One Night Stay
We had a early morning flight from St Thomas so we decided to stay here for one night. Experience was ok. We got to the hotel early and we were able to use the beach and the pool. We went to the beach. The guys at the bar were awesome. Drinks came out fast and tasty. Check in at 4 so we waited. When the room was ready we went up to change and got ready for dinner. Rooms are old. Some new items here and there. But can tell needs TLC. The hotel has 2 things going for them. The beach and location. That’s it. Only thing I was little Upset about was the employees didn’t tell people to wear a mask when they walked through the restaurant. Had many people go Back and forth with mask off while we were having dinner.

It was a good trip overall with family
The hotel was right on beach, but room was small for the price. If you are renting a car, just know that they drive on the left side of road. The hotel charged me twice in one day, which made $1,000 of my vacation funds inaccessible. I tried several times to get them to release the second payment, but no one knew how.

Great for overnight next to airport.
Beautiful beach, nice location to airport, super easy taxi service. Rooms are old and not the cleanest. Kudos to house cleaning for leaving us a can of bug spray in the bathroom(?)....

Dream Beach Vacation.
If you want a beach vacation this is the spot. Hotel is right on a beautiful sand beach. Lots of shade and lawnchair’s to enjoy the beach. Hotel is close to Charlotte Amelia, a simple six dollar cab fare per person or one dollar on the town taxi. Location right next to the airport makes it very convenient to come in in the afternoon and enjoy the beach the same day. The restaurant on premise was very good and had a wide selection of food for all three meals during the day. The bar sits directly on the beach and couldn’t be any nicer. Concierge, Michelle did an excellent job in arranging trips to enjoy the island.

Had the most amazing room with the view of the ocean and right on the beach - could hear the waves hitting against the beach- was so relaxing and beautiful. I will definitely stay there again

I can see how this resort can be appealing given that it’s on the water. However, it appears that the beach just next to the resort is access for public beach goers and they tend to take up space on the beach in front of resort. Random residents seem to roam the beach. I was not comfortable leaving any belongings on chairs while in the water. The restaurant on site has a nice view and staff were pleasant. I would not recommend the Mahi tacos or BLT . The bar tender in the outside bar was pleasant and helpful and the drinks were good. The coffee shop that was reported to open at 6am was not open. Our room was “dingy” and towels smelled. You can definitely tell that this resort is dated. I arrived to a ground floor room facing the beach and when I opened the curtains to let light in their was a group of people with chairs in a circle just in front of my patio. I understand that COVID has played a huge role everywhere and maybe this was not the best first impression of their resort. However, I feel that better monitoring of their beach resort and improvement in maintenance could help. The price of $400 a night for a room was also not worth it.
