After a great charter sailboat vacation we had a few days to spend in St Thomas and chose the Best Western Carib Beach hotel. Loved it. It isn't a five-star, but is is definitely a comfortable place to stay. We had a clean room, comfy bed, great air conditioning and a balcony/patio overlooking the pool and the bay beyond. The...

We needed an air conditioner, a shower and a bed at the end of our bareboat charter, and this hotel fit the bill. This property is reasonably priced, and walking distance to the airport. The grounds are nice, with a lovely view of a bay from the bar/restaurant, pool and man made beach. The rooms themselves were the drawback: the... More

Great place to spend a single night for a St John vacation when your flight arrives too late or leaves too early and you must spend a night on St Thomas. Is literally just steps from the airport. Nice oceanfront location. Rooms are typical Best Western, with a dash of third world deferred maintenance. Beds are too hard, but no... More

Carib Beach Resort would not have been my first choice for a St. Thomas stay, but when our flight was delayed due to a aircraft malfunction, our family was looking for a room for the night. We quickly reserved the room on the Best Western website, but did not know from the reservation that we would not only be paying... More

Missed flight home and had to stay over night. This hotel is across the street from STT Airport 3 minute walk and The rate was low. The staff were nice. The property is older and I agree with other reviewer that it was probably a great location years ago. Never the less it served our need well for our 1... More

We booked this hotel as a package rate for our honeymoon through priceline, we saw that there was an upgrade option for a corner room with a garden and ocean view so we chose that and were very excited to enjoy our stay. We checked in on a Tuesday afternoon around 4:30pm, check in is supposed to be at 4pm,... More

A much older hotel that in its day I'm sure it was quite nice. However, by today's standards it leaves a lot to be desired. Water pressure in the shower was just a drip and it took forever to rinse off. I did have a nice view of the bay tho and was able to get some nice photos of... More

Thank you for both reviewing and staying with us at Carib Beach Resort. It sounds like you have a lovely time on our island and enjoyed its beauty and the many other things St. Thomas has to offer. Carib Beach Resort was built in the early 1940’s originally as a military hospital. While converting it into a hotel years ago,... More

This hotel has recently been renovated as I found over my weekend stay. They also have a new chef and the food is delicious. It is not the Ritz-Carlton but I didnt want to pay for the Ritz Carlton. Remember to say Good Morning and Good afternoon and you will get a warmer island experience.

Thank you Terri for reviewing us! Like you said, our hotel has been recently renovated with updated appliances and furniture. Our new restaurant, Oceanside Bistro, and chef, Maura, are awesome and her new menu has really kicked Oceanside Bistro up a notch! Also, thank you for the island tip!

Low quality hotel. Long delay to get rooms cleaned, at 4pm in the afternoon. Not much of a 'resort' small pool and very small 'beach.' Restaurant was just ok. Best thing about it is free shuttle to Best Western Emerald Bay. You can also walk to a public park and beach (200 yards) for a little more space. Don't be... More

Just because it's close to the airport, don't take the bait. Cabs don't want to go there to or from the airport. It looked as if doors had been kicked in. Bathroom was gross. Not a place to stay even if for only 12 hours. We were going sailing the next day and needed a place to stay for the... More
