Enjoy spectacular dive sites, scenic hiking in St. Croix
The Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa is the ultimate spot for diving, hiking, golf and, of course, relaxation. The resort is situated on 28 acres of lush native St. Croix landscape where guests enjoy trail access, diving in a secluded reef area and every type of boating adventure one could desire. St. Croix is the largest of the three inhabited U.S. Virgin Islands and the two main cities on the island, Frederiksted and Christiansted are an easy drive away. The resort is pretty as a picture, thanks to buildings with Dutch-inspired red roofs.
Highlights
  • Premium dive sites within 200 yards of beach
  • Full service spa
  • Swimming pool
  • Adjacent to Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed golf course
Rooms
Spacious rooms (garden view and ocean front rooms with kitchen have been recently renovated) are decorated in classic Caribbean style, bright and sunny, with rich mahogany beam and dark wood furniture. Rooms at Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa are fitted with TVs (some flat-screen), air conditioning and ceiling fan, walk-in closet and refrigerator. Rooms also feature British-inspired private screened in porches. All the amenities one would expect are here, too, including hair dryer, safe, clock radio and direct-dial phone.
Features
Ocean-inspired activities are the main attraction at this resort, from scuba and snorkeling to kayaking and windsurfing. Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa is the only resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands where guests can scuba right from the beach. At one of the resort's two restaurants the menus include classic Caribbean fare such as citrus grilled shrimp or mahi mahi with pineapple mango chutney or more typical American food, including burgers and fresh salads. Guests who desire the ultimate in relaxation will want to visit the Spa at Carambola for a signature massage. Popular keratin hair treatments also are available.

Overall very nice. Nice grounds, nice pool, good food, nice staff. The rooms were very comfortable and appointed nicely. First time staying on St Croix. Would consider going again, and would definitely consider staying at this hotel again.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Most attractions and most out of hotel dining are at least a 20 minute drive which means you will most likely need to rent a car. I found the driving to be easy to navigate on the island which makes it worth staying at this remote location.

Nice with Some Issues

HUSBAND: Great place to stay! They have all the necessities of a nice place. Great rooms, beautiful views and beach. Nearby walking trails. St.Croix is spread out and this hotel is a drive from Christiansted and Frederiksted. Not a problem if they had more than one (very good) restaraunt available. Get a rental vehicle, otherwise you will have to get taxis. Also, there's a $33/day service fee "for energy" charged to all customers on their final bill which seemed shady to not mention up front. WIFE: Beautiful hotel, beautiful beach. It's difficult not to compare to other beautiful places I've been, but in the scope of St. Croix it's lovely. The restaurant is delicious but a little expensive. If you're going to St. Croix I would recommend.

Perfect Balance

The location was perfect, tropical forested steep hillsides cradle the attractive resort laden with red roofs, polished stone pathways, and greenways that run down to the silky sand beach flowing into the clear bright blue Caribbean. Great reefs to snorkel and dive. Being on the north end of the island, there can be waves when the seas get rough. That said, the friendliest dive masters at Sweet Bottom Dive Shop right on the resort are always ready to guide you down under where the water is always calm.

Go to eat at The Wave, just a few miles down the road. Some of the best food on the island with a breathtaking view.

Nearly in Paradise

I had the pleasure of staying at the Carambola resort for my NON-honeymoon (he changed his mind). But I definitely made the BEST of it. St. Croix was the perfect place to escape reality and find myself again. The resort in one word is GORGEOUS! The beach is beautiful and just steps away from every room. The rooms themselves were very spacious and comfortable. I loved having the screened in porch! Service was great! Dial 0 for ice or whatever you need and a friendly staff member will be right over! Overall the staff was stupendous!! Jackie in the front office made me feel like family the moment I walked in. The rest of the staff was just as friendly and kind. The resort is on the opposite side of the island from Fredericksted and Christiansted, so you'll have to take a cab, rental, or shuttle whenever you want to venture off the resort, but I really enjoyed the seclusion and privacy. I will say that one downside was the limited menu in the restaurants. However, they did take on a new head chef whom I had the pleasure of meeting within the last few days there. I was thrilled by the specials that were being added to the daily menus. I can't wait to see what Chef Tom brings to the future of the resort. That being said, I will be back! I fell in LOVE with St. Croix and Carambola. They will always hold a special place in my heart.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Rent a car! Although they drive on the left-hand side, you get used to it really quick. You can make your rental reservation at the front desk and they bring the agent and car to you!! Definitely worth it to do exploring across the island!

Carambolo resort Surprise!

The room was surprising .... fantastic! The sitting room and bathroom/shower was huge. The screened in porch is a treasure. We left windows open to the porch all night and woke to birds singing and the gentle crash waves. The bed was comfortable, not a big fan of foam pillows. The sofa bed, well, it was a sofa bed. Move the porch cushions to the sofa bed nightly and it makes it decent. I think every room has a view of the beach, although ours was advertised as garden view. Yeah we had to look across 150' of lawn, palm trees, and beautiful flowers to see the gorgeous beach.

First experience in St Croix

This was our first experience in St Croix, the hotel was secluded from everything. The beach is good, great snorkeling and scuba on site. There were discrepencies between the hotel website, and what was actually there. There is no suana, the hot tub was off all week, and there were no "boats" available. They had kayaks there but the staff said they belonged to someone other than the hotel. It was a good experience, and a much needed vacation, I would go back in a heartbeat, it is a little disapointing that items advertised were not there or available.

Go snorkeling on the first day and its all you will want to do, or take advantage of the low rates of the onsite dive shop, (low compared to Florida).

Beautiful secluded location

We had an awesome, relaxing, adventure filled week in St Croix. The hotel is beautiful, just missing that final level of fussiness that would give it 5 stars, but most definitely a wonderful place to stay. (what do I mean? I wanted someone to have swept the sand of the boardwalk to the beach every morning;-)!) I lounged around on beach, by pool, or under palm cabana while my husband took advantage of the on site dive shop to discover and fall in love with scuba diving. The food was very good and bar was nice. I'm definitely glad we rented a car to explore both cities and find our favorite local places to eat. Great for families as a vacation spot, our room had a full kitchen.
