Fodor's Expert Review Tamarind Reef Resort

5001 Tamarind Reef, Cotton Valley, Saint Croix, 00820, U.S. Virgin Islands

Spread out along a sandy beach, these low-slung buildings offer casual comfort and appeal to independent travelers who want the option to eat in or out, as rooms have basic kitchenettes. The roomy and modern accommodations have rattan furniture, tropical-print fabrics, and either a terrace or a deck with views of St. Croix's sister islands. Snorkelers can explore a nearby reef, but shallow water makes serious swimming difficult. There's a snack bar just off the beach, tennis courts, and the Galleon Restaurant and New Deep End restaurants nearby.

PROS

  • good snorkeling
  • tasty restaurant
  • rooms have kitchenettes

CONS

  • there's a walk to the restaurants
