Spectacular accommodations, either on the beach or garden view rooms. Tranquil hilltop setting. This is a place to truly unwind. Every need is well taken care of and everything you could want is on site. We stayed in the garden rooms overlooking the tennis courts, which are newer and a better deal. Best shower EVER with walls made of local...

This resort is best suited to those who appreciate location and convenience. It is absolutely spectacular, three are 7 world class beaches on property, 5 of which are relatively in developed. If you are looking for 5 star service and resort stay some place else.

The rooms are nothing special, old beach cabanas. This property is infested with mosquitos, I was eaten alive with bites even with the bug spray they give you in your room at check in. For the huge price, I may as well have gone camping. The beaches and trails are public so anyone can use them. The food, not included,...

Just finishing our annual Holiday visit to Caneel and I am pleased to report this was one of the best visits we have ever had since we started to going to Caneel in 1971 (yes 46 years ago). Two big changes for this visit. First, the Turtle Bay dining room has vastly improved over last year with a new staff,...

Just back from another week at Caneel and I am happy to report that it did not disappoint! For us the resort is a beautiful low-key escape where one can truly relax and recharge. We are beach fans so the ability to wake up and walk out of our room onto the beach with such fantastic views is wonderful. Moreover,...

We had the best gelato in the island. The place is very comfortable. The view of the caneel bay at night was spectacular. I had the hazelnut and the raising rum gelato. The girl in the counter was very lovely. We love it!

Caneel Bay Resort Is the best resort I've stayed at and I've stayed at many fairmonts and four seasons. The renovated rooms on Scott beach are great. It doesn't feel like a hotel but rather like your in your own private Caribbean paradise. If your planning a trip to the Caribbean go here!!!

The service from the staff was top notch. The two restaurants, Turtle Bay and ZoZo are fantastic. And my wife and I are New Yorkers and we know good food because of the great variety in NY. The food and service at those two restaurants could not be better. I run a business and the WiFi was not consistent and...

I did a lot of research before this trip and am really pleased we chose to stay here. The private beaches are incredible. Zoso restaurant and lunch offerings are of a high standard. Breakfast buffet, has variety but not on par with the dining options. The absence of phones in the rooms was really inconvenient. I get the 'unplugged' philosophy...
