We went to this hotel to spend the day since we were on a cruise. We reserved a room and paid for it thinking this is a private beach resort. When we got to the hotel, the beach was filled with with other cruise passengers who did not pay for the resort. The room we were given was on the...

Good day, I'm sorry you did not enjoy your few hours with us, but I'm happy to hear management handled the situation swiftly and to your liking. All of the beaches in the Virgin Islands are public so everyone is welcome to enjoy our gorgeous white-sand beach. Yes, we do get a lot of business on cruise ship days as...

We spent two days here at the end of a BVI sailboat charter. It is a wonderful location. Right on the bay and the rooms have balconies looking out onto the bay. The room was clean and had all the standard amenities. There is a nice restaurant on site and again, tables looking out onto the beautiful bay. While we...

We spent 7 days here just last week! We have spent 11 days oceanfront at the Sheriton Waikiki before, and we liked the Emerald Beach Resort better. It is more relaxed, uncrowded, comfortable, and absolutely beautiful! If you are looking for a mellow relaxing get away without the snobby crowd or overpriced ammenities, this is the place to visit.

Pleasant staff - very helpful concierge got us a good deal on a car rental. Our room was so close to the water, that we could hear the waves even with the sliding door to the balcony closed. The hotel was walkable from the airport. It was an unusually warm day for December, so it wasn't a comfortable walk in...

Compared to other places on the island, there's nothing special here - except the ability to lounge in the ocean and watch airplanes take off. Bar is average, rooms are great (although I worried about the proliferation of notices about safety and the lock bar on the sliding glass door). I second the comment about availability of towels in the...

We loved this place and it's truly beachfront location. The pool was to die for and it had a great restaurant. We spent so much time relaxing on the beach after concerts and getting drinks at the bar. Wonderful comfortable rooms and a great start to the vacation.

The place is intimate and we felt safe. Our preteen girls loved playing on the beach. The only problem was a towel shortage, but the staff was absolutely lovely. I recommend this resort for families and couples. All rooms were ocean view.
