We decided to stay at Frenchman's Reef, having initially booked the Ritz Carlton, but cancelled when they tried to charge my credit card for the whole stay two months before we left, and that's at a pay later price ! How glad we were that we did. Despite being such a big hotel, except in the foyer, you are never...

The highlight of our trip to St. Thomas was the NIGHT KAYAKING at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef. It was such an amazing experience because you can bring your kids. We had our 9 year old and our 4 year old and they loved every minute of it. They handed out glowing bracelets and necklaces. The guides helped everyone see different...

We stayed at the Morningstar part of the resort in March 2017. Morningstar is a separate part of the hotel, down at the beach. The main part of the hotel is up a steep climb; however, there is a shuttle that runs between the two all day long. The rooms in the Morningstar are quite nice- air conditioned and comfortable....

We stayed in the main building A on the 5th floor overlooking Port Charlotte Amalie. The views from our room and around the entire resort were stunning. Our room was just above the bar/patio located off the lobby. They had live entertainment and karaoke on the Friday & Saturday nights we stayed there which made it very loud in our...

Overall score: 4.4/5 Pros: great location and scenery; restaurant choices; pools. Cons: fitness gym; no hotel shuttle; hallways a bit shabby This Resort was ideal for our five day rest and respite at St. Thomas. It is placed on the cliffside above Morningstar Bay. A set of stairs connects the resort to a lovely white sand beach (Morningstar beach) and...

We stayed there for 4 days 3 nights. Have a nice view of the sea and easy access to the morning star beach. The room was ok--clean, big tv, 2 bottles of complimentary water, basic toiletries but no shower cap and q-tips. Food was good but it's overpriced. Breakfast is NOT free. For $500 a night, I expect free breakfast...

I am a Silver member and although I don't travel as much as some, I travel enough to know when a property is well managed and when it is not. Both Morning Star and the Frenchman's property were a disappointment. If you take the time to read the other TripAdvisor's comments, you will get a real feel for the consistent...
