We booked our stay through bookit.com. As we had never been to the USVI, we used maps to determine how close it was to some of the island's attractions. Tripadvisor reviews were largely favorable as well.
Pros: The resort has 3 pools, 2 restaurants, a fair amount of parking if you rent a car, on-site shuttle service to some local venues, on-site activities desk & supply store, WiFi, on-site kayak & snorkeling rentals, on-site sailing reservations & pick up, maid service every other day, beach towel exchange program at front desk, plenty of maintenance staff during working hours, night security, laundry area on-site, & a variety of rental choices with great views of Water Bay at most of the rental units. It is in close proximity to Sugar Bay, ferry to Cruz Bay, & the nightlife of Red Hook.
Cons: Like an earlier reviewer mentioned, one restaurant & pool was closed. Though we had a car, we heard another guest complain of not getting picked up at the local beach, Lindquist. The maid service is largely just a towel exchange program as we found she didn't clean the bath or sweep the tile floors unless we asked (which she didn't like). Our unit didn't have a safe at all & was the unit that was robbed only two weeks prior. The person manning the activities desk doesn't come on til 10am & even then is often busy with kayak rentals, so we had to wait over an hour to get service (messed up two of our mornings). The WiFi is only available at the reservations lobby, so we had to add a data plan so we could get online service in our room. We ended up researching/booking our activities ourselves. They do have a slow PC to print out airline boarding passes but it is NOT complimentary... at a rate of .50 per minute!
Tips: The units are all individually owned, so the best deals are through the owners directly. Try www.vrbo.com to locate available units. Each unit is stocked by the owner, so you may find some of the amenities you need or not. Also, the resort is quite large & rocky, so expect a lot of climbing/walking if you opt not to rent a car. And, though it's close to "town," it's not in walking distance. So, though the units all have kitchens, you'll have to pick up your supplies & food at a market. The only item they supply is toilet paper. The closest market is on Smith Bay Rd about a mile (past) north of the ferry.
