Reviewed 22 April 2014

My boyfriend and I both have extremely involved careers working for Sephora's Corporate sector and as an editorial photographer. We decided on taking a much needed romantic get a way this April to relax and rejuvenate and we could not be more pleased with the comfort we've found at Secret Harbour Beach Resort. From the breath taking views of the bay from our room to the excellent and accommodating staff I would return here in a heart beat.

One of our favorite things to do in our down time outside of traveling the surrounding islands was enjoying kayak and snorkeling rentals from the dive shop. I am a certified and frequently practicing SCUBA diver and their dive shop met every one of my high expectations. Snorkeling and enjoying the crystal blue waters of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world is a high priority while visiting the islands and their rentals are in far better quality and in the best price range compared to anything else we've come across on the islands.

As frequent travelers for both work and pleasure, visiting combined dozens of countries around the world I'm happy to say our trip so far has exceeded our expectations and we are both looking forward to the rest of our week here in the Virgin Islands.

Cheers!

Our family of four-arrived into St. Thomas--late afternoon in mid-March--after two long flights coming from Denver. We traveled most of the day, then rented our vehicle near the airport and drove about a half hour to the other side of St. Thomas to "Secret Harbor". That extra push and travel time was worth it. "Secret Harbor" is a welcome retreat located in a quiet cove on a lovely arc of beach. By the time we unpacked, walked to the beach, dipped our toes in the water, we still got to see the beautiful sunset. We enjoyed "Pain-Killers" at their beachside restaurant "Sunset Grille" and talked about how we were going to spend our next days here. Secret Harbor had everything we needed to unwind and relax in this tropical paradise--we talked about eating elsewhere and venturing out--but spend all three days there enjoying snorkeling, paddle-boarding and sunbathing. There were many planned events to take advantage of as well--like night-diving and sailing. Our room was comfortable--showers were hot, beds were a little hard, and the boys had their own room. The pool was very clean and our boys and I enjoyed a cool dip after being at the beach. I would highly recommend "Secret Harbor" for families or couples.

Room Tip: When booking--if you want to be on the beach (toes in sand next to your room) you have to ask--for...

No need to go anywhere else..The rooms are modest but accomodating. The beach (always a place to sit) and snorkeling are at your fingertips and the service is excellent! Javier will greet you with a rum drink and show you to your room...Happy hour is affordable and easy to get a drink. The most impressive..the food..two menus that satisfy our taste at the moment...Walk in to Red Hook if needed to enjoy the town, shopping and a daysail cruise...Also, in Red Hook a Ferry that takes you to St. John for shopping and entertainment..Castaways bar is a must..nothing fancy but friendly and good carribean food..Taxi service is no more than a minute wait and $5 a person each way.....Overall..No need to go to the tourist areas in Amalie unless you like that sort of thing...Plan on around $350 per day per person to be in Paradise...Well worth it!!

This is our little get away for the last 10-12 years. It's a great place for couples, families, or even groups of friends. Beach is not a loud party beach. It's a nice relaxing beach that you can read a book, soak up the sun or simply enjoy the wonderful view as the sun sets. Snorkeling and scuba diving is right off shore. There is really great sea life to observe underwater. Water is calm even when the sea is rough. Nazareth Bay is somewhat protected. Rooms are clean and well taken care of. This is our little secret place. We will always stay at Secret Harbour when we come to St Thomas. It's a "jewel"!!!

I read Trip Advisor before I travel and everything was just as I read .Just returned from Secret Harbor and it was great.Only stay long weekend March 28-31.I will go back
Beach was clean and water was calm.No problems with lounge chairs.I like the part when
someone shows up without a hotel towel.The guy in charge of chairs had to tell them that
they could not use chairs,good to keep cruise ship people away not so good if you just want to visit for the day.Stayed in building #3 room 333,very clean,nice view.We only stayed long weekend so
did not use kitchen,but everything was their to cook in.Food at beach grill was great and you can
seat at beach Grill and order from restaurant menu until 9:00 PM
Todd the bartender and Emily waitress at breakfast were just so nice,was nice to have people from USA that will have a conversation with.Nice for singles ,couples and families
to talk to

Room Tip: Building 3 and 4 if you want quiet.Go with Beachfront

I am more than happy that we lived up to your expectations! The guys at the beach really work hard on making sure that hotel guests have an enjoyable, relaxed and peaceful stay. Concerning the room, as the Assistant General Manager, I personally inspect rooms each day to ensure that they are very clean, just like the room you received upon check-in. We will continue to make each stay a memorable one. I will ensure to pass on your review to Todd and Emily from the Restaurant.

We loved Secret Harbor - It is unpretentious, friendly and charming. The staff were lovely and extremely accommodating. Never overcrowded and a very relaxed atmosphere, our favorite activity was to simply sit back in our lounge chairs and enjoy the peaceful vibes, the beautiful beach and the relaxed atmosphere - reading, swimming, snorkeling then going to a delicious lunch at the beach bar. We truly appreciated the fact that after a 10 day stay, we were allowed to check out late on our last day as our flight wasn't until 5PM. That allowed us a final morning on the beach and a relaxed lunch before we packed up and left.

Our condo unit was perfect - clean, well furnished and well stocked and with daily cleaning service.
It was a short cab ride to the local supermarket so we could get everything we needed to cook at home and dine out on the terrace overlooking the evening beach at sunset.

In between just relaxing at the beach - we did some day trips to St John (highly recommended),
Hull Beach, and Charlotte Amalie (The historical tour).

Given the price and the service I couldn't think of a better situation. We totally loved it and for sure will be back

Room Tip: pay a little extra and go for the beach front units - the sound of the waves and the immediate acces...

This is my first trip to St. Thomas and I'm loving it and particularly Secret Harbor. The beach is gorgeous, the water calm and there are plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas. It's also not crowded even though I was told this is a busy week. Today we ran into 2 people who work at the Ritz and come here after work to swim because they said it's the best beach. I'm staying in Condo 411 with 2 friends. I LOVE the location. Our condo is just steps to the beach but off to the side so we have privacy while on the patio and a beautiful view of the water and trees (see the attached photo that I took with my iphone). The condo is a studio and has a king size bed and pull out sofa. Even when standing in the kitchen at the island, you are looking out at the beautiful view of the water and sailboats. This condo is quite nice with appliances that look brand new, including (thankfully) a dishwasher. There are 2 ceiling fans and the AC works well. We ate lunch at the outdoor bar/restaurant yesterday and the BBQ chicken salad was excellent. Tomorrow we take the ferry to St. John's and the car ferry is just down the road from Secret Harbor. On Sat, I'm going on the Stormy Petrel all-day boat/snorkeling trip with a dozen people. I've heard wonderful things about this excursion on TripAdvisor so am really looking forward to it.
