This summer got away from me and I apologize for not writing this review earlier. I received so much help from people that posted prior to our trip that I wanted to thank everyone and also give our feedback... so, this August, a group of 30 spent the week at Gentle Winds. We had an excellent time and thoroughly enjoyed St. Croix. Gentle Winds proved to be a perfect location for a group of our size. They had plenty of condos, the pool and beach were great, and the snack bar worked out well. I will say that the grounds are beautiful, but some of the condo units were outdated ( we rented a total of 7)... so choose carefully if you book here. Some of the highlights of our vacation: snorkel/sail trip with Black Beard excursion was a fun day... there have been complaints about the condition of the reef at Buck Island... ignore them, it is worth the trip. Several in the group also did the night kayak tour with Sea-Thru-Kayak,. THe experienced kayaking members of the group loved the bioluminescent tour, although some of the newbies did struggle with the kayak... again, just about all had positive comments. Two of our group did the intro to scuba diving located at Cane Bay beach and loved it. They weren't able to see much but it was enough of an introduction and they plan to become certified. Restaurants that were our most favoriteL EAT at Cane Bay, and Rowdie Joes. Both had interesting menus and some of us frequented them twice. We also did a huge take out order from La Reine chicken shack... yummy chicken and johnny cakes. The only disappointment was the bar next door refused to serve the men in our group who were waiting for our order. Having a group this size could have been a problem, but we found the island to be easy to get around, the locals for the most part very friendly and plenty to do for everyone. Thanks again for all of the help in planning our trip.
