When i booked (at the recom of a friend) for one night, the owner picked me up from the ferry dock as he would be in the area at the time! Got to the hotel and it turns out to be the old governors mansion! When i get inside i am not let down as the decor is right out... More

Wonderful grand home in the old style. This is the only way to experience the real Caribbean. Very conveniently located, very friendly, classy people, easy to get to shopping, nightlife, safari taxis to the best beaches in the world, safe location.

I have stayed with Ronnie for several years as I travel to the BVI. I highly recommend this place and man what a view. Nothing like sitting on the deck with a rum and coke in your hand and watching the sun set over the Harbor. Airport pickup is a huge plus and there is a lot of breakfast options... More

This was our first visit to Crystal Palace. We stayed one night there before leaving for our charter in the BVIs. We felt like we were visiting old friends - spent hours sitting on the balcony - sipping rum from the 24-hour honor bar and chatting with Ronnie and the other guests while admiring the gorgeous view of the harbor....

What I loved most about St Thomas was my stay at Crystal Palace with Ron and a few guests. The views from the balcony are worth a million dollars, and Ronnie is a great host who opens up his home to so many strangers but makes them feel part of the house. Had a great time eating down in the... More

Staying with Ronnie Lockhart at the Crystal Palace is like having a home away from home in St. Thomas. It is comfortable, historic, conveniently located, relaxed, and we love feeling like natives when we are here. Ronnie knows everything there is to know about St. Thomas and if he doesn't he knows where to find out. Simply the best.

My wife and I had a great time! Ronnie was a great host, the rooms were gorgeous (the stuff of those pictures you see int he galleries), and the atmosphere was laid back. Free wifi, directions, reviews of Local restaurants and amusements were spot on. Treated like family. Can't choose a better place to stay!

Ronnie is the owner of the Crystal Palace and took very good care of us. We had no reservations coming on to the island, and not only did he have some rooms available, he helped us find rooms nearby when he didn't have availability at a nearby B&B. He picked us up from the airport and gave us his own... More

Ronnie made our 3 days at the Palace most enjoyable. He picked us up at the airport, drove us to one of his favorite restaurants and returned us to the airport when we checked out. We opted for a room with a private bath and were very pleased with everything, including the toiletries. It was unseasonably warm, so we didn't... More
