We stayed for a few days at Pelican Cove Condos in early February. It is a very nice upscale condo complex. We travelled around to most of the other parts of the island and scouted for future stays so we have a good idea about the other choices. The best aspects about Pelican Cove are the following:
**It is very convenient to most everything as it is mid island- the furthest destination in 30 minutes away in either direction. Groceries, great restaurants, shopping are all with a 5-10 minute drive.
**There are two great restaurants and a bar within a five minute walk at the adjacent Hibiscus and Palms @ Pelican Cove resorts.
**The grounds are among the nicest we saw with extensive, well-maintained tropical foliage and a palm- fringed beach.
**The pool is very large and nicely landscaped.
**The pool and beach were never crowded.
**The units we saw were well kept and roomy. All have a view of the Caribbean from the patio.
**The neighborhood nearby was moderate to middle income - note that a number of condos complexes a little closer to Christiansted are across from public housing projects which some might not be comfotable with.
All in all, it was a very nice place if you are looking for a convenient, quiet oceanfront experience without the activities and feel of a hotel.
Note the the beach directly in front of the complex is very nice sand- perfect for strolling or sunning; however as with most beaches on the north shore, the water access is limited due to coral in the water. However, a short walk on the beach - 3-4 minutes- takes you over to the Palms and there is a lovely sandy bottom beach access into the water for swimming and snorkling.
St. Croix is wonderful- friendly people, polite drivers (whcih helps since they drive on the left), lots of history, varied topograghy from mountain rainforest to arid rolling hills. We felt very comfortable driving around just about anywhere.
We recommend both the island and Pelican Cove heartily!
