Recent Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina reviews

  • Wonderful!

    "We were a group of 16 who rented 5 condos at Sapphire Beach Resort. We rented both of Sheila's condos that are next to each other. It was so nice to open up the patio between the two to make a large area that many nights our full group would hang out. The condos were perfect and had everything that we needed for our stay. To wake up to the view each morning was heavenly and the beach was great. We ate at Fish Tails, Caribbean Fish Market, Sunset Grille and Oceana and all were very good. Sheila answered tons of my questions in a timely manner and gave me great information that I used throughout our trip. She really does care that you have a good time on vacation. Thanks Sheila, and I hope we can come back soon!"

  • If you like the beach, this is the place!

    "I won’t repeat all the positive comments so far, but can confirm they’re all true. Greg has a great, clean little place here and you can’t beat the location. He’s stocked a good supply of books if it’s just a few days on the beach catching a tan, and if you didn’t bring your own gear, he’s got a good stash of snorkel gear in the closet. Another huge plus, the snorkeling is fantastic here right off the beach. Our routine: wake up, snorkel, eat lunch, lie in the sun, snorkel, lie in the sun with a cocktail, hit the pool, head into town to find dinner – repeat 5 times. For some time out on the water, along with Greg’s recommendations for charters, I’ll add Yacht Nightwind which is also just across the parking lot in the marina. If you don’t rent a car, be sure to get a cab to take you the ¾ mile into Red Hook (cabs are not a problem here), stop in at Island Time Pub, split a salad and some wings and take home a 16” pizza for breakfast. Food Center also has some good roasted chicken as well as some local favorite dishes. We had a great time Greg, thanks for the perfect week. Be back in a couple months."

  • Beautiful family vacation

    "This was our first time to St.Thomas. The location was perfect. My husband and 2 kids ( 4 and 11) had a great time. The view in the morning is amazing while enjoying your coffee! We took a boat trip to British Virgin Islands to snorkel and see Virgin Gorda (totally worth the money). We ended up having such a great time so we booked an all day sailboat trip to St. Johns to snorkel some more. The boat trips pick you up right outside the condo. The beach at the condo is white sand and crystal blue water. We went on this vacation with another family that stayed next door (also owned by Phil and Angela). Our patios were connected by balcony door ( that we just left open ). It was such a bonus to be able to be able to visit with each other, eat breakfast on the patio together, but also still have our own place. We rented a car in St. Thomas and drove around the island, dinners, grocery, etc. We put our car on the ferry and took it to St. Johns for the day to explore that island and all the wonderful secluded beaches it has to offer. ( FYI There is only 1 rental car company that lets you take your car on the car ferry) We had professional family pictures taken on the beach right outside the condo- it was a beautiful location. My kids loved the 2 level pool at the condo with a view right into sapphire beach. Special thanks to Phil and Angela- their place was very nice and clean and they have thought of everything! Beach chairs, coolers, towels and all the kitchen appliances you would need. This was an awesome family vacation."

  • Mostly Wonderful, Some Not-so-wonderful

    "I've been trying to think about how to review this condo, and I think a list of pros and cons might be easiest: Pros: The view - amazing. From the back veranda, you could see some gorgeous water, as well as St. John (if you walked a few feet down the beach). The beach - quiet and beautiful; at times, it felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves, which was cool. Very clean and maintained. The decor - very modern, updated, trendy. The cabana bar - lordy, those women could make some rum punch. I mean, one would do ya just fine. Some were working on island time, but they made up for it with that rum pour. The critters - my hubby and I really enjoyed the iguanas and little lizards and hermit crabs, as well as some cute little leopard-print ducks. We're big animal lovers, so it was neat to see some new faces. Cons: I think that the condo itself (and its furniture and fixtures) could stand a once-over and here's why: Within an hour of arriving, I found myself locked in the bathroom. My husband used the bathroom before me and said the door didn't shut completely, so it swung open mid-stream, shall we say. Well, I'm not so brilliant, so I gave the door a firm shove when I went in (I didn't know about his door experience yet) and... it stuck. I believe the pin that goes from the knob into the door frame itself jammed up or broke completely. I had to remove the doorknob from the inside with a knife and a screwdriver that the very nice maintenance man passed me under the door. We spent the remainder of our honeymoon without a bathroom doorknob. I'll just say - it sucked. Could have been much worse, but still sucked. My hubby, who weighs all of 165 lbs, was sitting in a wooden chair on the back patio area a couple nights before we left and it actually split apart and dumped him onto the ground. It looks like it's happened before because there was already a small wooden piece of the back missing. We were able to fit the pegs back together and it was intact again, although we didn't sit in it for the remainder of our trip. Bottom line, the view and beach is fantastic but I think this place really needs some routine maintenance. As it stood, with the bathroom and the chair incident, it rates a solid 'good'. I would definitely consider returning, but suggest the owners visit first and make a few improvements."
