Been There, Loved It

We have been to Bluebeard's twice now (November 2007, Christmas 2008) and are returning tomorrow to spend Easter 2011 there. We liked the peace and simplicity of the resort so much that we purchased a timeshare in it. First we bought a studio, then upgraded to a one-bedroom. We love the pool particularly the swim up bar with it's great hamburgers and our daughter likes the "Bubblegum Smoothies". I can't wait to see how it has been upgraded and spruced up. The beach is awesome!! I spend hours in the 80+ degree water and snorkel to my heart's content. We love bbqing our meals in the provided facilities. We have gone both without renting a car and with renting a car. The van shuttle service my Mr. Nice Guy is dependible and safe. Plus the hotel shuttle takes you into town to get food only a couple of times in the week, and you only have about an hour, but it works. Once we get groceries, we're set and find it convenient to make our meals.

We LOVE going over to Coki Beach where the colorful fish come right to the water surface to eat french fries from your fingers!!!! Very cool. The Ocean Aquarium is nice for families and kids. We also take our rented car over to St. John on the ferry from Red Hook. Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay are some of the most specacular beaches. We plan on seeing the other side of St. John this time.

Yep, this is a no-frills resort. I do wish there was no smoking at the pool bar. It's gross to have to smell that while out in the fresh air. We will miss the restaurant, but hope the swim-up bar still serves food. The resort is clean, quiet, and safe. Our daughter always makes friends and has kids to play volleyball in the pool, chess on the oversided chessboard, and swim with. I hope they have some sort of Easter things going on, but if not we'll make our own fun.
Enjoy this little gem.

This was the best vacation I have ever embarked upon and my stay at Bluebeard's was a large part of it. We happened to be staying in one of the buildings where the rooms had not yet been renovated but the friends that we went with got one of the newer rooms. It didn't matter either way because we were never in our room but just to be accurate,our room was fairly dated. The air conditioner was leaky and blew hot air onto the balcony. The colors on the walls, couch and curtains were pretty 80's. The bed was creaky and old looking and the windows needed to be replaced. We had a view of the ocean from our room.

Our friends room had been updated and did not have any of the issues that we had with ours. There was construction on the room below us that would have bothered me if I wasn't in paradise but it has to be done at some point during someone's vacation if they are going to fix everyone's woes about the outdated rooms. So all of the building renovations will be done within the year.

With that being said, let me talk about the great. Unlike the other Wyndham which is located in town, this Wyndham is off the beaten path a little. Unlike the other Wyndham which allows beach access to everyone, this one does not. So, when the cruise ships come in and the beach real estate is scarce, you have it all to yourself. At night, when you want to sneak away for some late night beach intimacy or a skinny dip in the pool, you will likely be alone instead of having that creepy guy in the corner looking at you.

For the kids, the "Cat Cafe" ensures that the cats roaming the premises are fed. It also keeps the iguanas a little more safe. The crabs in the crab village pop out on occasion but are generally scared of humans. You can't spear them and throw 'em on the grill because they are endangered and you wouldn't want to anyway because they're really interesting to have around.

The beach has perfect and the water offers great snorkeling because of the reduced traffic with it being a private beach. Sea Turtles, Rays and a variety of fish are available for viewing. My girlfriend and I made a few late night trips out there to be alone and stare at the stars. It was all very serene.

The hotel is also located between to two main cities on the island so it is easy to get to either but I highly. highly, HIGHLY suggest renting a car. It will save you money in the long run and make getting around much easier. Just remember to stay left and think a little before making your turns. And just because it's legal to drink and drive, doesn't mean you should get tanked and be an idiot on the road. They are very windy and one accident can create major delays.

In conclusion: The renovated rooms are great. And even though the older ones are a little dated, it shouldn't matter because paradise is outside the door and Bluebeard's has one of the best beaches on the island.
