One side of the resort appears to be individually owned condominiums and the other side is resort owned rooms --- by the pool and ocean front. The condos appear to be hit or miss, because some of the rooms looked really nice from the outside and people seemed to be content. However, our room was outdated and not as clean... More

Just came back and I have to say be careful if you stay here. We booked a room with a king bed and a safe, two important things we go for, and when we were taken to our room, it had a queen bed and no safe, even though the front desk said there was one, after running back an... More

The walls are decorated with art everywhere you look. It was very nice having the washer and dryer. The cloths line and hose out back... More

The grounds are beautiful. Beautiful flowers everywhere. The beach is spectacular. Beautiful blue water. They have breach chairs to use while you're at the beach. I was told the five shop should be opening in a week, so that will help regarding bathrooms, fresh water showers and amenities.

We traveled with friends who were staying at Sapphire Beach Resort, a five minute beach walk from Crystal Cove. By far we had the best sandy beach. We spent the days on our beach which was truly amazing. Always a breeze, the snorkeling right from the beach was outstanding. Saw sea turtles, rays, tons of fish, beautiful coral, barracuda, starfish.... More

I recommend this property if you really want to get a feel for the VI, unlike a secluded resort this property was close to the nearby... More

We purchased a Groupon for a 6 day, 5 night stay and were very pleased! The condos are perfectly situated on Sapphire Beach and about a mile away from "downtown" Red Hook and the ferry station. This means that you have quick access to a nice, calm beach that doesn't get too much traffic and a quick, convenient ride downtown... More

3 years ago my husband and I stayed with friends at a condo here owned by their family and had a great time so when I saw the deal on Groupon, I decided it would be our vacation spot this year. I knew we wouldn't be able to get the same privately owned condo but when I booked our trip... More
