Caravalle is an older hotel in a beautiful location overlooking the boardwalk and ocean. For a short stay, it does the job.

First time away from home

Would recommend Wed, Dec 31, 2014
My mother, brother, and I came out to St. Croix to settle my brother into UVI. This is a cute hotel situated right on the harbor. Our room was very nice because it overlooked the harbor. My mother and I managed to visit a few restaurants in the area. Staying here was very tranquil and lovely. Would recommend.

Utterly disappointing

Would not recommend Sat, Jun 28, 2014
I've traveled around the world, and have stayed in several hotels. This by far is the worst experience that I have ever encountered. My room had to be changed twice. The first room had no A/C on humid, 98 degree days and there were roaches. The mattresses were lumpy and linens had someone else's hair on them. We had to stay in the room because there was no PM receptionist to transfer us. The next day, they provided us a new room with A/C, but that was as good as it got. The rooms both had molded ceilings and showers, filthy unclean showers, moldy and stained carpeting, roaches and ants, doors that were previously broken into and not fixed, grimy light switches and on, and on. The ONLY great thing about the hotel was that it was right on the boardwalk and the employees were accommodating.

Splendid Views

Would recommend Fri, Jan 4, 2013
I was returning to my island of birth for the first time in 15 years. This hotel provided the luxury, location, and sea views that made this trip extra special. My Mother lived just blocks away, and was able to meet me every morning.

Dining

Angry Nates has very good variety of food, just make sure you mention lite salt.

Celebrate daughter's Birthday

Would recommend Wed, Jul 25, 2012
The location of this hotel was excellent, the food was good. This hotel is old so this mean a deep cleaning should be done in the rooms. When you enter to the room bad smell and mattress were old. There were three construction panel underneath the bed. First day we open the room door and there was a giant roacher which I kill with my shoe. I left it in one corner of the room to see if next day maid will notice. I stay four days and when I left the roacher still in the same place. The location was great, the food but room cleaning FFFFF.

Great Location

Would recommend Sun, Sep 25, 2011
Hotel is in a perfect location, despite being old hotel with imperfections it's a good location if you don't want to get a cab to be near several restaurants or the tours for BUCK ISLAND....you wake up and you're in the boardwalk and can have your breakfast in front of the water....can't get any better than that.

Dining

Angry Nates is a 2 minuite walk within the board walk.....should never miss the smoked beef brisket sandwitch and bread pudding with caramel rum sauce......

Solid Stay

Would recommend Thu, Sep 22, 2011
The hotel is conveniently located and offered just what i needed for a quick business trip. It was on the board walk and right near the "action" in St. X. It had free wireless and free parking. the room was clean though not lavish.I'd stay there again.
