My family and I just finished a week in Christiansted, St. Croix, US VI at the Tamarind Reef Resort. We had a very fine experience there. The rooms were clean, spacious and just what was required of a sun-filled, tropically warm destination. The staff were super-friendly and very helpful, even staying late into the night on the day before Christmas Eve to make sure we got checked in, accommodating our very late arrival to the resort. Great Wi-Fi available free of additional charge, nice cable program selection (Dish Network) for evening viewing before retiring, and a quite environment for sleeping.
The food at the Deep End restaurant was quite good, if a bit more expensive than I would have expected. The lap pool is not heated, so the water is quite cold, but refreshing when the hot son is shining. About the only negative are the bugs: whatever was biting was biting the heck out of us. Much worse on the beach than at the pool, but still pretty bad all around. We all came home with multiple itchy bites all over our bodies. Bring lots of bug spray repellent, which we did not.
