View absolutely stunning. position a little on the side. Simple and a bit worn out place. Very scaled down breakfast menu. No WiFi in room, you must sit in the restaurant to be connected. No shuttle to town, you have to call a taxi.

The view from the room was stunning, but it did not make up for the hard bed and pillows, extremely noisy window air conditioner (that they wanted turned off when you left the room), dusty surfaces and run-down bathroom. The shower was so stained (and dirty?) that I would not use it. It is so far from town or other restaurants that expensive taxis were the only method of transportation.

Perfect place for couples. Very convenient location to each side of island, better beaches on the north side. Great restaurant, very friendly and accommodating staff. Amazing views, that are just beautiful and very romantic. I have stayed here 3 times and will be again. Great value.

Even though it had a funny name we were excited about staying here for a girl’s only time in the islands. The staff was OK nice and the views are amazing (a huge plus for us) but the place is kind of run down. The restaurant is cool and food was great but avoid the bartender Tussler, he’s just too over the top, way too talkative for a bartender. And don’t think you’re going to walk around in this area as it is kind of sketchy but if you’re Ok with getting a taxi every time you want to go somewhere it’s not too bad. I’d recommend it and may return but would love to hear they have dome some improvements like some of the staff had mentioned they’re planning.

Room Tip: if you stay over the kitchen it will make you hungry all night

Highly recommend. My wife and I honeymooned here and could not have picked a better place than this boutique hotel. The view is unmatched only by the service. Everyone made us feel so welcomed and made an effort to get to know us to the extent we were willing. The sunset was breathtaking every night, and you can watch it from the pool, the bar, or the restaurant. The pool was great. It wasn't olympic sized, no diving boards or slides, but it was well maintained and the pool area had chaise loungers, umbrellas, and was very relaxing. The snack bar had great lunch food and voodoo punch cocktails. The restaurant was fantastic too. The fresh catch was always delicious and prepared well, and they had plenty to offer for my wife who doesn't eat fish. The prices were comparable. When the restaurant was closed for staff christmas party, they invited all of the hotel guests to the party. DJ, buffet, drinks, the works, all on Mafolie. I've never experienced such great hospitality. Charlotte Amalie can be a little too fast paced, and it didn't offer much for night life anyway, so I'm glad we stayed above. Mafolie offered free shuttle to Magen's anyway.

We visited the Mafolie March 28-April 2, 2013. We were in St. Thomas for a family wedding. It was our first trip to St. Thomas. I titled this review "a mixed bag" because there were both good and not so good aspects to the hotel. For the good, the view is unsurpassed. The hotel is on a hill overlooking the bay at Charlotte Amalie. There is an open air restraunt and bar the are quit good. The pool also overlooks the bay. The price is price was low for the area.
The not so good is that the rooms are somewhat rustic. The shower in our room did not have "hot" water. The water was only warm at best. It was so tepid that you could not use the cold water faucet to get more water pressure or it was totally cold. There was not hair dryer in the rooms, so we had to bring our own hair dryer and unplug the TV to use it. Also, the room air conditioner was a very small wall unit that was not up to keeping the room comfortably cool during the day in the moderate conditions we faced. I would be concerned that it might be very hot in the room during summer.
The hotel is also too far for anything to walk. A taxi is required. The restaurant is not open for lunch. There is an out door grill that serves lunch, but it is not open if it rains or if the cook does not show up. It was open only one day during our stay.
The Mafolie is quirky, but the view may be worth it.

The staff is super friendly and make sure you have a decent experience. The rooms are hot, they are cooled by a window unit which doesn't do much. It's more bearable outside. The room had bugs in it and was just outright nasty. The only place to eat lunch is the pool bar which was open on one day of our stay. Other than that, there is nothing within walking distance. Dinner was decent though its ranked top 5. The wait staff is very personable minus the hostess. Rooms don't have refrigerators or microwaves so you can can it somewhere but no to go foods. Cabs are decently priced and drivers are so nice. Overall, the view is amazing but it can't make up for the lack of amenities this motel offers.
