The apartment A-13 is big and comfortable. It accommodates 4 adults comfortably. There is space for 2 more on an inflatable bed if willing to share the area of the murphy bed. It smelled a little bit musty. Steps from the beach, that is beautiful. Some light fixtures were not working appropriately. Overall a good experience.

My husband and I had the opportunity to spend a month at Steve and Honey’s lovely condo at Sapphire Beach Condos West Crystal Cove. We had all the creature comforts we needed except for a dishwasher and we really didn’t miss having one all that much. We arrived to find it fully stocked with everything except the groceries we would... More

Alexandra and I were very pleased with your condo accommodations in B-11, and have praised it to everyone! We enjoyed being so close to the beach that had such warm, inviting water. The owner's information was very detailed and made things go more easily and comfortably. We enjoyed the restaurants in the area and the day trip to St. John.... More

We were stuck in B-3. OMG, It had a rundown 1950's south Florida, roadside motel feel, not a CONDO at all. Very ugly and outdated. Needs a lot of repair. The sofa is filthy, the beds springy and lumpy. I woke up with the worst back ache I have had in a long time. Kitchen has cookware almost as old... More

The location to the beach was nice, but that is the only positive thing I can say about it. The room and furnishings are nasty and dirty - they all need a very thorough cleaning. Do yourself a favor and just book somewhere else.

We spent 6 days at the Crystal Cove Beach Resort Condos. I read lots of reviews and had mixed feelings about picking this place. After getting there, I would say that the condos are not fancy. They meet your basic needs. The outside grounds are gorgeous, and the beach is the VERY best one on St. Thomas. We stayed in... More

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
