Reviewed 25 October 2010

We stayed during Oct. Off season. There was about a dozen on the beach and restaurant. Less around the pool. Our unit was 100 yards from beach less to pool and rest. Beach was not pristine but very quite. Some rocks on sand and in water. pool was very nice some floating plant pieces. Wind was mild but enough to blow loose items into pool.Iguana droppings on deck was a daily event. Part of the tropic feel. Grounds were very very well kept and nicely arranged plants all seamed healthy.
Had several issue with key cards. Staff suggested my cell was to blame. On each exchange with staff in office they were very friendly and helpful. With the exception of one staff I bothered only once, a young lady [under 30s] and by far the most attractive of the staff was more involved in a cell phone conversation I felt sorry I made her ask them to hold a moment. I was an interruption for her private call.
The hotel unit we reserved exceeded what we expected. It was small but larger them an average hotel more like a mini suite.
The shining star was their on location restaurant Roberts. We planed to dine around to a variety of restaurants. We only did so twice in our week stay. Both times were not as good of food quality as Roberts. The food served was above normal in taste and nicely displayed. Exquisite was our response to the taste after our sighs. Robin our daily dining server was an excellent waiter. He offered good suggestions on food and wine pairing.
Roberts decor is closer to fine casual then elegant. But each nite we dined open air 20ft from the beach.Who wants formal dining there.
Over all we did very little in this 4th visit to St Thomas except sleep eat and lay on the beach. It was great. We will use this property again.

The hotel itself is not in great condition, walking into our room was like walking into a swamp. The bedding was old and the mattress appears to be sinking slighly in the middle. Thank god we did not stay in the room much during our stay. The workers were very nice and helpful throughout our stay though. The area had a pretty decent beach to just relax and watch the water.

I just got back from a 5 day stay at the Elysian Resort, which is offered as an option through the Armed Forces Vacation Club. I had read ALL the reviews before booking our reservation, so I knew the feedback was quite mixed and set my expectations accordingly. I was not looking for a fancy, super luxurious place at a super-luxe price, so The Elysian was in our budget and had the amenities we wanted...beachfront, great view, good location, good pool, clean rooms, close to Red Hook and Ferry, with restaurants and bars on site.

Checking in went smoothly...it is considered low season so there was virtually no waiting. Vicky at the front desk was welcoming and accommodating. The general rule in St. Thomas is "be friendly and you will get friendly back". There is a bulletin board in the lobby with all kinds of information about taxis, ferries, the restaurants, etc. There is a huge album full of menus from area restaurants. They will call to arrange a taxi anytime you need one if one is not already waiting. (FYI – it is $15 per person to the airport).

The grounds were quite beautiful and to view this resort from the water, it actually looks more upscale. The pool was clean and spacious with plenty of lounge chairs and a jacuzzi. You may want to pack an inflatable raft to float around – we wished we had. Yes, there are stairs to get to every room, because it is built on a hill but it really was not bad, so unless you have a medical limitation, I would not let that deter you. The advantage of this too is that you have a wonderful view from nearly every room. The beach is lined with palm trees blowing in the breeze, was not crowded at all, and there are plenty of lounge chairs here. It was clean and we saw maintenance staff raking it and cleaning it up every morning. There is a tennis court that we did not use but it appeared to be in good shape. There is a concierge shack on the beach were you can rent kayaks and paddle boats, as well as arrange day sails and other day trips. Concierge Sean hooked us up with excursions through New Horizons to St. John and to the BVI and were 100% satisfied with both trips (note: continental breakfast = muffin and juice, no coffee). They have a free happy hour at the shack seemingly every day where they share details about the excursions as well as other valuable information about the island.

There are two restaurants, Robert’s and Ainsley’s. Robert’s is more upscale and has won awards for its food. The service was wonderful. We only ate breakfast there but it was delicious. (Egg Sandwich with sausage, large enough to split, with potatoes -$9.00). Ainsley’s is an outdoor bar/pub with a more casual menu and great music, sometimes live. (I highly recommend the Marguerita Pizza - $13.00, and big enough to share. So good we had this twice). Be aware that neither location is open late night. This may vary during the high season but during our visit they closed between 9-10 each night, which fit right into our schedule because our days were so full and busy.

The resort is experiencing major renovations, particularly of the guest rooms and there is a whole display in the lobby with pictures of what the new furnishings and colors will look like. It is going to be beautiful and I would definitely come back. For now, the rooms are fine, though admittedly dated. There is plenty of space, and our room was clean and fully functioning, but yes, they are ready for the anticipated updates.... Our beds were clean and comfortable; the bathroom offered plenty of space, with the vanity area being separated from the bathtub and toilet. There was a fridge and microwave, we did not watch TV, but it did work, and had a dvd player. The air conditioner in our room was loud, but stayed cool, and did well at tuning out any noise we would have otherwise heard from the neighbors. In truth, the whole island could use some updating. The roads are narrow and pitted, and there are no sidewalks anywhere near this resort, but we enjoyed our stay at the Elysian Resort and for the price we paid, we do not feel we could have done better.

We had a nice stay for one week. The room was a bit dated and the plumbing could have used a little attention. The renovation is underway, they hadn't gotten to the room we stayed in yet. For the price we paid I can't complain much about a loose faucet, and cracked tile. The location is nice with most rooms overlooking the pool and beach area. The beach is a bit small but is not heavily used. Good snorkeling especially at night if you have lights along the rocky shore to the east. The location on the east end of the island keeps you away from the crowded city sceene and is close to the ferry dock to St. John.

We stayed at Elysian because we have a Wyndham time share. We planned to get married in St Thomas so we booked a room for us and several friends and family members. The rooms might have been nice if we were in a 3rd world country. The rooms were pitiful. Murphy beds, pull out couches, mattresses with blood stains, ants, holding the toilet handle down to get it to flush, shower only-no baths, non working washing machines... thats just a little bit of what we experienced. I will say however that their pool was nice and clean.

The resort borders a palm tree lined cove and a powdery sand beach near Red Hook at the east end of St. Thomas.
Our studio had a balcony overlooking the tennis court, parking spaces, Welcome Office and the beach beyond. The resort grounds are well maintained. A lot of tropical shrubs, trees and plants around the property.
There is a snack bar and grill at the beach. I did not eat there so I can’t say how the food was. The menu was a normal American fare. Hamburgers, chicken fingers and the like.
Lounge chairs at the beach and you could have full sun or the shade of a palm tree.
Free wifi at the Welcome Office. Swimming pool and Robert’s American Grille on the property.
Great food at Robert’s. The Wahoo w/rice patties and vegetable was perfectly prepared. Tuna with sweet potato and vegetable was also very good. Scallops on linguine, very tasty. Other items on the menu: pork, steak and chicken. Be sure to try the Chocolate fudge, ice cream éclair.
Many other restaurants in Red Hook about 2 miles away.
The studio unit was clean with all tile floors. Microwave, small refrigerator, HD TV w/remote. Dual sinks in the bathroom. Large soft linen.
Now, everything was not perfect. Hot water in the shower was a major problem. I called maintenance the first night. I was told that maintenance would be there in 10 minutes. After a half hour I called the office again. Maintenance showed-up within 5 minutes after the second call. Maintenance could not do anything about the problem. The unit has an instant electric unit. It worked well for the sink, but did not supply hot water for the shower more than two minutes. My wife and I learned to get wet, turn off the water, soap -up and wash, then turn on the water again. Not convenient when after a day in the sun, saltwater and sand you want a good hot (if not at least warm) shower. Maintenance could not 'fix' the problem.
