My wife and I had a two night stay at Blackbeards. We were heading for a week long stay in St. John. We were very satisified with our selection. The hotel is located downtown overlooking the harbor. We arrived from the airport after a short taxi ride. We were greeted by Michael the evening manager/bartender. He checked us in , showed us our room, he filled us in on the evening life on St. Thomas and safety issues.
We chilled and then met Michael at the bar. We observed a wonderful sunset to the West and drank a 6 flavored rum punch named " Michael's confusion". We chose to eat on property that evening. Menu is limited to grilled burgers, hot dogs etc.. Michael also was the grill cook....he explained he had five children and loved to grill. We had a wonderful time and we were later joined by two other couples at the bar.
The next day we took the self guided tour of the property and went to a locals beach that Michael had suggested on the eastend named Lindquist beach . It was INCREDIBLE.
Overall the entire staff was friendly and helpful . The property is well groomed and clean. Highly recommend. Thank you Blackbeards.
