“The View is the Best!”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

As long as you are not looking for a five star hotel, you will not be disappointed. The view from MaFolie is wonderful. I am not sure if I would like to spend a whole week there as it is not near any beach or other points of interest. You would need a car or take taxis which are pretty expensive.
Our room was clean but sparse -- over the restaurant so a bit noisy and with less of a great view from the outside balcony in front of the room. But less steps to the restaurant and the office. The pool is down quite a few steps. Small, but nice.
The breakfast, which is included, was excellent. The wait staff treated us to a fresh smoothie. Delicious.
We ate dinner at the restaurant at a table with a great view of the town and watched as the light faded and the town lights came on all over and on the mountains. Spectacular. The food was very good and the service excellent.
We stayed one night to extend the time we ware booked in St Thomas and it was a very good choice.
Compared to other hotels on St. Thomas, this one is a very nice one for the price.

Room Tip: Rooms above the restaurant do not have much of a view and are noisy.

I'll be sure to update this as long as they take care of the problem, but it doesn't really matter what I think of a hotel property when I get charge once for the normal room rate (one night $195) and on the same day have an additional charge of $587.43! One of the two emails they have is bouncing back, left a message on their phone. If you don't see an update, assume I've had to take the problem to my CC company. :(

Dear Sir,
Let me apologize for our mistake. We had a new employee who unfortunately made an accounting error. It is my understanding that you had spoken with our front desk manager, your credit card was credited and this had been resolved. If there is anything I can do to help or if this credit has not “hit” your credit card please call me directly at 518-505-5609. I again apologize for our mistake.

This is a great hotel with a magnificent view and terrific restaurant/bar! It is above the town of Charlotte Amalie about 5 minutes drive, so if you don't have a car you need to take a cab into town, which is neither a problem nor expensive. We did not feel that the rooms or facility were "dated" but if you are concerned about this they are about to undergo renovation this off season. Very good value and a definite "no-brainer" yes to book for your upcoming visit to St Thomas!

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
