Laid back cottage stylePosted Apr 16, 2013
Pros: This hotel was very laid back and quaint cottage style rooms. Very relaxing stay.
Cons: The pool did not look clean or inviting.
Location: Located on Eastern side of island near Christianstead. There are no side walks so you have to take a cab into town or rent a car.
We enjoyed the Caribbean island feel of this laid back quaint hotel. The service was very helpful. The on-site restaurant and some of the facilities could use some updating. The food was very good. The pool needed attention. The hotel was homey.

We had a great time.Posted Apr 7, 2013
Pros: The view was amazing, the staff was great.
Cons: The beach was not very nice.
Location: Its a little off the beaten path, but there is nowhere you cannot drive in 20 minutes. The whole island is only 25 miles long.
My wife and I stayed at Chenay Bay the week after Easter 2013. I'll start with the positive. The pictures were really accurate, and we had a wonderful ocean view the second we stepped out of our room. The room was clean, and the AC was able to keep the room very comfortable. The staff was helpful and the bartenders had done nearly every touristy thing on the island and could make recommendations. Now the bad. The beach here is not that nice. There is a lot of sea grass washed up on the sand, and the water is only about 2 feet deep and covered in sea grass for about 40 feet out, so its not fun swimming and splashing around. I had read a lot of things saying that you could get a cheap cab to anywhere and there was no reason for a car rental. This could not be further from the truth. Cabs are very expensive and there is no meter so its just what the cabbie feels like charging. You really need a car to go into town and go to some of the nicer beaches. The food at the hotel is really just bar food (very unhealthy), although good, you will need to go into town for dinners or groceries. There are no cheap shuttles or taxis for that. I read a couple of reviews about bugs called no see-ums. These are like sand lice and are everywhere on the island and bite at night. Most places provide bug spray and I was never bitten, but these are not bed bugs.

The weather was great! The hotel was quiet and peaceful, but in need of maintenance.

Beach HousePosted Mar 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Thank to Mother Nature, the area is absolutely gorgeous, however the hotel seems not to be taken care in a while. The landscaping is sadly dry and the beach area is not organized in the morning as other hotels do. The "water sports" cabana was closed all the time and apprently worked as a pantry for the bar area.The towels are old and thin like paper and the room is not that clean or cozy. Be prepared to stay at a "beach house" and you will enjoy. On the other hand, the staff is extremelly friendly.and helpfull.

Maintenance neededPosted Mar 20, 2013
Pros: Right on the bay - cant walk from room directly to pool or beach. Restaurant staff very good!
Cons: Cleanliness/deferred maintenance of buildings.
Resort is being sold and most of the complex is not in good shape (much deferred maintenance). Not sure that the current maintenance staff is really equipped to handle the repairs that are needed. It is nice because the staff at the hotel bar are generally good and very customer oriented. Food items were good. It is close to many good restaurants and shops in/near Christensted.

Potential to be betterPosted Mar 18, 2013
Pros: Location and the Cottage theme
Cons: is run down
Location: On the beach and away from other resorts
Water damage on walls, hole in medicine cabinet, matteress in poor condition, and unable to open main window. We were with 3 other couples that had nicer rooms that received surveys from the hotel at check out, but we did not receive one. The beach needs to be groomed

Good staff and beach for swimming or snorkelingPosted Mar 7, 2013
Pros: proximity to the sea
Location: About 4 miles east of Christensted on the north shore of St Croix Island, USVI
The resort was conveniently located from the capital and largest town in St Croix. Staff were courteous, pleasant and helpful with us even though the resort is undergoing changes in management and ownership. Everything worked in our lodge, with very hot water; however, many of the other guests were having problems with water lines, toilets, appliances, etc. The resort has a nice beach and snorkeling to an active reef was only 50-100 meters from shore. It was surprising quiet at night and in the early morning, allowing for good sleeping conditions.

In need of renovationPosted Feb 26, 2013
This place would be fantastic with some renovations and better food selections at the restaurant. The beach and view is fantastic. Great for lounging and watching the sunset.

The Owners Have Given UpPosted Feb 18, 2013
Pros: The location on the bay
Cons: Dirty room condition
Location: Very pretty bay 10 minutes away from Christiansted. Easy to get to nearby restaurants.
It appears as though the owners have given up on this property, which is a shame given its beautiful location. There were never enough of the worn, ratty lounge chairs to accommodate the guests on the beach, even though the resort was not full. My room, a small cottage, was well located and quaint, but hadn't had a deep cleaning for many years. The sole housekeeping service was making the bed, and even that was neglected on one day of my stay. The staff appeared to be as depressed as the physical property, with the only smiles I encountered coming from the bartending staff. This resort has great potential if only someone would take an active interest in developing it.
