“Will Stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We rented independently through Nancy's Condos.com. Had a two BR, three BA in unit B and loved it. Our view was awesome! The pool was great! There were two queen beds in one room and a nice comfy king in the other BR. Airconditioning worked great. Kitchen was fully equipped and even had some staples for our use. The eating places on the resort have improved greatly in the last year - new owners. The only negative to this resort was the fitness center. I am a runner and running in St. Thomas is hard with the narrow streets and hills so a fitness center is important. This one is not good and needs up-dating. Most folks don't care though since they are on vacation. Would highly recommend New Horizons full day snorkel trip and sunset cruise. Also recommend Heavenly Days half day snorkel trip. You will see several turtles.

Room Tip: Units B, C, D, E, & F have great ocean views. Unit B is closest to the pool too. Nice pool!

We visited The Elysian in 2011 for a week and loved it so much we decided to return for 2 weeks this year. We were there Oct 13 - Oct 27, 2012. What a relaxing and fun time. The location is perfect, close to both Red Hook and Charlotte Amalie. It's easy to catch the ferry from Red Hook to St. John for the day.
If you are looking for a quiet relaxing atmosphere The Elysian is the perfect place. Located on Cowpet Bay you feel like you are alone on a private beach. Being a smaller condo, you never have to fight for beach front lounge chairs or space. What a nice bonus.
We stayed in one if the studios with a small efficiency kitchen and it was the perfect size. Pretty much every room has some type of beach or ocean view. We love eating on out balcony. The only problem we experienced was the fridge not working and the staff replaced it within 15 minutes of our phone call.
You can snorkel right off the shore and it's great. If you need snorkel gear or other beach toys you can rent them right at the beach.
The Sangria beach side bar makes awesome loaded fries and has several good dishes to offer plus drinks. New this year is the Caribbean Fish Market restaurant. Very nice! They are working on the pool side bar. Looks like it will be open very soon.
Their staff is friendly and helpful. Thanks to Vicki who always makes us feel welcome.
We will be back. Love y'all!

Stayed at this resort in October. Had read that it was hilly so was prepared for that. We had a 2 bedroom loft on the top level...2 balconies looking directly at the ocean! Absolutely breath taking! The room was really nice , colorful and clean. The kitchen was more spacious than Ihad imagine, with all brand new appliances. I slept like Goldilocks in the murphy bed! Very ,very comfortable and it was a real eye pleasing piece of furniture! Very easy to pull down and put up. The a/c units were loud when watching TV,but not a problem when sleeping
I notice both the beach towels and room towels were on the fluffy ,thick side which was a plus. I found the staff to be pleasant. Two resturants on site, both are very good. Carribean Fish Market more upscale than the Sangrias Beachside Bistro.

On an 11-night vacation in St Thomas / St John we spent our 1st 4 nights and our last night at the Elysian Beach Resort. We used WoldMark points to both stays. Our first stay, we had reserved a King Studio, but were upgraded to a Parlor Studio (the Parlor studio has a full kitchen and a Qn size pull down Murphy Bed). We were nervous that the murphy bed would not be comfortable (I had visions of a sleeper sofa mattress) but it was a full, pillow top mattress and very comfortable. We didn't use the full kitchen, but it was nice having a full fridge to shop for our week on St John. We had a 3rd floor unit in Building Y which is at the top of the hill right near the entrance. Yes, it was a hike down to the beach and restaurant, but not has strenuous as I thought. The unit was very clean, comfortable and kept cool by the AC (something we did NOT have on St John). The bathroom was pretty small (sink & closet outside with toilet and shower inside), but it worked fine. I don't know how full the resort was, but the beach remained fairly empty (there was always a place in the shade and a hammock to relax on in the afternoon). We had a romantic dinner at Caribbean Fish Market, which was 5-star. You absolutely have to have a car and driving in STT is an adventure (I agree with the roller coaster comparison in the last review). Getting fresh pool towels was easy. In fact, we thought the pool and bathroom towels were very plush. All in all, it was a great way to begin our vacation. We returned to Elysian for 1 night at the end of our trip since we had an 8:30a flight and did not want to deal with getting a ferry from St John. We were given a King Studio room in Building X this time. Smaller kitchen, bigger bed and much bigger bathroom. Our room was on the bottom floor, so there really wasn't a view, but for 1 night we didn't care. Overall, we had a very good time. The units are very comfortable. The grounds are clean, the beach is nice (smaller than it looked in pictures), the beach bar & restaurant were great and the service was very good. If you're looking for a something with a kitchen, in a convenient part of the island, feel confident that the Elysian will meet or even exceed your needs.

Room Tip: the buildings at the low end of the alphabet (A-L) are closer to the beach, but the higher rooms hav...

We booked the Elysian over 8 months ago through Wyndam's "Endless Vacations". Their system gives you very little info so I really relied on Trip Advisor and the reviews there. The negative comments made me leery, but I'm glad we booked there. We expected clean and comfortable and our expectations were more than met - they were by far exceeded! The grounds are beautiful and the property well maintained. Our newly remodeled studio was lovely. The Cowpet bay beach is great to practice snorkeling if you are rusty. Yes there are rocks on the sides, but that’s what makes the snorkeling good! My tips: if you aren’t a fan of lizard like creatures - this isn't the place for you. They are everywhere (and I think kinda neat). I agree, renting a car makes the experience. BUT - practice with a rally car video game at home first. It's like driving a car over a roller coaster track. Only Budget will let you take cars on the ferry to St John. Yes, food is expensive. A large combo at Senior Pizza (Redhook's Pizza Hut) was $26. Half a gallon of milk $3.99. Go to the K-mart at Tutu mall before you go to the Food Center. You can find lots of staples (including rum!) there and save $. Bring some staples with you (i.e. small salt & pepper container, sugar, creamer, peanut butter etc.). The AC unit is loud, but if you’re used to sleeping with white noise, not an issue at all. We found that it is best to turn it off for a while when we were gone. The unit did freeze up and stop working properly, but we shut it off and it had thawed out while we were out. Check with your cell phone provider about coverage before you go. FYI, Verizon is very poor on the island. Overall, we loved the Elysian!

Room Tip: Buildings A-C are lower with easier access to the beach and pool. Buildings higher on the hill will...

A very nice resort. 2 restaurants. One of them is called sangrias and it is an outside restaurant on the beach. We ate there often. The other one is the Caribbean Fish Market, it's a bit pricey but the food was excellent.

Our building was building X and was located at the very top which was quite a hike. On the flip side though, we had a fantastic view from our room.

Private beach is nice and we spent a lot of time there. There is a beach hut on the resort which you can book some trips. The snorkeling cruise is a must!

the only downside is that there was no ATM on the resort and no elevators.

We will definitely visit again. St Thomas is absolutely beautiful!
