Needed a hotel close to the airport for a single night. Room was charming and very comfortable with a view of the ocean. We were pleased that there was an onsite restaurant and beach bar. Will definitely rebook next time we are in St. Thomas.

We spent the night here after sailing in the BVI. We were very impressed with the kind staff. The rooms were very nice and right on the beach. I snorkeled some. Restaurant and bar were great. Loved this place and I have recommended it to friends.

I stayed here Oct. 29th - Nov. 2nd, 2015. I had no issues with check in and was presented with a coupon for a free rum punch. The room was clean upon inspection. Same with the towels and the linens.

Thank you for your review of Emerald Beach Resort. You experienced a very strange phenomenon that happens once every year or two when there is intense rain: the flying ants or termites! They are everywhere; somehow they even manage to get inside. They don't bite or sting, and they are gone as quickly as they appear. Very rare and very...

Reviewed 17 November 2015

This isn't a fancy place but it was clean, friendly and very close to the St Thomas airport. It would be a reasonable place to stay as a quick stop between islands or a convenient place if luxury isn't a desire. Beach, pool, bar and dining are good; rooms are okay.

I stayed for a night before getting on a sailing charter. The hotel, rooms, and ground are great. The beach bar is also fun. Great value for a night or two. We ate at the buffet at the recommendation of the bartender. The food was not particularly good and was $30 per person which we felt was way over priced....

We had been traveling all day. We arrived by taxi from the Charlotte Amalie airport about 11:00 PM, choosing this hotel for its convenience and low overnight cost. Upon check-in, they gave us a voucher for a free drink at the bar, which the front desk clerk "believed was open". We soon discovered that it had closed at 10:00. We...
