Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas, USVI: Nice if you can swing it...

Very nice, luxury property; beautiful beach, near Red Hook. Far from the madding Charlotte Amalie crowd--very quiet.

Situated on a lovely beach, with rafts, small catamarans, etc., available; negative edge pool, luxurious rooms, attentive staff. Don't miss the poolside bar, Iguanas. There's a reason for its name...

Best Western Carib Beach: Pedestrain Best Western

We stayed at this hotel on Lindburg Bay, just a stones throw from the airport on St. Thomas, for two nights. It's about all you should expect, I suppose, for a fairly low price ($100/night) while being a stones throw from the water. It's about Motel 6 level quality, service at the hotel was below par for the Virgin Islands, and their "beach" is a sandbox, but for the price it's OK as a spot right at the airport (could easily walk - only a few hundred yards - never heard any planes, though).

Walk to the airport, close to the water, moderate price

Coconut Coast Condos: Lapping waves

Coconut Coast is a small group of condos right on Turner Bay (just south of Cruz Bay). We stayed in a studio - which was nicely appointed for the reasonable price includng a well-equipped kitchenette. From our second floor unit, we enjoyed breakfast every morning yards from the gentle waves of Turner Bay and sunset dinners most evenings (a supermarket is a few minutes drive). The proprietors were friendly and helpful. Definitely hope to stay again someday.

Location right on the rocky beach of Turner Bay.

Bring lots of money

When Traveling through the VI you'll find Hotels to be very expensive $500 and up
there are some less expensive places to stay however for your safty I wouldn't recommend it.
If you go to St John( big * ) hit the camp ground at Cinnimon Beach
its the best beach on St John and you can stay there for about twenty bucks per night
they have some tents on raised platforms to rent that I highly recommend for just a few bucks more
also on St John your Safe no matter where you go or at what time you go there.

We stayed in an open air room...

We stayed in an open air room that overlooked the sea and not another lodging. The accomodations were perfect: roomy, big bed, bathroom room in general and warm and inviting.

Rockefeller's 65' Henkley sailboat was there for excursions day or evening, wow. The day trip included snorkling (diving off the ship) and a delifully prepared meal. We sailed to St. John and Peter's Island, it was a blast.
Then, on another day, the hotel packed 2 baskets of food and wine and a motorboat took us to a deserted island and left us to our own devises, so, well use your imagination!

Other Options: Other Options

Maho Bay $100-200
Other hotels $375+
Rental Villas varies

Gallows Point Resort - The only resort I can recommend. There are only about 20 condos so no big crowds, it is set apart but still walking distance from downtown. The condo owners maintain the rooms comfortably so you'll get a separate bedroom, kitchen, living room with amenities.

Maho Bay - I like their concept of environmental friendliness. They are a bit far away from Cruz Bay but have everything you need on-site. Their beach is public and is very popular. Warning: cruise ship passengers have day excursions here.

Inn at Tamarind Court: Inn at Tamarind Court

$38-$138

This is the only budget accomodation on the island. Everyone who moves here started out at the Tamarind. They have small single rooms with shared facilities and also regualar hotel rooms with private facilites, and they should offer discounts for longer stays. It's basic but clean and convenient. They'll take phone messages for you and offer a free continental breakfast. You can eat at the courtyard restaurant or just have a drink at the bar with the locals.

We stayed in the Gallow's...

We stayed in the Gallow's Point condominiums overlooking St Thomas from the island of St John. They had everything you could ask for in these two story dwellings. All the modern conveniences are provided: fully furnished living quarters with a kitchen, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, cooking pots & pans, utensils, cable TV, phones, and fans.
There was even a six pack of Red Stripe waiting for us in the 'fridge.

As I described above, you have all the modern conveniences of home in a beautiful setting overlooking the Caribbean Ocean.

$375/night but we used priceline.com and got it for $75/night

The main door of the room opened to the outdoors. It made us feel like we were staying in our own private hilltop villa. We slept on the Westin 'Heavenly Bed'. It was so comfortable that we would have never woken up if we didn't have an alarm clock!

Bolongo Bay Beach Club -...

Bolongo Bay Beach Club - Bolongo Bay is fun, casual, friendly and small, but with big resort facilities.

If you like to relax, find a hammock on our palm-lined beach and read, or try everything from sailing, kayaking, snorkeling or wave runners. Make sure you sign up for their famous 'Snorkel Booze Hunt', where they hide bottles in the bay and you go find them! A great way to learn how to snorkel.

Saint Johns : do not...

Saint Johns : do not hesitate...go to The Inn at Tamarind Court !!! It's a great place with sometimes live music in the patio. Building is new, rooms are big and ultra clean with fan or a/c...and rates are very reasonnable as per Virgin Islands standards. The owners are very helpful.

Tortola : We had huge problems trying to find an 'affordable' accomodation...Tortola is definitively not made for 'backpackers'. We ended up in the Sea View Hotel which is not really a good place (small rooms just cleaned, dirty pool in the patio, and noisy outside, with some night visitors such as lizards...funny...) but with a very sympathic lady running the house. It's extremely cheap for Tortola but it's really overpriced if you had to compare with other places in the Carribean.

Because there were 11 of us,...

Because there were 11 of us, we rented a house for the week. It is called Prasanthi. It's located on one of the smaller bays on the island, but because of the tiny size of the island this presented no problems at all.
The house is only rented out on a weekly basis, but the web link has all of its prices.

Prasanthi itself is no longer on the market to visit. However, the company that rented us the house, Carribbean Villa, is still in business. Find their hyperlink below.

While this house can hold up to 12 people, it can be subdivided into upper and lower floors that do not connect, thus making it much easier to house smaller quantities of people. Do note that that bottom floor has a much weaker kitchen and no pool access.

Did not stay there, but of all...

Did not stay there, but of all the resorts we visited The Elysian had the most beautifully landscaped surroundings. It seemed very peaceful and removed.

Rustic beach with palms and watersports although relaxing. You have a sense of having your own private bay.
