I am finishing up a two night stay here. Overall it is a nice hotel to spend a few days and relax. It is not posh or super luxurious but has beautiful views! The hotel is about 30mins from the airport. The buildings itself aren't all that attractive and sort of smushed into the small cove. The check in process was easy and they were very welcoming and kind. My room is pretty average for a ritz but with a great view. The bathroom isn't huge and not a great shower (poor water pressure) but good enough. I have a large balcony that is covered. The pool area is very nice with an infinity edge that looks out to the ocean and you look at St. John. The beach itself is very small and way, way too crowded with chairs and beach stuff, very commercial. The shades attached to the chairs totally distract and block the view of the beach. I did use the paddleboard which was fun, but you definitely don't feel like you are in a remote location !! The people here are nice/friendly IF you smile and make the effort first. They aren't bending over backwards except for the sunset cruise that leaves from the beach and lasts 1.5 hours. Patrick and his crew were super helpful and great. For 80$ you have an open bar and heavy appetizers. The two main restaurants for dinner were good, not outstanding our super creative menus. The breakfast buffet was smaller than most Ritz hotels or places such as Half Moon in Jamaica.
I have had a nice relaxing weekend, and while the hotel has great views it is not on par with newer hotels like the Rosewood Mayakoba where everything was gleaming and beautiful!
