Had 2 rooms for one night since we were staying the week at the Marriott timeshare next door. Booked utilizing points and we arrived at the resort about 1 1/2 hours before check-in. I did not expect the rooms to be ready with a 4 p.m. check-in but was surprised that one of the rooms was ready so we could... More

I actually stayed in the villas at the marriotts cove... But we used the pools at the reef and the Morningstar beach is 2x the size as the beach at the cove. Good restaurants especially Havana blue. Get a rum bucket from the infinity pool bar and thank me later!

Spent 5 days with my wife. I was disappointed by many aspects of the hotel. While the location, views, and rooms are quite nice, the service and dining experiences were a struggle to get through. A change of rooms took 40 min for the transaction (not including waiting for the new room to become available). The hotel is run as... More

We took the Costco vacation to US Virgin islands. We had an option to stay at multiple resorts but we chose the Marriott Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort. We got a free ride to the resort from the airport - it was part of the package. Upon arrival at the resort we were treated to some rum punch... More

This was one of the best trips I have ever taken and if it wasn't for the convenience of everything at the Marriott Frenchmen reef I probably would not have been able to do as many things that I did efficiently. My 5 year old who turned 6 during our stay was able to enjoy children activities everyday near the... More

We really enjoyed our visit. The hotel is lovely, with several different pools to swim at with their own style. When we did need service, we received it promptly, as in 15 minutes and they were in our room and then following up to make sure the staff had taken care of us. I really appreciated that kind of service!... More

I would have to say this was a great vacation spot. The place was spotless and the service was fabulous. The beach was great and the water was clear. AAA membership entitled me to free breakfast, which was great. The only advice I would give to Marriott would be to upgrade one of their restaurants' dinner menu to include steaks,... More

We stayed at Frenchman's Reef after a weeklong stay at the Westin St John. I don't generally write reviews, but I wanted it to be known how pleasantly surprised I was at the property and the staff. 1) Room: we had a harbor view suite and it was GINORMOUS. It was a pretty good value for the money, with nice... More

My wife, 16 mo old baby, and 25 year old niece stayed at Frenchman's Reef between 7/5-7/12 and had a most positive stay. Location: Great location close to Charlotte Amalie. We had a rental car and it only took about 5-10 minutes to get downtown and park depending on where we went. Parking onsite really was not an issue as... More
