Great time and well worth the money. Tour guides were very good and we got to see turtles, stingrays and several fish. Guides made the trip and kept it fun. I would recommend putti this on your to do list while in St Thomas

We have been going to the Virgin Islands for many years now, mostly sailing in the BVI’s, and so after our catamaran trip this year we decided to stay at the Marriott.

My wife and I plus my son's family of 3 stayed 5 nights beginning Sunday 12 March in adjoining water-view balcony rooms, on the fifth floor of the main hotel. The views were spectacular by day and night. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable, and this is a big deal in the Caribbean - the A/C kept...

We had more than a little apprehension about our vacation at this Marriott based on some of the reviews we'd read on TA: bad yet expensive food, moldy rooms, poor service. But our stay was quite the opposite. Our room wasn't moldy or smelled mildewy, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Amazing service. We were just overwhelmed by the kindness...
