The Emerald Beach Resort is an older smaller resort on St Thomas that is less than 10 minutes from the airport. The rooms have been updated a bit but you can easily tell it's been a while so temper your expectations a bit because it's not five star but it's not horrible either. While it has a bar and restaurant... More

I would not stay at this hotel again nor would I recommend it. The room were neither comfortable nor properly cleaned. Down to the ice given at the hotel was filled with dust particles. The bed and the high pillows were very uncomfortable and made for a less than ideal sleep after 11+ hours of flying. The location is good,... More

We stay here every time we are in St. Thomas and love it. The staff is amazing. The only complaint is slow service at restaurant. Great bar, amazing beach. Staff is very anxious to make sure that everything is perfect for your stay.

This was my second stay. I stayed because it is near my son who is a student at Un of VI. The rooms need to be updated and maintained. The beach needs to be cleaned up and the chairs should be replaced. Not sure if I would go back. The mattresses are uncomfortable. The curtains and lamps were not working... More

Nice hotel with excellent beach & food. Have to carry luggage up flights of stairs--no elevators. Near the airport but no planes after 9:00 PM so not a noise problem. Staff are very good and helpful. Plenty of taxis available for transportation.

Quick room check in...no coffee for room was disappointing. Nice pool towels and chairs for beach. Lots of loose grass in the water. Nice help with bags and safe opening and locking help. Front desk very helpful. Food not good and pricey.

Standards have declined since change in management. No towels in room. Service in restaurant was very low and disorganized. Lots of mosquitos in the room and no spray at the front desk or restaurant to address the problem.

We knew this wasn't going to be the Ritz but it was so depressing. The staff at the front desk is in slow motion. The rooms are not clean, there were tiny bugs around the sink in the bathroom. We went for a swim and the beach is pretty but we walked down to one end then another and the... More

Thank you for reviewing us. Our front desk staff are always improving their efficiency when it comes to checking guests in and helping current guests. Lindbergh Bay, like every beach in the USVI, is a public beach and a popular one at that. We have a beach attendant who comes through and picks up any litter they find and we... More

I loved the beach front experience and the pool. The balcony was so very close to the beach. At night you can hear the calm of the waves. The rooms were excellent.. Lovely employees. Very accommodating and helpful.
