We stayed at the Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort for one week before taking a cruise from San Juan, PR.
Our room was down by the beach and not in the main hotel. The hotel provides a shuttle to make this journey easier, especially upon first arrival. The room was quite large and comfortable although not luxurious or modern. The balcony was most welcome. A better choice would have been a room overlooking the ocean.
There are some open air restaurants at the beach, where we had a couple of dinners, but we preferred the restaurant in the main building for both breakfast and dinner. From here the view of the bay was wonderful both morning and evening.
There are tennis courts and a swimming pool by the beach, plus some other pools at the main building. There is a small supermarket / shop in the main building. You can also make island tour arrangements in the main lobby.
The town of Charlotte Amalie is a taxi ride away and there is quite a lot to see and many nice restaurants. If you like jewelry shopping you will spend some time here. There is a water taxi from the hotel to Charlotte Amalie, but be prepared for a lot of steps to get to the water taxi.
There are a lot of stairs in this resort! Be prepared to get some exercise, unless you use the shuttle bus. We enjoyed the walk to the main building where we saw a waterfall and many iguanas!
There is a beautiful garden location for small weddings or private activities at the main building. The photos from here must be stunning.
The staff was friendly and we enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
