Set above Cruz Bay and the harbor, these handsome condo suites come in studio and one- and two-bedroom configurations (with one three-bedroom suites) and lockout capability, making this a good choice for groups or families. Of the 54 units, only 19 are hotel rooms (these are studio doubles with kitchenettes with blenders); the rest are timeshares in the rental pool. Each is individually decorated, so you never quite know what the decor will look like, but all are nicely laid out, complete with full kitchens, balconies, and washer-dryers. Kitchens are state of the art, with granite countertops and induction cooktops.
