Visited the resort in March 2017 and absolutely enjoyed the experience. We had heard about the resort through a couple we know that has been going to Caneel for years and we finally decided to experience it ourselves. From the beautiful beaches (Turtle Beach is my favorite) to the dining (amazing sushi & delicious fine dining at the Turtle Bay...

Beautiful rooms, lovely beaches, clear water, great diving sites and awesome food, a truly relaxing vacation. CB is at the top of our list for a return visit. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The rooms evoked a sense that we were on a Pacific Island. Lots of bamboo furniture and comfy beds. Very clear water, beautiful scuba diving trips....

I cannot believe I booked this vacation for 3 nights. We needed (at minimum) 4-5 nights. Where we hung out and ate: We had amazing sushi at Umami. We were told to make a rez but we just walked in at 8-9ish and were fine. We also ate at Extra Virgin Bistro and chose a fantastic bottle of wine and...

My wife and I just returned from our first stay at Caneel. We booked last minute and read many reviews on this forum before booking. I'd say most of the reviews here are right on. The beaches and grounds are truly spectacular. The buildings blend into the landscape, such that you see the beaches, turquoise water, rolling lawns and hillsides...

If you need to be entertained beyond who you are traveling with...fancy rooms...tv in rooms...hopping bar scene Caneel is not for you. If you want a quiet place to chill and enjoy the beach and water, then Caneel is the spot. It's very quiet...the beaches and water are the best. Food options are good...zozos is excellent and you need to...

We were spending the day on the water and stopped here to enjoy the beach and have lunch. What a great decision. The bay is spectacular and the view from the second story terrace was just a special treat. The staff was so fun and extra attentive from the bar, the beach and the dock!!! The food was delicious and...

Caneel Bay Resort on St. John, USVI is a lovely place. We stayed for 5 nights this past winter and greatly enjoyed our visit. The resort is located in and adjacent to a US National Park so it is quite pristine, yet only a 5 minute taxi ride to Cruz Bay, the main town on St. John. We were brought...

I am a regular traveler to the Caribbean, Mexican and the US area. Being so, I decided to go, for the first time, to the British Islands area. As a start, I decided to stay in St. Thomas, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, since I understood this area would be a more convenient one, should I decide to use the...

My wife and I have been enjoying the beauty and charm of Caneel Bay for over 15 years. While the warm friendly staff is the same, the rooms are being upgraded! We stay in a beach front room that was completely renovated last summer. Part of our family joined us for one week - the kids just love the water,...
