We are at Sapphire unit E301 for two nights to extend our vacation--after a week in St. John we were spoiled and not sure what to expect. Booked this unit through the owner on vrbo and it is absolutely beautiful --completely remodeled, beautiful high end decor and great corner location.

Bottom line, very nice stay at Sapphire Beach Resort. The condo, unit #E207, is privately owned, so no contact with the resort front desk. Was a little worried about the resort based on the horror stories from other posts, but E207 was in great shape. Renovated kitchen, cable, wifi, fully equiped kitchen, updated bathroom. The view from the condo terrace... More

The pool bar and restaurant being closed is well documented on this site and elsewhere so it shouldn't have been a surprise. Not knowing which unit or who the party rented on I cannot comment on the condition of the unit. As always, please read the reviews before you book. More

Sapphire Beach is beautiful.. Snorkling right off the beach with sea turtles, a sting ray, and various colorful fish.There is a small place between Bldg B & C to get drinks and buy lunch but the great part is that when you stay there you can buy your own food and drink and just bring to the beach.

It is unfortunate that this guest had unresolved issues. It is true that if the unit is not managed by Antilles the front desk provides limited help. However, there should have been an on-site property manager to handle any problems. I do not know who owns this particular unit, but whoever it is should have someone there to take care... More

We booked Sapphire Village Resort, which is at the hillside. For some reason, they put us in a 'beach front villa'. Beach right outside the porch, no complaints for that! The room has a king size bed, a kitchen with pots, pans, utensils, plates, glasses, etc, basic but sufficient cookware to prepare your own meal. The room is a bit... More

We booked at Crystal Cove, but when we arrived, they put us in the Sapphire Beach Resort.

Wonderful review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation at Sapphire Beach. I would like to note one thing, however. Sam is a wonderful manager. He only manages some of the condos at Sapphire. To find a condo managed by him go to one of the for rent by owner sites. More
