  • Awesome Vacation

    "My Wife, 2 boys and I enjoyed our week at the Ritz Club in St Thomas. The Staff at the property are amazing. The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. The owner, Ken, was great to work with. We were last minute on our planning and he worked very hard to make this vacation happen for us. He also provided us with information he has gathered about the resort and the Island over the last 17 years he and his family have been vacationing there. We had such a great time. We went fishing and caught 60 lbs of Black fin Tuna. It was so good. The Deckhand cut one up on the way back to the resort and we had sushi on the boat. We took the ferry over to St. John and snorkeled Trunk Bay which was rated one of the top beaches in the world. We took a boat over to Virgin Gorda and toured these huge rock formations called the Baths. We went too Cook island with a population of only 35 residences and had a great lunch. We snorkeled the caves of Norman Island where pirates hid their treasure. There is so much to do around the Islands and on the Island. We took a water Taxi over to Hassel Island where we rented a golf cart to tour the island. We visited the old WW2 Artillery Bunker which was very interesting and has great views. Then we Golf carted down to a beautiful Bay and ate a great meal at an open air beach restaurant and swam in the bay with the kids all afternoon. The Ritz Carlton Club on St Thomas is an ideal vacation for Families because it is located so close to all of the activities and has seperate bedrooms for everyone and a kitchen. We ate several meals in the residence. Their is a grocery store 5 minutes from the resort with everything a mainland store would have. We had maid service every day. They changed our linens mid week and we had turn down service every night. We loved our Housekeeper. She became part of the Family by weeks end. To sum it all up. The owner was great to work with. St Thomas is a great vacation destination with many activities to do and incredible beaches if you just want to relax. The Ritz Carlton Club is the most luxurious accommodation on the island. I couldn't think of a better place to Stay on St. Thomas. We will be back again."

  • WOW is the only way to describe the view from this unit. It’s breath taking

    "WOW is the only way to describe the view from this unit. It’s breath taking. Everything you‘ll need to spend the day at the beach is inside the condo beach chairs, cooler, snorkel gear and towels. If you are unlucky enough like us to have stay in due to rain storm during the evening don’t worry there is everything you need to make some painkillers cook a meal and listen to some music, I do advise bringing an auxiliary cable if you have a newer iPhone model . The condo is impeccably clean and well maintained; sugar beach is less than a minute walk from the condo also Panga’s and one of the 3 pools are within 2 minute walk. The staff that runs the Point Pleasant property now is extremely helpful as I just found out upon arrival they just took over on April 1st 2014. They assisted us with grocery shopping and even picking us up a few times from the red hook area. They operate a shuttle starting from 8am the latest we called for was around 8pm so not sure till what time the shuttle runs. Also they will pick you up from your condo and take you wherever they can drive within the property if you do not feel like walking or have limited mobility. Now about the booking process Ben was extremely helpful and it was very quick and simple no hassles. What you see in pictures does not do the condo justice really. It is closest to red hook out of all the areas to hang out and taking the ferry over to St. John is very easy. Also if you have any activities planned for early in the morning arrange your taxis the day ahead. I stayed for 4 nights with my 2 sisters and as you know us women can over pack. There was enough room for all our things. I will definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you for an amazing stay!!"

  • The relaxing getaway we were looking for

    "My husband and I spent a week here and can't wait to plan our next visit! Starting your day with coffee on the porch with the most amazing views was easy to get used to. The apartment was well furnished, with everything we could possibly need. You won't find a better view in Red Hook. The walk down the hill to town wasn't too bad at all. You are so close to lots of restaurants, but I definitely recommend renting a car. We spent a lot of time at Sapphire beach, which was a 5 minute drive away and a relatively quiet beach. You have to book a sailing trip with Max, because it is hands down the best thing you can do on your visit. We spent our mornings and evenings on the porch taking in the views and enjoying the company of Eva, the resident pup. The bird watching from Lion's Gate is pretty good also. Anything we needed, Max helped us with right away. We are already anticipating our next visit, it is absolutely a slice of paradise at Lion's Gate, you won't be disappointed."

  • Awesome place, I'm coming back!

    "We checking in to the Marriott down the road. Changed rooms 3 times, and was super disappointed with the filth, of the rooms, restaurant, and overall expectations. After about 4 hours there, we jumped on home away, fount this place, called michelle, and we were on our way to heaven! The Ritz Club is everything you could expect and more. Rooms, service, beach, overall experience was awesome!"

East End Travel Tips

Situated just east of Puerto Rico, the small Caribbean Island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands is known for its beautiful beaches, shopping and dining. The quieter East End area makes a pleasant contrast with the busy capital and port of Charlotte Amalie. The quiet town of Red Hook with its red-tiled homes overlooking Pillsbury Sound has a relaxed atmosphere, uncrowded beaches and spectacular dive sites. Along the streets of this charming town, the Havensight Mall offers great Caribbean wares at duty-free prices and there is a surprisingly vibrant nightlife after dark. Red Hook lodging is a great place to find a cold drink, casual dining and party music.
