    Great place to stay on St. Thomas

    The beach at the Emerald Resort is outstanding!!! The staff are extremely friendly and the food was great!!! This was my second stay at the resort since the Hurricanes of 2017 and they are operating very efficiently. Also, the location is less than a mile from the airport.

    Ryan Brice hotel review

    This hotel requires a complete upgrade is all I can say and then the pricing would be ok - Terrible hotel experience - needs help. The staff was great however management needs to step up to the plate and renovate the hotel.

    Old Beat Up Motel

    I had to stay one night for business and I really regret the stay. The grounds are beat up. My room has a nice review but... only one towel, no toilet paper hold, dirty bathroom floor, bottom of door has a gap to let bugs in, dust everywhere, water stained shower faucets, ice machine extremely loud and no screen attached to the glass sliding door. Now I know why I only stay at Hilton properties. They have standards! For $254 for the night I feel violated. Disgusting and there will be no response from management. They only respond to positive reviews!!!

    No hot water. Service reps most uninterested. Did not fix and did not communicate. Told me to take a cold shower all 3 days. Said they changed the water heater - they did not! Even this review is hard to send! Says must be 200 characters! Do you not want to read it? Can someone not communicate more efficiently? In excusable!

    A mix of wonderful and not so great

    What you get at Emerald Beach: 1. A stunning ocean view from every room 2. Rooms that are literally rusty and very dirty around the edges but with random upgrades like a nice sink. 3. Staff that greats you with a smile and are very accommodating 4, chickens and roosters who will be your alarm clock at 4 am 😂 5. A restaurant that has a great selection and very yummy food 6. Oh, did I mention the view? So good and bad but mostly good. We only stayed here one night on our way to the BVIs. Saint Thomas has never been a favorite for us and with Saint John and the BVIs so close, we never stay long. FYI, Norhing to do with Emerald Bay, coming from the airport, Emerald Beach is almost walking distance if you don’t have heavy bags. The cab driver charged our family of four, each with one bag, $45 for the three minute ride. 🙄 Saint Thomas needs some regulation with taxis.
