“Disappointed”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We used to love shopping at American Harbor, but it seems the economy has gotten the best of them. There were only 3 decent shops. Everything else is gone. We were really disappointed.

“American Yacht Harbor”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Easy to find and lots to offer. We went there specifically to board Magic Moments luxury yacht adventure but there are a lot of boats for hire there as well as an Irish pub and shops

“Not too touristy”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We rented a house outside of Red Hook and drove into town almost every day. The American Yacht Harbor has a lot of restaurants and shops to provide the traveler who doesn't want to drive to Charlotte Amalie, with food and shopping attractions. Neither one of is are shoppers so that wasn't important to us. We also enjoyed walking around the marina looking at the boats.

“Try to avoid”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

The taxi ride to town is shady. Not worth it. Food wasn't spectacular. Remember to be wary of taxi drivers. Check their license plate and the hood of the car must say taxi.

“Shops & Restaurants”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

If you're staying at Sapphire Beach this is the closest place to find food and souvenir stores. There aren't that many businesses here though. It's nothing like Havensight.
