Newly renovated rooms and cottages on St. Thomas with private balconies
At the Best Western Carib Beach Resort on St. Thomas, location is key. The resort is a five-minute walk from Lindbergh Bay Beach and just over two miles from downtown Charlotte Amalie for easy access to shopping and dining. Guests hop the free shuttle to the resort's sister property, the Emerald Beach Resort, where they enjoy complimentary use of non-motorized water toys, including windsurfers, small sailboats and snorkeling gear. On site, Fajitas Mexican restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Highlights
  • Newly renovated rooms
  • Secluded cottages available
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free shuttle across the bay to Emerald Beach Resort
Rooms
Every air-conditioned room at the Best Western Carib Beach Resort has a terrace overlooking Lindbergh Bay or the resort gardens. Rooms are recently renovated in a sunny, island inspired canary yellow. Rooms include flat-screen TVs, coffee maker and hair dryer. Guests who need more space than a typical hotel room enjoy the secluded cottages which are steps away from the pool and bay.

Features
The newly renovated Best Western Carib Beach Resort is steps away from Lindbergh Bay, where guests enjoy a variety of water-based activities (guests have complimentary access to non-motorized water toys from the resort's sister property the Emerald Beach Resort). Rooms are sunny and spacious, with views of the resort gardens or of Lindbergh Bay. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at Fajitas, an on-site restaurant.

Weekend Getaway

Worst experience ever. We were a group of four friends planning the perfect vacation for a weekend. When we arrived at the airport it was walking distance (don't take a cab). The room was almost clean except for the bathroom and the air condition was not working the first night. There is no beach at all and the closer one is not pretty. We spend the next two days taking cabs and planning what to do in other islands. So, if you are planning to relax and have a nice time close to the beach don't go there.

One Night Rental

Made reservation for two rooms, two months ahead of visit. Check in time was 3PM, we arrived at 1:25, let them know we were there. We were told to return around 3:30 - 4:00 and room would be ready. At 4:30 we returned and were told room almost done, would be 10 minutes. At 5:10 approached desk and rude desk attendant could have cared less regarding our wait. We were polite, but stern asking when we could get into our room. No offer of a free drink, etc. was made during our wait, although this same attendant offered same to other people waiting. We also requested a roll-away since reservation was wrong, Never received the bed! Had to make other sleeping arrangements ourselves. Lady bartendar was however very nice and did a great job waiting on a full bar.

Caibe

The rooms were very comfortable and well received after 3 weeks on a boat. However, the partial ocean view was no such thing as it faced the airport side… no ocean insight! no elevator so be informed. Staff was ok, pool was a hike down stairs and the beach was a bulkhead. Not a bad experience, but will stay somewhere else if possible.

No Electronics!

Hotel was clean and conveniently located by the airport terminal. However, telephone didn't work, not even to the front desk. Major TV network channels (ABC, NBC, CBS) did not work. Could not get any news on the Olympics. Wi-fi didn't work, either. Balcony was nice, and restaurant & bar were very good.

Short term stay

Needed one night stay. At the airport. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Late check in was a snap. Restaurant was nice. Casual. Food was good. Not local fare. Restaurant staff was excellent. Service is slow but that's the way it goes. Not slow due to lack of ability. It's the islands. I can't say how it would be for a long stay but certainly was very accommodating for our circumstances.
