The Sugar Beach condos are not in the best part of town, but they are a great price because of it. You'll need a car or have to rely on taxis if you want to get into Christiansted proper. Our condo was clean and well-supplied with rental basics (soaps, kitchen cleaners, beach chairs, linens, etc), and we really enjoyed the view out to the reef. The master bedroom was great and had a good master bath with walk-in shower. The other bedroom was a bit stuffy if you closed the door, so folks just left the door open. The condo is designed with enough hallway doors for privacy.
Sugar Beach is in the middle of a long strip of condo developments along a beach. The sand isn't superfine (certainly not sugar), and the water has a lot of sea grass which they constantly rake off the beach itself, but the snorkeling out to the tire reef is fantastic! There's always a nice breeze on the porch and you can hear the surf at night. Blissful.
Across the street on the backside of the property is the projects. Stay respectful of their space and you shouldn't have a problem; Sugar Beach also has night watchmen who walk the beach. There are also bars on all the windows, but truly, they do not impair the beach experience.
There's a decent club house with a computer and a very nice pool area. We had a few meals out there and it was fun. Right next door is another condo which has the restaurant Breezes, a good place to eat. You can walk west along the shore (wear rock shoes) and end up at Estate Little Princess, a Nature Conservancy spot that's a delight to explore.
Christiansted is a 7 minute car ride away. There are a number of grocery stores nearby; ask at the desk for the better ones to go to, depending on what you want.
