“Everything and More!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2004

I spent at least a month reviewing all the "Tropical Locales" and the ins and outs of every place in between on the internet and chose Secret Harbour Resort in St. Thomas, VI. Then I kept my fingers crossed and waited. Well I'm back and proud to say I made the best choice possible for my family. If you like or love snorkeling this is the place. The waters at the resort are a designated marine sanctuary and provide the best array of marine life on the island. The waters are calm and pristine. The beach is great with white sands, palm trees and hammocks.
Plenty of space to find a spot for the entire day. The resort is well maintained and clean. The pool is excellent with a great ocean view. We had an ocean side suite so the water was only 20 feet away which we could see from our very large balcony. All the employees were friendly,pleasant and respectful. Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Evening go a long way here as opposed to just "Hi". Driving is hazardous due to twists and turns and narrow roads so I would recommend using a taxi to get around. There are many around at your convenience.
The Red Hook area is 2 minutes away where you can go to the supermarket, video store, shops and restaurants. Food is generally expensive everywhere so it's wise to pick up some staples to keep back at your room. There is a kitchenette with full size appliances so you can at least eat breakfast and lunch at "home". You will feel at HOME at Secret Harbour!

I have stayed at Secret Harbour each May since 1976 and absolutely love this place. The beach, a perfect palm tree lined cove, is absolutely superb for swimming and snorkeling with always calm water. The apartment suites are very spacious, large enough for year round living, many of which are very attractively decorated and casually elegant. The atmosphere is club-like, very private and secluded in feeling, offering tranquil and peaceful surroundings. The views are beautiful with spectacular sunsets. The Blue Moon Restaurant is one of St. Thomas' best with great food and a splendid seaside location. The resort staff are always gracious and accommodating. Secret Harbour is one of St.
Thomas's best kept secrets. It is truly a wonderful and beautiful place for a vacation. After all of the many great times I have spent here, what more can I say?

After reading all of the reviews on this website, we rather reluctantly went ahead with our travel agents recommendation to book a week at the Secret Harbour Beach Resort. Our only mistake was considering the negative reviews that the resort got. We had a FANTASTIC family vacation. The beachfront rooms had beautiful views of this remote, quiet harbour, you can't say this for many places on St. Thomas. You could keep your patio doors open and hear the waves on the beach. The very calm bay was perfect for small children to play and run in the water. The snorkeling was also very good. We enjoyed the use of the pool as well. A perfect quiet location. We used the kitchen for preparing several meals. All of the units are individually owned so the decorating from unit to unit can vary, but we looked into many of them and they all looked just as nice as ours. We had one breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Blue Moon Cafe. We thought the quality and service at the restaurant were o.k. - better for breakfast and lunch, below average for dinner. If you're looking for lots of resort activities - this is not the place for you. If you prefer a quiet, do-it-yourself vacation, this is a great place. The proximity to Red Hook was fantastic. Grocery stores, restaurants, ferry to St. John, all within a 5 minute drive. Terrific locale. We will definitely be back.
