Many regular readers of this blog point out that we normally cover the cheaper resorts and islands, and for the most part we will continue to do that because that’s what the majority are interested in. However, this week we’ll make another exception by highlighting and incredible deal on St. Croix.
If you haven’t spent much time in the Caribbean you could be excused for not knowing the St. Croix is one of the most exclusive islands of all. There are no cheap hotels or resorts on the island at all, and if that’s what you are looking for Jamaica or a resort on St John is probably a better fit. Still, this week they are offering 59% off the normal room rate at the Divi Carina Bay All Inclusive Beach Resort & Casino, with rates under US$400 per night.
A Beachfront Room at the Divi Carina Bay All Inclusive Beach Resort & Casino for only US$396 per night for two people. For only about US$15 or US$30 more per night you can get a Deluxe or Luxury Beachfront Room, which will be on a higher floor with views of the ocean.
This rate is only available on Expedia, which is our booking partner, and it includes free cancellation. There is no minimum stay required to qualify so you can get it over a long weekend, but availability is limited so don’t wait to book.
Huge rooms with all the amenities
For one thing, these rooms can handle up to four adults, as each has a king bed as well as a double sofabed. Of course the sofabed means that they are like suites with a separate living area, but that’s just the beginning. Each room has a furnished balcony overlooking the ocean as well as a refrigerator, microwave, wet bar, satellite TV with premium channels, and even free wi-fi internet.
You also get blackout drapes, which is a surprisingly important feature in a casino resort because many guests like to stay up late and wake up when they are ready. Each room also comes with a coffeemaker, to make waking up a bit smoother, as well as air conditioning, of course. You can even get a massage in your room for an extra fee.
An exciting casino resort in an exclusive area
The Divi Carina Bay All Inclusive Beach Resort & Casino has only 180 rooms so it’s not one of those enormous cement prisons that so many of the Caribbean casinos tend to be. The casino is open until 4am daily, and it’s a popular spot for tourists and locals alike.
Of course there are two outdoor pools with pool bars, in addition to the 1,000 foot beach directly in front of the resort. Tennis is among the many activities on offer, though most guests seem to prefer to just relax during the day and use their energy in the evenings for the nightly local entertainment before spending a bit of time in the casino itself.
