We've stayed at Emerald Beach a couple times as a stopover on the way to the BVI. We did the same on our way to rent a sailboat in October and then tried Bolongo Beach on our way back and have decided that we won't stay elsewhere again.
The rooms at Emerald Beach are fine although nothing spectacular but the views are very nice. Now having experienced another beach on St. Thomas, I realize just how nice Emerald Beach is. It's a nice long beach with great swimming and plenty of room to play. The pool is gorgeous with a waterfall and a nearby bar. The restaurant, though a bit pricey, is also nice and the food is good. I wouldn't go to Emerald Beach for a vacation as there are still nicer places in the Caribbean but if you fly into St. Thomas and can't get a ferry until the next day, Emerald Beach is pretty perfect. It's walking distance from the airport though you'll want to get a cab if you have heavy luggage and it's a short cab ride to the ferry.
