Stayed at the Frenchman for 2 nights while working my way back to the states. The resort did a great job welcoming me. I arrived at 11 am and they gave me a day pass to the pools and facilities while they got my room ready. Incredible views and wide open pool area. They have an excellent beach--must be 1/4...

We took the VI Cat tour to turtle cove with Captain Joe, Jodie, and Rhett and had a terrific time. Rhett's tour of the reef was fascinating and included a look at several turtles and lot of fish, including the real Dory. Jodie seemed to be everywhere -- checking out equipment, taking picture with our cell phone, pouring "pain killer",...

This resort was on of the most beautiful resorts I've visited. PaddleBoard yoga was amazing. Tour Guide Cynthia was super patient and attentive. Premises are top notch. I like having the local food of the places that I visit but if you like the traditional grills you'll like the food.... Rooms could be more updated.

We visited this property for a day trip when our cruise ship stopped in St. Thomas. Excellent beach, good chairs and umbrellas, and reasonable food. Pool could use a renovation but it was in fairly good condition. Hotel provided towels. Nice day!

Keep your credit card in your pocket. Do not give it to the front desk. I was charged over $130 for charges made to the restaurant and bar that I never went to. I talked to the front desk, the manager, saw the receipts and saw that it was not my signature and not my name even signed to the...

We spent a week here (husband was working, I was vacationing!). The resort is very nice: well maintained, friendly and helpful staff, great pools and beach, excellent food in the restaurants, handy shop with some deli items, and spacious, comfortable rooms.

We stayed in the Morningstar Hotel....I recommend if you like a small boutique-feel hotel, which I do. All of the rooms are on beach, but not all face ocean. It was a quick, 2 mins, walk to beach from any room. Several restaurants on beach, pool, tennis courts and beach shack to rent supplies. Parking was near, and free...big plus....
