My wife and I had visited this property 11 years ago and I was amazed at how it had changed for the worse. First, being generous, the service was mixed to bad. In general the staff fell into 2 categories. Those who were from St. Thomas, as a whole miserable and grumpy. Hardly what you expect from premier destination. and...

We stayed at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef Morning Star resort in St. Thomas for a week. The hotel was delightful. The rooms were spacious, clean, the bed was very comfortable and the shower was excellent. There were four or five bottles of water left in the room every day. The room came with a safe and a refrigerator. Every room...

This was our 1st visit to Frenchman's Reef. It wasn't our original intention to visit St. Thomas, but rather an afterthought when we realized we could travel to our next hotel on Scrub Island via ferry from St. Thomas. The stay was pleasant, but the resort could use improvements, as is probably true of most businesses. - Biggest piece of...
