“Great beach resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Secret Harbour is a great, secluded beach resort in the Red Hook area of St. Thomas, USVI. It is away from the hustle and busyness of Charlotte Amalie. It is only a few minutes from the grocery, restaurants and bars of the east end, and the ferry to St. John and the BVIs. The hotel is very well run and both the restaurant and beach bar are totally brand new with excellent food and drink offering and super service. The small bay offers the best snorkeling on the island, in my opinion. And there is a dive shop on-site with it's own dive boat for those wanting a diving excursion. And, for other water activities, the American Yacht Harbor in Red Hook is only minutes away. You should strongly consider Secret Harbour Beach Resort for you stay in the US Virgin Islands!

Room Tip: The condos up the hillside by the pool and tennis court are very nice and away from the noise of the...

We got a condo style room up on the hill. Great sa\tay for the price. Friendly people surf shop helped us out with some snorkle gear. They also have a great outdoor bar with decent food. Would definately recommend to others. Close to good nightlife and shops.

The place is amazing for couples, newlyweds or even families. Not a crazy night life. There is a bar, that closes early enough..no noise, and the beach is awesome. Yes it is public, but you don't find too much traffic Great food, the place is a bit older in style, but that seemed of no relevance. Everything worked great, good service, and was tidy and neat. I really enjoyed it here.

Room Tip: Depends on your budget, but I would stay closer to the beach that on the hill.

It was our first visit to US VI and we never regret choosing Secret Harbor Resort! Our studio was right on the beach, which was amazing! The harbor is also a perfect place for snorkeling and scuba diving. They have great diving shop on spot "Aqua Active Diving Center", which I can highly recommend. The room was neat and clean but kind of outdated. I think it's a bit overpriced for the comfort level they offer. Nevertheless, the location trumped everything. We drove around the Island and went to St. John - I'd say Secret Harbor is the best!

We stayed at the Secret Harbour to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversay. We rented a car at the airport which was very handy. We took the ferry to St John's Maho Bay resort to renew our vows, which is where we got married. The resort is a 5 minute ride to the Red Hook area which has lots of great restaurants, a grocery store and shops. The snorkeling at the resort was fabulous. You can't beat snorkeling off your own beach!

Room Tip: The rooms vary so check out your room before you check in to make sure it is what you want.

We stayed for a week in one of the beach front units, #134. It had been recently renovated and it was quite nice. You can tell that the buildings are very old, but the unit had new counter tops, stove, shower etc. We upgraded upon arrival, so staff had to do a little bit of work to our room to get it ready for us (towels, sheets on the bed etc) The beach was beautiful and kept clean. Snorkeling was great! And we loved the corn hole and ring game on the beach! We never had a problem getting fresh beach towels, chairs or umbrellas, in fact there was basically no on on the beach! We love traveling in the "off season"!! The staff was pleasant, especially in the restaurants. Great drinks and food!! The servers & bartenders we among the friendliest in St Thomas! We want to go back ASAP! Thanks Secret Harbour!

Room Tip: Beach front upgrade was worth every penny!!

Everything at our finger tips and surrounded by culture. If I wanted it we got it!!! Great beach, resturants, rooms, views, sunsets, aquatic life, five minutes from town. St. Johns was a 30 minute wait and 15 minute boat ride. The bay was always calm and crystal clear. IT was not crowded at all and the staff were very welcoming.
