In our hopes to use our Wyndham timeshare points we decided to try the Elysian. Having read the reviews I was not quite sure how I would feel about the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was totally adequate. We have a room with two double beds, small kitchen, bathroom and balcony. Was it the Ritz Carlton...not quite but it fit the bill. Good news is that we really enjoyed ourselves. The beach is pleasant, my husband was able to find someone to play tennis with everyday, the workout facility (it is an outside concession so you pay a daily or weekly fee for its use) was adequate, and it was a great base to go off and enjoy all that St. Thomas has to offer.
There were a few "disconnects'" that we experienced regarding the staff at the hotel. For example, when the toilet started leaking the front desk was responsive and adequately fixed the problem. The disconnect was that someone was needed to come by and clean the toilet and supply new towels. Another example was that the front desk clerk did not know how to run through a charge card and had me wait until the bookkeeper was available to come by and do it for her. While none of this is earth shattering it is indicative of little roughness around the edges.
We took cabs everywhere. I am so glad that we chose NOT to drive. To drive on the reverse side of the road but use American cars is quite unsettling. Most of the taxis are these large vans that drive in the middle of the road. In the end, taking cabs was cheaper and a whole lot safer than us driving.
