We wanted to NOT be in a large touristy hotel and Cottages By The Sea was highly recommended by our friends living in Frederikstead. There are maybe a dozen little cottages sprinkled amongst a nicely landscaped garden most with a view of the Caribbean and each decorated with a different motif. Our cottage was Caravelle and we were delighted with...

Every day just gets better and better. The staff waited up for us after our plane was delayed. The rooms are not 5 star but they don't claim to be and the sunsets make up for that. Maid service is respectful and helpful.

This was our second annual trip to St. Croix and this year was even better than the last. Last year we stayed at The Buccaneer which was very nice but, we wanted to be able to make our own meals and we wanted to be on the West End of the Island for the amazing beaches. Cottages definitely did not...

Great beach, accommodating staff. Loved being able to cook in the room. Frederiksted not very inviting but the cottages were a great sanctuary. The have a bottle of Rum and cokes in your room when you arrive. Extras at no charge like snorkel gear, kayak and suntan lotion. Staff friendly and I felt secure in the accomodations

Based on a friend’s recommendation we chose to dive with N2 the Blue and through their website found Cottages by the Sea. What a perfect little place to spend a week! They are conveniently located about a mile from downtown Frederiksted. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with a full kitchen, plenty of storage, air conditioning, and free wifi....

I am a travel agent and this was my first trip to the island of St. Croix. My sweetheart picked out the hotel and we could not have stayed in a more perfect place for our trip.
