Gorgeous place to stay on the island. Close to Red Hook where there are many dining options. Staff is friendly. The beach can get crowded but there are some quiet spots. The condos are lovely and right on the beach. Just walk out your sliding doors and put your toes the soft white sand. Escaped a major snowstorm back home... More

NOT the expected island experience ... a tourist trap w/nice water, but Sapphire may be your best option. The people seem weary of visitors/tourists, but need them to survive, so it's a strange juxtaposition and it's palpable. Few dwellings on this island are actually on the water due to the mountainous topographical layout of the island; thus, unless you're careful,... More

Sapphire Beach Resort has an expansive beach with the rooms directly on the sand. The pool is on the point with great views of St. John and the BVI's. The main restaurant is closed but they have venders selling sandwiches and such. Really close to Red Hook to catch the ferry to other Virgin Islands

There are many poor reviews on Trip Advisor for these condos on the beach. What I have finally figured out after staying here multiple times is that you must Rent from an owner who takes Pride and loves their units as if they live there fu time. The units rented by Exclusive are the u it's that have complaints If... More

We just got back from our week at sapphire. We stayed in unit D208. Great view from second floor. Newly updated kitchen. The beach is absolutely breathtaking. It is a short walk to the swimming beach. This unit is closer to the pool with great views of St John, and Tortola behind. We had a wonderful stay and would go... More

My husband and I went on vacation with a couple friends, and we stayed at Sapphire Beach condo rentals. It was just amazing!!!! The condos are awesome they have everything you could possibly think of. They are located right on the beach. The view is absolutely incredible.

The beach and down-island view from this place are spectacular. And you can get a very nice condo on the property. But the condo owners and the owner of the common areas have been in a deadlocked dispute for years, and the common area amenities are either gone or in disrepair. There is a wonderful pool. but there is no... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort last week. We stayed in unit A107 which has been renovated and is very nice. Updated decor, nice size bathroom and OCEAN FRONT. What more could you ask for?! Building C is being completely renovated so there was noise from that. But it didn't bother us. The restaurant/bar by the pool is... More

It is disappointing to see some of the negative reviews about Sapphire Beach. Please note that there are over 150 condos in the complex called Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. They are all privately owned and for the most part, are rented privately via VRBO/Home Away. If you rent with VRBO/HomeAway, the condo you see in the pictures will be... More
