We had family staying at the Marriott (less than 1 minute drive by car) and we were looking for something a bit quieter. Marbella was perfect. They only have 4 rooms and we rarely saw the other guests. We stayed in the Frenchman's Bay View Loft which had a private patio that opened right up to the pool and the... More

Our family vacation in the Virgin Islands (U.S. and BVI) lasted over a week, but the highlight of our trip were the few days we stayed at Villa Marbella. The owners picked us up, rented us vehicles, showed us the ins and outs of driving in St. Thomas, gave great recommendations for food/activities, and treated us like long lost friends.... More

This is our second time to Villa Marbella Suites. The Virgins Islands are spectacular. So I am sure we will be back and will stay at Villa Marbella Suites again! The rooms are quite affordable for you to use the Villa as a home base when you go island hopping. We go to St. John a lot and we return... More

Thank you so much for the great review! We are so glad that you chose to return to Villa Marbella for both the Frenchman's Bay loft and our cozy Mango room! We do try to reduce the 'carbon footprint too" by having the guests use the towels a couple times before washing, but if they want them changed every day... More

My boyfriend Jay and I came to St Thomas for 4 nights and were so happy we chose to stay at Villa Marbella. The room: We stayed in the Mountainside View Loft and it was perfect.

We spent four nights in the Mountiainside View Loft and had a very nice time. The owners maintain a separate jeep rental business and the vehicle we rented from them was in perfect condition. The narrow, sometimes steep, roads to the property were not always easy to navigate but the jeep made it in fine form and the GPS we... More

Just returned from a 5-day stay in the Mango room with my best friend. The room was small but clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The size didn’t matter because we spent the days exploring the island. The location is serene with a beautiful view to wake up to. It was a little difficult finding taxis that would drive... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in March in one of the loft suites. The air conditioning was insufficient for the 2 levels. The upper loft area was never comfortable. The kitchen area consisted of a mini fridge with a microwave and hot plate on top and a small cabinet with a coffee maker and toaster. Very odd. The local... More

My husband and I returned to Villa Marbella in mid-March for a winter respite and, once again, had a thoroughly delightful stay thanks to proprietors Leah and Gunner Watson and their beautiful guest house. We stayed in the Cruzan suite - a comfy, roomy space with a small kitchenette [refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, sink, propane stove] - and a small... More

The Villa was located just close enough and away enough to everything we needed! We were lulled to sleep by the waves of the ocean and the tradewinds kept us in just the right termperature.
