I love Caribbean, and I think, I probably visited most of the places. Belize, Cancun, Dominican republic and etc. I usually go for 4 or 5 star all inclusive resorts, and cruises where you don't have to think about anything : food, entertainment essentially, you don't have to think of anything and this time, I decided to do something different. I wanted to try St. Thomas. Everyone is raving about St. Thomas , so I decided to give it a try and now I have to say, that was the best vacation, I ever had.
Beautiful views- first of all, the island looks different, I think it has volcanic origin, so it is surrounded by green mountains and it looks amazing. The condo is right on the beach and the views are amazing. .
Because the island is surrounded by other islands that act as wave breakers, there are no waves. That is why it is great for snorkeling, it has coral reefs, tons of fish that swim right around you and spotted sting ray. I stayed at Sapphire beach condo C-204 unit and the owner left two pairs of professional snorkeling equipment free to use. Since there are no waves, it is a perfect place for water paddling or kayaking. Kayak rental costs $15 per hour.
The water- The water was amazing, it is so clear and warm, you can literally go into the water and stay there for 2 hours. The temperature itself is very comfortable and there is always a little breeze. When I stayed there the temperature was 84 degrees, and we had the doors to the balcony open, and we didn't even have to use air conditioner it was that comfortable.
The condo itself was great, It had new kitchen it had two LCD tvs, with cable channels, including Cinemax . The kitchen comes equipped with electric oven, microwave and big fridge. It has everything you need to cook, pans, plates, cups. The food shopping is relatively nearby, but I took a taxi anyway to Food Court, it is a big store it has a better selection and great prices for liquor. Don't buy anything at the airport their prices about 30% higher.
Overall, like I said it was the best lazy vacation, I ever took. The nature is so beautiful, the water, the ambiance of the place and it was not crowded at all.
I loved the place, I loved the condo, and big thanks to MIchael for providing excellent service and thanks for our best vacation
