Harmony Studios comprise twelve fully equipped cottages (in six two-story buildings) overlooking the Maho Bay Campground eco resort. The units, while far from luxurious, offer all the basic housekeeping amenities at a very reasonable price. They also afford (particularly the second floor units) some of the finest views anywhere in the Caribbean. During the day you overlook the ocean and... More

Well, read all the reviews and figure out where you fall in the categories of folks who've stayed here. We chose to stay in the Harmony Studios rather than the tent cabins, all here at Maho Bay Campground, based on Trip Advisor reviews. We are a couple, both just 60, who have traveled a lot and all around, and not... More

We went on our second half of our honeymoon here, and came well prepared after a stop at the grocery store before the ferry ride. Loved cooking in the studios, had all the plates, bowl, pans, pots, and utensils we could need. The one thing we could NOT have prepared for was the HEAT in our studio. It was mid-October,... More

The good: Their dinner service was a bit like summer camp with few choices and high price tags but somehow fun. Their store options for snacks is really good. I have never tasted a better homemade banana chocolate chip muffin. They have a "recycle your stuff" area for things you don't need or can't bring back on the plane. You... More

St. John and the extensive U.S National Park that covers the island is a beautiful place for a vacation. The island of St. John lacks the cheap tourist shops and traffic of St. Thomas. St. John’s beaches, environment and history make for a great vacation….something for everyone. However the Harmony Studios are not all that this New York City based... More

Just got back from a stay at Maho Bay's Harmony Studios and would not recommend unless you are prepared with your own food and drinks and also like cleaning your own room (sweeping, garbage, linen removal etc). We arrived by taxi and was expecting the beach cafe would be open for a burger or whatever but it had been closed... More

Although we stayed here over two years ago, we remember the good and not so good times on St. John, and Harmony Studios was definitely the low point of our trip. After 4 beautiful but austere days at the National Park (cabin #8) at Cinnamon Bay, we were ready for a little luxury. Unfortunately we were disappointed from the start.... More

My friend and I absolutely loved Harmony. We had a drop dead view from our studio that felt like we were flying over the Caribbean. The highlight of our trip was hiking in to Waterlemon Cay early Sunday morning to snorkel with the sea turtles. They are beautiful, quiet creatures who put up with visitors. The National Park is not... More

This review comes from a 55-year old father and two daughters ages 21 and 16. We stayed in a studio (H3-A) primarily because I wanted the best view possible. The higher you are up on the hill, the better. The studio is not a tent cabin--it has a normal roof and walls and windows. The tent cabins (and they far... More

The Maho Bay experience really suited us, but it's important to know what you're getting into before choosing this "resort". Staying at Harmony Studios is billed as "luxury" by the resort, but although comfortable, it's actually borderline "rustic". Overall, Maho Bay-Harmony Studios is rather similar to staying at rustic cabins that one finds in may US and state parks in... More
