Walked up the 99 steps to get here, got my exercise for the day. We skipped the tour and stopped for lunch and picture taking. Good place to get a burger and have a drink.
This place is lovely and while off the beaten track is only minutes from downtown Charlotte Amalie. Beautiful grounds. A place to dine, or fine lodging. I have only eaten there. Recently reopened, it is very appealing and I was surprised at the reasonable prices for drinks and food. The food was very good. Both outdoor and indoor bars/seating. A... More
Billed as the Williamsburg of St. Thomas, it has some interesting historic attractions and some very knowledgeable docents. However, to compare this to Williamsburg is a bit of a stretch.
We stopped here before leaving town. We weren't on a cruise. But the other 100's were. Tour consists of listening to a animated fellow talk about Blackbeard for 10 minutes (in front of a Blackbeard statue). Then a little history lesson from a nice lady in front of the tower. Then, 8 people at a time can walk to the... More
It is a bit of a climb to get there, especially after walking in town all day. However, the views are awesone. The hotel seems like a nice place - you can see the tower on the hill from the port. The staff was polite, and we were not requested to pay any fees. It was later in the day,... More

Best restaurant around, impeccable service and beautiful food, a must to go to if you are in the area!!!
Joshua, the bartender was great. Had a few drinks & some delicious appetizers while admiring the view of Charlotte Amalie below
A good stop for your $ whether you take a tour or do it on your own. Many interesting sights and things to see on the property. There are also many sights around this place within walking distance that should hold any ones interest. One of the better stops in St. Thomas for historical "lore".
My family and I visited Blackbeard's Castle as part of an excursion from Princess Cruises. It is a fun little place with interesting things to look at, but seemed awkward as it is also a hotel. We just walked through it and headed downtown to do some shopping. Beautiful grounds, but not worth a return trip unless you want to... More
