Travellers' Choice
GreenLeaders Platinum level
Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel is an intimate accommodation made up of 14 guest rooms and one penthouse apartment suite. The hotel was completely renovated in 2010 and 2013 blending chic Miami boutique hotel decor with the more casual style of an island villa. The result is a clean, simple yet elegant venue. The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Cruz Bay town's best restaurants, bars and shopping. This lively location is the perfect spot for accessing all of St. John's beaches and attractions. Just around the corner from the ferry dock (only 250 feet away), Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel is the closest accommodation upon arrival to St. John. No taxi or rental car is required and there are no hills or winding roads to traverse - just stroll on over.

Clean rooms, room service daily, great continental breakfast. Extremely helpful to get you anywhere you need, tells best places to go. 100 percent best location to grab a cab to beaches, best restaurants, all within 2 minutes. Grab a chair from them, head to beach for like 8 dollars. So worth it. The owners were top notch, anything you need they do the best to get your questions, needs, wants done with a smile. I really enjoyed their company as well.

Hotel's Favourite
Just returned from 9 days on St John and at Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel. Excellent Hotel, friendly helpful owners, fantastic location - easy walk to anything in Cruz Bay , nice little walk to Honeymoon or Solomon Bay on park trail , easy open cab to other beaches, even $1.00 to Coral Bay on bus if so desire. So Easy to make our way back after another great evening at WOODY’S .... Hotel very clean, nice comfortable bed and sheets and shower bathroom - soap shampoo/conditioner hair dryer.. breakfast with oatmeal, yogurt, fruit and packaged rolls/muffins. Absolutely don’t need a rental car and I’d highly recommend against ,, but if you like driving around .... Overall, I’d say very quiet with nice seating areas in lobby and 2nd floor and we had nice little deck off our room (8).. Highly recommended both Cruz Bay Boutique and St John’s .. Any questions call owners and they will help with room or other ?’s. Live Life - Visit

If you are looking for a central location to explore the island, this is your best bet. No need to rent a car or find a taxi because everything in Cruz Bay is walkable from here. Highly recommend this as your best option!

It is rare for me to say that a hotel was like home, but Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel certainly felt like we belonged there during our stay at St. John. David and Denise were not just folks who checked us in and out at the front desk; they were the local experts who gave great advice on beaches, tours, and restaurants. I am so glad we asked them to make restaurant reservations in advance for us because on the nights we didn't make advanced bookings, the wait at some restaurants lasted for eternity! They also were genuinely interested in how we had spent our day when we came back and answered our questions in detail even if they must have been asked the same questions innumerable times. Denise even provided an unforgettable science lesson on the link between parrot fish and white sand! My husband decided much later to join my son and I on this trip; David and Denise made it possible to accommodate all of us. We were here to snorkel, and their tips on which beaches to go to and how to get there were spot on. We especially liked Honeymoon Beach (the clearest water ever!) and Maho Beach (Turtle sightings!!!) it was wonderful getting breakfast items that were filling such as oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt before we embarked on our beach adventures, bringing along with us the chairs and towels graciously provided by the hotel. The rooms we got back to were always clean; the shower pressure was powerful, and the air conditioner was most welcome after a long day spent in the sun. I have no sense of direction, but I felt like a local since the hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Cruz Bay. We never had to worry about missing the ferry, since it was so close by. Even at night, I always knew how to get back 'home!' St. John and its pristine beaches are now so very far, far away, but I hope to return to Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel...without needing a map, I'll know how to get there straight off the ferry! Thanks for being such great and caring hosts, Denise and David...

We absolutely loved our time here! David and Denise made us feel so welcome from the moment we walked in the door. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and cozy. It is centrally located and walking distance to all the amazing local restaurants. Denise and David went above and beyond to make us feel special. They recommended dining experiences and even went as far as to make reservations for us! They laid out the map of St. John and highlighted must see beaches and hikes for us, too! Our trip was so special thanks to their hospitality and kindness. We will always stay here every time we visit St. John!
