This resort may be great for those staying on resort. However we merely wished to visit the beach to consider booking in the future We paid $20 resort entrance fee only to be told by 3 separate employees that we should strongly consider walking to honeymoon beach. For $20 there are no shower facilities for non hotel guests. (hmmm wonder why I paid $20 to go there). To top off an unimpressive afternoon at the resort, one of our party, a a clearly sick, bald woman undergoing chemo was told she could not use her SPF shell . Although she too was encouraged to walk the 1/4 mile to honeymoon beach. Having checked the resort out for the day not one of our party of 8 will consider booking our next vacation there.
I wanted to respond to your comment. Since your last visit, an old structure that had been out of use for 30 years has been renovated into a very nice Watersports Facility. Now, there is always a very kind and caring attendant at the Hut who will care for you and your guests and make accommodations necessary to make all of you comfortable.
If you were to have purchased a home made Gelato ice cream, coffee or a panini at the new Café - Canella's, at Caneel Bay's Gift Shop, bar, restaurant or if you were to sign up for one of the exciting adventure kayak, hike & snorkel tours that we now offer at our Honeymoon Beach location, your $20 parking fee is waived.
We now offer flush toilets and a foot shower. We have a gift shop that offers hats, t-shirts, drinks, snacks, sunglasses, sunscreen and a wide variety of appropriate items that you may need at a beach. We also rent beach chairs and beach lounge chairs, thick floating mattresses, kayaks, standup paddleboards, snorkel gear with life jackets and lockers with locks. You can choose to relax in one of many hammocks that are scattered under coconut trees. We have picnic tables with umbrellas and the panini café from Caneel Bay Resort will deliver sandwiches if you order them when you arrive.
Virgin Islands Ecotours offers a Discounted Day Pass for $49 which allows you to use all of the rental equipment all day. You can reserve your day pass in advance online with Virgin Islands Ecotours so that you will not be disappointed.
We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you and your family back to experience our beautiful beach and promise to do our best to take care of you.
