I had the pleasure of spending the weekend at Arawak due to diving business and had never heard of this hotel so it was such a pleasant surprise of not only seeing how nice everyone was, fantastic room, quiet and serene location! The room was on the second floor with a great view, immaculately clean, and very cozy and warm....

My husband and I had an extended stay while attending to boat repairs at Salt River Marina. We also had to bring in work crew so there were three or four of us for a month or so. Quiet and clean, nice plunge pool and attractive lobby. But the greatest thing about the stay was the couple running it, Lionel...

Great place to stay! The rooms are very clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and it is in a great location (short distance from downtown, very close to the beach!).

I went down to St. Croix as a class trip over spring break and stayed with Jennifer and Lionel for a week. The place was extremely neat and the food was absolutely wonderful.

We always enjoy it when university students visit on class trips. We enjoy them and learn so much from them - viewpoints that are different to ours, seeing our island through their eyes, etc. It is as much an education for us as we hope it is for them. We also try to ensure that our Inn is a place...
