I would stay here again and again, food very close by and beach at sapphire is spectacular! I stayed by the yacht basin and saw the days catches coming in. They are doing some remodelling and rebuilding the beach structures but are open for business.

As many people have mentioned go through VRBO, not through the actual resort. If you are wanting to beach bum around this probably isn't the best location. The view here is one of the best on St Thomas, but the only downfall is not much amenities on the 'resort'. Sapphire is less than a mile from Red Hook which is... More

We just returned from St. Thomas really enjoyed the island but stay away from Sapphire beach resort for now they are remodeling some of the buildings all we heard was jack hammers all day. Had nothing much to offer at this place. I wish I knew this before we went just trying to help the next person.

About the best thing I can say about this place was that is was affordable. The grounds were very run down, but our unit was not too bad. It was clean, and was equipped with satellite, flat screen tv's, fully stocked kitchen,etc. a little disappointing that wi-fi was not included, and we had to pay for it. The beach was... More

This was by far the worst place I have ever stayed. We arrived at 11:30 to check into our room. Since check in was at 3pm they said we werent allowed to technically check in so we asked if we could just leave our stuff in the room which they said was fine. While waiting in the office area for... More

Hi Kathy, I haven't looked at both yet, but to the first, which is a frequently-occurring testimony to the inferior services provided by the rental managers who ply their trade at SBRM, I would say something along the following lines. Dear Doublet_66, As a long-time owner at Sapphire Beach and as one that has experienced the pleasure of sharing this... More

We rented condo D207 through VRBO for 5 days/4 nights. The deciding factors were location & cost. SBR is conveniently located on the east end, close to the Red Hook ferry & restaurants. We originally planned on staying at the Marriott Frenchman because of the modern feel and ammenities but glad we didn't bc we rarely stayed onsite and saved... More

We booked last minute thru an owner on VRBO. Stayed 5 nights and had an awesome time. Renovations are being done on the property and the building we stayed in was already done. I knew to ask before I booked. The owner was really helpful and answered a lot of our concerns before we even arrived. I'd been reading so... More

If you've been reading many of the reviews for this resort, you're likely getting mixed results. Some love it, others not so much. I'll attempt to break it down a bit for you. What used to be a resort now seems to have been stratafied and most of the condos are privately owned. We rented directly from the owner through... More

Recently we completed a St Thomas vacation and had a great time. We rented D109 on VRBO. Great suite. The owner, Melanie, has done a wonderful job with the suite. It was newly remodeled and had everything we needed. The location is wonderful. It has direct access to the beach and great views of St. John. St Thomas has beautiful... More

We stayed at Sapphire Beach Resort in April for two weeks. We rented thru Homeaway directly with the owner. This is the only way to go, you actually see pictures of the condo you will be in so you know before you go. Our room was clean and well stocked with amenities. The beach was amazing, clean and gorgeous views.... More
