We stayed at the Beachcomber the night before catching the ferry to Tortola to begin our week long sail boat charter. The hotel is a three minute drive from the airport, so be sure to secure a good price before catching a cab from the airport. When we arrived the lady at the front desk was incredibly pleasant and gave us rooms right on the beach...which was great. We tried to eat at the restaurant twice, but both times the restaurant was closed, so we ended up walking down the beach to the Best Western. The drinks at the bar were reasonably priced, but the bar food was definitely not something to write home about. The rooms are also below average in terms of cleanliness, but for the price and the beach location you just can't beat it.
Now for the good...the staff was very friendly and helpful, the price was awesome compared to other alternatives in Charlotte Amelie, the fact that I could actually jump from my rooms doorway into the sand was unbeatable, and the beach only has two resorts so it was very nice and quiet (aside from the departing airplanes).
I wouldn't recommend staying more than a night or two, but definitely worth a short-term stop over.
