On premise parking was very convenient. Front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was across the ice machine and we could hear the ice pour every time it was used. Maids singing and holding conversations at 7am every morning! It was LOUD! No toiletries, shampoo dispenser empty - only soap and lotion.

Pros: The hotel was conveniently located downtown, to the boardwalk area and Seaplane terminal. We felt very comfortable walking around after sundown.
Cons: I would recommend a elevator. Even though staff assisted with the luggage upon arrival, due to early morning checkout we had to carry the luggage down
Location: A short walk to the boardwalk which offered several dining venues, local bars with evening music and shopping.
Conveniently located downtown Christiansted along the waterfront. Our room was updated, very spacious, clean and comfortable overlooking the harbor. We would recommend a harbor view room.... definitely worth the few extra dollars. Free Wi-Fi was also available. Free off street parking behind an enclosed fence. There was a nice pool area. A comfortable outside sitting area adjacent to the pool provided a quiet area to relax overlooking amazing sunsets with a view of Buck Island. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They assisted with taking the luggage to our room on the second floor(the hotel does not have elevators). We would definitely stay at Hotel Caravelle on our next visit to St. Croix

My recent travel to St. Croix was for business purposes. This is my 2nd time on this hotel. The hotel was recently remodeled and is located right next to all the restaurants, bars and stores in the boardwalk which is great. The only problem that I encounter was, that the reservation for the room was done and pre-paid through Expedia, but when I arrived to the hotel; the reservation clerk asked me for the room deposit money ( that wasn't mention, charge or included during my reservation procedure with Expedia) I mention the clerk, the reason behind having a pre-paid reservation prior to arrival is because I didn't travel with the company business credit card, and that I didn't have enough money to leave for the room deposit. Thank God they kept my previous credit card reservation records that was done directly with the hotel, because if it wasn't like that - they didn't want me to remain in the room.

Pros: Clean rooms, newly renovated and very nice staff.
Cons: Noise level from adjoining room and ice maker outside.
Location: Right in Christiansted by the Seaplanes and harbor and near lots of cute shops and restaurants.
We had a great stay at this hotel. We arrived on a Seaplane and walked right down the pier to the hotel where we were greeted with delight. Our room was spic and span and super cute with a nice ocean view. Will definitely stay here again!
