“Great Staff!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Missed flight home and had to stay over night. This hotel is across the street from STT Airport 3 minute walk and The rate was low. The staff were nice. The property is older and I agree with other reviewer that it was probably a great location years ago. Never the less it served our need well for our 1 night stay. At check in they gave us a coupon for 2 free rum drinks. The bartenderJudith and Maura the food and beverage director are great. There were other persons at the bar who also had to layover and we all sat around talking eating and having great drinks. The outdoor bar area is adjacent to the pool and beach and is beautiful with stone walkways and awesome nightime views of the bay. They also had have a pool table that son really enjoyed with other guest. Not 5 star but we had a wonderful experience here even after being at Westin St. John.

We booked this hotel as a package rate for our honeymoon through priceline, we saw that there was an upgrade option for a corner room with a garden and ocean view so we chose that and were very excited to enjoy our stay.
We checked in on a Tuesday afternoon around 4:30pm, check in is supposed to be at 4pm, our room was not ready yet and we were asked to wait. About 20 minutes later we were told the room was ready so we went up and as we opened the door to a room in the middle of the hotel I felt like we walked into a closet. There was just enough room the there for a bed and you took 2 steps to the window where the balcony was. We didnt even make it all the way in and we turned around and walked straight back down to the desk. The very rude woman at the front desk said that those were the only rooms they had and all of them were like that. I showed her what we booked and she informed me that they have no rooms that have an ocean view and a garden view. She said if we want an ocean view we have to be on the 2nd floor and if we want a garden view we had to be on the first. So we asked about a corner room seeing if maybe that would be any bigger, she let us see one but it wasn't clean yet so if we wanted it we would have to wait. It was a little bit bigger so we decided to go with that one and waited again for it to be ready. We were so tired from the 14hrs of travel that we decided to eat at the restaurant that night.
That was our favorite thing about the hotel, the food was good, the people were awesome and the service was great. Even if you don't stay at the hotel I would recommend going to the Oceanside Bistro.
During our 6 night stay there we had no water twice, half of the hotel was out of power once, the ice machines didn't work, and there was no hot water for the shower. The staff was not friendly and very rude and they don't mention that you have to pay a resort fee of $10 per days plus tax. I would not call this a resort in any way, shape or form, and I would NOT recommend this to anyone.

A much older hotel that in its day I'm sure it was quite nice. However, by today's standards it leaves a lot to be desired. Water pressure in the shower was just a drip and it took forever to rinse off. I did have a nice view of the bay tho and was able to get some nice photos of a sunrise. I hired a taxi for a couple sight seeing and photo trips around the island and was charged a very fair rate. There's a lot to see as it is a beautiful place to visit. The color of the water is unbelievable and with all the islands I recommend going if you can. You'll will not regret it. If you have time, a visit to St John is recommended. The ferry ride gives you a chance to see many islands in the area.

Thank you for both reviewing and staying with us at Carib Beach Resort. It sounds like you have a lovely time on our island and enjoyed its beauty and the many other things St. Thomas has to offer.

Carib Beach Resort was built in the early 1940’s originally as a military hospital. While converting it into a hotel years ago, they wanted to keep some of that historic charm. To this day, we want to embrace some of the historic elements with an updated twist. There have been a lot of recent renovations, and we are continuing to update our hotel to keep the guests happy and to let some of its unique history shine through.
Since we are located on an island, there are many obstacles we have to face when collecting fresh water for our guests. Most places on the island, both residential and commercial, have a lower water pressure compared to most places in the states or other large countries. We are able to maintain enough water for all of our guests, and we are always creatively thinking of new ways to improve the water pressure.
One of our favorite features about our hotel is our view. We are delighted that you were able to get a fantastic picture of the sunrise, and enjoyed the view of the bay. St. Thomas is a wonderful island, filled with many wonders that can take days to explore. We agree that St. John is a great place to explore if you have time, and the ferry ride there is an experience in and of itself!

Thank you again for reviewing us and we hope to see you again in the future!

Sincerely,

This hotel has recently been renovated as I found over my weekend stay. They also have a new chef and the food is delicious. It is not the Ritz-Carlton but I didnt want to pay for the Ritz Carlton. Remember to say Good Morning and Good afternoon and you will get a warmer island experience.

Low quality hotel. Long delay to get rooms cleaned, at 4pm in the afternoon. Not much of a 'resort' small pool and very small 'beach.' Restaurant was just ok.

Best thing about it is free shuttle to Best Western Emerald Bay. You can also walk to a public park and beach (200 yards) for a little more space. Don't be fooled, you can walk from airport to this hotel 150-200 yards. You can save $7 per person.

