I had come here (Tripadvisor) to read about Caneel Bay Resort before we booked our honeymoon. Our experience at Turtle Bay Estate in NO WAY matched the positive experiences I've read. I was prepared for the high dollar prices and was willing to pay "since it was our honemoon", but we never felt we got what we paid for at ANY of the restaurants at Caneel Bay Resort. (The Sugar Mill was the worst.) When guest gathered to meet/visit at tea time, ferry ride, etc., we would hear echo the same disappointment. I'm not suggesting the food was THAT bad, but we did not get what we paid for. We want to return to Caneel Bay Resort, but next time we will venture "off campus" for dinner. On a positive note, 4pm tea at Turtle Bay Estate was delightful...don't miss it!

Six of us enjoyed dining outside under the stars hearing the waves... We all did three courses and were thrilled with everything. The Romaine, Lobster Truffle salad was amazing... The tuna tartare was perfect with a different take on it... The steak with blue truffle butter... the snapper and mahimahi were both perfection... and the sides are so good - the corn with truffle oil, the mac and cheese, the gnocchi... we all said we could have made meals out of the sides because they were so good! Helpful service and very well timed meal between courses.

My daughter's wedding -- mid June. Flawless event, that was beautifully orchestrated. Ceremony was held on site in close proximity of the Turtle Bay Estate House. Reception followed at sunset--breathtaking! Previous night we had a welcoming reception. Caneel Bay service staff did excellent job at both events. Very accomodating, friendly, and genuinely pleasant. Well worth every penny. Will definitely return.

We had our wedding at Caneel Bay on May 30th. It was an absolutely amazing week long event with our family and friends. We had our rehearsal dinner on the terrace and the wedding reception at Turtle Bay Estate House. Everything was perfect - the resort, the staff, the food, everything. Ruben Alvarez and Vera Payne organized, managed and ran the event to perfection. We were able to just relax and enjoy! We highly recommend Caneel Bay!
