As beautiful as Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina are, the use of the word resort would tend to indicate something else. The amenities that you may find at all-inclusive are not available at Sapphire. This is a no-nonsense, laid back, beachfront condo with the waters edge just feet away. There are no tennis courts or spas. There is 1 small, beachy restaurant on the other end of Sapphire for drinks and some pub food. Each condo is individually owned and managed by that person. Sapphire does have the most amazing snorkeling and marine life. The sunrises over St. John with unobstructed views are breathtaking. It is a peaceful, zen-like experience. If this sounds good to you then this is your vacation spot! Sapphire Beach resort and marina are situated on the eastern end of the island. Just minutes to the town Red Hook where you can find fine dining, shopping, a grocery store, sports bar, pizza, and live music. For the adventurous type there are many attractions including Blackbeard's Castle, sky tram, underwater submarine tour, and a hands-on aquarium. There are many boat excursions and ferries to the BVI and other islands for a day hike. So much to do and see or just feel the breeze and sun in this awesome island oasis.

My brother and his family have been coming to Sapphire Beach for many years and convinced us to join him this year. I could barely contain myself when I saw the view and put my feet in the water(as angel fish swam around me). My 6 year old went snorkeling and saw sea turtles and sting rays in their natural habitat. My 12 year old met some new friends; they played volleyball and swam together joining in an immediate friendship. I knew I found paradise and a place to call my own.
Great restaurants and shopping nearby. Local attractions including an aquarium with hands-on exhibits. Safe environment for families with children. Many weddings have been accommodated on the 'point' overlooking the coral reef.
In response to this 1 bad review after 3 years of renting, my belief is that this couple are miserable to begin with. They stayed 2 hours. They never gave Sapphire a chance, and experienced its TRUE beauty. When they arrived there were keys in the door and the cleaning lady was next store. If they had bothered to bring a copy of their contract which contains all the pertinent information, they would have know this. I never pretended to be the Ritz- Carlton. This is a quiet waterfront condo that has its own security staff. The water is pristine with a thriving reef in front. Sapphire is a very special place. I am not sure what these renters standards are?! I am down there every 4 to 6 months. I bring quality towels, linens, knives etc. Just read all my past reviews and you will see how awesome Sapphire really is. Sincerely, Lee the owner
My boyfriend and I had the absolute best vacation experience. The condo had everything we needed, including snorkeling equipment, plenty of beach towels and cooler bags. Being right on the water, we got to watch the amazing sunrise every morning. We loved sitting by the beautiful pool, but what made it even better was that our condo was only a few yards away which was really convenient if we needed beverages or snacks. We also walked down and enjoyed lunch at the beach bar. Another plus about this condo is how great the location is to everything else. The ferry to St. John and Tortola is five minutes down the road in Red Hook. We also shopped at Moes grocery store and ate at several of the restaurants located there. There were many shops run by the local people as well as more touristy gift shops which gave me many shopping options! This way I was able to avoid the cruise boat traffic that exists in Charlotte Amalie. Lastly, the owner Lee was very helpful and easy to contact. She was able to send us maps and brochures and answered any questions we had quickly and thoroughly. Connie, the onsite property manager was also a delight. It was nice to have someone available incase we really needed anything. It was a beautiful condo and I have already booked with Lee for next year!
We enjoyed our stay at the Sapphire Beach Resort immensely. The condo unit was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed the ocean view, the beautiful white sandy beach and having access to snorkeling close by. We would recommend this condo to anyone.
Thank you Lee and Connie, for making our stay so enjoyable. The new restaurant and beach bar were a great bonus to the property. We also enjoyed the pool overlooking the ocean. Thank you again for all your help.
Great view of water. Parking lot not paved and full of ruts. Hard to find parking space. Pool bar was closed.
overall the stay was good and the condo was very nice and in good condition. You do have to get your own bathroom supplies - so be sure to bring those with you including toilet paper.
The reports of Deferred Maintenance on the overall property condition are still applicable - I did not see any construction work during my stay so it may take several years for the overall property to be repaired. i booked 6 months in advance when i read the reviews on deferred maintenance and expected them to be substantially complete by the time we stayed there.
one other comment specific to the condo - the photo view of the beach is not its current condition - the beach is all rocks and gravel in front of the condo. but still a great location and view.
We have been to STT almost 20 yrs., renting at Sapphire Beach Resort. Lee is the best host and answers our every need promptly. Could not ask for better. We love the ground floor unit with easy access to beach and pool.
As far as this area is concerned: best snorkeling on the island less than 100 yds away, very quiet beach at our door, lovely patio for sunning and a roof to help when the occasional sun shower creeps up. Snorkelers see rays swimming and jumping out of the water, many reef fish and turtles.
At the other side of the resort (within 400 yds) is a white sand beach with crystal clear water and gradual sandy bottom. A fresh water swimming pool is 200 yds away with great views.
Next door is a marina from which fishing charters, parasailing, sail boats or jet skis can be rented. Everything you can imagine to make a great vacation.
Dollar bus is short walk so there is really no need for a car.
Have already made plans to come back.
