“As if paradise wasn't enough...the service was amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Beautiful landscaping, lush tropical grounds. View of beach only if you are on the 3rd or 4th floor of buildings--otherwise the pool is a gorgeous view (we had room C-133). Really tame iguanas love to hang out at the pool or eat sea grapes on the beach (they were pretty neat).
Most important--The staff was so wonderful! My husband and I first had a room with construction noises (they were renovating bldg. L) that were disruptive; when we requested a new room Tiffany (front office) personally drove us around to several other rooms until we found one with the perfect view, feel, and environment. She went out of her way to make us feel at home and we really appreciated it. She sent a car to help us move to the new room, and even called us later that week to check up on us! She was also so helpful in pointing out places to visit/eat on the island and would call ahead and make reservations without even asking her. Another young woman at the font desk, Benji, lended us a phone charge cord for the week when we forgot ours, and was such a pleasure to talk with....Between Tiffany and Benji, they made our stay wonderful and memorable. Thank you, Ladies!

Room Tip: Bring mosquito repellent. All balconies have a ceiling (for shade) except the top floors (beware of...

I've stayed here a few times before over the past ten years...they have done some outstanding renovations to their rooms. The staff is incredibly thoughtful as well. I'm here by myself for a week and though I've actually lived on the island before, the lovely women who checked me in offered to move me from a remote corner of the resort to a room closer to the guest center when she thought I would feel safer at night since I'm here alone. It was a very sweet gesture and the room is beautiful. It's my first day, but so far it has well exceeded both my expectations and past experiences. :). Thanks Wyndham!

Some of these reviews are bogus.... The resort is nice as far as I'm concerned. the issue that I had was w/the smell of the room when we got there it wasn't stink but smelled like it had been closed off w/o fresh air in awhile. The room was clean, comfortable and nice place to come and relax after being in the tropical heat all day. I had no noisy air conditioner, Leaky water, loud fans or any of the other complains that some "Critics" have had.The stairs are manageable if your used to walking "But the whole island is one big mountain" so no matter where you go you will either be walking up an incline or stairwell. The beach was clean comfortable and calming w/the sound of the shore. I just wish that their was some kind of entertainment like a live band on the beach w/maybe a night or two w/ some beachside BBQ'n .........other than that I would go back in a heartbeat........

We exchanged a timeshare for this resort. I always say you have to take the good reports with the bad. Some people want perfection and pampering. If you want this, do not stay at a timeshare.

I only have two bad things to report 1) it took us 2 hours to find it - they need to send you better directions. Just look for the Lattitude 18 sign and keep going. I kept calling and she kept saying "Come to me" and I said "I would love to come to you, but I can't find you". Anyway we made it and never forgot where it was after that. 2) They did not have clean beach towels everyday to exchange, you had to go back in the morning or when they came in.

That is all of the bad things I can say for the place. We had a hotel style room in the building when you enter the property - not much parking up top and had to park on the next level. When we did this there were 55 steps up to the front of our building and then up one flight and down two to enter our condo. Sucks to carry luggage, but when your in paradise who cares. Just practice doing stairs before you go. Our room was very clean and our view was nice. We did not live in our unit, just slept, ate some meals, showered and sat on our deck. We only went to the beach here on our last day. There is so much to see and do on the island that we really did not stay in the room much. The pool is nice and the location is great. We do plan to come back to the island and will stay at this resort if it is available. The beds are really as comfortable as everyone says they are. Enjoy.

Room Tip: We stayed in the W building, nice view but lots of stairs.

always a wonderful time at the Elysian. People are so nice and very helpful. Ms Vicki is a warm and lovely woman. She is the Heart of everything at the Elysian. When you arrive she is there to help with anything you need and when you leave she makes you feel like your leaving your home away from home. i am not sure what some of the people are complaining about. why don't they just stay at the Ritz Carlton next door if they are so unhappy. pool is great. there is a beach and two restaurants also. the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. cant wait for next year.

We have had a fixed week timeshare unit for close to 15 years. We have seen this resort rise and fall after sales to different owners. Most of the time our unit(s) fared better than others as it was used for shows to prospective owners-but the service and the amenities sagged all around us. Since Wyndham bought this property it has gone through a major overhaul and is better than ever! The pro pictures on the website are outdated-all the furniture seems to have been replaced. Fixtures and decor are updated and/or renewed. It is very clean and each kitchen (granite counters, tile backsplash) is fully equipped. They have replaced the rackety old A/C units with some whisper quiet ones that work sooo much better The view from the upper units is phenomenal. Yes, it is a "hike" to the beach and pool- but why not rent a car to get to this East End resort-save a fortune in taxis and drive to the beach if you like. The website mentions a fitness center, sorry, this is not true...OK Wyndham..are you addressing this? Also free wifi is only available in lobby- these few things keeps me from an excellent rating. The staff is friendly and helpful. The East End is so close and has lots of restaurants & stuff the do at night-a lot safer here than going downtown. Take the Horizon sail cruise, go to Coki & Sapphire beaches and St John-short drives to all. ( Take car ferry to ST John) The restaurants are great. We look forward to this little piece of paradise now each year.

Room Tip: Rent a car with a GPS.

To get to the resort don't use the hotels address in your GPS . You will be sent to the wrong place. GPS the Ritz up the hill and you will get better directions. The hotel is very clean and the food in the on site restaurants is very good. They have snorkel gear and some water toys for rental, but honestly for what they charge for renting a snorkel kit you are better off bringing one with you . The beach is RIGHT there you don't have to trek at all and they provide fresh beach towels as often as you want. Be prepared for iguanas especially around the pool. They love to sunbathe too! They mostly ignore the humans so don't worry.

Our only "complaint" is the room while clean was not as pretty as the rooms pictured on the website and the kitchen was not well equipped. Now in the hotel's defense most people don't come to a resort to cook their own meals. But we travel as a family on a budget and eating out 3 times a day for 4 people for 7 days just was not affordable. The grocery store was pretty close and easy to find. (but expect to pay double to triple for everything vs your at home grocery pricing)

the wifi however was terrible for us. the island seems to support AT&T more and there is still a pretty poor signal most of the time. This kept the kids off facebook for a week though so that was not exactly horrible to us parents.

Best thing...the beds! Loved the mattress and pillows. I actually slept well every night!
