Another delightful stay at Mafolie, this time for more than two weeks. Perched high above Charlotte Amalie in St. Thomas, USVI, you awaken at Mafolie to "another beautiful day in Paradise" , since the weather in St. Thomas at this time of year is absolutely superb and the location and view from the hotel are equally impressive. The large fresh water pool permits you to enjoy the early morning with a refreshing dip before breakfast (assuming that you want to wake up that early) and is also a wonderful way to break the day as you return from the beach or other activities mid-day or at the end of the day. There is a pool bar which serves light meals (hamburgers, salads, etc.) as well as a full array of tropical drinks from mid-day until the restaurant bar opens.
As a privately-owned hotel with an extremely helpful, friendly staff, it is hard to beat. We have stayed there twice now and been delighted both times. Guests enjoy a complimentary somewhat-more-than-continental breakfast (fruit, bagels, cereal, english muffins, coffee, juice, and some absolutely devastating cinnamon rolls), and the restaurant is one of the best on the island, enhanced further by the location and view.
As a boutique hotel, the rooms vary in size and amenities, but most enjoy the splendid view and all are air conditioned (although the hotel is high enough up the hill so that most nights it is not necessary to use the A/C).
Although, given our good experience last year, my wife and I knew that we would enjoy our stay, we were visiting with our two teenage sons, who had not been there before. They were delighted, cannot wait to return.
A couple of points. Although it is possible to get around the island using taxis, and although Mafolie runs shuttles to the beach and into town, I would recommend renting a car, which will greatly expand your ability to enjoy the whole island. Finally, realize that Mafolie is a high quality, modest-sized, family-run boutique hotel, and if you are looking for a large resort managed by one of the national hotel chains, then there are other alternatives for you.
