Rented a condo on VRBO that was excellent! Couldn't have asked for better accomodations! Super clean, super comfortable and lacked nothing. The beach here can be rocky at some entry points but the swimming area is easily accessible and large. The snorkeling in this bay is GREAT!!! The best actually in St. Thomas in my opinion. Especially if you go... More

Great place to visit with lots of things to do. Snorkeling was good especially around the point by the pool. I would recommend this for someone looking to relax and not be around the crowds. Paddle boarding was also fun. Nice marina next door if you want to visit other islands.

For me, this is the perfect type of vacation place. Nothing fancy. Just a one bedroom with a small kitchen and living room area. The perfect part...the location. Every morning you wake up to your own private patio which is on a beautiful beach with views of St John. To be able to walk one step off of your patio... More

we have been to st. Thomas before. Megan's bay beach delightful. But if you want to wake up and see and hear the waves breaking, walk out your patio door and see the sea shells, coral, Sapphire Beach is the ultimate. The views of St. John and BVI , breath taking!!! The pool is fine; I agree I don't care... More

This is a follow up of a review from June 2015. We were disappointed with our room accommodations - several issues were never addressed most importantly the patio door that would not open. At check out we asked for compensation and were told a manager would contact us. After a week long wait I finally contacted the manager myself who... More

I am specifically writing a review of the Sapphire Beach and Marina Resort. The beach very good/ fantastic, beautiful and the snorkeling directly from the beach is some of the best from a beach, in my opinion. We rented a ground floor unit directly from an owner through VRBO. Our unit was outstanding! Absolutely no complaints! However, the POOL IS... More

This was our first time with VRBO! Jeff and his wife were very accommodating! Sapphire Beach and resort was a beautiful place to stay! Close to Red Hook, steps away from the marina and just a boat ride to St John. The beach was gorgeous, the view was phenomenal! Highly recommend this condo to stay! Even includes a car rental!

After much research, we rented a condo through VRBO. The owner was great to work with and even provided a new crock pot when we asked if they had one. We were traveling with my self, my husband and teens 19 and 17. We were not looking for a property that had restaurants, and many other amenities. We were looking... More

Snorkeling was great despite the rough waters. I finally got to see a ray (manta)! Lots of colorful fish to be seen. Outside showers were awful, no inside. The facilities look like they are under renovations. Facilities are somewhat run down. Definitely take your water shoes or plan on going into water with fins on, which can be a challenge.... More
