My boyfriend and I went to St. Thomas about a month ago and stayed at the Beachcomber for 3 days and the Marriott Frenchman's Reef for 2 days. We thought the Beachcomber hotel was just fine! Sure it's a little older but who cares?! It was quiet, quaint, clean and affordable. I read the reviews from this web site and took the advice and stayed here. (Thank you to everyone who gives their feedback! Very, very helpful.) We were happy! The only thing that I might mention was that the breakfast service was a tad bit slow ... but everyone and everything is slowed down on the island. So it was really no big deal. Also, we loved being able to walk right out onto the beach from our room. The beach was really nice and peaceful. I know my boyfriend initially had concerns about staying here because he wanted a more upscale hotel ... but after we arrived and settled in ... he was pleasantly surprised! It's literally right next to the airport, so needless to say, it was really easy to find. But really we didn't even really notice the planes, or if we did, we didn't get bothered by them. We were enjoying paradise! The staff was helpful too. The owner/manager spent 20 minutes drawing a map for us and explaining how to drive from the hotel to another location on the other side of the island, through the hills to where we wanted to go. (By the way, they don't go by street names there ... it's like "turn left at the fork, turn right at the bottom of the hill," etc.) More observations ... there were no bugs at all! Any where in the room! Didn't see one the whole time. So if we had to choose one over the other, the Beachcomber over the Marriott, we'd probably pick the Beachcomber. Believe it or not. Enjoy your vacation!! We absolutely loved every second of it!
