I visited Frenchman's Reef this past weekend with a group of friends from undergrad. We hadn't seen each other in almost ten years and booked this resort based on the recommendations of mutual friends. Things I liked: *The views...this is basically their claim to fame in my opinion and honestly the main reason I would ever consider revisiting this resort... More

Spent 5 nights 6 days at this property and had chosen this resort because it was a "Marriott". This location needs some major renovations. Our room had furniture that was nicked, Two different floors that were uneven and a toilet that was backing up on our last day. We had to listen to jack hammering overhead the entire time we...

Bravo to the staff of Frenchman's Reef for a perfect last day in the Caribbean. We arrived by taxi at the busiest time of day, and the hotel was perfectly set up to wish yesterday's visitors good-bye and to greet the new crowd. Waiters circulated with fresh ice water with lemon, baggage was checked in while we waited for a... More

The USVI and BVI are beautiful. However, the hotel is very run down. We had 3 ocean front rooms and all of them had severe rust on the lamps, air conditioning vents, and smelled moldy. The service is very poor. Ordering food at the every restaurants is extremely slow. The waitstaff are almost all senior citizens, and you feel bad... More

Huge property. Beach is nearly 100 steps down from the main building and faces east--great for morning and mid-day sun, not good for afternoon sun. Great staff, including the gentleman who checked us in; Dierdre at the pool bar; Miss Daphne and Elena at the Sunset Grill.

Stayed 7 nights at the Frenchman's Reef. Definitely was a little nervous based on reviews but quite honestly there are not many options on St. Thomas. First, do not stay in the Morningstar section. Absolutely a one star. We were first brought to a top floor ocean front room that we paid top dollar for and the minute we opened... More

We had never been to the Caribbean before and stayed at Frenchman's Reef. We had a Royal Suite Island View (2 story w/king bed). It was great - even with island view we could see the beach. Everything was clean and working properly. The property was undergoing some renovations and that was not fun - they blocked off most of... More

This was such a blast!! Captain Joe and his crew Jodi and Mason were wonderful, the dinner was delicious and the views and history were really cool!! Joe even pointed out the planets for us. Do it while you are there!! And there are "real" mermaids in the water !!

You are not told when you book, but the Morningstar wing (Building D) of this hotel is undergoing major renovation. There is a constant jack-hammer sound during the day. We were told we could store all of our belongings the next day and IF there was space elsewhere, we would be relocated. We talked to another couple and their ocean... More

We actually stayed at Frenchman's Cove through Marriott Vacation Club. It was wonderful. Participated in the Cat Sunset Cruise with Captain Joe, Jodi and Mason. Very enjoyable. Good food and can't beat watching the sunset from the Cat and the lights of Charlotte Amalie at night. Another night did the Night Kayaking with Dylan and Emma. Saw lots of fish,... More
