The Sea Crest Inn
Reviewed January 29, 2011

We had a nice 3 day stay at the Sea Crest Inn. The view of Great Harbor was excellent. The room was nice with a comfortable bed and a basic kitchen. The A/C worked excellent as it can get very hot in Great Harbor. If you plan on cooking in the room you may want to bring some groceries along to the island because there is not much there. Although my wife informs me that there was a grocery store that we did not go to.

We loved the Sea Crest Inn. Our room was spacious, simple, affordable, and clean! The room was on the second level with balcony overlooking Great Harbor. The place is very quite/safe and the only noise you hear is an occasional music drifting in from Foxy's and sailing crowd unloading on the dock. The studio had a queen size bed, closet, dining table, small kitchen (fridge, microwave, stove top/oven, coffee maker--bring your coffee from US), trunk to lock up valuables (bring your own lock), spacious bathroom, and flat screen TV. Balcony also had a dining table and two chairs. We were staying there for about a week and we didn't request maid service, but they cleaned our room once in six days...not a big deal...When you make a reservation, hotel asks for a cashier bank check $450.00-500.00 to be mailed directly to them to ensure 'good faith.' We were a bit skeptical at first, but no need to worry...they're very honest. Paid remaining balance with our credit card...Oh there is no reception area, the inn keeper lives on the first floor. There are two tiny grocery stores on the island and there is a very nice small bakery. Grocery stores are pricey and the food selection is not great....nice selection of spirits! I would recommend buying groceries on the main island before coming to Jost or you can always grab breakfast/lunch/dinner in one of the restaurants on the island. What else....there is not one single ATM on Jost and the ones on Tortola are always out of cash or broken. The only reliable ATM is in Nanny Cay on Tortola and the airport in West End; it always worked for us. Another thing is power gets cut off quite a bit on the island and Sea Crest has no back up generator. The longest power outage for us was about three hours, but they usually last about 10-20 minutes and hotel gives you flash light and battery lamp just in case.

The Sea Crest Inn is a great little find in Jost van Dyke. We stayed in a very spacious room which was immaculate - very clean and comfortable. You will get a little bit of noise from Foxy's, but it's not bad. Great room at a great price! Make sure to eat at Alibaba's and Corsair's - these are GREAT restaurants. One of the best meals I had my entire time in the Virgin Islands was at Alibaba's. Be prepared to wait a little bit for your meal BUT you will not be disappointed!

We stayed there for 5 nights in March 09. We usually sail to JVD and it's our favorite island. This time we decided to stay land-based. Sea Crest is right next door to Foxy's and you can hear music at night from Foxy's but not as loud as you may imagine, we enjoyed it, did not keep us up. Patsy (pot-SEE) greeted us and cleaned the room, she was great. No, it's not squeaky-clean nor brand sparkling new, but that's not what you'd expect at JVD anyhow. There is air conditioning, but we preferred to keep the windows open and enjoy the nice evening breeze. Our upstairs room had a nice private patio. Hearing the wild goats outside the windows was a plus!

Sea Crest Inn is a lovely little apartment house right on the water., next to infamous Foxy's...We have stayed there many times and this last time, Ivy, the owner had updated the rooms and it really showed.
Any of you who have been to JVD know that the island does not have any resorts like you find on other larger islands or in the states, and if that is your desire this is not the island for you...but if you want the true Carribbean experience among friendly islanders this is a great place and Sea Crest Inn is a large part of the reason it is our favorite stop in the Carribbean .

Our 2nd stay at the Inn for Old Year's Day (12/31) and we found all aspects superior.Our stay was for a week.
Patsy, the on site person, cleaned our room(all are 24' x 14' studios) 3 times in the week that we stayed there.The full kitchen is a big plus and the location in Great Harbor is very convenient and user friendly with a great view of the village and harbor.
This place is a" find" and a bargain when one factors in the cost vs the facility.
Jost is just a beautiful island to visit and unwind with activities available should one desire them.

The price is right... $110/night.

But the rooms are not clean! The are simply aweful. We met the other 2 couples staying there and they said the same thing. Before they could use the bathroom, they had to clean up globs of stuff on the floor, use the tile cleaner, clean up ants, etc. I am NOT picky. I camp. But this was really bad. The A/C hardly worked. Good view, and good location, but that's it.

If you don't care about such things, I would recommend camping at Ivan's campground instead of here.
