The condo was very tired and old. The Kitchen needed to be destroyed and made knew. The dishwasher was rusted and nasty. The porch was nice. The best part of the condo. Where the condo was situated there was a strong wind all the time. Sitting out at the beach was uncomfortable because of the wind. We went to other... More

We rented this place for a week. When we arrived it was at 11:00 at night in the dark. After not being able to find the place (NO signs anywhere), we tried phoning them many times. No answer. We drove around most of the night asking everyone we could where it was!!. We finally got ahold of them finally around... More

Thank you for your review. In the Virgin Islands, transportation from the airport is serviced by the VI Taxi association only. Shuttle busses from individual hotels are not allowed in general. It is so that our small island does not offer much in the way of road signs and our terrain is quite hilly. Unfortunately, we did not receive your... More

This place was in a nice location in Cowpet Bay. The beach wasn't great for lounging and swimming. Boats crowded the bay almost all the way up to the beach. The rooms were clean. Plenty of towels and we got lucky with the room location. We were on the first floor about 40 feet from the beach ! :) The... More

My husband made a booking by telephone with Exclusive Resorts VI. A man named Corlis took the reservation. Having given him our credit card details, we received a confirmation by email which showed a room rate of $150 a night, plus 10% tax and 10% resort fee (for some reason charged for one day) for a total of $345 for...

I;ve stayed here twice. The first time we had an upper floor which includes a huge loft. For the islands, this place is a good value for your money. They are clean and roomy. The beach here is just ok, a little more rocky than most but also nice because there isn't anyone else there. we didn't use the pool... More

I had a confirmed reservation on line and by phone with deposits only to be called three weeks later and told that there was no room. No real solution was given other than staying at other properties miles away from where I wanted to be. Obviously there is no communication in their system between the reservations and actual availability. I... More

This is not a hotel resort, but rather a combination of resident owners and vacation rentals. The pool was never crowded, so we had it to ourselves most of the time. The ocean floor is rocky and the beach is swept clean every day, so would explore other beaches for swimming and hanging out in the water. But you cannot... More

Didn't like the Anchorage customer service. The condos are in a gated community. This created issues getting in and out of the property. If by chance someone was coming out of the gate when we were coming in, cabs were hesitant to enter the property for fear they would get stuck in the property until someone with a code or... More

Spent 7 days here with immediate family (3 "kids" 16, 19, 23). A little confusion initially because we had to check in at Sapphire Bay resorts, but actually ran into the property maintenance man, who was really nice and offered his cell # in case we had any issues. The property was quiet and private -- clean kitchen, living room,... More
