If you are looking to just relax this is a place to consider. A small resort with about 80 units arcs around a lovely little beach that is just steps away. The units are more than adequate but not luxurious, each has a private terrace with water view which was great for morning coffee. There are full kitchens should you choose to prepare any snacks or meals. A/C was a little noisy in the sleeping area. Food shopping is best done at the Food Center in the East End if you want familiar US brands. Everything has to be shipped in so be prepared for higher prices than you might expect.There are a few amenities on the property, a very nice pool with swim up bar that also serves basic breakfast and lunch items, small shop for gifts and some necessities, bbq pits, some water sports rentals and small exercise facility. Given small size these were never crowded and more than adequate. The activity director was high energy and will be very helpful in planning anything else you want.There is not a traditional sit down restaurant ( it is planned in future) so a car is a must, otherwise you will taxi everywhere. It is nicely situated between Charlotte Amalie and the East End each is about 15 minutes by car. Bring a few books and your sunscreen kick back and enjoy.

Room Tip: All units are accessed by stairs. The first floor units are closest to beach and pool. Parking is b...

We waited too long and are hoping we can get a couple of rooms this summer. My husband and I have come every year and we love it here. We brought the grandchildren last year and had so much fun. We really hope some who is not able to go this year will post their rooms for rent. Or contact us!

If you want a beautiful quiet beach this is for you. The activity director is a hoot and will bend over backwards for you as well as Mr. Nice Guy, the man you call when you need to get from point a to point b. The pool is amazing and the food and drinks at the pool bar were good. We were shocked at the price of two omelets, a cup of coffee and two momosas, $72.00 WOW! We were told it was because we ordered two meat lovers omelets with veggies on top. So they considered that 2 omelets each, (two meat lovers and two veggie) for a total of 4 omelets - that means they must have charged us about $13.00 or $14.00 an omelets. So buyer beware on the prices. We did tell the staff we were shocked by this but nobody seemed to care. We were suppose to have two condos booked from our time share as we had a couple of friends joining us the day after our arrival. I had the confirmation numbers and documentation from our Resort Company. Blue Beard Beach Club said "no they didn't have two rooms booked or available, only one." I questioned how this could happen as our friends were about to board a plane and join us, and the employee at the front desk said it was not there problem and we needed to contact our Resort company. Our friend ending up staying at another resort. It put a real damper on things. I did call our Resort Company after returning back to the states and they checked into it. The Resort Company did make the reservations, but Blue Beards dropped the ball and only reserved one of the two rooms. So, please call them before you visit to verify they are not inept in this area. The resort is safe. We did have a good time overall. The rooms are not the cleanest. The floors were sandy when we entered the condo. We did need to ask for more towels as they don't provide many. All that being said, we will go back but will make certain we talk to the manager to verify our reservations and we will stop at a grocery store on the way there. The Wyndham lost an opportunity on this one as our friends bought a time share there. We normally bring friends with us on vacation and 8 our the last 10 times our friends have purchased timeshares. The staff needs to know the Wyndham lost huge dollars because an employee did not follow through with a booking.

Stayed at the resort the first week of February. Weather was perfect and are we glad we rented a car. Resort is isolated and if you want to explore, taxi cost would be expensive. Restaurant is under renovation and looks like months away from completion. Being on a time share exchange, the biggest surprise was a $11.00/per person/per day energy charge. Time share owners of this property do not pay this energy fee. Isn't that a double charge to guests? Beach is not a walking beach. Internet service is a pay on a weekly or daily fee. Go to Iggy's, Mim's, Secret Harbor, or into town for free wi-fi. If you are planning on cooking some meals at the facility, shopping for grocerys on your way it. Grocery stores are not convenient. Been on many time share exchanges in the past twenty years and would not stay here again. Beach towel service is refreshed each day from off property. Two days towels were delayed in arriving. If you are going to Magen Bay for the day, get your clean towels early.

After reading an earlier review on Trip Advisor, we decided against a car and booked "Mr. Nice Guy" who provides transportation to a lot of the guests. It was a really good decision as the roads are quite hilly and curvy and the other tourists drive badly trying to figure out the left hand driving. Also the rental car rates and insurance (which you pretty much have to get unless you have a letter from your insurance company) are steep. His rates are the same as the taxis but keep in mind that the charge of $6 to go to Downtown means per person. After a stop at the grocery store (recommended), we were greeted at the resort and told we should come to the orientation the next morning - which we didn't. Therefore we didn't know about the sign up for the BBQ and some other events. Also the resorts in St. Thomas all seem to charge an energy fee - a total rip off. This resort charges $11 per person a day. This made us use all the energy we could to get our money's worth! If they charged for use, it would seem more efficient. The room was nice - we just had a "studio" but it had a full kitchen and living room. The weird thing is that the one bathroom is off the kitchen and the bedroom is on the top level
- loft style. There are 2 steps from the kitchen up to the living room which may not be easy for the elderly. All rooms at the resort face the ocean. The resort is quiet and clean and just what we wanted. A lot of people come here every year. Even though they don't have a restaurant, it works as there always seems to be some type of food and drink available at the pool bar til 7-8 pm. There are omelets for breakfast, Panini's and fries for lunch, Monday night is italian night, all day BBQ on Friday, etc.
Be sure to bring big spray! We got completely bit up our first few nights by no-see-ums.
The resident iguanas are cool. They hide in the trees during the day and all come out around midday to eat and hang around for a couple hours then disappear (they like apple, onion, and banana slices). The resort also has some resident cats but you don't see them til night. They also have a endangered crab area. The resort was "creature" friendly which we liked.
The beach is very private and pretty with accessible lounge chairs and plenty of shade.
For dinners out - go to Iggys for happy hour, then walk down their beach to Mims for all you can eat shrimp Thursday nights. Taxi fare is $24 round trip for 2 people. We used Mr Nice Guy ( you can get his # from the resort) whole time and were very pleased. He will do multiple stops-beach, shopping, dinner in one day. One day we went to St. John and he had a guy on the island who took care of us for the going rate. Great time and we don't repeat vacation locations but would come here again.

My wife and I just got back from our week at Bluebeards. We desperately needed a quiet, relaxing, beach vacation. We got it! How to put this...if your looking for an all-inclusive, luxurious, resort with a nightlife then this is NOT the place for you. However, if your looking for a quiet, laid back, place to hit a great private beach, soak up some sun and read a few books then this is the place for you.

I do wish they had some type of dinner options and are currently buildilng some type of resturant/bar that will open at some point.

I found the gound to be adequate although if you take a look around you some of it could use some touching up. The staff was very friendly and the poolbar had breakfast and lunch options.

We opted to cook a few nights and took the saturday night taxi to the grocery store and stocked up for the week.

I was pleasently suprised by our room, I've read some of the reviews on here and I supposed some of the unit's might not be upgraded, but I guess we got lucky. I would complain that the bed was REALLY hard!

PROTIP: stock up on water, we found the tap to be undrinkable.

Room Tip: ask for 254!

We are here now, I'm writing this sitting on the beach. The staff is very friendly, they bring me whatever I need. When we arrived I asked to be near the beach and she gave me building B. Wonderful location about 15 ft from the sand. If you come stay on builder A or B. The problem is the location , far from everything. You need a car or taxi to get to anything else. We arrived on Saturday and they had a cab to take us to the grocery store at half price of $12.00 round trip. They do have breakfast every morning at the pool bar and sandwiches during the day, no restaurant yet. Tonight. Monday there is an Italian buffet. $25.00 per person. Tomorrow we will go to town by taxi. I choose this ace because I was using an accommodation week from my timeshare .
