“PERFECT PLACE TO STAY!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

My girlfriends and I traveled to St. Croix in November of 2013 during which time we stayed at two hotels on island. The first hotel was cute, priced the same as Arawak but didn't pass the test. Arawak is 5-star service, 5-star accommodations, 5-star everything!! The rooms are super clean and the owners, Jennifer and Lionel made this experience one that we can't wait to repeat every year to come!!! They served us breakfast every morning with fresh fruit and usually one could mention what was preferred for the morning grub and either Jennifer or Lionel would be sure to make it for you, always with a smile and laughter. I HIGHLY recommend Arawak to anyone interested in the perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: Any room on the top floor has a perfect view of the Caribbean sea.

Clean, wonderful service, great home cooked breakfasts. I would not hesitate to stay here again. The fridge in the room and free wi fi were much appreciated! The pool is quite peaceful and the views are stunning.

I have been traveling to St. Croix for years and stay at the same place all the time. When the department of tourism was running a promotion, I decided to try a different place to stay. So I called Arawak to get some info on there place and spoke with Jennifer. After a 10 minute conversation with Jennifer, I didn't hesitate to book my stay. The place was incredibly clean and the staff were very polite. As for Jennifer, she was awesome! Very accommodating and her breakfast every morning were great! So after my 25th visit to the Island I would highly recommend the Arawak as one the best places to stay on the island and for the money!

Mama Jennifer and Lionel are like family. The service was superb and the property is beautiful.
A different breakfast every morning and not the typical continental type. The views are breathtaking! The art decor around the property is definitely professional, by local talent and gallery worthy. I have to tell all my friends and family and I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean, however, reserve as early as possible.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Arawak Bay. The owners were more than pleasant and ensured that our stay was comfortable. They went over and beyond ensuring that our stay was pleasant and informing us about the island. Unfortunately we only stayed one night because we were meeting up with family but I would have enjoyed staying there the whole week. The owners cooked a breakfast for us better than Grandmas! :) I talked about the stay at Arawak all the way back home and my husband insisted I make a comment on tripadvisor telling others. It is a great place to stay and surely worth your money. We will definitely be returning guests to this establishment.

Comfortable room and amazing breakfast. Jennifer and Lionel are pleasant, helpful and a joy to be around. We just spent a week with them and I can't imagine staying anywhere else if we return to St. Croix. Lionel is in the process of building a meeting room next to the Inn which will be a help to larger groups that stay there. It is a quiet spot very close to the Salt River Bay Marina, where diving and kayak tours can be arranged. A small refrigerator in the room was helpful.

I can't begin to tell you how nice Arawak Bay is. We needed a one night stay as our flight back to the mainland was not until Sunday and we had to be out of the vacation rental on Saturday. Arawak Bay was recommended and are we ever glad. Jennifer was wonderful. Even though we would be leaving very early (flight was 8:30AM and we had to be at the airport by 6:30), and would be gone for the regular breakfast hours, she said we needed to eat before we left, especially since we had small children. Breakfast would be simple - waffles, coffee and juice. It was terrific. Our only regret was that we had to leave so early - we can only dream what the normal breakfast would be! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The view was awesome. The pool was refreshing and there was even an "honor bar". Thank you Jennifer!
