It was our first trip to St. Croix and what a disappointment it was. It's such an amazingly beautiful place but the people are amongst the most rude I've seen and I've traveled the world. Unfortunately this did not stop at the hotel. From the time we checked in till check out the staff at this hotel was simply disgusting to us. The staff at the restaurant acted like we were inconveniencing them. "How dare us come here and spend our money and help the economy" seemed to be the attitude at this place. Our room was ok. At least the a/c worked. The day we checked out (check out is at 11) we decided to get some last minute rays by the beach (which is beautiful) we got to our room at 10:55 only to be yelled at by the housekeeper, literally yelled at, telling us check out was in 5 minutes. I was appalled we were out of the room by 11:10 this was incredible. I will say all the ferry captains were helpful nice and full of information. The lady at the guest shop was rude beyond belief. All in all this hotel is a great location on a beautiful beach but the treatment we received will unfortunately keep us from ever visiting this island again which is sad because after the refinery closed tourism is the main source of income.
