The staff is friendly and pleasant to talk to. This whole rm needs an update/make over. This has got to be the worst place I've ever stayed in. The refrigerator has rust all over it. The stove absolutely gross, I did hang my clothes in the closet at all. There are small bugs

The location is very nice, on the water with a small private beach. There are 50 units that are all separate cottages that are time shares. Our unit, 31, was one room with two beds and a minuscule kitchen area. There was a television and AC. There were no tables or chairs

I recently stayed at Chenay Bay for two weeks. The location is ideal. This property is clearly still recovering from Hurricane Maria & needs more attention to detail, however the staff & particularly management went out of their way to make sure my stay was all i had hoped it

I have read these poor reviews touting the disappointment some people had while visiting Chenay Bay. I would even venture to guess they are written by the same party due their proximity to each other. (that and usually owners of timeshares arent' allowed to review a property

Chenay Bay Resort is a perfect getaway. The cottages are all painted in sunny, bright colors that made us smile from the moment we arrived. Our studio unit was well equipped and comfortable. The pool was inviting and the beach was fun, with snorkeling equipment , kayaks and

Hi Leslie, It's not an all-inclusive. As far as I know St Croix has only one or maybe two all-inclusive resorts. Cheney is a great base of operations if you like to explore, but if you plan to stay in one place all week you might get bored. I only ate one snack from the restaurant so I didn't rate it. The owner's grandson is running the bar and his buddy is running the kitchen, so it's a small operation, but super friendly. The quesadillas we had were good, and what I saw on other's plates looked good. They have a little bit of everything on the menu $10-$20, omelettes, pancakes, sandwiches, burgers, and a couple of dinners. So it, too, is a bit limited for a full week, so you're better off exploring the island by rental car and sampling some of the many great options. Click on my profile for a good range. Have fun!

Not sure how you define "actual beach," but this is a beach in the sense that sand runs gradually from land to water. It's a great place to sit all day. Lounges are provided. It's inside of a bay, protected by reefs, so the water is flat like a pond. No waves or surfing, but the water is warm and good for swimming. Snorkelling is superb.

Not sure. The bar is open but they were waiting for permits. Call or email them.

"not unit 31 for sure"
"Do your homework. It's not a 5 star resort in the manner some expect. You're left alone, which is what we like."
"Spoke with other guests, all rooms seem to need maintenance."
"avoid this place"
"Go for the view and the adventure"
