Great resort, loved everything but the restaurantPosted Mar 4, 2014
Pros: Everything but the dining. it is a great Caribbean island getaway.
Cons: The food quality at the restaurant; the bar restaurant was Ok, the site for breakfast and friday nite jump up was unfriendly, and average quality
Location: We loved Eat and Rowdy Joes restaurants off site but nearby. the diving and snorkeling, swimming, hiking right on site were great. Renting a car allow
our only complaint was the restaurant, the food very expensive, but less than average quality. WE were forced to go off site for good quality food with pleasant dining atmosphere along with fun welcome feeling. The resort itself was pictureesgue, wonderful location, top quality accommodations, friendly helpful staff everywhere except dining room again. The Sweet Bottom dive center dive center on site was very professional and helpful, friendly, fun, and acommodating. Our room unit was a dream, looking out on pool, ocean with breath taking views. It was very private, safe, relaxing, and not crowded at all, perfect vacation we felt. It is best to have a car rental at this site to along taking in the offerings of the whole island as well as other restaurants. Conceriege services were quite helpful

Room on the beachPosted Feb 24, 2014
Pros: Privacy and calm, even with "full house"
Cons: Some advance warning about access to second floor rooms by stairs only. Access can be tricky.
Location: Preferred to stay in house, but tempting visits were there
Paid a bit extra for a beach front room, well worth it. Calm and private even though hotel was highly booked. Good restaurant. Did not do it, but looked like a great base for activities out-of resort. Were more interested in unwinding after bad year for the family. Staff most cooperative. Great break from Maine winter, although it takes a very full day to get there from here.

Carambola is absolutely amazing!Posted Feb 16, 2014
Everything about Carambola was incredible! I planned a week stay for my boyfriend's birthday and Valentine's Day. Needless to say, we were both so depressed when we had to leave. We relaxed on the amazing private beach, we hiked to the tide pools (quite the journey but oh so worth it!), met some fabulous people, one of which worked at the hotel. He was so unbelievably nice that he took us all around St. Croix and showed us both Christiansted and Fredricksted. Due to all the cars being rented out (which I highly recommend doing) he offered to take us around. I wouldn't have changed it for the world because we got to see the entire island! I seriously do not have a negative thing to say about Carambola! The staff was so accommodating and nice you really felt special. The food and drinks were quite pricy but I wouldn't expect anything less for a resort like this. If you can stop at a local market and get snacks and alcohol (which is very inexpensive), this makes it a little easier if you aren't trying to spend so much eating at the restaurants. Local food was also incredible, I highly recommend Harvey's in Christiansted if you aren't a picky eater. My boyfriend loves trying new things and eating odd foods (me, I am a little more reserved in that matter) but I absolutely loved it! And the people there, some of the nicest I've ever met. Shout out to Richie! Also shout out to David at Carambola, thank you from the bottom of Mark and my heart, you are the best!!! Carambola, amazing!

Incredible resort on Davis Bay!Posted Jan 20, 2014
Pros: Everything. The setting is incredible.
Cons: The restaurant prices are really high.
The Carambola Resort and Spa was amazing, and truly beautiful. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the outdoor, enclosed porches are perfect. The resort also has a great freshwater pool, and pretty good restaurant food. The beach is nice, and the swimming is decent (a little wavy at this particular beach). Cane Bay (with great food and fun snorkeling) is a quick drive away. The staff were really friendly, but the views are what really makes this resort special. It was built right into the rainforest, so green mountains/hills are all around you. I would definitely go back to the Carambola if I visit St. Croix again!

Nice, spacious roomPosted Dec 23, 2013
Pros: It was away from the everyday bustle of life. Totally secluded
Cons: The menu could use a few more additions
Location: It was secluded, which is what we were looking for.
We totally enjoyed our stay. The room was much bigger and nicer than expected. It was fully furnished with refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster and cooking utensils.

The stay was wonderfulPosted Dec 4, 2013
Pros: All the staff
Cons: The roads coming to and from the resort
Just what we needed. The 25 dollar credit per day was wonderful. We will be back

Carambola Resort RelaxPosted Nov 21, 2013
Pros: It is everything they say it is with some added pleasant surprises.
Location: If you want to see the rest of St. Croix be sure to rent a car.
If you want a resort to relax and have no worries, this is the place. As far as my wife and I are concerned we had one of the best vacations in a long time. The People (staff and locals) are extremely friendly and always with a smile.

This resort exceeded our expectations!Posted Nov 5, 2013
Pros: Absolutely everything...we miss the extra cozy bed, comforter and pillows that were cleaned daily.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: There is really no need to leave this resort. The Domiano Club is something to Check out as well as the sunset at Rainbow beach.
The resort was absolutely beautiful with one of the best beaches on island, especially if you enjoy snorkeling! There was ample staff and everyone was always offering to help with even the littlest things. The rooms were cleaned top to bottom on a daily basis as if you had just checked in. The pool area was always clean and quiet relaxing! The food at the restaruant was some of the best on island and the wait/bar staff were very attentive. Can't wait to return there and see all the friends we met!
