My wife and I went here on our 20th anniversary and cannot say enough good things. Friendly staff, excellent accommodations, food, and amenities. They have a great water ferry over to close by Charlotte Amalie for shopping, dining, sightseeing adventures.

Small quaint beach that is part of Marriott. We snorkeled, swam and did the jet skis here. It was nice and quiet and absolutely beautiful.
