“absolutely awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

we had the pleasure of staying at this hotel during our first visit to the Island, rooms were booked for us by promoter of an mma event . we got in a little late but mike jr got our rooms all lined up.rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, and the beach was probably the nicest i have ever been at and we travel alot, during our stay we enjoyed te beach the beach bar and ate several meals on the location ,all were top notch ..staff were amazing ,and being a family operated hotel we ended up meeting most of the whole family, these people took us in like we were part of the family. quiet location and had probably the best time we ever have on any vacation, family members even attended our event . i was amazed at how wewere treated and will be staying there every time we return to island.. I could go on all day... but all in all made new freinds and will talk about this trip as one of the most memorable. and would recomend that this is thee place to stay when vacationing or on business in st thomas...

I recently had the pleasure of staying at your hotel during a business trip to the island last Monday. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the evening. I had room 119, right next to the restaurant. Quiet, peaceful and beautiful setting. I especially appreciated the
absence of loud music. Where I live in Deerfield Beach, FL, any establishment on the beach has loud, live music. The sound of the waves splashing against the shore was soothing and delightful. Equally delightful was the service I received at the restaurant. I was Theresa's last guest for the evening. She provided excellent service and was a pleasure to sit and chat with over coffee after dinner. I look forward to future visits and will highly recommend Island Beachcomber to anyone with future plans for visiting St. Thomas.

Room Tip: Ask for beach front rooms. You get the best ambiance from the waves and it's close to the restau...

My boyfriend and i went to st. thomas and stayed at the beachcomber for a full week. initially we had only planned on staying for only 4 days but it was so great and the people who worked there were so nice and we felt incredibly at home! When we arrived, the girl at the front desk had a room ready for us and i reeaally wanted a room with a nice view of the beach and wanted to be as close as possible to it. With no problem at all she switched our room. The rooms are quaint and perfect for relaxing when you need to. Its like staying at a friends place. Its so comfortable and you feel free! You take a few steps out your door an boom theres the beach! its YOUR beach! At any time of the day or night you can go out for a swim or pass out on the beach and look up at the billion stars and no one will harass you! a few more steps and the bar is righhtt there. you quickly become friends with the staff and they dont treat you like any old tourist. If your an "upity" type of person and are looking to be part of the tourist crowd this may not be for you. if you want to go somewhere where you feel at home an have YOUR OWN beautiful beach and cute little room to relax and unwind and make quick stops at then this is for you. omg i CANT WAIT to go back!! The conch fritteres and the prime rib i got at the bar on the beach were deeeeelicious! Watching the sunset while in the chrystal clear water was amazing! Before we went, i read some reviews and got a bit nervous because people said they saw cockraoches..that was completely false, we didnt see not one bug. Well rob and i miss everyone there and the beach. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: If you want a better room just say it! :)

My husband and I stayed at this hotel while awaiting the birth of our grandchild who did not come while we were there but this is the absolutely most beautiful, friendly and warm place we have ever stayed. We have been to many different resorts but this small, family owned hotel was outstanding on all levels. The food was prepared perfectly every single meal we ate there. The service at both the restaurant and bar was incredible. No matter how busy they were we always felt we were the only people there. They always made sure we had what we needed but allowed us privacy as well. The rooms were quaint. They were not the most up to date I have seen but they were the most welcoming. I would not change one thing about this hotel.

Room Tip: Though located near the airport, so a bit of a taxi ride into town, the safety and privacy was so wo...

We have gone to this property several times when cruising, the bar staff is always very nice and the food in the restaurant good. They charge 6usd for the chairs and have some shade very close to the Crown pier and just a very nice beach day.

We were really. considering living in St Thomas after vacationing there. Everyone was very nice and the Beachcomer has been around more than 60 yes. It is quaint and laid back. We went back during Easter and the room staff gave me a tiny basket of shells. I would recommend Beachcomber to anyone!

A week ago, my family had the pleasure of staying at the Island Beachcomber once again. We have been staying there for years and always look forward to going back. It is like our “home away from home.” Over the years, we have come to know some of the staff and the folks that return year after year.

The staff is always very nice and full of good cheer. We love to find Denzel, the gardener, maintaining the beautiful grounds and listen to his knowledge of the local flora. Every morning we have a hearty breakfast served by a smiling and laughing Ms. Gigi (have to have the French toast!). After a morning on the beach, nothing is better than a “bucket of beer” and burger overlooking the bay served by “Chicago” or Dean.

In my opinion, IBC is located on the best beach in St. Thomas. However, some days passengers from cruise ships do visit the beach for the day, but this is usual. Denzel will always make sure that IBC visitors have their lounges.

IBC is not for the five star crowds. It is for those who want to experience the island the way it was before jumbo jets. The beachcomber is my favorite vacation destination and I hope it never loses its true personality.

Many thanks to Michael for a history lesson on the resort!!
