First: Crystal Cove is NOT Sapphire Beach Resorts. The resort is next door and is incredibly crowded. Crystal Cove, on the other hand, is all condos and has a large grassy area with a salt marsh/pond in the middle and paths for walking/jogging. There is wildlife all around: iguanas, ducks, and an occasional chicken. The condos are not huge, but... More

My wife and I just returned from our 5th stay here in past 8 years. Placed a review last year but that's now at end of pack, so doing it again. Just read Grace M. of Colorado's review and it's obvious she stayed somewhere else - probably the Sapphire Bay Beach Resort next door. Crystal Cove is a group of... More

The beach is fantastic. I do not think there is a better beach on the island when you consider location, convenience, cleanliness and use. The times we spent on the week we were there were perfect. We stayed in D32 and it was comfortable and quiet. Two bath were the reason we chose it and Kathy then owner and Norma... More

We ended up arriving at B-11 via the beach side. Make sure you tell the taxi driver that you are staying at " Crystal Cove" Saphire Beach. We were taken there by one of the beach hostesses, we had that lost look about us. Norma was there finishing the cleaning and she showed us around the unit. It was very... More

Excellent place to relax. Beach is close and amazing. Snorkeling is excellent. Close to Red Hook so you can catch a ferry and go to other islands easily. We stayed at b-11 and it was very clean and nice. Our third stay and hope to have many more. St Thomas is easy to get around in a rental car. People... More

This resort was older and off the main grid but beautifully located. Beachfront. They reserved beachfront lounges for your entire stay so you never had to search for chairs on the beach. The restaurant was great. We ate there numerous times. The service was great and very entertaining. It needed some updates but not enough that it would keep us... More

The photos are not as they appear only the beach which is beautiful. The rooms at both properties are horrible. The furniture is outdated as well as the items for use in the kitchen areas. The bed in my unit B17 was not a real bed, the top mattress was not made for the foundation old and lumpy. The curtains... More

Just returned from a week in Crystal Cove with my wife. For this vacation, our top two qualifiers were seclusion and close proximity to the beach. Here is some info I wish I had known before we went. PROS: Crystal Cove is an older property. Each condo is used a a time share and also rented out for guest like... More

Another wonderful vacation at Crystal Cove Beach on Sapphire Bay in Unit B-11 from July 22nd to July 31st! The owners are truly great. The condo has everything you could need and the beach is truly awesome with the best snorkeling! This was our second time staying in B-11 and I'm sure we will be returning.
