Room Overlooking the Ocean

Would recommend Tue, Dec 29, 2015
Very nice resort in an excellent location. We were first in a beachfront room, within walking to the beach. After one night we moved to the Main building, 5th floor overlooking the pool and the ocean. Usually we like staying farther away, but it was a quiet week and the view was stunning every morning and beautiful sunsets at night from our balcony. Because of lots of rain for weeks prior to our vacation, mosquitos were terrible so the beachfront room had too many mosquitoes eating us alive, as well as the outdoor restaurants. The main pool is very nice, spent some time here. We ate dinner one night at the Aqua Terra Oceanfront Grill and I had one of the best New York Strips I have ever tasted anywhere - outstanding! Most mornings we ate a bagel and drank a coffee/Mocha Latte from the deli in the store off the lobby. We rented a jeep and explored a bit of the Island. Our best meal was at Pesce Italian in Red Hook - excellent menu choices - the food was almost as good as some of our meals in Italy! Another favorite was the Smoking Rooster, in the shopping area where the cruiseships come in. We ate there twice since the food was so good and bought one of their T-shirts which they do not display - we had to ask if they had shirts. We did the Turtle Cove Snorkel trip on the CAT, which left from our resort and it was a lot of fun - saw large tortoises, a couple stingrays, and lots of fish and coral. Great crew on the CAT. Spent some time shopping - best deals on St Thomas for jewelry. Only problem was everything shuts down in the evening. Stores and bars are only open during the day when the cruise ships are docked. Great weather, great resort, great vacation!

Excellent Honeymoon

Would recommend Sat, Dec 26, 2015
The location is amazing! Overall, the staff was very kind & helpful. The only complaint is the $45/day resort fee. As much as you pay per night, this fee should be waived or included in the price. Beaches were clean, grounds were well-kept.

Beach Trip

Would recommend Thu, Dec 17, 2015
Overall, our stay was good. We were upgraded to the morning star resort, which was nice. The room was not very quiet though. It sounded like people were going to fall through our ceiling. The walls are very thin, so I lowered the score from comfort. A couple of our towels were not very well cleaned, which was gross. The staff was nice and polite. Overall, it was an ok experience.

Great family vacation

Would recommend Fri, Nov 6, 2015
This was our second stay in less than 2 years. We loved it both times. Great property in a convenient location. My only disappointment was the difference in the upkeep of the pool area between my 2 stays. Every morning on both trips, I chose to enjoy my coffee early by the pool. In May of 2014, I was happily accompanied by the hotel staff of 2-3 men busily working to get things ready for the day. They meticulously rearranged every pool chaise and pillow and umbrella. I was so impressed with the detail they took in all of pool areas. Trash or garments, that were left behind from the night before. an empty cup, etc. However, this trip last week, was a bit different. The cabanas need a major overhaul and reupholstering. I didn't even want to sit in them, they were stain covered, ripped and gross. Every morning while enjoying my coffee, I didn't see one Marriot employee doing any clean up of the pool area from the night before. The chairs stayed the mess they were left in. Some chairs had no pillows and other chairs had 3 pillows. And they stayed that way all day, or until a guest moved things around. A big disappointment to me. Each morning I thought would be different, however I was wrong. Trash, clothes and disarray prevailed. New pool furniture all around, is a necessity. Other than that the vacation was nice. Restaurant prices are still through the roof though..... Tough to find meals for kids.

Fantastic way to treat my family to a vacation!!

Would recommend Wed, Nov 4, 2015
I purchased a vacation to St. Thomas to celebrate my mother's 50th birthday and we were very pleased with our stay. Often time I find that pictures and reviews don't hold up to what they portray, but I must say that this hotel exceeded far and beyond all of my expectations. The staff were always extremely pleasant, the view from our room was amazing, the food in all of the restaurants was delicious, and the room was always cleaned and restocked in a timely manner. I have zero complaints about this place, it was an absolute paradise. My family will definitely be coming back here if we ever make our way back to St. Thomas.

Wonderful business trip

Would recommend Mon, Nov 2, 2015
My stay at the hotel for the Head Start Conference was very good. My accomodations were great and I found the staff to be very pleasant and willing to help at all costs. We had a problem with our bathroom door closing and once the maintenance staff came and addressed the problem, there were no more issues.

Need more variety in menus

Would recommend Fri, Oct 30, 2015
We booked for seven days and there was not enough edible menu items available for the prices charged. Admittedly, both my husband and I have stomach issues with spicy foods so that did limit our choices. Still, you can only eat so many $18.00 cheeseburgers no matter how good they are.
