“Sad to see Maho Close....But Concordia is just as Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

We were fortunate enough to experience Maho Bay Camps before they closed. Concordia may not be Maho, but is a completely different and memorable experience just as Maho was. It was great to finally see the other side of the island. Can't wait to come back!

Stayed April 2013, travelled with friends

We stayed last two days of Aug. Things were closing up. We didn't have a car, so our only restaurant choice was the Concordia Cafe. Even if we had a car, things were still closed down. Food was ok at Concordia. Limited choices. No hot breakfast at this time. With the beautiful breezes on the deck of A-25, it would have been great to have more cross ventilation to bring some of that fresh air indoors. Maybe it was the location of A-25 - maybe other units were breezier. Hike down to Salt Pond Bay may be an easy 15 min, but you have to get back up again! We love hiking and camping normally but this just didn't do it for us. We thought it was located on Maho Bay. Big difference. We visited Cinnamon Bay for the day and wished we had camped there instead. Good parts? The staff was very friendly. The ceiling fan was a big help at night (again wouldn't need one if there was better ventilation.) The stars were amazing. We LOVED the snorkeling in Salt Pond Bay. The hike out to Ram's Head was a good one.

This amazing Hotel located away from "touristy area". My husband and I enjoyed staying in Concordia very much. There is a blender, a coffee maker, a toaster and a refrigerator in the kitchen so we made fresh fruit smoothies every morning. There is very dark during the night and perfect for stargazing. The restaurant, however, didn't impressed us. We expected to see some health choices on the menu but instead there was pretty much just a bar food.

Room Tip: If you are not a fan to walk up & down stairs - ask to get a room close to the road where you wi...

We have just spent 2 nights at Concordia and loved it. We stayed in #8 and it had a fabulous view and was close to the road ( not many steps to get to it). It was quite windy when we were there and the tent swayed a bit and was noisy at night with the fabric flapping against the wood structure. The food at the restaurant was delicious. Now remember this is tent camping--deluxe text camping, but still camping. So if you want a hotel type resort, Concordia is not for you. We have stayed at Maho Camps for 25 years (they closed last year) and decided to give Concordia a try. We were very pleased with our experience. It's a bit out of the way ( on the East End of St.John) but we loved that side of the island--donkeys and goats roam around everywhere. If you like camping, Concordia is the place for you.

My son and I had a fantastic time at St. John, staying in an Eco-Studio at Concordia (unit A18). The staff was friendly and helpful and we were able to arrange a terrific kayaking/snorkeling trip (Hidden Reef) for one of the days and rent snorkeling gear for the week. Snorkeling at Salt Pond Bay (down the path from Concordia) was excellent. Our favorites were the sea turtles but the fish and coral viewing was excellent along the left shore. The food was very good in the Cafe and the views (from everywhere) were unsurpassed. We didn't have any issues with mosquitoes and slept okay even though temperatures stayed pretty warm through the night. My only issue was that we were in a bottom unit, and I woke up whenever an upstairs guest walked around late at night. Next time, I'll get a top unit! We rented a jeep (which I highly recommend) and were able to snorkel at spots all around the island. We also drove into Coral Bay regularly for dinner, which was always fun. I followed the Concordia recommendation and didn't look at work email the whole week. That was a great idea, and I look forward to doing that again.

We were in tent P-10 out on the edge: The wind was loud (but didn't keep us awake) and cooling; the views were fantastic! Normally, we would drive/hike for hours for a view like that-we felt lucky to be able to experience it throughout the day. We did not have difficulties with mosquitoes and the beds were comfortable. We did have to haul drinking water, wash clothes in the shower and deal with the sun warmed water with a rather weak flow; this made the experience more like very comfortable camping rather than being in a hotel. We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly and we enjoyed walking through the soldier crabs to get to the beach, where the snorkeling was fantastic (we did bring our own equipment)! On the whole, a really good trip-if we return, we would come during the winter time when the humidity was a bit lower. Although we had no difficulty with this in the tent because the wind blew it all out, the hikes to the beach left us sweaty; we were there at the end of July, just when the trade winds were dying. I would anticipate that during the height of summer-late August and September-the lack of wind would make things very uncomfortable.

Concordia is in a beautiful setting. Amazing really. But the eco-tents are so noisy at night from the fabric being hit by wind that our entire family couldn't sleep for the 5 nights. We were woken every 10 minutes. The cross breeze from the windows was too high over our beds for us to feel so we sweated all night as well, even when the weather outside was just fine.
We left a day early just to stay at a cheap hotel the last night and get some rest. The days were very nice. It is not cheap though. It is hard work to build on this remote island and a piece of average fruit at breakfast is $1.50 and coffee is as pricey as Starbucks. There is a charge each day for beach chairs and snorkeling equipment so bring what you can and stay in a building, not a tent.

Room Tip: Do not stay in an eco-tent. You will not get any sleep.
