You really have to be careful which unit you rent here. They are all individually owned and vary drastically in condition and amenities. The unit we were put in initially was 102C. It was in TERRIBLE condition, many things broken, filthy, and was bare bones. However, after complaining to Ben, the agent, he actually moved us to another unit for the remainder of our stay for the same price. The new unit, 201A was in great shape. Everything in good repair and CLEAN and it included many small amenities like snorkle gear, DVD player, etc. The property overall is fairly well maintained. The grounds are nice, but little things like the locking gate to the beach was broken and simply propped open. Which is good since they gave us the wrong code at check in and we had to ask another guest how to get back in. A few additional notes, the place is not smoke free even though your unit may be. Many guests smoke out on their gallery and it might blow right into yours. Also, the 'owners' don't follow the rules of the association, so even though it says no pets, people will have dogs there, make noise late, etc.

Room tip: Read reviews, select your unit carefully, they are not all the same quality.

We stayed at Colony Cove for two weeks. Another couple stayed with us the first week. We rented #305C, two bedrooms, two baths, a great balcony with a nice view of the ocean with exactly what we needed. The property is well maintained, the pool is kept clean, and the beach was awesome. Our property owner, Pam, is an absolute gem. She made sure that our stay was perfect. While we were there, our washer broke down, and within 48 hours, Pam had new one installed. The 4 of us made several meals in the well-furnished kitchen, but also took advantage of the two restaurants within walking distance - Breezez and The Golden Rail. The location of this property was great. A 10 minute drive east places you right downtown Christiansted; and 20 minutes west you're in Cane Bay ... just a bit further is Fredericksted. We travelled the entire island easily and it was great to return to our condo!! If you go to St. Croix, check this property out (VRBO #751029). It was TERRIFIC!!

My husband & I and another couple rented the mentioned condo, Colony Cover, from Jan 11 through Feb 1. We found, 2 our dismay, several issues with this condo.
Upon our arrival, we discovered that in the 2nd bedroom, under a throw-rug, immediately as you entered the room and also in front of the closet door, 5-6 broken floor tiles with extremely sharp edges. Each time we entered the room we did so with fear & trepidation that the tile pieces would come through the rug and pierce our feet.
We voiced our concerns 2 the management here. Maintenance people worked hard 2 remove & put in new tile. Needless 2 say, the dust from the grinder & then cutting the tile went throughout the condo - on the furniture, our clothes, & our bedding. The initial tile work was done late Saturday evening. The 4 of us renters worked late throughout the night cleaning floors & furniture (purchased costly cleaning supplies), washing bedding as well as most clothing. Ugh! This continued through part of Sunday & also Monday. The dust made breathing difficult.

Another huge concern is the cost of this unit! As we have visited with owners & renters here @ Colony Cove, we have learned the rent per night ranges from $175-$225. Our daily rent is $350 - quite a difference!!!!

When we rented our unit, we asked for & were told we would have an ocean view. That certainly is not the case. The view from our screened-in porch is overgrown shrubs.
Once we discovered problems( were more), repeated calls 2 the person in charge of renting our unit were not responded 2. We never heard from Jenna following voicing concerns. She refused all communication at this point. We can only assume that either Jenna OR the owners, or both, were not concerned at all for our comfort. Plus, we found them not to be honest about information they gave us before we arrived.

To pay $350 per day; then spend two full days cleaning is very unfair.

One nice thing about Colony Cove is that it is close to the water and we felt safe.

Unit 103C definitely needs updated in major ways, kitchen needs 2 b better equipped, and a thorough MAJOR cleaning throughout. At the present time, avoid Unit 103C @ Colony Cove @ all costs!

Room tip: Unit 103C had not been updated in any way- not the stove, refrigerator, microwave, countertops.

Don't really know that much about the area. The outside property is beautiful. Our unit needed some work. The shower faucet was quiet loose and the commode was a slow flush. During the day there were loud workers downstairs but what the heck we were in St Croix. It was beautiful

While the resort is a bit dated, and your personal experience will vary based on the owner, I can recommend Colony Cove.

The good:
Pool on site. Clean, decent size (small, but never crowded).
Beach. While a bit murky right when you get in, the tire reef allowed us to see many more species than even when we snorkeled at Cane Bay. Not too busy, and certainly a good view. (Note: I was surprised how difficult it was to find a condo with immediate beach access - many hotels, rentals have a great view, but require a drive.)
Friendly staff.
Location - central to much you may want to do. While Christensted is only about a 5-10 minute drive, you can get everywhere else in about 30 minutes. We were able to explore both east and west from our northshore home base at Colony Cove. PLUS -- a walk next door to Mill Harbor means a restaurant is essentially onsite - or walk just a bit down the beach to Breezes at Club St. Croix.
Washer/Dryer -- A great thing to have to allow you to back light.
The view (also depending on the unit) - the balcony was wonderful for morning coffee or evening drinks. The water is so blue and it's so peaceful.

The not-so-great:
It's just a bit dated. The bathrooms were small (master bath didn't even have a door) and a bit beat-up/grungy. The balcony doors stuck and were tough to open. Our particular unit had some leaks/maintenance issues. While the Christmas winds made it generally nice in the common area, the A/C didn't really kick in strongly enough to make bedroom sleeping as cool, comfortable as we really like.

So -- I'm nitpicking a lot, just to give the full picture, but I still rate it very good and would likely recommend it. While it's not a luxury resort, you're not paying a luxury price -- plus you get a lot of great things that aren't easily available otherwise.

Room tip: If you don't book direct, VRBO also has a lot of units at Colony Cove. Find one with a great view that looks updated and well maintained.
