I set up this outing through the adventure center right here at the hotel prior to arrival. What a great time. I'm a novice at kayaking and this was so much fun. Nate and Clara made the experience great. They take you around the cove to see different sites at night. Fish, turtles, and reefs are beautiful. Must do in... More

It was REALLY all it was hyped up to be. Our idea of Paradise. Soft clean sandy beaches, gorgeous clear water, abundant food/beverages, ample activities. We could have easily stayed at the resort for the full 4 days, but as it was likely a once in a lifetime trip, we ventured out to the tourist stops. Magen Beach was beautiful,... More

We chose to be on the beach at the Morningstar Beach facility. If you want the big "hotel" feel then stay at the Fisherman's Reef facility. We wanted the relaxed island type of vacation and that's what we got. Our room was only 30 yards from the beach, the sound of the waves was very soothing at night. The room... More

THE GOOD Marriott got lucky in securing this property. The resort is perched high atop a cliff with 180 degree views. Dollar for dollar it is the best value of the larger resorts on St. Thomas. Amazing views! Great beach. Most of the towel attendants and those that are involved with getting me to sign up for a timeshare are... More

stayed at this resort for only one night, 2 days because we had to find a last night accommodation prior to leaving Caribbean. The common areas of this resort are gorgeous! Lots of restaurants to choose from and all very nice. The beach and pools are excellent. Our room was very small but adequate for a short stay....glad we didnt'... More

I had made a reservation months ago via the Marriott reservation line. I am also a frequent traveller with Marriott. A few days before arrival I receive an email from the hotel welcoming me but the room type mentioned in the email is wrong. I gave a confirmation email from Marriott with the room type I had asked for, yet... More

Location is very good. Great little ferry takes you to town. The hotel itself is dated. Needs painting. Our room smells musty. Some of this could be related to the weather conditions. The hotel room, lobby and grounds are clean. Staff friendly. Food is overpriced. Be ready to pay $18 for a hamburger. Views are beautiful. Good location to watch... More

Dear Marypaullong, Thank you for the choosing to stay with us.

The ferry drivers are very knowledgeable and make the trip extra fun. Did you have an opportunity to take a snorkel or dining tour... More
