My husband and I just returned from a relaxing winter week at HOTC. Having read the reviews, we were prepared for a lovely quiet location at an "old time" Caribbean resort. This is exactly what we found! It is not glitzy, or busy with entertainment. It is owned and operated by the time share owners, but there are many rooms that are rented as hotel rooms. Our room and balcony overlooked a series of decorative pools which interconnected with rock walls and little waterfalls running down the hillside. The view also included the immaculate swimming pool and the beach and bar/restaurant., as well as sailboats in the harbor and the town of Christiansted across the water. On Tuesday nights the restaurant serves a delicious barbeque on the edge of the beach, and includes steel band music and Caribbean entertainment. The 2 minute ride across the water on the little ferry run by the hotel was a pleasant and fast way to reach the town and boardwalk restaurants running along the waterfront. Our very clean room included a newly refurbished bathroom, small kitchen area with sink, under the counter fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffeemaker......all we needed for breakfast and lunch. The bed was comfortable with a new mattress. Sitting on our balcony, with coffee in the morning and a rum drink in the evening as the sun went down over the hills in the distance was delightful, and I hope the negative reviews won't prevent people from enjoying this wonderful place in a unique location!
