ST. CROIX - HOTEL ZONES
By far the largest of the US Virgin Islands, St. Croix has an abundant, diverse interior, which has earned it the nickname of the `Garden of the Antilles`. St. Croix is also the least developed island, with just two, charming towns, Christiansted and Frederiksted, one at either end of the island. The hotels and resorts on the island include some of the finest accommodations in the Caribbean.
St. Croix’s deluxe resorts lie along the North Shore; its charming old waterfront inns are mostly in Christiansted. An alternative option is to stay at a former plantation or in a condo complex, which offers privacy and the chance to save money by preparing your own meals. A location in Christiansted or Frederiksted close to shops and nightlife, but away from the beach; or an isolated resort where, chances are, your accommodations will be either on the beach or a short walk from it. From such resorts, you’ll have to drive into town for shopping or restaurants and nightlife. The larger resort style hotels can be found at the more popular beaches. Unlike many sprawling resorts, hotels in St. Croix usually have fewer than 200 rooms offering a more personalized stay, whether at a full service resort or a small, cozy bed and breakfast.
