We booked a very last minute stay to use some of our vacation club points. This resort was wonderful, and every staff member was very friendly. We had a beautiful and comfortable room (2 BR Villa) with a perfect view of the water with cruise ships arriving and leaving. Loved the pool area, where chaise lounges and umbrellas were plentiful and very comfy. There is only one restaurant and bar open on the property, but we enjoyed all the food and beverages we had. The Beach area was a bit rocky, and could use more sand (I think we heard that is in the works), but the water was perfect and we spent a good deal of time on the floating mats admiring the view. It was a relaxing vacation. We left the resort once for Coki Beach, and also took the water taxi to Charlotte Amalie. The island is obviously still recovering from the devastating storms, and we saw quite a few homes with tarps on the roof. We did not rent a car, as there were only the two of us and we knew we would be at resort most of the time. We did pre arrange a taxi ride with Carol (340-643-5837). She was prompt, a good driver, and very informative about the island and recovery efforts. If you have an opportunity to visit, you should go. This beautiful island needs visitors to return and support all the businesses, and the Marriott has provided a wonderful place to stay. A side note....but nice to hear...we’re the stories from the resort employees of how well Marriott took care of them during and after the storm. We will visit again!
First, I’m a regular visitor of both St Thomas and the Marriott Cove, as an owner. This is the first major resort to reopen post the dual hurricane wallop of 2017. Fortunately, the Cove was built to code to withstand this type of event. Like many Cove owners and regulars, we want to help the area recover. Many businesses have reopened. Cruise ship traffic is still way down, so there is much less traffic. The staff are so happy to see visitors return. Many have worked at the Cove for many years, so they’re like family. The adjacent Marriott Reef hotel didn’t fare as well and won’t reopen for another 1-2 yrs. The Cove units are 2 and 3 bedroom condos, outfitted with flat screen TVs, fully equipped kitchens, washer/dryer, and balconies. The units are comfortable for couples and families. Onsite there is a large pool, hot tub/spa, fitness center, kids club program, market/sundries store and restaurant. The restaurant offers good food, but a fairly limited menu, in a casual open air atmosphere. There are concierges onsite to help with dinner reservations offsite, and recommendations. There is also a charter group by the pool to book offsite activities like day cruises/snorkeling trips, and an evening sail for example. The water taxi stops at the pier several times a day to run you into downtown Charlotte Amalie for shopping and dining. There are daily activities onsite, as well. There is music most evenings. The beach has kayaks and paddle boards to use. The beach has coral so you need to enter the water over by the pier if barefoot. There is excellent snorkeling off the beach over to the right. I go scuba diving daily when there. Most dive outfitters will provide round trip transfers. I recommend Aqua Marine who is over near Red Hook. Over on the other side of the island in French Town there is Admiralty. That will get you to a variety of sites. It’s a very pleasant place to spend a couples or family vacation. I highly recommend it.
I know that my words alone can't express the gratitude I have for finding you. Your face is all I can see in times of stress and worry, while I have been slow to see and hear I know you. G-d=Love, Family, Community,And Honesty that you are a good G-d 🙏 thank you for the wonderful trip
We never wanted to leave! The Marriott did a wonderful job! Every single staff member is beyond nice! The resort is so clean and beautiful. The pool is so much fun my 4 year old spent everyday all day in the pool and on the water slide. The beach is right there with private access and there are pads out in the warm crystal clear water. They have lots of activities throughout the day where you can win prizes and the restaurant has really good food. We can’t wait to return!!
We stayed here in a three bedroom unit in the Crown building for eight nights. We stayed at end of March, 2018. I want to add that the resort is absolutely beautiful. About a 15 min ride from the airport in our rental car for a party of 6. Check in was in the Crown building which made it very easy for us to go our room below. They have a market place express there in the building where we got complimentary ice cream which was much appreciated. We had assistance with our luggage and even when I got groceries they took it out of the car and delivered it to our room. The room was huge 3 bedroom, three full bathrooms, over looking the ocean. The beds were very comfortable and the unit was very well maintained and very well stocked. The unit had two balconies. I The whole family got to relax in the unit. The pool is about a 4 minute walk and you have through go 2 buildings to get there, no big deal. The grounds were immaculate despite the hurricane the staff did a great job. The pool was fantastic huge and the pool chairs were plenty. They always had kid activities so my daughters were busy always along with pool movie night. Market place by the pool and bar. Market place had some great ice cream and a vast selection of necessities. All in all a five star resort with a five star staff. Would go back in a heart beat.
The Frenchmen’s Cove is a lovely resort. The staff has worked tirelessly to get the resort reopened after the 2 cat 5 hurricanes in 2017. They are still working on a few things but the resort is beautiful. The rooms are well appointed, the pool is great. They have cleaned the beach up but they are still waiting for approval to re-sand. There are a lot of activities going on daily. The staff is friendly. Please support this resort and this island. Visit St Thomas you will not be disappointed!
Real nice place. They did a real great job recovering from the storms. Right now you get the added bonus of being one of the few on the the island. Beach was beautiful, pool area is nice. Lots of things for kids. Bar and restaurant were working well. Staff was wonderful. ST. Thomas is open folks. Take advantage!
Stayed the last full week of March, 2018. The resort looks great, our villa had an amazing view, and the Cove was as we remembered. Everyone there had a story to tell regarding the hurricanes and recovery, but all were happy to have visitors return. St. Thomas shows the scars of Irma and Maria, but everything is coming back, and we had yet another wonderful week at the Cove. Restaurants: Pie Whole, Hook Line & Sinker, Mim's, Iggies Oasis (at Bolongo Bay), Mafolie, Smoking Rooster, and Greengo's (St. John) all get 5/5 stars from me. They should all be as you remember, with the exception of Iggies, but don't let that stop you from eating there anyway, especially after a morning of diving. Speaking of which... Diving: St. Thomas Dive Club is now back up and running and we couldn't have had a better experience. Mareika & Adam took care of us on each dive and were both professional and very kind. Greg was an excellent captain, too, and if you're considering diving during your trip (as you should!), absolutely give them a call. Plus when you're done you can grab lunch at Iggies. One last recommendation: Abi Beach Bar on a Sunday, but take a cab - drivers are waiting at the entrance to the Cove and didn't have any problem dropping us off and picking us back up. Frenchman's Cove has a great pool, comfortable rooms, wifi that worked, caring employees, and wonderful views. Much of St. Thomas is back up and running, and the island progressing every day. Go. You'll be glad you did.
Beautiful resort. Super clean rooms and pool. Beach is amazing with blue blue waters. The friendliest staff - everyone is so nice and helpful. Lots on the island still closed due to the hurricane but we still had an amazing time! Will definitely be back.
All the beaches were quiet, it was easy to get reservations at great restaurants and even St. John snorkeling was perfect and pristine! The resort was perfect, the water was crystal clear and we had great weather. We even had a great horseback ride along the beach!
