Chenay Bay Beach Resort
Ranked #6 of 14 Hotels in Christiansted
Reviewed 16 August 2014

As stated before this property has been owned by the bank. I have heard that it has been sold and hopefully improvements will start soon. The bar/restaurant is going to close and reopen under new ownership in the fall (maybe Oct). I am excited that there will finally be an owner and am looking forward to renovations.

Bankrupt 5 years ago and bank spends nothing on upkeep. Cottages painted over bad wood and rust, windows don't close all the way, pool pump broken and pool unusable, restaurant only burgers and average drinks a few days per week, beach is mostly shells and seaweed just 20 feet from shore, beds were good but no amenities, cable was always going out, and I could continue much more but,would be a beautiful resort if restored. Staff was very friendly and understood problems but could not do much. Would not recommend unless upgraded properly.

Room Tip: None, should be given less than one star on TripAdvisor.

This resort was a pleasant surprise. The beach was fantastic and I loved snorkeling near the beach. One day I counted 20 different species of fish. The cabins were small but comfortable and kept very clean. Though the place was changing ownership staff did everything to keep us happy. We extended our stay from 7 days to 10 days. Make sure to get cabin near beach. We did not like our first cabin and they moved us near beach which we loved.
This place is very simple but peaceful.
I definitly would recommend.

It pains me to give this place only a three but the status of the facilities and the staff really bring the place down. Perfect beach and the room was really good but the bar/ restaurant was in desperate need of some new paint and a carpenter. The staff simply existed and were really of little help in recommending places to go or eat. We did meet the soon-to-be new owners who said that changes were coming so here's to hoping!

First the bed was the absolutely worst bed I have ever, and I mean ever encountered in any of my travels.
The first night they had issues with the cisterns so we had no water for bathing,
Move the next day to another unit. Which was a good thing because overnight, the room was invaded by these little centipede looking critters.
Maid told me that they were only an issue in the "Uphill" rooms, and since we were moving, they should not be an issue. and they weren't, unless you were in one of the "uphill rooms" and the other rooms were full.
From the first day, internet was iffy at the first room, all they have is wireless, and some rooms have coverage and some do not.
On the 2nd day, lost all internet, this was a WORKING trip for me so not having internet, when it was part of the package I agreed to made my life much harder.
When talking to the desk, they said the only guy who could fix it was "Up North" ( The U.S.) and would not be back for another week... That's B.S.
Fix it!
Will not be staying here again, and would recommend that you not do so either.
I will say that the staff was very friendly, even if they could not fix any of the issues I had.

Room Tip: Try a different hotel, but if you must stay, one downhill, closer to the pool is best

I stayed at the Chenay Bay beach resort for 6 days in May 2014. I had did my research an was hoping it wasnt as bad as described. I stayed in a bungalow number 9, it was mildly renovated but the king bed was horrible. We were basically sleeping on coils. the resort itself is pretty much dead which is why I stayed there needed some peace and quiet, so rent a car. The resort also has renters living there. As for the island itself there is not much to do but plenty of bars. Driving around was a little depressing and groceries were very expensive but alcohol and cigarettes are cheap.
