Hotel's Favorite
At a friend's recommendation, I made at Emerald Beach Resort. I'd seen the property years ago, but never stayed there. I was pleasantly surprised. The ambiance of the property is quaint and comfortable and the beach on Lindbergh Bay is clean and relaxing. Emerald Beach has all the full-service hotel amenities of larger resorts that charge twice the price. I look forward a longer stay there on the next visit to St Thomas.

Very disappointed in this “resort.” The rooms were dirty, mirrors hadn’t been cleaned and were smudged, bathroom had hair in it. There were tons of mosquitoes and ants in our room. There was also old food left in the mini fridge. Lots of pot smoking and there were sketchy people on the beach and the bar. Won’t be back to this hotel.

My mom and I needed a place to stay close to the airport as our flight was early in the morning. Emerald Beach was a quick and easy way for us to do so. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were average but well kept and perfect for what we needed.

Thank you for your review. You rated us 3 for location ? What is wrong with our location. Isn’t this what you looked for near the airport with a 100% beach front accomodation. It was perfect and yet we are rated 3 of 5. Emerald Beach Resort Team Thank you

Emerald Beach Resort was overall lovely and we mostly enjoyed our stay. There were a couple issues that we ran into that keeps this from being a five star review. First, very convenient to the airport. We never had to wait for a taxi as there was almost always one in the parking lot or one pulling up to drop people off that was happy to take us where we needed to go. Having the beach right by the hotel was a major plus. Most resorts on the island are not this close to a sandy beach; you either have to walk or take a taxi from most. Even having the airport literally in the backyard of the resort was fine. The planes are loud for only a couple seconds, and it got to be fun to watch them take off and land. The air traffic stopped at night, usually no later than 8pm. I was never woken up by the sound of a plane, even in the morning. The grounds were lovely and well maintained. Blooming flowers and well trimmed bushes dot the grounds. The bar had a good selection of drinks, and the meals were delicious and well priced. Having use of the beach chairs and umbrellas from the local vendor was a good plus. All staff were very friendly. Now for the minuses. The outlet on my side of the bed didn't work. There were other working outlets in the room, but not being able to charge my phone at bedside was annoying. One day housekeeping didn't bring us any towels but took the ones we had used. We came back later to find one towel and a couple wash cloths in a bag inside our door. Normally I don't mind reusing towels, but when you're showering off sand every day, you kinda want a fresh towel. The balconies face west, great view of the sunset from your room. However, there is no shade on them after noon, so enjoy roasting if you want to sit outside on them. The only foot rinse areas we found were down by the bar, and were just hoses. No other areas to wash the sand off our feet. This might have been by design to get you to drink at the bar. The service at the restaurant was SLOW, but not because the wait staff were slow. They would only have one person at a time waiting all the tables, handling all the checks, bringing out all the food, and mixing all the drinks for anyone eating at the restaurant. How could they possibly keep up? One day my husband wasn't feeling well so we wanted to hang a do not disturb on the door, but there wasn't one in the room. I went to the front desk to request one, but it never appeared.

I have been staying here for my trips into St Thomas for the past few months and it is a great place to stay. The staff has always been helpful with any questions I have asked in the past few trips. The onsite Dinning has one of the best NY Strip stakes around.

Nice little resort hotel. We flew in to get on our cruise the next day and had a great evening at Emerald Beach resort. We just walked from the airport to the Emerald Beach Resort. The beach was great, not crowded,very relaxing, my son rode the jet ski's there. The room was great, AC worked, beds were good. The next day we went to Magen's Bay which was a disappointment compared to the beach at Emerald Resort. Will not make that mistake again and just go back to Emerald Beach resort. My only complaint was the pricing at the restaurant, though it was Valentines day, we chose to take a cab and go to the main part of the city. Plenty of cab's available day and night to get where you need to go.

The hotel is so outdated for the price that was charged. I was there for work and was so disappointed in this hotel. I canceled my 2nd night stay and booked at a different hotel. I would never stay here again. I hate to see the lack of service provided. The hotel management needs to revamp their training and conduct it quarterly along with room checks to bring them up to date for the price people are paying.

Overall stay was great, rooms need to be fumigated. Each morning we woke up with new bites. We hardly slept. The customer service was great, the view was AMAZING. Many things to do on the beach. Taxis are pricy.
