We spent a week in St Thomas, renting a 3 bedroom condo at Watergate Villas. The condo was great, rented on vrbo from Leah and Scott Browning. I will post a condo review under Watergate Villas here on TA. Our location on Bolongo Bay was central to everything. The beach at Bolongo is just OK but so many beaches here are great!! I'm definitely glad we rented a car as We explored every day and the rental gave us freedom! We went to many different beaches and swam and snorkeled. It's hard to pick a favorite but Trunk Bay in St John was breathtaking. I would definitely recommend you get groceries at Cost U Less and stay away from Plaza Easy- it was gross! Food Center was much cleaner. We liked the Greenhouse for lunch, happy hour or dinner and Banana Deck in St John. Iggys was fun too. We definitely felt disdain from some of the islanders..not many smiles, hellos, pleases and thank yous. Some folks were nice though! The island is very run down and there's a lot of trash and broken down cars and ramshackle houses. It's a shame it's not cleaner! The beaches make this destination attractive and we did have a wonderful, relaxing vacation!
