Love, Love, Sapphire Beach with its sweeping views, clear crystal water and large white sand beaches. My husband and I stayed at one of the condos there in January. The unit we stayed in was quite clean and modern and comfortable. I booked this on VRBO and dealt directly with the owner so there was no confusion about checking in, keys, etc. I didn’t realize St. Thomas was so mountainous, so I chose this condo, not realizing that it was at one of the highest buildings in the complex. We had great views that overlooked the on -site marina, and we could see other Caribbean islands, from our balcony, like St. John, Tortola, Jost Van Dyke. So from that perspective, it was wonderful. There are many iguanas, some quite large, living right on the property, mostly near the marina, which could surprise you as you walk around the complex. There were also roosters and ducks making their home there as well. Since our condo was so high up, it was a hike to get to the beach, which was not a big deal for us because we are physically fit and fairly young. However, this property is very hilly, and I would not recommend it for the elderly or young children unless you stay much closer to the beach. So just be aware of that when researching this property. We did not rent a car, and used the taxi system to get around. We had no problem getting into Red Hook, the small town near the complex, for about a $1 each. They pick up at the top of the hill at the complex, but it seemed like getting back was more expensive, we paid about $5 a person. We could never quite figure out the taxi system there. For eating, there is the Sapphire Beach Bar & Grille on the property. They were open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the food was good. This is casual dining, and by no means fancy, which was fine for us. We were exhausted by the end of the day with kayaking, snorkeling, sailing, so having a restaurant on the property was convenient. We were there a week, and during that time they had live entertainment 2 nights. There is also a small hut on the property, near the beach, that has breakfast and lunch items. There is also a great food truck at the top of the hill, at the entrance of the complex, called “Off the Grid” that serves, delicious pulled pork, chicken, sides, all the fixings. Buy early though, I am told they sell out quickly. We bought these meals one day about 11:30 AM, refrigerated them, and ate dinner on the balcony after a day of snorkeling and kayaking. I would go back to this resort again, but choose a different condo closer to the beach.
