My wife and I go to the Caribbean every October for our anniversary and we were excited to visit the USVI. We started our vacation in St Thomas and decided to stay at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef property. Approaching 700 nights in Marriott's and being a platinum member, Marriott's determine our lodging. I will start off by saying that the... More

I had an event at this hotel in July. They failed to mention when you book the room that you have to pay $100 incidental charge for each night that you're staying. Of course they refund this but make sure you have enough money in your bank account. We had a room block for our guests. At least 4 of... More

By far the best poolside service on the island. Relaxing, fun environment. Waitresses Alex D and Deirdre S make the stay at Marriott even better! Friendly, inviting, caring service 100% of the time. Amazing teamwork with these two girls.

I traveled to St. Thomas for the first time from October 7-13 with my two friends for a birthday celebration. We stayed in the Frenchman's Reef portion of the hotel. On arrival we were greeted with Rum Punch, cookies, and friendly suggestions about local places to eat and things to do. The check in process for us was very quick... More

Stayed just one night at the Morningstar portion of the resort en route to another island. What is good about the resort is the grounds are pretty nice, the views are fabulous, the Morningstar rooms are ocean front (mostly, more on that later). We had breakfast at one of the restaurants in the main hotel and it was excellent with... More

St Thomas is a beautiful destination & this hotel is in a beautiful location. Facility looks worn and everything (carpets, pools, walkways, rooms & especially the fitness center) need a face lift or totally re-done (a surprise for a Marriott). Sidonne @ the front desk & Deirdre (waitress) @ the pool went out of their way to provide great service... More

This year, we stayed at the Morningstar rooms at this resort. The rooms here are not refurbished, but they are clean. During our stay, there was a hurricane watch. The hotel... More
