The ocean views from the room and all dining areas, the palm tree beaches, and the service of food and drink on the beach,pool. Entertainment every night, fantastic buffet breakfast abundence of fruits,juices,meats,breads and you can have a special breakfast cooked for you. The free shuttle ride around the property, all free activities, Kayaks, snorkel, beautiful golf course and tennis courts, food is great, there for 6 days never left. Family owned since 1947 , owner is great. No one could ever be disappointed in staying here. Want to go back soon. Only thing was they are not to quick with morning coffe, but vewry friendly, that is it is a perfect place for vacation.
You can snorkel, kayak, relax at the beach, play tennis, run and play golf without leaving the resort!! Staff is very nice and helpful and make you feel at home. Housekeeping needs is spotty and needs improvement.
Nice staff, excellent views, great rooms. A little dated but OK. Way too expensive for drinks and food!!!!! I think they would do better if they lowered bar prices and food prices. I think they would be busier.
The food was excellent, the beachfront very nice Very expensive for the accomadations, not really a 5 star hotel. The beach areas are too far from main building
The location to the beach was perfect , couldn't have been better. Only a few steps from your room and you are swimming in the ocean. Picture perfect white sand and turquoise waters. very friendly staff was there to help in any way. not the hotel itself but the restaurant on the island needs some help.
Beautiful view,nice beach and a very pleasant staff. The restaurant on the property was grossly over priced,my girlfriend and I ate breakfast one morning and we got the cheapest breakfast on the menu which was a bagel and a very small coffee which came to $16.00, the breakdown $5 bagel,$3 coffee!!!!!!!
The location and view was definitely the highlight of this hotel. The room wasn't the best and seemed antiquated.
Beautiful views and not in downtown proper, but close enough to get there fast. Minimal dining options and bar closes way too early.
Room is like an apartment or villa Restaurant don't serve dinner
It's like being in your beach apartment no
Great View and location. Poor customer service at restaurant and unclean bed.
Location. Our room 217 overlooked the beach and pool and waterfall and restaurant and bar.had a sink and small fridge and microwave,along with coffee maker and supplies. The balcony railings were a little rusty but can be expected so near salt water. Nothing
The fiery ride was lovely. Hotel staff was very polite & friendly. Especially front desk clerks. The beach front & View from my room was beautiful. The hotel front entrance water falls was not working & never clean, leafs was every where in the water. They should offer more night life entertainment for guest.
Location is excellent. The hotel has been upgraded since my visit last year.
The property the hotel is located on is super. The hotel & grounds are not cared for. Suite I was in had a crack in the wall that extended to the ceiling & floor. Floor tiles need 2 b replaced; kitchen has no sink dishes had 2 be washed in bathroom sink. Needs 2 b upgraded. Will never stay or recommen
It's like being home, fridge, microwave, perfect !! No parking provided, you have to park in the street
Great property. Beach was large for the size of the resort which meant plenty of room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms and facilities were clean and modern. Appetizers were great, main dishes were good. Mixed drinks were well made. Scuba on site, and though i don't scuba dive i heard good things. I didn't have any plans to leave the resort, but if you would like to go to outside restaurants or get groceries you would need a car. There is nothing super close to the resort that would be in walking distance. There is a store at the resort but as usual the prices are higher than in the grocery store.
The cleanliness of the unit, the close proximity of the pool, the beach, the restaurant and bar. we did not like the taste of the drinking (tap) water or the bar drinks like pina colada etc. we did not like the long wait for taxi cab. total lack of public transportation.
The pool was nice. The condos were very clean. Unit 215 obviously has an owner that cares about the unit. Contrast was night and day.. This should really be 2 review--a 2 star for 208 and a 4 star for 215. We didn't appreciate the barking dogs at 6:30 am and periodically throughout the day. The office was lcourteous but unhelpful when inquiring about car rentals, which we just did on our own, or excursions. They handed us the brochure that we had already seen with nothing good or bad to say.
Our condo was great. We came with our 20 something daughter and neice. The 2 bedrooms and bathrooms were great! A nice kitchen so we could get some groceries and have breakfast snacks, etc. Plenty of dishes, glasses, and cooking stuff! Mind you the complex is oider but well kept. There is AC in the bedrooms but not in the living room. We managed! The pool was a few short steps away as was the beach. The beach was not the prettiest in St. Croix but there are SO many others on the island, if you have a car it is NO problem! We would go back in a minute!
Absolutely beautiful, immaculate unit, fully equipped and full unobstructed view of the beach all the way to Christenstead Harbor. This 2 bedroom/2 bath unit, newly furnished with the latest in Caribbean decor could not have been more pleasurable. Colony Cove is a condo community located right on the beach about 1/2 mile outside of Christianstead. Walk up or down the beach to a fabulous beach resturant, enjoy snorkeling right off the beach at the reef surrounding this harbor, making it calm and serene for swimming and sunbathing. The lovely maintained landscaping, herb gardens and walkways provide lush island foliage for your viewing pleasure on your morning stroll. Centrally located on the island a quick drive can get you to the Botanical Gardens, two beautiful golf courses being the Carambolla and The Buckaneer, downtown Christenstead for shopping,resturants and festivals and nearby Frederikstead for the open air concerts on Friday evenings. Laid back, no crowds and a must see to enjoy the true Caribbean spirit of relaxation.
This Hotel is right on the water. The only strange part is that the porches face the inland part. Not a big deal when you consider that the boardwalk has benches.
The rooms were basic, beds, fridge, microwave, TV, and DSL internet service (you had to leave a $5.00 refundable deposit for the cord if you didn't have your own) but they were clean and comfortable. We were right on the water in the middle of the action on the boardwalk and had a pool overlooking the harbor. The price here was defiantly right for the quality we got and I do plan on going back to St. Croix and staying here again next year.
