Pavilion and Bar at Little Dix Bay This was the only place that we ate in Little Dix Bay. The buffet breakfasts that were included in our rate were delicious. One day I had pizza here. It was good, but nothing spectacular. On our last night we had dinner. I had a delicious filet mignon and my husband had the vegetable pasta. Aside from the expensive price, we were both very happy with our dinner. I thought it was much better than the dinners we had at other restaurants on the island. The Rock Café Because of the weather, we ate inside instead of "in the rocks". We ordered an appetizer of calamari—it was ok, but the rings were very chewy. For my entrée I had a chicken pasta that...Read More

Spring Bay When we arrived our room was not ready. So we changed and headed out to Spring Bay for LD’s picnic. I thought this beach was gorgeous! Again, I love the exotic feel that the boulders seem to give it. I also think this beach is prettier than the Baths. LD had umbrellas set up as well as a beach barbeque, steel drummers, and limbo. The barbeque lunch was very tasty. We enjoyed exploring the boulders here and getting in some swimming. We didn’t snorkel here because the water was pretty wavy. Little Dix Bay Beach We spent some time here in the afternoon of our arrival day, hoping to get in a little snorkeling. But the water was a little churned up on the left side of the...Read More

It seems like all the restaurants were more expensive than last year. It could just be that since we were on our honeymoon last year, we weren’t paying as much attention to what things cost because we were going all out. We ended up spending a lot more on food than we planned. We were also surprised at how early restaurants stop serving food. I didn’t remember having this problem last year (but maybe we just always went to dinner early- I can’t remember!). Generally we would go to dinner around 7 pm. But one night we didn’t make it out until 8:30-9 pm, and we had to try 3 restaurants for us to find one that was still serving food! Also, my husband really wanted to visit Uncle Joe’s Barbeque on this tr...Read More

We love the beaches here and the easy access snorkeling. Solomon Beach- on our first full day we hiked down to this gorgeous secluded beach. We were the first people there! We relaxed at this beach for a while and did some snorkeling. The water was a little bit rough so it wasn’t the easiest snorkeling. I only snorkeled on the left side of the beach. Saw a few fish and some coral, but nothing spectacular that day. Honeymoon Beach- We then hiked over to Honeymoon Beach. This beach is beautiful! Very few people here and the beach is much larger than Solomon. Again, the water was a bit rough so we did not spend too much time here. Caneel Bay-We walked the gravel road f...Read More

A driver from Little Dix Bay was waiting to pick us up at the ferry—this was very convenient. Coming into the resort I thought the grounds were really pretty and I liked seeing the boulders everywhere—it just gives the island a more exotic feel I think. Little Dix Bay was definitely the splurge of our trip. But it was SO worth it! We had visited the resort last year on a day trip and really wanted to return for a stay. We were on their summer rate which included a full breakfast. I had originally booked a Premium Oceanview Room. But I was looking at their site later and noticed that they had the Ocean Cottages for the same price, so we changed our reservation to that. These rooms are larger than the P...Read More

We were very happy with this bed and breakfast. It gets great reviews and it did not disappoint. I thought the room was nicer than the pictures on their website. We were in the Maho room, which is in the least expensive room category—a garden room. Even though it was a garden view, you could still see the ocean pretty well from our balcony. The view of Cruz Bay was great. The room was nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable. There is also a sitting area with a small sofa and coffee table. There was even a little kitchenette area which had a sink, fridge, microwave and coffee maker—plus dishes, silverware, and stuff to make coffee, tea and cocoa . While not huge, the room was larger than I ex...Read More
