Secret Harbour Beach Resort

Reviewed 16 March 2014

We spent the long Martin Luther King holiday weekend Jan 2014 at Secret Harbour. This was our first visit but won't be our last. We were in a beachfront condo,2nd floor. This was updated and comfortable and the view off the balcony was amazing! The beach is beautiful and the attendants recognized the guests and had lounge chairs ready. The snorkeling was quite good and the water clear and gorgeous blue. There is a full kitchen. We were able to eat breakfast and lunch in the condo unit and had dinner in the hotel restaurant each night.
We were able to return for a day visit during our recent cruise stop and enjoyed the beach again- the day cruise visitors are restricted to the restaurant side of the beach but we reserved chairs and umbrellas ahead of time and everything was set up for us when we arrived.
There are no restaurants or shops within walking distance so plan on using a taxi. There are usually taxis out front but the desk will call if needed.

We stayed at Secret Harbour in April of 2013 with 2 other couples. We stayed in a beach front 1 bedroom unit on the top floor, I think in building 4. The other couples were also in beach front 1 bedroom units. The décor in the rooms varied from outdated (ours) to updated (theirs)...but all rooms were very clean! Staff was great, the guys working the bar took very good care of us, as did the waiters on the beach. If you are wanting 5 star, go to the Ritz...but if you are wanting a relaxing time then definitely stay here. Our main goals were to walk out of our room and be on the beach and this is exactly what we got...We will be back!

My husband and I were so lucky to find this spot which we booked only 2 weeks before we arrived.. It was delightful to stay in a spacious condo just steps from the beach. The unit, was spotless, newly renovated attractively furnished, comfortable king size bed, lots of storage space ,2nd floor with balcony very private.
The staff was exceptional. at the front desk ,Delicia and Rhonda,maid service and in the restaurant where we had .breakfast and lunch.Our waiter Brad was attentive and gave us great tips about the area,We had several excellent dinners at the Sunset Grill and also in Red Hook.

Room Tip: Building 1 or 2 closer to beach

Secret Harbor is a comfortable hotel in a nice private location. There are plenty of chairs and umbrellas but no water toys except for rental. Snorkeling is good with reefs just off the beach and lots of fish. The one bedroom condo was dated but just steps from the beach. The rooms were very clean and maid service was good. Staff was very competent. When booking ask for a ground floor in building three. You step out on the beach but building three is elevated so your are not in a fish bowl.

Room Tip: Building Three one bedrooms on the ground floor provide privacy and immediate beach access.

Stayed in room 424, a beach front 1 bedroom unit in building 4 on the second floor. The room was lovely and the view even better. Kitchen and bathroom updated and very nice, bed probably needs to be replaced, TV and AC worked well. Staff was friendly, courteous and helpful - they even let me print my boarding passes in the office. The beach is small, but nice - albeit a little busy sometimes, due to non-resort visitors. The snorkeling was excellent - many rock formations on either end of the beach to explore and many interesting fish species to discover. A short drive to Redhook, which has a few stores/eateries and the ferry. A grocery store is a short drive in the other direction. However, driving on the island is an adventure! You drive on the left (the wrong side given that the steering wheel is also on the left side of the vehicle), the roads are narrow, sharp cornered, and nothing is marked. The locals drive pretty poorly and have no patience for tourists in Jeeps. The Sunset Grill (restaurant) was pretty good, but pricey. We ate there twice and were ready for something different. The Cruzan Beach Club bar/grille was also pretty good, less pricey, but still not inexpensive. Drinks are expensive, To be fair, not much on the island is inexpensive - groceries, pizza all high. Regardless, overall a nice place to stay for sand, sun and relaxation.

Room Tip: I liked the beach front, would suggest 2nd or third floor for privacy and view - building 4 is farth...

We booked here at the last minute due to our flights from the USVI being canceled due to weather. This place was awesome. The staff were wonderful and professional. We showed up three hours early and they did not have our reservation. I showed them the receipt on my phone and they upgraded us immediately to a two bedroom apartment on the hill overlooking the pool, beach, and harbor. When we walked down to the beach side bar the manager introduced himself and the staff and pointed out everything. Everything about this place was excellent. Even the snorkeling on the reef was good.

just got back from a quick 5 day mini vaca in st thomas and we stayed at secret harbour. it's a casual, laid back place.

rooms- condo units, we had a 1 bedroom (226) that had a renovated bathroom and kitchen. it looked directly onto the beach w/the water 100' in front. they also have waterview rooms but i would stay waterfront as it's a bit of a walk from the water view units. the unit's are older but very clean and comfortable. the bed was hard but we are ok with that.

beach - no issues here, small, quite and easy access to a protected bay beach. there are some rock formations in the water but it's not an issue. kind of surprised that there was no waiter service but it's a short walk to the bar/restaurant.

bar/restaurant- for a caribbean hotel/condo resort i have to say that it's very good. we ate every meal in either the rest or the bar and everything was good and most of it was very good. prices for food and drinks were within range of what i would expect, if they were any more we probably would have eaten a few meals off property. it's a 5 out of 5 for a small resort operation.

front desk and managers were all great, the girls at the check in were as nice as could be and havier?? one of the mangers couldn't have been more accomodating.

i'd go back without a question, our other option was the ritz but for the money and the laid back atmosphere i'm glad we chose secret harbour.

Room Tip: renovated and water front not view
