A wonderful resort with a staff to match! Janine, the concierge gave us the name of a wonderful taxi service to us (Larry Grell’s -phone number is: 340-227-8639) as well as the Island Jeep Tours! Her recommendations were perfect! Deva was wonderful and made sure we had the perfect room! The beach, pool and activities were great to relax and enjoy the wonderful weather!

This is our home property timeshare but we have not been back since the hurricane damage a few years ago. I had read a few negative reviews and was mentally prepared but we were all pleasantly surprised and very pleased with everything the resort has to offer. Our family of 8, including 2 grandkids will have great memories of the friendly staff at the activity center to the bellman who joked with the grandkids. Onika from guest relations worked with me to get adjoining units as well as making sure our deliveries from Amazon were secure. We preordered groceries from Moe's and when we arrived, Jeff graciously made sure all of our packages, luggage, groceries and gear were delivered to our rooms. When we had a leak in the kitchen, within 10 minutes of our call to maintenance, someone was there and fixed the leak. The staff did a great job keeping the beaches,pool area and bathrooms clean and well maintained. You were given beach towels to last mid week, but there were always towel covers available at any time at the pool. And the units had washers and dryers if you really wanted clean beach towels daily. Some reviews complained about taking 3 elevators to the pool..the resort is built into the hillside and taking 3 elevators was really no inconvenience. And we noticed that anytime any staff member was on the elevator, they would relinquish the elevator to the guests. The grandkids loved the poolside activities and the people there made them feel special. We ate at the Sunset Cove for several meals and while the menu was limited, the portions were ample and the food very good. The Marketplace had great breakfast pastries but you had to get there early for the good stuff, which my hubby did. Our family had a great experience here and our only negative was the kitchen cabinets were a little worn..haha.

First time to St Thomas. Considered using a vrbo, but so glad we stayed here with resort amenities. Poolside entertainment was great, especially “After Irma” singers. Great having water activities right at the resort, VI Cat excursion, night kayaking, snorkeling right in front of the hotel (with your own snorkel gear), pool/beachside bar and grill, floating pad in the water. Enjoyed listening to the evening music from my balcony, yet quiet when door was closed. Beautiful sunsets from balcony every night. Close up views of cruise ships coming into port. Warning if you go with young children, alot of heavy drinking in the pool with vulgar language by guests.

After reading some of the reviews I wasn’t sure what to expect and must say this place was totally amazing. It’s a short ride from the airport to the Vacation Club and taxis are plentiful at the airport. Our room was not yet ready when we arrived so we stored our bags and went down to the pool and ate. We were assigned to the St. John building, 3rd floor room 531. So many people concerned on these reviews about the view. Let me say this room had an incredible view. We also loved the view behind the room on the hillside. It was beautiful seeing the iguanas and hummingbirds in the trees and hearing the coquis. Also, this is a Marriott Vacation Club, part of their time share group - which we are owners. It’s a villa and our room had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, living room and dining area, full washer and dryer. There is no room service because it’s not a hotel so don’t expect it. Also villas are only made up every few days unless you request it for a charge. As far as check in and check out all vacation clubs have the same rules regarding those times and they cannot be changed. Your Marriott Bonvoy does not carry over here either so don’t expect an “upgrade”. I read reviews complaining about all these things but it’s a vacation club so please don’t fault the property for being something they are not. As far as the elevators go, we did take 3 elevators to the pool deck and it’s not a big deal. They are fast and a non-issue. The pool is a decent size and very nice with an infinity side and a slide. The beach is just steps away. Beautiful area and we enjoyed seeing the fish and just relaxing. We never had issues with finding pool or beach chairs. As far as service all the employees were super nice and friendly. We especially loved Yvonne the concierge and the man who tended to the beach area in the mornings- I am so sorry I cannot remember his name- who we spoke to in the mornings raking the beach. He was so kind and lovely. We ate twice at the Sunset Grill on property and both times it was delicious. Some evenings they had live music. I have nothing negative to say at all about the property. I loved every minute of it and hope to return someday. Thanks to everyone for a beautiful stay.

My family and I stayed at a 2bedroom/2bath villa. It was like we had our own little apartment. There was a full kitchen, washer/dryer, dinning room and living room. The primary room had a huge garden tub and nice sized shower with double sinks. The secondary bedroom had 2 queen sized beds a bathroom and a balcony. We LOVED IT! We were directly across the street from the bar & grille, pool, and beach. The food is good and they have themed nights. The food is resort pricing though. The bellmen come pick you up from your room in ATVs and take you to the front desk where they have taxis on standby. Everywhere we went was $10-$12/ person. The views were perfect an we would definitely recommend!

Vacationed here for a week with extended family, so GLAD we chose Marriott's Frenchman's Cove! Beautiful resort, attentive front desk, helpful concierge! Our villa was tastefully well-appointed, spacious, with incredible views from our balconies! The pool & beach can be underestimated from pictures, in fact they were both completely wonderful, could not ask for more. Never had trouble getting chairs. Great snorkeling right on the property beach! Nice to have the Sunset Cove Restaurant on site, food is excellent! VI CAT activities easy access from property dock. Proximity to Charlotte Amalie & airport a plus. We did visit Margaritaville properties & Ritz, happy that we chose Marriott's Frenchman Cove! We will be back, and look forward to exploring the newly renovated Marriott Reef (Westin?) after it opens, which will extend the "Marriott Campus" here.

The wait staff was the most racist I have ever met in all my travels. They treated us like terribly. Me and my family are white and you could feel the resentment in almost every interaction. Do NOT go to this place. AWFUL experience. Beautiful place, but the people are awful. Never felt racism like that in my life.

First time in St Thomas but will not be the last. We spent 5 days at the Frenchman’s Cove…a graduation trip for my twins. The room was updated and overlooked the beautiful blue waters. We spent most of our time during the day on the beach at the resort but also went on the VI cat snorkeling excursion and took a ferry to explore St. John. Nights consisted of 2 dinners off the property. One was at Mim’s and the other at Prime… both excellent! The resort has their own taxi services waiting at the lobby. We had the best experience with our driver- Mr. Lee. He would take us to our locations and pick us up when requested. Best trip- excellent resort-

Hotel suites are clean but dated. We stayed for 7 nights and had a 2BR suite for 5 and we had plenty of room. Yes you have to take several elevator rides to get to the pool but I'm not sure what people expect since the resort is practically on the side of a mountain. We had to take 2 elevators, no big deal. The pool and beach area are nice and there is no towel service as mentioned by others so don't forget to bring your towels provided in the rooms. $15 towel exchange seems kind of excessive but every room has washer and dryer so I had no issues. Couple of negative things about the resort. There is no restaurant on the property. There is a place that has servers and attempts to provide meals but it is horrendous and Marriott needs to do better for their guests. We had lunch the 1st day while waiting for our room and never had another meal there. It's really embarrassing for a Marriott. There also seemed to be a really low level of concern that the resort was clean and kept in the best visible condition. Employees just went through the motions. The same garbage was strewn throughout the hallways and on the property the entire week we were there. I'm a MVC owner and while this is decent resort on St Thomas it's far and away one of the worst maintained propertues that I've stayed at as an owner. If I come back to the island I wouldn't stay here given the price they charge. Just my opinion
