incredibly friendly and thoughtful. Upon finding out that it was our honeymoon, he sent us a special food platter accompanied with a handwritten note of congratulations. Our room was beautiful, we loved having the screened in porch looking out at the beach and ocean. Every morning we ate breakfast there watching the hummingbirds flit around. There were Mocko Jumbie dancers that were fantastic fun as lots of people came out to see them and it was quite a party on Friday night. The staff at the resort really made our trip extra special from Vedan, the manager, to the cleaners, to the barkeep, Jamie. We can't recommend this place enough and hope to return very soon!

Room Tip: Definitely go for a room that overlooks the beach, it is worth the extra cost. You might have a bett...

Hello and thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on your stay with us last April. We love hearing such nice compliments about our team. They absolutely enjoy going above and beyond to make our guests stay memorable. Glad to hear you enjoyed the Friday night party...as many times as I've seen the Mocko Jumbies perform, I still get such a kick out them and love how well they get our guests involved.
I hope we can count on you to visit again!

This hotel was very quiet and beautiful. I would definitely recommend it for a couple looking for a relaxing honeymoon spot. Every room is spacious and feels sort of like you're in a tree house! The rooms also have a fenced in porch that is a nice feature. It seems to be an older facility but is well maintained and has nicely updated features. The GM greeted us upon arrival, talked to us about the resort and made suggestions while answering any questions that we had. Beach and pool are great, the ocean isn't great for swimming right at the resort though. The water is choppy and there are rocks/reef right there. The food and drinks were great (a little high on the prices), and the staff was very friendly. Tuesday is movie night out by the pool which was fun!

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!
