This was my wife and I 4th trip to St. Croix, and out 3rd stay at Villa Margarita. John and Adele were once again great hosts. The accommodations were wonderful as usual. You will not find a better deal anywhere on the island. John is an excellent carpenter and has finished a "Tiki Bar" next to the pool. Happy hours are always fun and this time John brought out a large screen TV for the Ravens game. Adele is a great bartender and always has a full line of Cruzan Rum to make whatever you want. The pool and decking have all been replaced since we were there last and it looks magnificent.
If you are not familiar with St Croix, Villa Margarita is on the north shore by the salt river. It is secluded enough that you can get away from crowds and is only a 10 minute drive to Christiansted and the boardwalk/shopping/restaurants. There are a several restaurants up by Cane Bay but the best is Eat @ Cane Bay. Friday night 2 for 1 wine. Snorkeling and Snuba are also great at Cane Bay.
As I said, John and Adele are wonderful hosts. They will party with you or give you the privacy and seclusion you want. All the suites come with bed, private bathroom and kitchenette. Adele knows all the best places to eat and who runs specials or music each night. They celebrated my wife's birthday with us and made our stay a pleasure once again. Unless your looking for a $400 a night resort and somebody to leave a mint on your pillow each night, Villa Margarita is the best bang for the buck on the island. It is a couples place, not a kids place. We will be back in 2013.
