“Outstanding view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Our yacht broker recommended this hotel and we are glad she did. It's a small and quaint hotel perched high over the harbor. We stayed in four different rooms and all had great views. This is an older building and it shows some age but we prefer to think of it as character. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The drinks at the bar are great and inexpensive and the bar tender was really fun to talk with. Pool is great and it has the view too!

I have no problem recommending this hotel for anyone that values the view over a new looking room.

I stayed the Mafolie during Memorial Day week, and it was great. The first thing you notice is the view. Its really just about the best I saw on the island all week. The restaurant and bar has the same view. Its probably only one of many reasons the bar seemed to be hoppin' most of the nights I was there -- not just with tourists, but also alot of locals in the hospitality industry who had heard good things about the place.

Staff was very friendly and polite, especially the restaurant/bar staff. The room was clean and was cleaned thoroughly ever day. The pool was clean, and the food and drink were delicious and reasonably priced.

I'm a fan, and I'll be back.

This place is worth the trip for the view and the food in the restaurant. Both are outstanding. There is not a better view on the island. Staff was extra friendly and helpful. We had interactions with four different people and they were all interesting and friendly. But this hotel is schizophrenic. The property is In desperate need of maintenance and repair. Rotting deck boards on out terrace bordered on dangerous. Sheets were not clean. Our windows wouldn't close. If you are security conscious this isn't your hotel because of the proximity to the street. We had a problem with a drunk guest in the middle of the night. No hot water. Ever. Pool area was messy and unkempt. Included breakfast was limited. We did speak with the manager on duty about a couple of things and were comped a dinner which was outstanding.

But did I mention the view? If you are adventurous, it is worth going for the view.

Spent one night at the Mafolie while on a St thomas/St. John excursion. We arrived early in the morning, special thanks to Lisa who gave us a room upgrade overlooking the harbor..Stunning!!

Highly recommend using a taxi to get into town. We used Cornel Liston 340-690-0337
He was very reliable, great for airport transfers and excursions, very personable.

The Mafolie was an overall great experience!!
If you get a chance go to St. John, see Trunk bay (top 10 beach in the world) or Magen's bay which is in St. thomas

After a fun week of sailing we stayed at the Mafolie for one night to semi recover. We chose it for the view, the pool and the restaurant reviews. On those points the hotel worked really well for us. On the other hand there were several things that took away from the experience.
In the bathroom the screen was missing from the window and you could not close it. At the restaurant we were seated late, we later found out they were trying to give us a better view, but the the wait staff was very slow to getting to us. Over a twenty minute wait. After we got someone they were attentive and the food was excellent!
Overall this hotel worked for us but with a little effort could really be good !

We had a great stay at the Mafolie Hotel. The service was great. The views are incredible from the rooms our group had. The group enjoyed the pool too! The rooms are eclectic and different which was different compared to traditional hotels. Though the hotel is not convenient to walking to downtown, the cost to get a taxi is small. The rooms were very comfortable. Highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Try to get a room that will have air conditioning for all areas. Some rooms have AC in the bedroom...
