    We are considering Carambola Beach Resort - Home - St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands for our wedding - has anyone been there or heard anything about it? so far - i know that John Rockefeller built Carambola and Caneel Bay (St. John) as family retreats and that Caneel Bay was bought by Rosewood Hotels and maintained and is 5 Star. Carambola apparently fell to the wasteside a bit and a new owner came in last year with $20Million and started extensive renovations. It looks pretty great and sounds even better from my conversations with them but if any of you ladies have any info it is greatly appreciated!!!
    Thanks, Alyssa

        I know Carambola is a nice resort. We were on St. Croix several months ago and they were completing renovations. We were doing a wedding at The Buccaneer Resort St Croix Hotels, Virgin Island Hotels- Luxury Rooms and Suites at The Buccaneer Resort Hotel and they did a great job for our couple. We were very impressed how nice the property was & how nice the staff was to everyone. Good luck deciding!

          There is a great article in either Islands or Caribbean Travel and Life magazine this month. I'm not sure which because I subscribe to both. They talk about the revitalization of the island and I believe they mention the Carambola. I haven't been there, we're getting married on St. John, but I visit a USVI message board on occasion, vinow.com and I know some of those folks would be happy to answer any questions- they probably have pics they can share too.

            this is a really old post - we were seriously considering Carambola before we decided on Hawaii. St. Croix wound up not being the right fit for us but good luck to all of you ladies who may choose it!
