Beautiful ground floor condo that walks riight out to the sand of Sapphire Beach! I couldn't ask for a better place to stay. I felt like I was in paradise!

Great location, beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

Great location, cabs are always waiting to take you anywhere. it's a quick ride to Red Hook or take the local safari cab but you will have to walk up a pretty good hill. Beach is good, snorkeling good and good drink service from the bar (they will even meet you partially into the sea and deliver) Snorkel gear, rafts, kayaks, etc. all available for rent from the hut on the beach. Our unit, building A, was in a convenient spot with a great view Only caution is The complex is a little tired, so don't expect super luxury and the pool bar was closed but you're on a gorgeous island so it doesn't matter! Horseback riding with Jerry was fun. Molly Malones has great breakfast.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my two girlfriends booked this condo for a 4 night stay in St Thomas as a bachelorette trip and we could not be more happy with our experience! Juliet was amazing in getting us good info on where to eat and she was always so easy to get in touch with! The condo we were on was right on the beach so we could easily walk to the waterfront and it was steps away from the resort's beach bar, which was delicious! Thank you so much, Juilet! We will be definitely staying there again!

Saphire Beach and Marina

  • 3 of 5

Their grounds are "tired" but our condo was very nice and right on the water. Stayed two years in a row so you know there was a good reason to go back. As long as your realize that it is not a resort but a condo complex, you will find the area absolutely beautiful.

Need to get their act together

  • 2 of 5

Had a wonderful vacation; Sapphire Beach is great but his condo was disappointing.

They advertise a “provisioning service”. Wow, how nice. We e-mailed a list a week in advance. The manager acknowledged receipt and thanked us for not doing it last minute. When we arrived, nothing was there.

Food from previous tenants was left in the unit when we arrived; we had to clean out the cabinets and refrigerator of already open (for who knows how long) cereal boxes, mayonnaise jars, etc. The unit was not very clean when we arrived. Floor was dirty, louvered doors had accumulated dust.

The electric outlet in the bathroom did not work. When we called, the manager told us it had not worked for 3 years (as if somehow that made it OK!?). I assumed that this meant it was some kind of major project. In fact, they finally sent an electrician to fix it and it took him less than 15 minutes. While I appreciated that we could finally use it, I was even angrier that it was so easy to take care of and they simply did not bother.

The kitchen cabinets are relatively new and just fine. But, they did not bother to hook up the under counter lights – they are there, just not connected. The shower had some kind of control to regulate the temperature, presumably for safety. But the result was that we could not take a hot shower. The room divider between the bedroom and the living area does not work; the tracks are rusted out. The safe does not work. After calling we were instructed how to use the key. Why not fix it? One of the dresser drawers had no handle so could not be used. The Wi-Fi in the unit was worse than useless. The information sent to us with username and password was incorrect. It was different on two documents sent to us and both were wrong. We finally discovered the correct password written on the router but what a frustrating waste of time because of their sloppiness. In any event, even after we could connect, the Wi-Fi was pretty useless.

The information materials in the unit are out of date. No clear instructions about TV channels. Nobody seems to clear out stuff left by previous renters.

At the end, all of these things are relatively minor inconveniences, not enough to ruin a truly great vacation, 80 and sunshine every day, sitting on the patio with nothing but sand and the sea in front of you, swimming, snorkeling, SCUBA, sailing. We will return to Sapphire but not to this unit.

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry this guests had a bad experience. We are always ready to respond to any complaints a guest has. We always tell them, after checking in, to notify us right away if anything was not as expected. This guest notified me right away about his having a problem with the outlet not working. We went out the next day, and purchased a nightlight for him to use in the evening in that area. To make him more comfortable about getting up in the night in an unfamiliar place. We do try to be responsive to any particular issue. The outlet in the bathroom has been repaired, but it took 3 different maintenance men to complete this repair. Yes, the last one did fix the issue quite quickly. The safe has instructions on it, but people find it difficult to understand. The safe is not broken and we do have a pass key which works perfectly fine. Condiments in the refrigerator. This is the first time anyone has complained about have mustard, mayo, ketchup, salad dressing , etc in the fridge. I do understand some guests are more picky than other. I have instructed my associate to throw away opened food containers each time she cleans between guests , in the future, to avoid this issue. As far as floors not clean, and louvered sliding doors that separate the bedroom from the living room; the owner has a plan to order new tracks, so the doors slide more easily in the near future. Cleaning of the floors and louvers is being addressed.Repairs have to be scheduled in our down time. We appreciate our guests notifying us of any issues they find uncomfortable. The management team

Great Location - Disappointing Management

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a week at Sapphire Beach. What a wonderful place! Sapphire Beach is beautiful, the resort property is well located to the beach, marina, and Red Hook. It is a snap to get a cab into Red Hook, with taxis normally right on the property--the ride to Red Hook is $4/person. We did not have a car and did not miss having one at all.

The condo is a first floor unit that has been renovated in the past five years, I would guess. The king bed is comfortable and they left ample towels. It has new cabinetry, granite tile counters, stainless sink and frig. There is a two burner cook top and a convection microwave. There is not an oven, dishwasher or washer & dryer. It did not bother us not having them--I mention only as a point of information.

From a maintenance perspective we were disappointed and informed the management. There were several missing light bulbs, the safe was inoperable, the phone out of order, the Wi-Fi never worked long enough to use, icemaker not hooked up, the divider would not move, there were cockroaches, and the outlet in the bath did not work(meaning I blew my hair dry using the microwave as a mirror). In general, the property was just not clean. When informed, the manager had the cleaning person come to replace light bulbs and to do a "deep clean" of our kitchen. Apparently--according to management, the outlet in the bath hasn't worked for several years. She responded to my second email the day before we left that the small key on my key ring was an override key to my safe(who knew that if you pry off the cover to your safe there is a lock?)

None of these things will ruin a trip--and they didn't ruin ours. They were just minor annoyances. I mention this to level set the expectation of those who will come after us. At the rate we paid, we had other choices--and looked at other condos while we were there for the week. Sapphire Beach is a great place to be!

Owner's Response: We were sorry to hear that this guest felt we were unresponsive to her complaints. We always respond immediately to our guests when they have an issue. We had our service person go over the next morning to take care of the roach problem and had never had a guest complain of them before. We took care of the outlet in the bathroom right away for our next guests. All is in working order inside the condo and current guests seem happy. Glad this guest let us know these things so we could take care of them for future guests.
