Bluebeard's Castle Resort
Reviewed 10 July 2012

Lovely, comfortable rooms. Beautiful views. Good restaurants on site. Only negative was bathroom plumbing--definitely could have used some maintenance. Toiles barely flushed and one stopped working the first night.Overall, fun place to stay.

I will return! This is a rci property, so no daily housekeeping, but they will give you whatever you need. Huge rooms. Heart for a family of four. Three restaurants on the property. Great location. Make sure you go to Spy Glass in St Johns for the fried keylime pie!!!!!

The pros:
Beautiful views of St. Thomas, very nicely landscaped, rooms were clean and recently updated. We stayed in Villas I for our honeymoon and were impressed with how spacious it was. Very large living area, huge bedroom, 2 bathrooms, small kitchen (no oven, just a stove). It was great to have a kitchen to make some meals in the room as food prices are outrageous everywhere on the island (even the super market). Of the 3 restaurants onsite we frequented Room With a View for their happy hour - food and service were great. Steve the bartender was super informative and helpful about things to do in the area. The pool is a good size and very refreshing. We went off-season so it was very quite and we had the place to ourselves for the most part.

The cons:
Staff are not overly friendly or helpful; VERY disappointed in the concierge- she was not at all informative about excursions, restaurants, or things to do in the area. The very basic information she gave we could get out of a travel brochure. If it wasn’t for the great bartenders we met at Room with a View or Hotel 1829 we wouldn’t have known what to do or where to go.
No room service - no a big deal but you have to make your own bed and clean up yourself
Not much night life/minimal activities onsite - you need to go off site for entertainment and beaches and they don't provide any shuttle service. It's quite a hike up the hill but do-able if you're in shape.
Roosters wake you up at 6am but it does add to the island charm.

Room Tip: Book in the renovated rooms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Bluebeard's Castle is an historic property dating back to the 1600's. The resort occupies an entire hilltop with spectacular views overlooking the harbor and town of Charlotte Amalie. Its signature red rooftops are among the first sights for arriving cruise passengers.The resort includes a centuries-old fortress bearing the name "Bluebeard," after the infamous pirate, and check-in takes place in the former residence of the Danish governor of the island. This tropical paradise is the perfect place for a private getaway as it is set on a secluded hilltop and overlooks the harbor of St. Thomas. Bluebeard's Castle is centrally located in the most desirable part of the island with world class shopping minutes away. With only a short drive from some of the most popular beaches in the Caribbean where you can enjoy boating, scuba diving, snorkeling and windsurfing. The island itself offers a wonderful assortment of duty-free shopping, world-class restaurants (including the top-rated ROOM WITH A VIEW on location!), hot night spots, and a variety of local flavor to satisfy every taste. This resort features history, breathtaking views, and easy access to town. Beaches are literally minutes away so you can visit them all including easy ferry rides to St. John and the British Virgin Islands (Tortola and Virgin Gorda). You will see why owners at the resort are passionate about their units. It is this passion that will once again be the reason that Bluebeard's Castle will become a sought after destination resort. Many lucky RCI members will take advantage of this now! The resort is in the midst of a historic multi-million dollar remodel that will change all that you have heard. The proof is found in our regular maintenance reports as well as our news and picture sections. Also, schedules of on-resort dining are now posted in these reports. Owners are excited about what the future holds and you should be as well. Spread the word. ... more   less
