I don't have enough words to say how wonderful my stay was at Mafolie hotel! What makes it truly special is the outstanding staff. From the first contact, Julie at the front desk was so helpful, I needed a hotel room at the last moment and she made it happen! I was traveling with my 11 month old baby and she brought a crib and a smile with it. Kashia my angel, she brought a baby blanket and when I needed diapers she brought them for me.... I have no words to tell you guys how grateful I am. The food and the view! Wow... amazing! Thank you Paul for the great drinks and thank you Duncan for the good service! Thank you to the lady who made sure our breakfast was served and the smoothies were on our table, and even thank you for the lovely ladies who take care of keeping the rooms beautifully clean! I have travelled around the world and this is by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in ! Thank you guys!

I am a local here on St Thomas. Right before Christmas time, I had four people come down here and I chose to put them up at the Mafolie Hotel. The staff was extremely helpful with my changing plans in how many guests I had coming in to STT!!! They were able to accommodate the second two people at the last minute which was awesome!!!
The view is breathtaking there! They have a nice pool, & deck/patio/lounging area. I know breakfast is offered in the mornings although I did not join them for my guests. Dinner, however, I can vouch for. They have GREAT steaks! My husband and I dine in at their restaurant even when we do not have company in town.

No photograph can do the view justice which is simply spectacular. We stayed in room 113 which had a great side deck with shade in the afternoon. There was a glass top table and four chairs. We overlooked the pool and cruise ship port. We could get a nice breeze from simply opening the window in the room. It can get rather expensive taking cabs to/from town. Fortunately everything you need is onsite. Start your day with a continental breakfast and a fruit smoothie. Ella makes the best since she tosses in a bit of luv. Her fruit smoothies were the best during our five week travels through the US and British Virgin Islands. We enjoyed dinner at the restaurant. The young couple Adam and Kasia who run the Mafolie Hotel are hard working and take a lot of pride in their work.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private deck.

We recently enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Mafolie following a week of self-catered sailing from Road Town, Tortola. The restaurant served a diverse menu of high quality seafood, island fare as well as the more traditional steaks and so on. The food preparation was excellent, especially a dish of jerk spiced grilled jumbo shrimp.... really great! The staff in the restaurant were highly professional, responsive and friendly which was especially welcome after a week of cooking, serving and cleaning up after ourselves on the water.

The rooms were well equipped with a small fridge and good sized bed/bath, A/C, sofa, etc. a PC and printer were available for those of us who left all that behind for the trip to the islands. As the sign says, its a world famous view as well from the bar/dining area and pool, not to be missed. The room rates were very competitive and a good deal better than the major hotel chain choices nearby.

We'd just finished a 6 day sailing trip and stayed at the Mafolie before flying out of St Thomas. This was a great spot for us. The staff was awesome and incredibly accommodating -- they helped with dinner reservations and calling cabs and served our very hungry crew us lots of bread (!) as we waited out a big rainstorm before dinner. It was a really nice place to spend our transition night before heading back home and out of vacation mode. Thank you!

Room Tip: we had a room with a futon which worked out well for the extra person (me!)

We found the Mafolie Hotel to be the most charming, intimate and hospitable place on the island, with-- as the many photographs on this site will attest- breathtakingly beautiful views.

The hotel is not on a beach but right in the middle of the island atop a hill, giving the property stunning panoramic views of Charlotte Amalie and the harbor.The property itself is gorgeously landscaped with multiple levels, each looking over the sea. The central location is also very convenient, making it easily accessible to/from the airport, the red hook ferries to St John, and the downtown shopping area and restaurants.

The owner/operator, Adam (who also owns the Inn at Saratoga in New York State) was extremely helpful and friendly, which added that extra personal touch. Rooms were comfortable and decently sized with individually controlled air-conditioning and a fridge. The one single criticism would be the bathroom which was small (albeit clean), poorly stocked with amenities and had dismal water pressure.

Breakfast is included and is served in the wonderful outdoor (canopied) terrace of the restaurant. While not a huge spread, it included boiled eggs, a selection of pastries, coffee/tea, and orange juice, with freshly made smoothies.

Overall, you get the simultaneous feel of both a luxury and a budget property.
Service and ambience are five star, but the prices are very reasonable.

I highly recommend staying here. The choice of hotels on St Thomas is surprisingly limited, and if you want something more intimate than the typical corporate hotel experience, and also want to be away from the hub and hubbub of the cruise ship passengers, then this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: We were in Room 112- which is the most basic room type. I cannot attest to other rooms, but our room...
