Ryan, Kelcie and Will led our group on a really fun and interesting night kayak trip right from the dock at the Marriott Frenchmen's Reef. There was a lot to see - fish of all sizes! - and the lighted kayaks were just cool! We highly recommend this trip!

I left my Beats headphones by the pool and the staff found them. I met Joan from security and she was GREAT! Wonderful pool and amazing views! We've sat by the pool for the past few days and have enjoyed every minute. We've eaten at most of the hotel restaurants and have been pleased. We also haven taken taxis into... More

There were around 75 couples in our group and the hotel was able to manage everyone very well. This is not an "all-inclusive" hotel, but the travel agent worked out a deal for an all-inclusive package. The staff gave different messages regarding what was covered/not covered - but all in all for something not routinely done they did well. We... More

Yvonne got us towels daily and kept the citrus water fresh. The maids were also so helpful and sweet, willing to help with anything. Service for anything and everything was amazing! Thank you for such a wonderful time!

For a 4.5 star hotel it needs a lot of work. Chosen since the weather in northeast cancelled flights and the ritz Carlton wanted another 1800 from us for 2 additional nights.... Floors and bathrooms need to be completely overhauled, as well as noisy ac. Beach strap chairs showing lots of wear. Setting is beautiful and Havana Blue for dinner... More

I loved the hotel it was clean and beautiful but I wish the food menu had more options . I have ocean view and it was simply gorgeous. Drinks were watered down and over priced . But I'll give it 4 stars and recommend

Look no further than St Thomas for an easy trip to a property with great amenities for all ages. Easy access to other parts of the island. Great jewelry shopping. We spent a wonderful day hiking on St. John and hanging out at Honeymoon Beach. Extraordinary!
