This condo had awesome views of the ocean and sunrises, and was right next to the pool. Everything needed was available - snorkeling gear, beach towels, dishes, etc. We did have a lot of mosquitoes in our condo (not outside) that needs to be fixed. This is only reason rated a 4 instead of 5 stars.
Sapphire Beach Bar & Grill had good food, but was only open 10a-6pm daily. Gift shop and breakfast shop opened at 7am and had many breakfast choices.
Sapphire Beach has good swimming and snorkeling. There are rocks for the first 5 feet entering the water on the beach, but sand thereafter.
Taxi from condo to Red Hook is $4 pp, $2 if you walk up the hill and catch the open air bus/taxi. Roads are very narrow and hilly, plus drive on left side of road. Taxi's are plentiful and convenient.
I would highly recommend going to St Johns since it has a lot to do - Beaches, Hiking, & Shopping. Maho Bay has great snorkeling, seen many fish, turtles, rays, and even a nurse shark near the coral.
Food is expensive! If grocery shopping, I would suggest purchasing a membership to Price Mart (Like a Costco) as it will pay for the $35 yearly membership in one trip.
Great to hear guests have a great time and enjoy the island. Insects can be a problem and the mosquitoes inside the condo has been addressed and resolved by the association. We try to make sure our guests are comfortable and concerns taken care of.
Beautiful place and great beach!
We spent the week looking for better snorkeling, but always ended up at the condo beach, sapphire. The stay was everything we expected. Some things are still being reconstructed from the hurricane, but still in great shape.
Our unit was typical you may find in a major resort area. First floor walk in the front door and a bathroom is on the right, then walk thru bedroom area, then kitchen/living area. Walk out the back door and find a small covered patio with view of pool area straight ahead. Beach area is about 100ft to left. Marina about 100ft to right.
Everything worked in our unit. King bed was okay.... mattress is very soft and spongey. Also mesquites are very annoying.
Condo was great. The pool was ok with the eyesore of a past pool bar and falling apart gazebo .
Sapphire Beach was amazing.
We have been going to St. Thomas since 2004 and were amazed at the views and decided to buy the condo. The hurricanes of 2017 devastated the islands, but they came back rather quickly. However, due to a shortage of contractors and supplies some areas still need attention mainly non tourist areas.
The restaurant/bar and snack bar (about 100 yds. North of the condo) reopened after renovations were complete in Dec 2018. The owner hired a crew from Chicago since they could not find contractors on island. There are plans to reopen the pool bar in 2019, but island time is real and not sure when it will happen. We have been there several times and have not really paid attention to the pool bar. The views of the BVI, St John distract from the pool bar. We have had 50+ guests since the pool bar was damaged and have not had one comment about the damage. I guess the views of the Caribbean are focused on first.
Best view on the island.
Great condo. Good fit for 2 people. Good snorkeling. Steve is available and helpful if needed Had an AC problem, which was resolved as quick as possible. Gave it 4 stars because pool area including pool huts, have not been maintained. Parking lot has lots of big holes. Looks like the Condo association has not maintained the outside of the complex.
Thanks for your stay!
The association is responsible for the exterior of the buildings and the AC units, owners are responsible for the interiors. The exterior of the buildings have been completely redone over the past 4 years. The AC unit went out when the guest first arrived and the association found out they had to replace the entire compressor which took a couple of days.
The parking lot, grounds, pool hut and all things that are not part of the physical buildings is owned by a private individual who developed the property. The association is working with him to try to get him to maintain his property. It has been a long process but the out buildings are starting to be improved. There is a new bar/restaurant that opened Dec 2018 and a new shop that sells supplies, breakfast items and smoothies that opened the same time.
Amazing perfect vacation!!
This condo is everything advertised and more. The view IS TO DIE FOR and a perfect location to enjoy the island. I was in love from the second we arrived to now, even after I’ve arrived back home. I did not want to leave. The bed is comfortable, the AC cool, the views are perfection and the ocean and the pool are steps away! Just absolutely perfect! We will be back for sure!
We always are glad our guests enjoys the condo as much as we do....this response is shared by other guest that have stayed with us.
Sapphire Beach is located on the prestigious East End of St. Thomas with exciting island night life and restaurants close by in Red Hook. Rated as one of the top views and beach on the Island of St. Thomas. Several other beaches and shopping within minutes away by Taxi, ferry, or boat excursions. Sure to be one of the best Caribbean vacations ever!
