The decision to book our stay here was the right choice! We loved our stay here. Housekeeping was prompt, staff was very friendly and professional, and the place is right by the boardwalk and beach. There is even an atm conveniently located as well as casino. It was my birthday and my boyfriend made the day extra special though several places were closed down for Covid Ms. Francis made sure to help him arrange a nice gift for me. Ms. Francis is very sweet and has a beautiful spirit. We had an amazing stay!!

Great hotel in the center of everything. Check in was friendly and easy. Locals get 15% off! Room was spacious and clean. AC was cold which was wonderful. They have parking for $25/day which was fantastic and convenient. Would stay here again.

Would not recommend staying here if you value rest and relaxation! The pool is currently closed for renovation, which makes sense as the common area of the hotel is very basic and needs an upgrade. Though the rooms are solid — beds are comfortable and the rooms are large. One thing to note if you have kids or value your sleep on vacation: the walls are paper thin — we could hear our neighbors’ 5 AM alarm and the music they had on all day and night. We cut our 3 night stay short to move to another hotel for 2 more nights.

We booked just days prior to our arrival and then needed to extend our stay two days. Hillarine Joseph, evening front desk, was so kind in changing our reservations so we did NOT have to change rooms midstream, even though the hotel was booked! I don't know *how* she did it, but she made it work for us! Hillarrine is a great asset and has been there over 30 years! Sandi, the manager was wonderful too. She warmly greeted us and helped us throughout the week. Nick, maintanance, helped us with our safe....I didn't fully read the directions! Later, he recognized us and went out of his way to greet us and ask if we needed help. One evening, when he was off duty, Nick saw us wandering the streets of Christiansted-- LOST! He stopped and assisted us with directions...while OFF duty! We stayed in the Harborview room (big secret, these are the best rooms in the house!). The housekeeping staff also did an outstanding job. The Caravelle is located on the Boardwalk and is in a prime walking location. There are many restaurants within walking distance. The water activity boats launch right in front of the hotel. The Casino is under renovation and certainly need it. It's just slot machines. Although every other seat is to remain vacant (COVID), often times one person would just play 2-3 machines simultaneously. Their aggressive behavior made it very uncomfortable for new players to attempt to play. The security team was sparse...and just one more reason we didn't spend much time in the casino. We highly recommend The Caravelle Hotel!
