My husband and took a quick trip to St. John for our 20th anniversary (only stayed 3 nights). We didn't have much time to spend away so we wanted something easy to get to from Atlanta, easy transportation to resort upon arrival, and wanted to stay put in resort to relax and enjoy time to ourselves. Caneel Bay Resort was...

Having walked through the resort a few times in past years while getting to Honeymoon Beach, we had always hoped to return and spend some time at Caneel Bay. We weren't disappointed. From the easy drop off of luggage at the St. Thomas Airport, to the arranged Taxi ride to the Ferry, getting to Caneel Bay was a breeze. We...

For the cost of this resort, I expected far more. The grounds felt dated and in need of upkeep, the rooms were lack-luster. The staff was friendly, transportation throughout the resort was convenient. The wedding attended was lovely, with a delicious meal. Surprised to learn it was a popular celebrity destination.

Now that Rosewood is not managing Caneel, the service has greatly improved. There are more food options/restaurants open, and it feels like the entire space is better used. Of course, rooms have not changed, yes they could be updated, but we love it just the way it is! If anything, they could do with LESS furniture (or smaller pieces) in...

We loved many of the features of this resort such as the private ferry from St. Thomas. We also took full advantage of the facilities and amenities such as the tennis clinic, free snorkeling equipment and massages. This is a place you feel the vibe of generations of loyal families returning. The hiking around the resort is well marked and...

The property is very nice. Loved the wild donkeys, iguanas and birds. Loved that they have some many different beaches with different personalities. My room was awesome at Paradise Beach. I was there alone so it was quiet and peaceful and beautiful - just what I wanted. They mean it when they say no phones/tvs. My cell phone only worked...

We stayed at Caneel Bay Nov 25 to Dec 9, 2016, during their 60th anniversary celebration. Things that took our breath away: spending every day on one of seven private beaches with no crowds, expansive grounds, evenings on the upstairs deck with a glass of wine, delicious breakfast buffet, new friends, dinner in Cruz Bay. We loved the 60 anniversary...

Very exclusive and private. Our place was right on a private beach. Wonderful scenic beauty. Staff was excellent. We snorkeled, sailed and enjoyed wonderful food. We dined on the beach at our private table.

Our 4th visit in the last 10 years. Caneel Bay is unique with an emphasis on the natural beauty of the island. Rooms don't have televisions, but who needs one when nature is at your door? 7 beaches, all with different snorkeling adventures. Saw a green turtle whose shell was over 5 feet in length. As we were the only...

There's no doubt that Caneel Bay is one of the go-to resorts in St John, if not among all the USVI. The great service starts with car pick up from the airport on St Thomas, where you can enjoy complimentary cookies and soft drinks, before a short ferry ride over the St John, with complimentary rum or fruit punch made...
