We've stayed in the Crystal Palace twice upon returning from charters in the BVI and have found it a great way to punctuate a great time with a relaxing overnight stay at one of St. Thomas's historic residences. Ronnie, the proprieter, has punctually fetched us from the ferry terminal upon our arrival and instantly made us feel welcome, and he corresponds with service to the airport at the end of the stay. The Palace is a historically resplendant home with large, clean rooms decorated in period furniture, and the veranda with its remarkable view of the Charlotte Amalie harbor is, by itself, worth the overnight price. Add the well stocked honor bar to the equation and you have one of my favorite places in the Caribbean. Ronnie is a compendium of information about St. Thomas, both past and present, and adds exponential charm to the Crystal Palace experience. I can't wait to return.
