We have been going to Cottages By The Sea for eight years now. We find that this very friendly, relaxing and just the place where you can forget about everything. The beach is right outside your door. If you like cooking outside they have two large gas grills. If you like you can bike to town on their free bicycles. If you like eating out its right next door.The staff is just great. Is my kinda paradise.

Date of stay: February 2017

This was our 3rd trip to the island and we have stayed at the Cottages every time - and won't ever stay anywhere else. It is family owned - quiet - beautiful property - and best staff ever. Once you step on to the property, you feel welcome and that they truly value their guests. Paul is incredible in how much pride he takes in the property and how important it is to him that the guests a great experience staying there. Lyndi and Nikki in the office and Carmen in housekeeping all provide incredible service. There are many others that work behind the scenes or are housekeepers we have never had that I know work very hard - especially this last year since Hurricane Maria. Don't search anymore for a place to stay on St.Croix. Just go to their website and book your stay! You won't regret it! We already have trip #4 booked!

Room tip: The 'beach side' cottages are only about 10 steps farther from the water than the 'beach front' cottages. All are great!

Small hotel that has been in Fsted for decades. Every room is a bit different, very relaxed atmosphere, even the check in and check out is relaxed. Plus if you stay a certain number of days a bottle of rum and two cokes are on the house, to get you started. House keeping not every day, but you can ask.

Room tip: Check the web site, there is a description of every room.

We had an incredible stay here. The room was perfect, right on the beach, decorated tastefully with a nice shower. We would stay and recommend Sylvia's room to any couple looking for a room without a kitchen. The hotel staff are very professional and friendly.
The hotel offers all kinds of amenities but one i want to mention are the bicycles. They have a rack of nice beach cruisers you can ride into Fredicksted for breakfast or lunch and some shopping. We were very happy staying oaths side of the island.
Amazing place. We will return soon.

Room tip: Sylvia's room is our favorite

Thank you for mentioning our brand new bikes in this review and for your awesome 5 stars rating. Sylvia is our smallest waterfront room, but cozy and with a great view, so we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Please visit with us again one day soon.
