The Arawak Inn is more like a B & B on the quiet northern part of St. Croix. Managed and owned by a great couple Lionel and Jennifer.

The Arawak Inn is more like a B & B. If you prefer warm, caring, personable hosts to spas and room service at resorts, you will love Jennifer and Lyle. Although it doesn't utilize resort-level decor, The Arawak is exceptionally clean, safe, and the bed very comfortable. The Tv is big, channels plentiful, and wifi free. Coffee was delicious.

Jennifer is the best! Her husband is a terrific cook, the breakfasts were great. I asked about a traditional St. Croix salt fish breakfast and the next morning they made it for me.

Great location on North Shore near Salt River Bay Marina and about 10 minutes from Cane Bay and several good restaurants. This Bed and Breakfast style hotel was quiet, comfortable and welcoming with delicious coffee and homemade breakfasts custom-made to order each day. Our favorite was Jennifer's Eggs Benedict!

On this most recent trip to St Croix, we didn't want the hustle and bustle of a resort nor the condominium conundrum (as we call it) so chose the Arawak Bay: The Inn at Salt River.
