“Great Anniversary Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Based on reviews and what we were looking for – we booked Secret Harbor. It was perfect for our 25th Anniversary. As many recommended – we stayed on the beachfront and glad we did. We never made it up the hill to the pool; as the view and the sound of the water in front of us was perfect.
We are not typically big on snorkeling, but we read that it was good at this site. Wow great call – it was beautiful. At a friend’s suggestion, we purchased snorkel sets at our sporting goods store prior to the trip and then bought “bright” nylon mesh backpack to carry the gear. (The bright bag enabled us to easily see and to keep an eye on our stuff while snorkeling at St John.) You can rent gear and air mattress on site, but more than once - wished I had brought along a couple of cheap inflatable air mattress. The restaurant on site was good; the breakfast was a value, for island fare. On our way in from teh airport, our taxi driver graciously stopped at the grocery in Red Hook. We got snacks, lunch items and beverages. Be careful, I mistakenly bought a $9 bottle of 151 rum. That is the one item that is cheap on the island.
We usually dined at one of the Red Hook restaurants. We are glad we stayed at Secret Harbor and will be back.

A friend recommended Secret Harbour as a great place to relax, snorkel, dive and in general just unwind and enjoy St Thomas. Glad to say Secret Harbour did all this and more. While my wife enjoyed relaxing on the beach and reading I was able to snorkel. We had lots of people [ travelers and locals] say that Secret Harbour is one of the best spots on the island for snorkeling and I would agree. The team at Secret Harbour were all easy to work with and did all they could to make our trip enjoyable. We enjoyed it so much we stayed there in February and October of 2012 and hope to return in 2013 as well.

Room Tip: The units on the beach are well worth the extra cost.

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.
