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.

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.

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.

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!

Overall I was very unimpressed with this property. I travel regularly for both work and pleasure and to say I was underwhelmed would be putting it mildly. The overall grounds are in need of an update. The rooms are very dated and while they appeared to be clean, it was hard to get past some of the wear and tear that was evident. Running water in the guest rooms was hit or miss. While, the resort did reduce our room rate due to the lack of water our last evening and morning we checked out, nothing will change the overall impression of this resort. One positive note - the beach bar was a pleasant escape from spending time in our room.

Don’t stay here

I had stayed here twice previously and enjoyed it, so I brought five friends and recommended that we stay here. We paid $300 per night per room, and it was probably worth $150 per night. It is badly in need of repairs and refurbishment. Stay at Olga’s Fancy instead - it’s about half the price, convenient, and much nicer! Pros: -Great and friendly check-in staff -Oceanfront rooms -Nice beach -Has a restaurant and bar -10-15 min walk to the airport (basically the only reason you might want to stay here) Cons: -Rooms falling apart - they look like they were just pieced and taped together -Water temperature fluctuates between scalding hot and ice cold -They were doing construction while we were there, so the sound of the ocean waves was drowned out by drilling and hammering -AC was broken -There wasn’t a light in the shower

Mostly miss

Hit or miss? In our case, mostly miss. Great location right on the beach but crummy room on the third floor — and no elevator, no porter. Biggest complaint — either no water pressure or cold showers. Grounds are not well cared for, dirty walks and stairs. Be prepared to wait a few hours to check in.
