This 15-room hotel is a true gem of Cruz Bay on the island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands. The proprietors operate a very clean and most convenient establishment.
Not only was the hotel’s location convenient, but it offered complimentary beach towels, beach chairs and lounge chairs, on the honor basis and even complimentary sunscreen. Breakfast choices of oatmeal, yogurt, muffins, fresh fruit, and, most importantly coffee, is offered between 7 and 10 AM.
As the primary purpose for my visit was photographing the nearby Virgin Islands National Park, which covers 2/3 of the island, Denise, one of owners, contacted a tour guide vendor on my behalf. This resulted in my obtaining the superb services of Kenneth Marsh, a remarkable and very likable tour guide who, at 82, was born, raised, and has lived most of his life on St. John. He provided a wealth of knowledge on the Park’s history and took me to numerous venues for photo ops throughout the Park. This contact proved invaluable.
Having wrapped up my photo project early, Denise suggested my walking the few minutes to Low Key Watersports where I arranged for 2-tank boat dives on each of two days. The diving was grand with excellent divemasters.
My stay at Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel was outstanding!!
