Great property. Beach was large for the size of the resort which meant plenty of room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms and facilities were clean and modern. Appetizers were great, main dishes were good. Mixed drinks were well made. Scuba on site, and though i don't scuba dive i heard good things. I didn't have any plans to leave the resort, but if you would like to go to outside restaurants or get groceries you would need a car. There is nothing super close to the resort that would be in walking distance. There is a store at the resort but as usual the prices are higher than in the grocery store.
The pool was nice. The condos were very clean. Unit 215 obviously has an owner that cares about the unit. Contrast was night and day.. This should really be 2 review--a 2 star for 208 and a 4 star for 215. We didn't appreciate the barking dogs at 6:30 am and periodically throughout the day. The office was lcourteous but unhelpful when inquiring about car rentals, which we just did on our own, or excursions. They handed us the brochure that we had already seen with nothing good or bad to say.
Our condo was great. We came with our 20 something daughter and neice. The 2 bedrooms and bathrooms were great! A nice kitchen so we could get some groceries and have breakfast snacks, etc. Plenty of dishes, glasses, and cooking stuff! Mind you the complex is oider but well kept. There is AC in the bedrooms but not in the living room. We managed! The pool was a few short steps away as was the beach. The beach was not the prettiest in St. Croix but there are SO many others on the island, if you have a car it is NO problem! We would go back in a minute!
Absolutely beautiful, immaculate unit, fully equipped and full unobstructed view of the beach all the way to Christenstead Harbor. This 2 bedroom/2 bath unit, newly furnished with the latest in Caribbean decor could not have been more pleasurable. Colony Cove is a condo community located right on the beach about 1/2 mile outside of Christianstead. Walk up or down the beach to a fabulous beach resturant, enjoy snorkeling right off the beach at the reef surrounding this harbor, making it calm and serene for swimming and sunbathing. The lovely maintained landscaping, herb gardens and walkways provide lush island foliage for your viewing pleasure on your morning stroll. Centrally located on the island a quick drive can get you to the Botanical Gardens, two beautiful golf courses being the Carambolla and The Buckaneer, downtown Christenstead for shopping,resturants and festivals and nearby Frederikstead for the open air concerts on Friday evenings. Laid back, no crowds and a must see to enjoy the true Caribbean spirit of relaxation.
