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

Recently returned from a stay here and had an amazing time. The views from the unit's balconies were incredible, probably the best of anywhere I've vacationed! So nice to wake up, make a coffee, and stroll outside to nab a good beach spot. The unit was very clean and had nicely updated bathrooms and kitchen. The condo also came equipped... More

We just returned from yet another visit to Sapphire Beach. We've been coming here for 3 years now. Why would we go anywhere else when perfection is right here. Most important piece of advise as I read other TripAdvisor reviews...RENT FROM AN OWNER!!!! Go thru VRBO or Homeaway. Of course the beach is St Thomas' best for snorkeling and sunning.... More

We checked in late on a Wednesday every thing was nice, clean and as promised. The safe did not work. The queen size bed was comfortable. We stocked the refrigerator and made ice. The kitchen had almost every gadget needed as well as dishes, pots n pans. Plenty of towels and a blow dryer. Our unit even had a couple... More

1st night we came in late. Taxi dropped us with 4 kids & said lobby was open, no mention that after dragging luggage and kids around for 20 minutes that lobby was closed for renovations & was now located in one of the rooms. So our start was disconcerting to say the least. 1st full day was disappointing, without a... More

We rented a condo from VRBO.COM so we knew what to expect with Sapphire and the condo. We stayed in building E, which is on rocky beach, but has best views and more privacy. There is no restaurant but there is a food truck at top of hill, burger/hot dog stand open during day between buildings, and very close to... More

They were renovating the outside building, painting and redoing the decks. The room is nice and clean, furnished , just needed a little bit of updating . Worth the money, I wouldn't spend more than $200 a night, basically it's a place where it's A no-frills place to stay, it's not your Ritz Carlton. It's a place where you just... More
