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!

Emerald Bay Beach Not Resort Hotel
DAVIRE4650, Colchester, United Kingdom
Sat Feb 16 08:35:58 EST 2019
This was our 3rd visit from our cruise ship. It is such a shame as the rustic bar and attached hotel have been severely damaged in the hurricane. Your taxi will take you to Emerald Beach Resort. Walk through to beach and walk to the right for 300 yards towards the WaterSki School. Isaiah is still there sorting out sunbeds umbrellas and selling his jewellery in a comparatively quiet peaceful area. As the beach bar is no more he has cold drinks in his icebox. He was pleased to see us and thanked us for our support. Beach and swimming are excellent. This is not for those seeking luxury but it is much more traditional experience. There is food available at the Emerald Beach resort but we did not bother. Just have a big breakfast on the cruise ship!!

Really bad, stay away !

As part of our trip to the US Virgin Islands, we had a 6-night stay at the Emerald Resort Beach Hotel. It was a really bad experience. No help to bring suitcases up to the third-floor (no elevator). In our room, the TV did not work, the phone was 'dead', the safe-box could neither open or close, half of the window right curtain hanged, one of the sliding-door of the cabinet was out of the rail, so the cabinet could only open 20 cms so we could not hang our clothes. The water in the bathroom went from cold to very hot without warning and could not be regulated, one day the toilet was stocked, one day we did not have water at all for several hours the other days the water pressure was very low... The Reception staff was not helpful at all, no apology at all and the standard answer was 'I'll let the maintenance team know' and then nothing happened. The cabinet sliding door was repaired after 2 days, the toilet was fixed same day, a TV remote-control was provided after 2 days but could only be used to switch channels, turning TV on and off had to be done by pressing a button on the back of the TV. Telephone and safe-box were not fixed, neither were the water temperature and pressure problems. There was no Breakfast buffet as advertised, the staff answer was 'there is not enough people', we never found out whether 'not enough people' meant 'not enough guests' or 'not enough staff'? Service was poor and slow, limited a-la-carte choices, bacon missing two days in a row on the 'American breakfast' plate, pricing too high for what we got. Cleaning of staircase (building 3) and other areas was very poor. It is close to the Airport, very noisy. We will never return!

Nice staff needs updates
Thu Feb 14 04:43:02 EST 2019
The staff were very friendly at the resort however the rooms are in need of update and the pricing at the restaurant was a little over-the-top. The beach is absolutely beautiful. We will look at other spots however the next time that we are on the island

Resort showing it's age
Wed Feb 13 04:41:53 EST 2019
Our room was clean but very dated. Water regulator went extreme hot to cold without warning and tub wouldn't drain. Floor felt sandy - Be careful @ beach area - all of us ended up with Sand Flea bites on arms and legs

Great staff, beautiful beach

The beach is absolutely gorgeous and the staffs there are very kind. Ishani was primarily responsible for our stay there and she deserves a s/o for her excellent service and professionalisms. Definitely would go back there again in the future with my family!
