“Bargain on the Beach at Sapphire Bay”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

My wife an I stayed in B-11 the second week in June and we were totally satisfied. The condo was very clean, and has very nice furnishings. The kitchen and pantry are very well stocked. The walls are decorated with art everywhere you look. It was very nice having the washer and dryer. The cloths line and hose out back came in very handy. The grounds are very well kept and beautiful with fruit trees and flowering shrubs. The lagoon attracts all kinds of wildlife. The beach was absolutely wonderful with white sand with warm crystal clear water. The snorkeling right off the beach was spectacular. We saw all kinds of corals, fish, turtles, and rays. For me it was a dream come true. Red Hook is a mile or less away. There are stores, restaurants, and a grocery store to buy food to take back to the condo. We like Fish Tails the best. You can also board a ferry there to check out other islands. In conclusion, The owners are very nice to deal with. The are honest and caring people. You can't go wrong if you choose B-11 Bargain on the Beach!

Pros.
Beautiful beach
Chairs on beach
Shade at beach
Great snorkeling
Good location
Landscaping is beautiful
Cons.
Our unit was nasty
Our unit had bugs
Our unit had very uncomfortable beds they claim to have memory foam mattress. Beds are broken
Our unit didn't have a comfortable place to set in the living room area
The owner claimed that the unit sleeps 8 no way it could. The unit has a king bed, a queen and a sofa mattress that isn't usable. Bugs!
This was my families second stay at the Crystal Cove and the last. We had such good memories of our last stay. I was told to get the good units to call The manager. It didn't help we probably got the worst one. I talked with one of the ladies the work cleaning at crystal cove she told me she would not stay there. Enough for me.

The grounds are beautiful. Beautiful flowers everywhere. The beach is spectacular. Beautiful blue water. They have breach chairs to use while you're at the beach. I was told the five shop should be opening in a week, so that will help regarding bathrooms, fresh water showers and amenities.

We traveled with friends who were staying at Sapphire Beach Resort, a five minute beach walk from Crystal Cove. By far we had the best sandy beach. We spent the days on our beach which was truly amazing. Always a breeze, the snorkeling right from the beach was outstanding. Saw sea turtles, rays, tons of fish, beautiful coral, barracuda, starfish. Water was perfect temp for us…refreshing but so nice to stay in. Shade trees provided a nice break when we needed it…just had to pull our chairs under. Diane was our beach attendant and took care of getting our chairs every morning. People were super friendly and grounds are well maintained. We stayed in A16, a studio in A building and it was just steps to the beach. We will be back!

Room Tip: Going through VRBO was perfect.

We just returned from another great trip to Crystal Cove - Sapphire Beach. Stayed in A building booked thru Dave at bestbeach.com, excellent rental. Dave treats us like old friends when we book and Norma his on site manager always takes good care of us. Many hours at Sapphire Beach with excellent snorkeling on reefs on the left and right, and plentiful sea turtles in the center sea grass. Also snorkeled at Lindquist Beach up the road a few times, excellent reefs. Found some new restaurants like Cheers Mate at Pools & Pavilions (best deal on fish/chips on Friday night and super friendly staff and cook) and ate at our old standby Mafolie Restaurant, best view of Charlotte Amalie. Went to St. John one day and excellent snorkeling at Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Beach. Drove to Coral Bay, not worth the trip, not much there. Cruz Bay has much more shopping and restaurants. Already looking forward to another visit in the future.

Crystal cove is a great buy! Affordable and spacious. The rooms aren't brand new but who vacations for the rooms? The views were Amazing and we were within feet of a beautiful private beach! I recommend this property if you really want to get a feel for the VI, unlike a secluded resort this property was close to the nearby city of Red Hook and close to lots of water activities and other VI destinations. I recommend taking the safari for $1 to town it will save you a lot of money on taxis plus it added to the trip. The woman at the front desk was sweet and helpful, just make sure to ask for snorkeling gear and borrow it and explore your own private beach. I will be back!!

We purchased a Groupon for a 6 day, 5 night stay and were very pleased! The condos are perfectly situated on Sapphire Beach and about a mile away from "downtown" Red Hook and the ferry station. This means that you have quick access to a nice, calm beach that doesn't get too much traffic and a quick, convenient ride downtown to eat or catch the ferry to another island. The grounds itself are very neat, clean and gated. Everyone we passed was very nice and welcoming. We stayed in condo B-2. While, yes, the condos aren't brand new - the condo we stayed in was very nice for what we needed- which was just a decent roof over our heads for the duration if our trip. It was spacious with two beds and two baths, enough comfortable space for my friend and I. I suggest walking up the driveway to the main road to take an open air taxi into town. It costs $1 per per person. There is one restaurant on the lot and a swimming pool but we didn't try either so I can't give an opinion,
