“Gets the job done”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

On our way to the BVI's we stayed at the Beachcomber. After landing at the airport, we headed over to the hotel, changed into our shorts and met our friends at the bar which is right on the water. We sat right there from 3:00 PM until closing! Great way to start the vacation. The bar staff was friendly, the drinks were great and you can't beat the view. We also had dinner and the food was just okay. We had a room in the older part of the hotel. The room itself was pretty bad. Very thin walls. On one side of me I could hear someone snoring most of the night. On the other side, someone was coughing most of the night. But again, the view was great and we were right on the beach. At then end of our vacation, we came back for one night. This time we got a room in a newer part of the hotel. This room was much cleaner. However, there are no elevators and our room was on the 2nd floor. It wasn't fun carrying our luggage up stairs. Also keep in mind this place is right next to the airport. During the day it can be very noisy. I would come back though and overall I would recommend the Beachcomber.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the newer section.

My family stayed at this property last weekend (3-23-13) and were horrified upon seeing this room. It was dirty, the carpets filthy and worn. We took a shower with our flip flops on, fearing the worse. The Best Western to the left of this property is wonderful. We had dinner there and I would highly recommend it. At a cost of $199.00, we felt cheated. The beach in front of the hotel is beautiful. Since we could not find a room and with air travel the next morning, we did end a fabulous vacation on a sour note. I would suggest the Blue Beard Castle in town or the Best Western next door.

We stayed for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The beach is beautiful and felt like it was our private beach. Many times we were the only ones in the water. The rooms are dated and ordinary but hey I just slept there and it was entirely adequate for that purpose. Not luxury living by any means but if you're spending a lot of time in your room go to Iowa. The gardens maintained by Dencil were spectacular and he eloquently explained the many plants and even his gardening methods. The staff was very friendly Barbara, Silka, Shakira, Petronella, Dawn, Devon, Dean. The restaurant was quite good and had a variety of dishes. Rode the dollar trolley into Charlotte Amalie, walked to the airport and nearby grocery market. The planes don't fly at night and not all that frequently in the day. Not an issue. Housekeeping is excellent and the rooms were clean. Shower was just adequate. If you want a relatively economical vacation it can be done here. We hope to return.

We stayed with a group of 8 of us at the island beachcomber (2 rooms). The staff was outstanding, the resort very pretty. Rooms leave something to be desired, but who cares, you're supposed to be on the beach anyway! The airport noise wasn't an issue and we enjoyed watching the planes leave. There were no late night flights so no issues waking us up. The beach is beautiful, the breakfast outstanding. The bar drinks were'nt that great though, very little alcohol and just didn't taste very good. However lunch was yummy! Note that the double rooms are double beds, I call them "slim jims" because if you're not skinny you'll want separate beds, the hubbs kept "butting" me off the other side. They should also upgrade the pillows, they were pancakes. Again, perfect for one or two nights, the positives of the staff, beach and restaurant far outweigh the old bathrooms and slim jim beds. We'll be back later this year, and for the reasonable room rates we will gladly stay again!

Room Tip: No elevators, so if you have issues with stairs request a lower level room.

I am SAD to read in the Virgin Island Daily News 2/21/2013 that negotiation are underway for a take over of the Beachcomber. I have been vacationing at the hotel since 1985. Staff has always been very accommodating. Who could ask for a nicer beach. True the rooms weren't "fancy", but mine was always clean. I liked it because of its island charm. Its a part of the islands history. What a shame it will probably be tunred into just another fancy place to stay. With out the island charm or friendlyness. Well at least I can have my great memories, of the great staff and the Resch family.

When we arrived our rooms weren't ready, they lost the reservation for one of our two rooms so I was forced to share with the person I had to travel with. The door to the room looked like it had been kicked in. So close to the runway at the airport, every time a plane landed my headboard shook. Roaches in our room were big enough to steal the soap from the shower. Beach on the property was nice. Never again.
