I have been coming here for years,it's a gorgeous hotel on the beach, they don't serve breakfast and tripsadvisor is refusing to change how they have it listed. The owners are amazing, you won't be disappointed in this location.

WE was very upset to find out they did not have any cable TV due to Hurricane Marie 9 months ago. That is DEFINITELY something that they should disclosed to us before we finalized our reservation. I understand THEY are on island time and some things aren't a big deal to them but to us who are paying money - TV is a basic! Also why aren't they pushing to get this fixed? This is a business that generates revenue for the island - should be a priority I would say. Also, I sometimes feel like the front desk doesn't respond quick enough to emails/phone calls...AGAIN with the island time. Not cool to take 2-3 days to respond to an email. Other than that the place was nice and clean with your basic necessities. The kitchen was definitely a plus for families on a budget. Nice bbq area. A lot of older folks stay here (60+)

Room tip: if you're a late sleeper better ask them to put you in a room that is not near any construction that may be going on at 8am

The entire island is still being rewired for cable TV, so it really doesn't matter where you stay, without wires, there has been no TV and 99.9% of our guests have been understanding and have not cared. After the storm, we waited patiently for cell phone service, water, internet, and electricity to be restored, and eventually they all were restored in due time. Unfortunately, we are still waiting on cable TV. As for discussing this with you, you booked on a third party site, which we have no control over, so we had no communication with you. If you had asked us about TV, we would have been honest with you. As for response to emails, they are answered by the owner (not the front desk) and like everyone else, the owners have busy schedules, illness, family issues, vacations, etc., so our apologies that we have upset you in all of these ways.

This is our 10th trip to St Croix in 5 years and we stay at the Cottages exclusively. For the price they can't be beat and Paul, the owner, treats us like family. Not to mention it is directly on one of the best beaches in the world. West end of the island, flat seas and an amazing sunset everynight.

If you’re looking for a quiet get away and love the ocean, this is a super spot. My wife and I have been here twice (once in Coconut Cottage and one in Compass Rose) and we just made reservations to come back in 2019. The ocean has good snorkeling right off the beach, which is 2 miles long and almost no people. When I say “right off the beach,” I mean 20 feet from the sand.
