Pros: All the employees where extremely attentive, the room was very comfortable, beautiful views, the pool area was great, the restaurant served delicious food.
Cons: Location, although you get to enjoy beautiful views in order to move around is best to rent a motorcycle or car.
Pros: The view and sea breeze were wonderful and service and accommodation was great
Pros: The restaurant was excellent. View of the harbor from every seat of this open air place. Even at the bar: the bartender's area was sunken to allow for better views. We were there at dusk, and watched as the daylight view of sailboats and a cruise ship turned into a sea of twinkling lights. Staff very friendly and helpful. One of the best Sunday brunches I've ever had. Easy taxi ride from airport and to ferry.
Cons: Since it is on a mountainside, there are a lot of stone steps to negotiate. No elevators, which makes it difficult if you have a lot of luggage, as we did. We only stayed one night, but I would have rented a car if we were staying longer, as it is too far to walk to town. Bedroom was small but comfortable. I would have preferred one with a view. Pool was small, and in view from the bar.
Pros: a great deal and a friemdly staff

Not enough pluses for me to return
Pros: Wonderful views! Great beaches, pools, restaurants, bars and activities. We were only there for one evening and then in to another leg of our trip. I would like to stay longer next time.

Cons: Staff was disinterested in providing good service.
Pros: Swimming pools are great with the view of the sunset.

Pros: The staff is extremely nice! They upgraded our room to a balcony with a view since it was our first time there. Which was pretty awesome. And the snorkeling is great at the hotel, absolutely beautiful.
Cons: the hotel is very average. It's pretty outdated, the hot water didn't work the first night then the next few nights it would work for about 10 mins. The room was incredibly humid, our clothes in our suitcase were not just damp but wet. The bed is not that comfortable and the food was very overpriced and very average. ONE empanada was 14 dollars.
I don't feel that for the price you are getting a whole lot. But overall you aren't staying in your room often so we had a great time
Pros: From beginning to end the staff was amazing! The food is second to none and the location is beautiful!
Cons: I guess our room could use a little updating, but overall was nice.
Pros: Staff are always great, friendly and attentive!
Cons: Rooms could use a little updating
Pros: The outdoor areas are beautiful. The staff is very nice. There is so much to see and do at the Resort. The restaurants are very nice and the food is very good. The free beach equipment was a lot of fun.
Pros: The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The amenities and number of activities you can do on site was great. The restaurants were par. ok food, nothing to write home about.
The views were beautiful and the facilities were clean.
Cons: The water pressure in our shower was sub par and it made for cleaning off after the beach difficult.
The carnival night which was advertised as very fun and a great time was not really all that exciting. I probably would have found something better to do with my evening had I known.
Pros: The onsite water activities that is available and heavenly days
Sailing boat option. Two nearby restaurants by hotel.
Cons: Bathroom toiletries could of been better. Like travel size shampoo and soaps for one time/ individual use

