Stayed here for 5 days in a "bare tent site" with my family and we really liked it here. The new owners are updating the facilities, so it should be really nice by next year (hopefully they will not raise prices!). Cinnamon Bay is gorgeous but we found out it is the windiest bay on the island, so we went...

Spent a week at Cinnamon Bay in an eco-tent in March. The platform tent was new, very clean and way bigger than I was expecting. Beds were comfy. If you unzipped the canvas windows it was amazing. Felt like it was just you the woods and the waves. Showers are open ceiling and have one water temperature when you pull...

We stayed in a Cottage right on the beach.Overall it was a good experience. I had stayed their 20 years ago and I have to say it's a little worn..I have not camped in all those years so it was a new adventure.I would say the people you meet are great and that makes the whole experience work.Don't know what...

This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. Water is so clean, see through. It has the most gorgeous shades of torqoise. I loved relaxing and looking up at the hills and palm trees. The cottage was right in front of the water which made it super convinieron. Cottages were a bit outdated, and the...

We stayed for 7 nights. I would not stay again although many people do come back. My husband and I are frequent campers but the inconvenience of a walk in site combined with inability to leave anything in the tent was too much. We enjoyed many snorkeling sites on the island, but, don't waste your time trying to snorkel there....

Have been coming for 26 years. The environmental degradation caused by these " Eco Tents" is disgusting. The pictures are just a fraction of what has been cut in a highly sensitive area. A sand dune was also bulldozed.

Comfy camping. Stayed 4 nights in a new ecotent. Never slept better camping! Had a blast every day. Hiked, rented a paddle board, snorkeled, sailed. The new restaurant called RainTree has a nice bar. Lunch was great, dinner still needs a more work. All in all, one of our best vacations. We're coming back for sure!

As an occasional visitor to this beautiful campground, I am dismayed by some of the changes that have taken place after the business changed hands. Clear campsites (where people could pitch their own tents) are giving way to state-of-the-art platform pre-made tents. While handsome, and equipped with fans and electricity, these made for desert tents leak. Tree rats abound (steal...

Well, "Cinnamon Bay Campground" is no more. Cinnamon Bay is under new management and they, evidently with the blessing of the National Park Service, are in the process of converting it to "Cinnamon Bay Resort." In keeping with the new name, the new management has installed so-called "Eco Tents" (about $200/night) on almost all of the former ($37/night) bare sites....

We stayed at the cottages in Feb 2017. We have been visiting for years and used to be appalled at how rude the staff was (other than waterfront concession staff) to the visitors. That has dramatically changed. Everyone was nice to extremely nice. The Eco-Tents look good. I'm a little worried about the reports of rain getting in them. I...
