Perfect for our trip!
Mar 12 2016
We had a great trip to St Thomas! Emerald Beach is very close and convenient to the airport, easy check in, on the beach with a beverage 15 minutes after we grabbed our luggage. The staff was professional and welcoming. All the rooms are beachfront. The " Blue Flag" designated beach is beautiful and was not crowded til the big cruise ships docked mid week. The beaches in St Thomas are all public and Emerald Beach is close by for the cruisers seeking a day on the sand. The facilities were clean, though ocassionally a bit worn. Taxis readily available ....~$6/person to town, ~$10-15/person to Red Hook for charters. Never wished we had rented car. This isn't the Ritz but we didn't want to pay Ritz prices. Excellent value for the price point. Will definitely stay here again.

First retirement vacation
Jun 23 2014
I only have a couple of complaints. Having arrived in early afternoon our check-in time was not until 4:00 pm. Although the food in the restaurant was good it was rather pricey. Other than that we had a very pleasant stay.

Everyone at the hotel were very nice and helpful. The hotel was very old but updating some, room was clean but would have loved a microwave. No beach activities, they could have done so much more, music, waiters at the beach and pool would have been perfect. Around the beach needs cleaning up a bit, junkie looking. Sunday people invaded the beach and pool arean that were not staying there, we were told that to outsiders chairs were &$7 but was not practiced. Hotel is very convenient to shopping,etc.

Stay at Best Western Emerald Beach
Mar 27 2014
We just returned from our vacation and had a wonderful time. The view from the hotel room was beautiful. The room was very nice and roomy and there were plenty of electric outlets, closet space and sinks. There were only two minor problems which were addressed immediately. The food in the restaurant was very good and we enjoyed the open air seating. there were plenty of lounges and umbrellas on the beach and at the pool.

Would recomend Emerald Beach Resort to others!
Aug 02 2011
All the rooms had beautiful ocean view. No waves, warm ocean water, sandy beaches without rocks! No elevators, but liked being on the second floor, for privacy and safety. The resort was not fancy/sofisticated but we were comfortable. Free WiFi and free internet available to guests .Beachcomber restaurant next to our resort good food! We were worried because the airport is located across from the resort. Airport closes at 7:00 and a handful of planes land and depart. Room was comfortable, radio alarm clock in room, a small refrigerator and two luggage racks! Clean beach towels were not always available. Resort was not fancy/sofisticated but we were comfortable. Tropical Tour Staff was punctual and friendly!

Had stayed here a few times in 2016 and was a bit wary to come back based on some reviews I read prior to my trip. Needless to say, I needn’t have worried! Yes. St Thomas as a whole has been through a momentous trial but to see this hotel again, back to form, warms my heart. Rooms and amenities are exactly what I expected. But the most important part are the smiles on every staff members’ face. So glad to be back!

Great beach

I am retired Navy 33 years, traveled the world, and was stationed in Puerto Rico and I would take trips from Puerto Rico to St Thomas for 11 years. My daughter was accepted into the University of the Virgin Islands for Graduate school for Marine Biology Environmental. She had just graduated Virginia Wesleyan University with a Bio Degree May 2018 and accepted in UVI April 2018 with a UVI report date of Aug 2018. I went to AAA letting them know we needed a hotel hopefully close to UVI. AAA booked us with Emerald Beach Resort. Being military I called to insure they had our reservations, our room balcony over looked the beach, etc. As I was told all the rooms have a balcony looking over the beach and water, which is true, perfect view of the beach and ocean, day and night. The staff before we came was outstanding and we got there they were kind helpful, truly ready to go the extra mile. Since my daughter would be at UVI St Thomas the next two years we were asking for a lot the Emerald resort Staff information, looking for apts, restaurants, grocery’s stores, transportation, medical, pharmacy, sailing instructors they went above and beyond to help us, so patient, and knowledgeable. They also have a sister hotel (Lindbergh Bay Villas) for extended stays for a month or over that is as beautiful as the Emerald beach resort with shuttle bus between the two of them, Both have paradise restaurants, pool, souvenir store, beautiful beach and water. The rooms are outstanding, modern, have everything you need the balcony right on the beach is a dream. The hotel is close to the St Thomas airport, you wouldn’t even realize it, but it is perfect for arriving and departing. The taxi drivers are right there, very nice, respectful, ask for Roy he was the greatest. The price is so reasonable, for the beautiful resort you are in. My true grateful thanks to the Emerald Beach resort staff Ama B, Sharene G, Shance W.and Nadine Matthews, and all the staff for their true care and concern, making our trip a cherished memory, with my highest recommendation. Since my daughter will be at UVI the next 2 years, we will be definitely staying at Emerald beach Resort hotel. I have told my Military friends, family across the US , and my City Of Norfolk co-workers about Emerald beach resort, all of us will be coming to stay there to visit my daughter Seleena. I have also told AAA to make sure they refer visitors going to St Thomas to stay the Emerald beach Resort hotel it is 5 star hotel all the way around!!

We stayed the night before we took the Ferry over to Tortola and it was a pain carrying all the luggage up 3 flights of stairs. There are no elevators here. The bed was hard as a Fred Flintstone bed! The hotel though was very clean and seemed like it was put back together well after the hurricanes. The staff was very pleasant. We had reservations for the night after our charter and this time we requested a ground floor room. The bed was much better but the door would not lock. Maintenance was there immediately to fix the problem. It is very close to the airport and convenient. The pool was nice and the food was good. Its a little pricey but if you figure in a taxi ride to town it works out the same or a little cheaper. We would stay here again. The views are beautiful and nice beach.
