I first came to Caneel in the 1970s, a dozen times since 2017 visit, and the nature is always vibrant, fresh, delivers a big wow! The clarity, warm water and sounds of ocean are amazing here. My favorites are Turtle Bay Beach, Caneel Beach, and the walk from Turtle Bay to Caneel beach, day or night, breakfast or dinner. Lunch...

This was perhaps my 40th trip to St. John and my first to stay at Caneel Bay (although we had both used the beaches and eaten there before). Yes, it's a lovely location and a storied history. But I was incredibly underwhelmed. For something pricey even by St. John standards, the room was relatively small and old, we had several...

My wife and I just returned from 5 days at Caneel Bay. This was our fourth stay at the resort. The place never disappoints. We stayed on Scott Beach and love the updated rooms. Walking out of your bedroom and onto a beautiful beach is awesome. The grounds are beautiful.... large variety of trees, flowers and of course donkeys, deer...

I have long wanted to go to Caneel Bay Resort. I have read about it for years and seen it from afar on a previous day trip to St. John. I decided to return with my wife to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and loved every minute of it. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. The reservation...

My husband and I love to travel and rarely repeat visits to the same place. We stayed at Caneel Bay in April 2017 and are already planning our return trip in the first half of 2018. It’s true that the resort may not meet everyone’s definition of luxury. If you’re accustomed to the aesthetically perfect, sterile environment of a 5-star...

I had been hearing good things about Caneel bay for many years, but comments and reviews about the dated rooms always kept me at bay. Finally I read about the rooms at Scott Beach being recently refurbished and I decided to visit. I'm very sorry it took me so long. I am a certified diver and have been lucky to...

Loved the resort. Everything is well maintained. Zozo's is a gem. I highly recommend eating there. The resort is quite spendy, but everything was well worth the cost. On a side note, estate house was just OK.

I recently returned from a week long stay at Caneel Bay, and wow, what an incredible place. I traveled solo to celebrate my 50th birthday and have some me time. I went based on recommendations from a few friends and they did not steer me wrong. The standard of service at Caneel Bay is top notch. I never had a...

Caneel Bay is hands-down my favorite destination in the Caribbean. As an avid island hopper for many years, I always come back to this Resort. I have not found it's equal in the US Virgin Islands. Built on an old sugar Plantation, this sprawling Resort offers private beaches, three restaurants, one of which is tops on the island, and Oceanside...

Incredible beaches; you feel like you have them all to yourself; delicious sushi. I had a seaweed salad relaxing on a comfortable padded, chaise lounge. incredible tennis facilities (9 courts). Some waters so calm they have pool floaties to take out and lie on. I saw some reviews where people complained that the rooms are a little damp and outdated,...
