I read some of the negative reviews that were quite unrealistic, like roosters waking them up, or poor water pressue, or no early check in availabe. Seriously? If you are not really ready for a island vacation, book yourself a nice room near Busch Gardens and stay in the states. You are going to have chickens roaming, poor water pressure... More

Great Staff, nice rooms, nice and clean, only opinion is that the restaurant doesn't have lots of options in food for dinner, i think they changed menus,,, not a whole lot of caribbean food. All in all, just great.

The hotel is super close to the airport. You could walk if you don't have heavy bags (otherwise take a ridiculously overpriced cab ride). The property is older and not particularly well maintained. Staff are polite. The rooms look out onto the splendid beach the hotel sits on. The bar and restaurant are open air adjacent to the beach, which... More

We were upgraded to this hotel on our arrival at the airport, being informed that the original hotel that we booked had been seriously damaged by the recent hurricane. That hurricane did us a great favour. The view from our balcony was one we could have only dreamed of. The cleanliness of the large room and spacious en suite could... More

Made another trip to St Thomas for business and pleasure-lovely as always! While this location is farther from town, it is on the beach, quiet nice amenities and an easy cab ride anywhere you want to go. Easy to jump in their pool, or the ocean. Sit by the bar with a drink and watch the sunset! Hotel staff are... More

An all around average hotel. Location: Near the airport (walkable if you're just toting carry-on luggage). This is a cab/taxi ride away from just about everything, so be prepared. Room: Slightly dated, but clean. Our room was towards the far end which seemed to be a bit quieter. Dining: Overpriced and average at best. The service was not bad per-se,... More

Internet is throughout the property and in the rooms, all rooms look onto the water or beach. There is a little fitness room and a restaurant and bar that serves a greeat breakfast. Best of all the hotel... More

I stayed at the Marriott Frenchman's Cove in St. Thomas for the front-end stopover of my trip to Virgin Gorda, so that is the (rather high) bar that was set for my St. Thomas hotel experience. I stayed at the Best Western Emerald Beach for my back-end stopover in St. Thomas because it was closer to the airport. At the... More

I had a great stay at the Emerald Beach Resort. The hotel is located directly on the beach and only a few miles from the downtown shopping area.

The location is beautiful, the bar and wait staff are first rate. When we checked in, they gave us a room that was occupied, which was very awkward and unsettling. We were then put in a room where the shower handle was broken. No big deal but for the price, you really expect things to work. The water pressure was... More
