“Going back, loved that place”
Reviewed May 3, 2006

Management was excellent. People are polite. The place is clean and quiet. The entertainment was good. If you want to relax in style, this is the place for you. We just returned, but are making plans for our return trip. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for family and couples as well.

We stayed in the brand new wing of the hotel directly on the beach. Very clean,large rooms. Located at eastern end of St. Croix 15 minutes from town and easily accessible with a car.
The hotel grounds were neat and taken care of. The staff needs to be more attentive to cleaning up the hotel lobby and public areas on a daily or nightly basis.
We stayed for one week and would most certainly go back. Lots to do with water sports and snorkel trips off the beach, along the reef. Also, they have a 5 star PADI dive shop on site with very helpful employees.
The breakfast buffet was expensive and disappointing because they did not keep the food replenished. However, lunch and dinner were exceptional. The prices were what you would find all over the island. Food was fresh and beautifully prepared.
The car rental office is on site if needed and they will bring the car directly to the hotel at no additional charge.
All in all, wonderful value for the money and friendly helpful employees.
Gift shop on site was filled to the rafters with island goodies and terrific prices for items to take home.

We switched to the Divi Carina Bay Resort and Casino after discovering another lodging we had made reservations in did not welcome children (we were traveling with a 15-month old). Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly and my first impression was good, as the resort appeared to well-maintained. We rented a room on the beach, which truly was steps from the beach, which was very nice. The beach itself isn't fantastic, but still enjoyable for us and our child, as the water was calm. The room was nothing fantastic, certainly not luxurious, as described by some guidebooks. The furniture was worn and upon entering there was an overpowering smell of bleach. Over the next three days, we discovered quite a number of mosquitoes coming from our shower area. By the time we left, we were all covered in mosquito bites.

The staff were friendly (except one surly waitress at the restaurant). We had no problems with noise of other guests. Perhaps because it was the end of the tourist season, it was usually quiet.

Overall, a very average place for an above average price. You could do better elsewhere for the same amount of money and probably have better beaches.

This was our second stay at Divi. Wonderful relaxing place providing just the right casual atmosphere. Great people, service and facilities. Great location and beach. Excellent food......Al's served the best fahitas we have eaten...............and the Starlight served excellent gourmet fare. Nightly entertainment was fun in keeping with a family atmosphere. Mr. Henry is engaging and doing a great job at Divi. We'll be back.

My husband & I stayed at the Divi April 2nd-5th. We were supposed to stay thru the 9th, but we switched to the Carambola Resort.(Awesome.) The Divi hotel is located on the south side of the island, so the beach is not clear turquoise waters and breathtaking tropical views. Instead, mostly seagrass and a dry, arid topography. Our rooms bathroom walls hadn't been washed in weeks, the bathtub spout fixure was hanging by a pipe, service at the bar was pretty bad, pool is small, and all in all, the hotel was just not up to par. I was suprised to learn it had only been built in 2000! The hotel site is also far removed from the rest of St. Croix, so you will definately need to rent a car! It just didn't feel like a real vacation at the Divi. We switched to the Carambola on the North side of the island midweek, and that's when I felt my "vacation" began! Well landscaped grounds, tropical setting, beautiful beach, great, spacious villas. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. We came for diving, and Cane Bay Dive Shop has a satellite location at the Divi. Cane Bay Dive Shop is simply one of the best outfits I have ever encountered. While I did not dive the Divi site, Cane Bay will actually come and pick you up to take you to their main shop on the North Side's Davis Bay, which has many outstanding sites, as well as cool wreck diving a short drive away.
Loved St. Croix!!!!! Great Diving & Very Relaxing! Will not return to Divi.

We have just returned from a 3-week vacation at the Divi Carina Bay Beach Resort, St. Croix & can't say enough about the excellent customer service we received from the hotel staff.

We have been traveling throughout the Carribean for 20 years and own a time share with Divi. We have always been pleased with the staff in Aruba, Barbadoes, & St. Maarten, however, we have never received such incredible service before.

My husband has a difficult time walking because of neuropathy and a heart problem that makes him out of breath very quickly. One of the people at the desk noticed the slow pace, and asked me what the problem was. He immediately said that "from now on, please call us & we'll pick him up & drive him back & forth with the shuttle", and they did. Another evening when returning from the Casino, I asked the person driver of the shuttle if he could stop at the hotel so I could purchase a couple of bottles of water. He did & when I returned without the water (I said it was closed), he asked to wait a few moments & quickly came back with the water.

These are just a couple of instances of people going out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I could go on & on because there were many.

The housekeeping staff do a wonderful job & the beach & pool area are great. The food at the restaurants was delicious & well prepared, and what we also liked is the fact that you can get sandwiches, a hamburger, etc. until 11:00 PM

I would highly recommend the Divi Carina Bay Beach Resort as a place to vacation. We plan to return again soon with our daughter & her family.

We also had a very pleasant experience throughout the island with the shop keepers, taxi drivers, and general public.

This was our second trip to Divi Carina Bay...the first time was really good (obviously we went back), and this time was even better!
From our friendly, easy check-in (and the free beach bag-what a nice touch!)to the time we had to leave, we had a great time.
Our rooms were spotless, the housekeeping staff friendly. And, the decor of the room was beautiful! Bright Caribbean colors, but not your typical flower or palm tree prints...modern,fresh and fun designs. Everything was perfectly coordinated and nothing was left out. The art, plants, really cool ice buckets and coffee carafes, they for got nothing! Everywhere you looked was that extra little touch.
The beach and pool were great and the staff friendly and helpful. The food was even better than the last time.I don't know who the people are that are complaining, but EVERYONE I talked to loved the Divi! We had stayed at the Buccaneer several years ago and thought it was living off it's reputation. It wasn't what it claimed to be. We talked to some other people at the Divi who said they had stayed at the Buccaneer before too but would never go back...that it doesn't compare to The Divi in quality of rooms or service.
If you want a beach vacation at a beautiful oceanfront hotel, Divi Carina Bay is the ONLY place to go! We'll be back again next year for sure!
