Sapphire Beach resort is not a resort. It is a condo complex with a very run down pool area and a beautiful beach with very good snorkeling. Our condo ( rented on VRBO) was in building D overlooking the water and St John in the distance but also overlooking a very run down pool area( the ducks loved swimming in...

Sapphire Beach is the best beach on St. Thomas. Lots of people prefer Magen's Bay beach but that is crowded especially when there are lots of cruise ships in port. I personally don't care for tiptoeing through people and their beach stuff just trying to get to the water. Sapphire is less crowded yet has a beach bar and a...

Just came back from our trip. Wow! I have to admit it was my first time renting a condo from VRBO and I was a little hesitant. I am used to booking hotel rooms for our vacations, so I was not sure what to expect renting a condo from an owner. But I listened to my fellow trip advisors and...

Closest we have ever stayed to the beach. You are literally ON the sand. Fantastic view! Beach is gorgeous. Saw fish snorkeling (not a ton but definitely enough for my kids) Pool is very run down but usable. We have been at the beach the whole time! Best Chicken Sandwich at beach restaurant. Hidden gem away from the cruise ships!...

We recently stayed here and had a wonderful time. I will not repeat everything that some of the previous travelers shared about the condition of the resort. The property has definitely seen better days and is in need of some repairs. I was most disappointed in the pool area which is beautiful as the pictures show but the abandoned bar...

This is our 2nd trip to Sapphire beach, and the location cannot be beat. This is our favorite beach- with amazing snorkeling right off the beach and perfect views of St. John and even BVI Islands. However- be careful who you rent from. We always rent off VRBO or Homeaway.com. Our rooms have been exactly as depicted on those websites....
