I 'm sitting here trying not to go crazy as more snow heads our way. What's keeping me sane are the memories of several delightful nights at the Rumbar. The location can't be beat. After a day at the beach, there is no better place to sit and watch the sun set, the lights come on in Charlotte Amalie, and... More

This is our 10th visit in 10 years. We stayed for nine days and will never take for granted the beauty of St. Thomas. What better way to watch the ships coming and going than from your own room! This year our service was exceptional. Shirley who provided our housekeeping service each day was phenomenal, always friendly and going above... More

I recently stayed one night at this hotel prior to chartering a boat in St. Thomas. Our room was in the Morning Star part of the hotel. The location was very nice but the rooms were very small and needed refreshing. The tile grout was old and moldy. The AC unit was incredibly loud. The room was very dark and... More

Although , I love the hotel and resort area, the beach is beautiful, food and drinks good for a resort and the happy hours endless. (Be sure to take advantage of the happy hours.) I had such a hard time with customer service at the front desk. Upon arriving i waiting in a long line which was fine and somewhat... More

Spent a wonderful day at this resort by the pool & beach. A shout out to Deirdre who was our wonderful hostess by the pool and kept us hydrated. Great personality! And of course, not to be forgotten Little Switzerland located at this property. Picked up a wonderful bracelet for my birthday. Marriott always does everything first rate!

We had a great stay during Presidents' Day week...two families with three children. The pools were great, Havana Blue restaurant awesome, the rooms were just ok. We stayed in a harbor view suite which was spacious but somewhat dated. Our friends stayed in an ocean view room which appeared to have been more recently renovated than out suite. The little...

Based on the wide array of reviews I wasn't sure what to expect during our first time stay in St Thomas, but I'm happy to give a 4 star rating after spending 5 nights. We stayed at Morningstar, our reservation was for a gardenview room. After checking into the room we requested an upgrade to a beachfront room - it... More

My wife and I stayed at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef hotel during the week of President's Day 2015. That was a mistake. This is not a good week to go, and this year, probably because of the cold weather on the mainland, the resort was filled with families with screaming children. For in excess of $400 per night, having the... More

Checking back into the hotel and tryng to keep the same room started out to be a challenge. Antoinette Goner at the front desk made what started out as a very stressful situation for my family of...
