First time here after getting a recommendation from a friend who has been coming here for years. As other reviews have posted this is not a resort this is renting a efficiency condo from an owner (which is what we did unit B-104) with some perks, not an all inclusive resort. With that said, you unit is fifty feet from... More

beautiful beach, beautiful scenery. Rained at night while we were here, but great days. Prices at the store for food was really high. $4.00 each person for a taxi into Red Hook. The people are super nice. Bring mosquito spray. Would I stay here again? Probably not just cause the price of food. I have stayed at other places just... More

Kathie was quick to respond to any questions and everything about the listing was accurate. Clean, comfortable, air-conditioned, well-stocked kitchen supplies. Two sets of snorkeling gear in the closet. We walked in the room, looked out to the beach, and couldn't believe that places like this exist in the real world. This room is on the second floor, in building... More

I love this beach! We stayed in B104, in a gorgeous renovated condo. The best amenity by far (and there were several) was a beautiful beach steps away from the condo. This beach has fantastic snorkeling! Sure, some parts of the resort were run down and in need of renovation. But we didn't care; we weren't here for a swim... More

We just got home from a full week at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina. We rented two condos a few doors down from one other - E 104 and E108. The view is absolutely beautiful and Sapphire Beach itself is unreal. It's really beautiful and there is a lot of wildlife. Snorkeling off the beach was great, too. The resort... More

A previous reviewer commented that the place looks like it was really nice at one time, but needs work to restore it to what it once was. That is true. The location is great, beach is nice, good snorkeling, nice pool - but there are a lot of projects that need to be done. For example, the parking lot is... More

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
