My friend and I were very pleased with our choice of Tamarind Reef for our stay in St. Croix. We had a lovely view of the Caribbean and Green Cay and Buck Island from our balcony and enjoyed the low-key atmosphere. We alternated between relaxing and reading on the beach and snorkeling in the reef near the shore and day or half-day outings: Buck Island by trimaran for more snorkeling, historic sites and shopping in Christiansted, and a day trip around the island. Except when on outings we ate all our meals at the Deep End Bar and Restaurant on the premises. Everything was delicious, and there was a good variety. Prices were reasonable. Service was a bit slow, but we didn't mind. We did not rent a car, but this was fine with us. The Buck Island trip left from Green Cay Marina just adjacent to the hotel, and we were picked up by Sweeney's Safari Tours for the all day trip. So we only spent cab fare one day to go to Christiansted and back for the sightseeing and shopping and to and from the airport. (I had no desire to drive on the left in a car equipped for driving on the right.) All in all it was just what we wanted for a relaxing winter get-away.