Bottom line - it is ok for a night when you arrive before you go on your charter boat.

Thank you Jay for taking the time to write a review about us on TripAdvisor. We take our time in reading each and every review and try to improve ourselves upon all comments we receive.

We are in the process of renovating and improving our hotel. Our room service staff wants to ensure that every room is properly cleaned before any guests enter. Also, our pool and manmade beach are located for your convince, but we do also allow all Carib Beach Resort guests to take advantage of our shuttle to enjoy their pool and beach as well.

We also encourage all able body guests to walk from the air port! It’s a quick and easy walk and you won’t have to pay for a taxi. Our location is close to a park, like you said, Emerald Beach, the air port, and even a short drive to some of the best shopping in the Caribbean!

Just because it's close to the airport, don't take the bait. Cabs don't want to go there to or from the airport. It looked as if doors had been kicked in. Bathroom was gross. Not a place to stay even if for only 12 hours. We were going sailing the next day and needed a place to stay for the night. I'm thinking I would take my chances at the Bates Motel.

We are located close to the airport and are thrilled our guests don’t need to to take a cab getting to and from our hotel. Also, we are always looking at improving our hotel, and are currently doing some renovations.

This hotel has gone down fast over the years. I have stayed at this hotel over the last 10 years maybe 6 times, and as recently as April 2014 twice. The hotel did not have hot water on either stay and the stays were a week apart. After the first night I made an inquiry that there was no hot water and the staff acted surprised but then said they are working on it. Yeah right. The second night which was at the end of my group's sailing trip was the worst. 1) NO in room internet. They said that a storm had taken out the in internet in the rooms but not in the lobby, and that they are working on it. Selective lightening I guess. The funny thing is that is the SAME THING they said a week before AND the previous year! 2) NO HOT WATER! "We're working on it", yeah ok. In the morning when everyone else in the hotel is taking a cold shower there is NO water pressure either. There is a water truck that pulls up to the back of the hotel from time to time and feeds water to the hotel so I suspect they have some real problems with either their well or normal water supply. 2) As I took my outside air temperature shower later in the day, the shower head fell off and hit the floor and came apart. Being a good trooper, I put it back together, and it's those huge 7" shower heads that are the dumbest things since politicians. With no water pressure the "They suck" meter goes way up! 3) The A/C in my room did not work at all. They have these wireless remote controls for them that have so many stupid buttons (labeled with some foreign language hieroglyphic symbols) that one would need a degree in International Space Station electronics to figure out. At least at first I had a fan running. So I went to the front desk (because I could not call them ... see later in this review) and asked for maintenance to look at it and she said, we don't have any maintenance people here now so she came down and started pushing buttons at random and when I asked her what the buttons meant she did not know but just kept hitting them. Now the fan doesn't even work and said she would let them know in the morning. I woke up at 1am in a sweat! Horrible night. The rooms are not clean, bring lysol and lice spray if you stay here. Clorox clean up wipes needed also. 4) The hotel phone did not work at all, just dead! I would advise people to find another location. Such a shame too, because you can walk to and from this hotel to the airport.

Room Tip: Not sure any room here is better than the other one. Maybe the second floor is better so you can a...

Thank you Ronald for taking the time to write a review about us on TripAdvisor. We appreciate all your comments, even the negative, because they help us know what we need to work on for the future.

We are glad you are a frequent customer with us here at Carib Beach Resort. We are currently working on making our hot water more instantaneous. As for our water truck, we are forced to obtain better quality of water from other sources, and are keeping a close eye on our water supply. Most of the water on the island is collected by the rain, not wells, because it is the best way of gathering fresh water. Homes and businesses island-wide are forced to take these extra steps to obtaining all the water that is needed for daily use.

We know that WiFi is important to our guests. Currently, we are working on making a stronger connection, resort wide. It is something we have been diligently working on and we should be getting a stronger connection soon. As for right now, the lobby’s internet connection is great and there are a number of other spots throughout the resort that get a full connection.

The island does get hot and is more humid than most other places. Our A/C units were all recently installed, and the controls are very detailed. Since the island is so humid, the A/C units need to be turned a little colder than what they would normally be back in the states. I hope they were able to figure out the unit for you before your stay was over.

Our hotel is cleaned daily with the proper cleaning chemicals and linens are swapped out and cleaned as well. Also, some of our phones are currently getting repaired, and yours would be one of them. We are in the process of enhancing our resort’s overall quality.

Thank you again Ronald for reviewing us on TripAdvisor.
