Visit

The hotel was okay! When I first arrived I had to switch rooms three times. Once because I requested a double-bed and got a king. Had to switch again because I went to a take a shower and the shower head was completely broken. Two days later, my sister found a strange bug on her pillow, and then I found one on mine. Daily room clean up is inconsistent. One day they'll come at 9am and the next they'll come at 5pm. However, besides that, the food at Caribbean Fusion was good. The view from the beach was very nice. I dont think I would recommend this hotel to anyone because the bad outweighed the good.

Nice little getaway

Very friendly environment and great staff. I chose to go with best western for the great price. The plus was that it had it's own private beach. The con was that it was so close to the airport so I constantly heard airplanes land and take off.

Beachfront, but not much of a resort

This is an older beachfront hotel, close to the airport, but not close to anything else. The beach is OK, but the hotel is dated. The bar and restaurant keep minimal hours. If you're looking for quiet, this might be for you. If you're looking for a real resort, this isn't it.

Great beach

The hotel had a great beach. It was about a five minute walk to catch the cheap taxis into town. Not a bad location.

Wonderful vacation!

We had a wonderful time on our vacation in St Thomas! For the most part we loved the Best Western Emerald Plus!!! The location is perfect! right on the gorgeous,sandy, calm Emerald Beach, easy to get into town without being in the middle of it, right by the airport, lots of nice beach chairs and umbrellas, boat rentals right on site and a restaurant although the food there is average & pricey and the service is terrible! (we ate a lunch and a couple dinners there because of the convenience of being on site. my advice is to order food from the bar as it is reasonably priced and came a little more quickly.) Other guests have complained about the airplanes flying over however we weren't bothered by it. they are loud but since it is a small airport they don't come and go at night, just occasionally throughout the day. As far as the room is concerned... the bed was average (My husband and I both have back/neck problems so we are pretty picky about mattresses and this was a bit on the hard side.) At a glance the room seemed clean enough but the floors were gritty and there were some cobwebs. but the bathroom and linens were perfect! There were no hand towels or washcloths in our room upon arrival and we had to ask twice then wait in the lobby at 10 p.m. while someone got us some from the laundry room. I was relieved that they were at least clean! It was like pulling teeth to get them to give us fresh ones throughout our entire stay but We did end up with them eventually and it was fine. Just a bit of a bother when you expect to have that taken care of for you. (They would take the ones we used and not replace them) On the other hand, the front desk staff was very friendly, helpful and apologetic. They gave us good advice on food, grocery stores, and even gave us some coupons for the sky safari. Don't miss Magen's Bay, Mermaid's Chair, or a trip to St John! Our favorite places to eat were Barefoot Buddha's, Hook line and Sinker, and the Pie Hole.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the local safari taxi. It only costs one dollar.
