We loved our stay at Mafolie. The restaurant was closed during our stay, so we can't comment on the dinners there, but the hotel itself was wonderful, and the restaurant was open for breakfast every day, and the breakfast was phenomenal. The omelets and pancakes were great; the French toast was delicious, and I highly recommend trying the "Josh" potatoes. Our waitress every morning was so kind and smiley - seeing her for breakfast every morning was one of the highlights of our trip to St. Thomas. The hotel itself had lots of character. It was definitely not a cookie-cutter, chain hotel, but had more of a boutique hotel vibe. The views from pretty much anywhere on the hotel grounds were stunning and overlooked the old town district of Charlotte Amalie, the main harbor, and Water Island. We had let the hotel staff know we were there for our 15th wedding anniversary, and when we arrived we found a hand-written card from the manager, balloons, and a bucket of champagne on ice. We didn't notice a ton of bugs in September, but mosquitos would come into the room at night if we left the balcony doors open, so we really wished there were some type of screen or netting on the balcony door, but it was still so nice to crack open the balcony doors every morning and lie in bed watching the harbor come to life and listening to the sea plane take off on it's morning run to St. Croix. We stayed in room 108, and loved that it had it's own little gated entrance, along with a private balcony. Our only complaints were that the bathroom needed some updating (mismatched fixtures, a broken floor drain in the shower, water damage on the vanity), and the king-size bamboo bed was absolutely beautiful and fit the tropical aesthetic perfectly - but it was also really squeaky anytime you moved or rolled over during the night. Also, the Wi-Fi in the room was great, but the light was really bright at night, and we hung towels from the bed frame to block the light while sleeping. Overall, though, it was a really great hotel with very friendly staff, incredible views, unique atmosphere, and a location that was really right in the center of the island, within about 15 minutes of almost everything we wanted to do. We loved that the hotel was located high up on the mountain. In the jeep we rented, one of our favorite things to do was to take the roof off and drive around the higher areas of the island, overlooking the ocean views around sunset and listening to the sounds of birds and insects all around us - something we're sure we would have missed out on if we'd have stayed at one of the bustling, seaside chain resorts. We'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quieter, friendly, out-of-the way, hotel with friendly staff and more of an authentic vibe.

Response from Stephen M, Owner at Mafolie Hotel
Responded 1 week ago
Hi Tayler, Thank you very much for the kind and thoughtful review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your wedding anniversary. I told Josh, one of our chefs, about your comment regarding his potatoes. He hasn't stopped smiling since and said, "Those potatoes have made me famous!" We'll fix the maintenance items you pointed out. We've been working hard to repair and update the hotel but, like any old ship in the tropics, it needs constant love. Hope to see you again soon! Stephen

Excellent little hotel (20+ rooms or less), with amazing views of Charlotte Amalie and the harbor below. Friendly hotel staff, great pool and restaurant. You have to get the “Josh” potatoes… and don’t forget to say hello to Josh (their cook).😊

The room had just finished being cleaned and it was very clean, but overall, the feeling was one of being tired. At night, there was a large loud party in the pool that went into the night. I couldn't find anybody at the hotel to speak to about this as nobody answered the front phone and nobody was there when I walked down. When we checked in/out, the people didn't seem interested in how our stay was. The location is terrific, up on a hill overlooking Charlotte Amalie and its very convenient to the airport. Parking is difficult on the road if you have a Jeep.

Traveled with girlfriends, passed through for a night on our way to Tortola. Patio door did not lock, did not feel safe. Cockroaches in room. Restaurant & hotel was overpriced. Would not recommend. Property needs updates. Location in the hills, not convenient to town.

Lovely view, small boutique hotel felt comfortable and friendly. Restaurant and bar were great. Room could have used some updating but still comfortable and clean. Water went out twice during our one night stay but was resolved quickly each time. This is a historic hotel and if you can appreciate it for that would recommend.

We stayed at Mafolie for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. The views of the bay are incredible and the staff is incredibly accommodating, friendly, and helpful. We were upgraded to a gorgeous higher priced room without even asking and when we had trouble with a television, Elizabeth brought us a brand new one! The restaurant is amazing with delicious breakfast included, and the pool is clean and glorious. Why choose a “big box” hotel when you can have an authentic, peaceful, island sanctuary on a hill. Highly recommend!

We stayed here one night due to a late Delta flight that caused us to miss our Cape Air connection to St Croix. The view of Charlotte Amalie and the harbor is outstanding. The property is an older one that is adequately maintained. The proprietors are very nice. There are extensive stone stairways on the property that are steep, narrow, twisty, uneven, slippery after a rain shower and very likely to have a cat sleeping or sunning itself on them so be on your guard if you are unstable on your feet. If you leave your window open the cat might enter your room and visit you as it did with us. It's a very sweet cat.

Mafolie is a quirky little hotel with a magnificent view and excellent restaurant. Each bedroom is unique, but some have no views :/. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Room 114 must have been 2 single rooms joined together, as it has 2 modest bathrooms, a sitting room with large TV, and a bedroom with king size comfortable bed. I imagine the people who book the earliest get the best rooms, the rooms with a view. We must have booked late. Still happy to be here

Good view BUT the room was a total disappointment. Old and very tired , the entrance to the room was through a dark storage area. It was like a converted basement , sold as a junior suite. No coffee . Very noisy at night with lots of banging . Poorly lit. For the price , they can do a lot better. Pool bar was also closed and main restaurant leaves a lot to be desired.

We had booked a stay on March 5th for April 1, 2022. On March 8 Cape Air emailed us stating they had suspended service to St Thomas. No other airlines travel from Anguilla to St Thomas on those dares so we had to cancel. Even with 24 days advance cancellation the Hotel REFUSED to refund the entire amount. Under the circumstances we will never stay here when we get to St. Thomas Buyer Beware! Inflexible and arbitrary policy!