I stayed here with my mother. There were only 2 rooms per floor, which was wonderful since my best friend and HER mother took the second room. We were neighbors and the only ones on our floor. The balcony, which overlooked the open water, was easily accessed from our room with a floor-to-ceiling glass sliding door. The balcony had a lot of space, and in the direction we were facing, we saw sea planes landing every day. Hotel room had a great air conditioner, a microwave and a small refrigerator. There's no elevator, which may be a problem for those with physical disabilities or the elderly, so beware! There's a restaurant directly on premises called Angry Nate's. The food is good, the atmosphere is nice, and there's live music on Fridays. The hotel is right on the boardwalk (where there are even more bars and restaurants), and there are spectacular views and a constant, wonderful breeze. For just $5 you can hop on a 5-minute ferry ride to Protestant Cay and a relaxing time on the beach. It's also a short walk to a local museum (only $3 for a self-guided tour!) and a ton of souvenir shops. Overall, an extremely convenient hotel. I would definitely stay here again.
Definitely I would stay in this hotel again. There are many stores near it, the hotel employees were kind.
I like the hotel, it was very clean, the staff was friendly and a very nice place to stay for the money. I will stay there again and again.
If you want a basic room, no frills, reasonable price, then this is your place. It is convenient, being located on the boardwalk. The hotel personel were helpful and friendly. They are new to computer reservations, and had me worried on check in when they said they couldn't find my reservation. I showed them the papers I had printed from home. After about 30 minutes of my nerves on edge, I was finally assigned a room. My in room refrig froze my food. There are special towels for the beach, which they don't mention. The internet connection only worked one day. The flowers and bushes are lovely. I enjoyed the pool.
A reasonable choice for a casual hotel. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the pool is nice for cooling off, and the restaurant below the hotel (Angry Nate's) is a nice addition. This is nothing fancy, but fits the bill for moderate accommodations.
I wanted to be close to the clubs in Christiansted and the Holger Danske was perfect as I was traveling with a rock band on tour in St Croix. Zebos is right across the street and the Brew Pub just a short walk down the board walk. My room was small but very clean! there were big fluffy pillows and a comfy bed. I would have liked a water view but for only $*a night I was happy with my first floor room. There was a lovely private patio in a relaxing garden setting. If I wanted to stare out at the water I just took the garden path down to the bar and restaraunt where the friendly bartender had my drink ready for me before I even sat down. The food was good and you could tell the wait staff enjoyed their jobs. I met many new friends there as everyone was so open and friendly and willing to help. I even had a mini frig and the grocery shop was just around the corner. Just stroll along to the nice boutiques and jewelry shops. Very few T-shirt and junk shops. Don't forget to buy your rum. I don't feel this is a good place for young children as there is no place to run and play. But it is perfect for young adults on a budget, people on business, or just a great place to relax in a great location.
My husband and I visited St.Croix and stayed at the Holger Danske for 2 weeks in December. The staff at the hotel was wonderful, our rooms were clean, spacious with a gorgeous view of the harbor. What was really nice was the location of the hotel, right on the boardwalk in the heart of Christiansted! There was live music at night and many resturaunts to choose from with fabulous food and drinks. I would highly recommend the Holger Danske Hotel!
I chose this propery based mostly on price, as I come to Christiansted only to dive. I really only need a clean room with a working shower. The hotel took some time finding my reservation too. All the info was on paper, and of course mine was the very last in the pile. They put me two doors away from the lobby (courtyard entry). I was glad to not haul my big suitcase up stairs, but I wish I'd switched to another room. I was about 20 feet away from daily construction noises...they are still finishing this hotel. They start working about 7:30 am because it gets so hot at midday. They were cutting tiles and wood and making lots of noise. I also noticed that the two 'emergency exits' (according to the map in the room) were blocked with construction materials and also gated and padlocked. One way out...through the lobby. And don't judge the place by the lobby...it's beautifully appointed with a piano, a public computer, a bar, painted ceramic lamps and vases full of giant artificial bouquets; faux old Danish charm. Nothing else here is so opulent. The pool is tiny. There are no lounge chairs, only a few metal and plastic deck chairs. Guests are welcome to use the pool (and gym) at the sister hotel, King Christian, but who wants to slosh up two blocks of open street after a dip in the pool? I'm not much of a pool person...I was here to dive. As for hot showers...it took about 20 minutes for shower to get warm...front desk assured me this was normal when there aren't many guests. So much for conserving water. Plenty of guests on Saturday, loud and obnoxious from about 2 to 3:30 am. Spend more, feel safer.
The hotel itself is very charming. When we arrived they had lost our reservation. Staff was not concerned that we had a conf.#. Staff could not find our reserv. but had us listed in file. Staff said that they were booked solid and could not accomodate us. After ''conversing'' for 30 mins. and promising manager would soon be there, I called online travel website. The staff person changed her attitude and miraculously ''found'' a room... However it was a room with twin beds,not at all what we were promised. We accepted this room with the promise that we would be moved the next day. We inquired about moving the next morning and were informed that there were no other rooms. We were told that it was booked solid and they could not accomodate us moving. On our last day, we were told we could move at 4pm. We stayed put. Why move at 4pm? We were checking out the next am anyway. If they were booked it was a mystery to us. We only saw one other couple the first day, and only a basketball team from St.Thomas was staying there too. They did not have any supervison and constantly were running on the balcony screaming and banging on our door in the middle of the night (2:00am.) They were very rude and disruptive and seemed to be so out of control. The staff said that they were there every year at this time and always had to be ''spoken'' to about their behavior. She apologized and that problem was addressed. I don't know whose fault it was that they lost our reservation,but it has made me not want to ever use this service again,because our flight reservations were messed up too. It was a disaster from the get go!