Pros: I liked that the hotel was close to the airport and had everything. It's close to downtown and shopping as well
Cons: The hotel restaurant and bar are a bit over priced and mostly American food. I was also checked into a room that was already occupied but it was quickly resolved.
Pros: The location is not very safe! As I was sitting on my 1st floor balcony a man came up to me after dark wanting me to let him use my cell phone. He had to be told numerous times NO!! He waited on my husband to go in the room before he came over and ask me!! It was very scarybecause it was very dark and not lit well at all! Then when I was checking out that morning the forensic police officers were there to investigate a burglary they had the night of our stay! If you are considering staying at this property I would definitely reconsider! As it did not seem safe at all!
Cons: It was not.a safe area. The cost to stay at this property is s RIP off!
Pros: Beach location, facilities, beachfront rooms, proximity to airport
Cons: Cleanliness of bathroom, tired looking rooms in dire need of light and airy updates
Pros: I enjoyed the overall experience at the Emerald Beach resort but the rooms and the property as a whole needs to be updated. It was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful and I especially enjoyed the quality inn location of the beach. It's proximity to the airport was a little disappointing but not overbearing. I would definitely stay there again but they had to straighten out the bill for me because the price did not match what I booked on kayak
Cons: The locals on Saint Thomas that inhabit the island are not very friendly in general. I really think they do not like tourists or Caucasian people at all And there were many lovely experiences I had with people there but you know who the locals are and you can tell that they really have a resentment. But as for the staff at the Emerald Beach they were lovely
Pros: Nice rooms friendly service. Great Beach!
Pros: Paul welcomed me every morning for breakfast at the restaurant. Smiles all around. Big sand beach that even had a place for a novice snorkelers to see exotic fish without being terrified. Crystal clear water. John set me up with trips and cabs. Even made sure I didn't get taken advantage of. I forgot and left my safe open, with money and potent pain meds, they cleaned my room and to my surprise nothing was stolen. Florentina was the cleaner and I was left feeling secure and safe in my room. I can't say enough about the staff. I really felt at home. Beautiful beaches, sunsets, beach bar parties. Will definitely go back again. I'm not kidding I'm telling everyone I know.
Cons: Spirit airlines
Cons: Ran out of water while taking showers multiple times
Pros: Loved the beach location and closeness to airport - we walked. Loved the cool tropical gardens and plushness of surroundings despite a drought. Loved the refreshing pool after being on the beach with the waterfall. Setting of restaurant is beautiful. Rooms and beds extremely comfortable and views are spectacular. Staff was very friendly and informative.
Cons: The shower ran out of water while I was in it. The quality of the food was okay but overpriced. Wine was way out of line expense wise.
Pros: Perfect location, beautiful beach front, close to the airport (you could literally walk there from the hotel) staff was friendly. Food and drink were definitely over priced but that's to be expected I guess because everything there has to be imported... Love this place and would definitely go back!
Cons: The pillows and bedding weren't very comfortable, U fortunately we didn't get a restful good night sleep any night we were there, but everything else was great!!
Pros: It was a nice hotel. The staff was great! Needs a little updating in the rooms, but they were very clean. The food was also delicious. I would stay there again.
100% Beachfront Resort on one of the most beautiful beaches on the Island of St. Thomas. Each room has a private balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea and just a few steps from the edge of the Ocean! OnSite Beachfront Restaurants; Caribbean Fusion and The Beach Bar
Pros: Fairly clean and quaint. Great Air conditioning.. Didn't get to stay for breakfast as we had to catch the early ferry to BVI. Dinner the night before was good.
Cons: Quite a few steps if you have heavy luggage.
Pros: Great location, extremely helpful and friendly staff. Just around the corner from all the shops and boutiques on Main street.
Cons: Lots of stairs. Not a problem for us, but if you have any physical disabilities this is probably not the best choice.
Pros: Bunker Hill is located in the town near shopping and restaurants and is good value for the money. It is not a luxury or beach front hotel, but is conveniently located in the town.
The rooms are adequate, wifi is available, the staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good.
It is very acceptable as an 1 or 2 day stay in the town.
Cons: Rooms were a bit outdated and there are no elevators to the top floors.
Pros: It Was A Very Nice Hotel..I Would Recommend It To Anybody
Cons: The Location Is Horibble
Pros: This hotel is very basic and is OK for an overnight stay. It is clean and the room had TV, air conditioning, a small fridge and en suite bathroom and shower. I would stay here again if it was only for a quick overnight. It is value for money.
The staff were phenomenal. I arrived at 11:00 PM as did other travelers. The hotel clerk came outside to the taxi to greet us and carry luggage inside. He also carried luggage to the room......the people were very friendly and helpful making for a pleasant experience. Breakfast to order, although limited, was very good and is included in the room cost.......:)
Cons: Several floors with only steps - can be a challenge if you have heavy luggage and no one to help......
Pros: Great Location, staff and breakfast!
Cons: Look oudated, the bed needs replacement and the shower was terrible...
Pros: What did your like?
The staff was very nice and eager to please. Stair are very common at hotels on St. Thomas. This is the first place I stayed where they took up my luggage. They breakfast was good and serviced by a friendly staff. I liked that it was a family run hotel owned by locals.
It is closed to all the shopping in the old downtown district which is a lot of fun.
Cons: What didn't I like?
I would not recommend families with small children to stay there.
All the stairs would be dangerous for them.
They are doing some additions which are not safe for children.
If you can not walk stairs this is not for you.
Pros: The staff were absolutely fabulous! This is a smaller family run hotel, that could use a little updating [nothing major] that you could care less about because the staff is just that great. They are very accomodating [held our bags for us after we checked out for a few hours]. The only draw back for some travelers might be that there are a lot of stairs, which was not a problem for us and our two younger children. We would definitely stay there again!!
Pros: So we got an e-mail a week in advance of staying here that the King bed Harbor View suite that we paid for for our dream trip was not going to be available because there were guests failing to vacate for the next week because of travel flight cancelations. You stated you would be giving us a standard room with a full size bed and a small food comp. at your reataurant for the inconvenience. Classy!!
Cons: You didn't offer any other way to resolve this, as in maybe telling the guests in the King Harbor View Suite that unfortunately you have that Suite sold for the weekend and they would be more than welcome to stay in your standard room with a full size bed if they wanted to extend their vacation.......
Located 1 mi (1.6 km) from the airport, Bunker Hill Hotel offers a great location, putting you within just a 10-minute walk of Emancipation Garden and Fort Christian.

Also, Blackbeard's Castle and Magens Bay are within a short drive.
Pros: The location was great. Easy access to shopping district. Staff was nice and helpful.
Cons: The towels weren't so clean but good thing I brought my own. Didn't like that the hotel was open on the middle so when it rain the steps and everything got wet which could be dangerous if you're leaving your room. No elevators.
Pros: It was clean and the air conditioning worked. Walk to downtown Charlotte Almalie.
Cons: It was very old, outdated and need renovations. The neighborhood was kind of edgy.
Pros: front desk lady was nice.
Cons: The courtyard smelled like cat urine, there were no phones in room to call taxi, there were holes in walls between rooms, gaps around air conditioning, ran out of small amount of toilet paper that was in bathroom and no one available to get more from, etc
No phone (had to roam to call cab) had to stand outside room to access free wi-fi
Pros: Great location, room was clean
Cons: Stairs, stairs, stairs, stairs. Lugging a heavy suitcase up to the top level left me breathless and sweaty. Im strong and healthy and still found it a challenge.
We chose this hotel for one night. Came late...left early. Any more time than that we would have definitely made another choice.
Pros: The location and price can't be beat
Cons: Well...the bed was a full size and very uncomfortable. When you moved around or got up of the bed you could hear the springs go 'sproing'! We kept looking to see if they popped out! The bathroom was miniscule...no shampoo, no washclothes or hand towel
