In a city that appears to have limited accommodation options, Mafolie is a breath of fresh air: amazing views, nice staff, and a lot of attention to details, both functional and aesthetic. The property is very comfortable and relaxing and there are interesting little artistic and botanic highlights and flourishes everywhere. The pool area is great and even the fast food served poolside is quite decent.
My only two criticisms of this hotel concern, first, the bad internet--you apparently have to sit in one particular area by the pool at a certain time to get wifi reception (though admittedly bad internet connections only help a person relax, which is why we were there in the first place!).
The other problem concerns the prices in the restaurant, which are much too high. Perhaps the ingredients for prepared food are outrageously expensive in the Virgin Islands, I don't know, or perhaps I'm spoiled living in a city that has great food at affordable prices (Toronto), but USD 32 for an only-good-but-not-jaw-dropping-amazing jambalaya? I can't help but think that management is gouging people simply because the view is fantastic (and it is) and because those staying at the hotel have no restaurant options (the hotel is located well away from the city centre, and a long way uphill of it).
