We spent the second half of our honeymoon and have had very mixed emotions about this place. (Spent first 5 nights on St. John). The staff except for the person at the Adventure Desk could not be nicer. Each and every wait staff and bartenders were top notch. Everyone was so friendly and genuinely seemed to care about us and went out of their way to make us feel special.

The resort is not at all well maintained. We stayed at the Morning Star Beach, the room, as we walked at a terrible musty smell, the shower liner needed to be changed and the shower tile needed a couple of gallons of bleach to get rid of the mold. I sprayed Lysol everywhere, including the bed sheets. We were on our way back to our room from dinner, I could smell garbage.

I did the night kayaking with my girlfriend on 5/12/2016, doing the late night 9:30 pm tour with Sam + Paul, and we couldn't have asked for a better time. There were only a few couples there, but we saw two sea turtles, learned a lot of history about Saint Thomas, and heard a handful of classic pirate jokes. I would absolutely recommend doing the night kayak at the Marriot Frenchman's Reef!

Yes a snake in our room first night. After the second night they switched our room to higher location. A bit scary to say the least. Had to keep suitcases packed and above ground a couple of days. We loved the staff and were treated great. Second room had a large spider that found its way into my wife's bag. Someone also was trying to get in our room while we were in it also. Probably got confused. Loved the people there.

For many years we visited St Thomas onboard the SS Norway and the ship anchored facing this resort. So this time we looked out of our balcony to that anchor spot. The room was spacious and room service breakfast delivered hot and on time. Great to sit out at night for a glass of wine on the patio and watch the sunset

Stayed for a week in late June. Beautiful property. Very clean pools. The one you can walk to at Morning Star has very few guests and is lovely. Several restaurants to choose from-all expensive as is the norm at any resort of this type. Waitress service at any of the restaurants was painfully slow, but this is "island time" after all. Need to give a shout out to Deirde, the most attentive, efficient and altogether lovely poolside waitress. Hope she gets a raise for all her hard work. Room servic... Read more

We spent two weeks in St. Thomas. The first week, we stayed at Frenchman's Reef and the second at Frenchman's Cove (the Vacation Club part-share). The resort is excellent, with great restaurants to choose from (Coco Joe's is a great beach bar/restaurant) and Morningstar Beach, a quiet, clean beach you can watch the cruise ships from. The rooms were nice, but we had our kids with us so the second week at the Cove with more room was better for us. However, I would recommend both.

Hotel staff was very friendly. Requested ocean view which was beautiful. Balcony was great and roomy. 4-5 places to eat on the property. Food was expensive in my opinion. Take a day to go to St. John and visit the BVIs. Money was worth the trips. Boats we travelled in was great! You will need to take boat taxi or regular taxi to get to town or anywhere else. Can't really walk there from the property.

My birthday vacation this year was to visit the Virgin Islands,(girls trip) we stayed at the Marriott Morning Star. It has great beach views, and restaurants, I liked that you can use all the facilities around included with the frenchman's reef. Getting around was easy too with the taxi services provided at the hotel. We did some island hopping, an excursion, and hung out down town in the evening. If you're a beach lover like me this is the place to visit. Viiews and water to die for!!

The Beach Villa we stayed in was fantastic and right on the ocean. The Sand Bar was next to it and was delightful. The hotel itself is nice and chic. Has a lot of amenities and overall was solid. My only debate with this resort is that you have to take a cab everywhere and it can get expensive quickly. Rent a car if possible. Also, every meal was about $100 for the two of us and the food was okay-not out of this world. Thus you spend a lot of money on cabs and meals plus the activities th... Read more

I stayed 4 nights at the Frenchman's Reef and it was nice but not as nice as 5 star. When I think of 5 star the first thing that comes to mind is cleanliness and in some ways that was lacking. The hallways were very dingy looking as well as the carpet throughout and the elevators. The views are beautiful, the staff is helpful and flexible, the drinks were reasonably priced and not watered down which was nice! The breakfast buffet is $28 per adult and $16 for kids...pricey for a 4 day stay. The p... Read more

It was clean. Sometimes difficult to get in to restaurants on resort - need to plan ahead, especially if you have kids with you. Views and pools are fantastic. Beach is fun, and you can borrow boogie boards, etc. Service is excellent.

A great place to stay in St. Thomas and the location was excellent. Good food and friendly staff. You can catch the ferry to Charlotte Amalie that leaves every 30 minutes. They have a tour company on-site and taxis are available within a few minutes.

The Night Kayaking was amazing! Fernando, Paul and Plyton were great tour guides. I would definitely recommend it for anyone staying there! The Cat sunset dinner cruise with Fernando and Jasmine is also highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I traveled to St. Thomas and stayed here, but in the Morning Star Beach Villas. We LOVED the beach villas and were glad we stayed in those instead of the actual hotel - it was super cozy, and faced the beach. Staff was great, our room was clean, and the Beach Hut was awesome! Jarred was our favorite - CoCo Joe's was amazing - we ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were all inclusive though. Will come back for sure - amazing views, total relaxation and lot of eatin... Read more

The views from the hotel in general and hotel balcony is amazing. Prices are pretty high considering the food drinks and service are a little lacking. Experiences away from the hotel are much better bang for your buck!!

Fantastic experience and lots of sea life. Austin, Yentyl, and Haley were amazing guides keeping us safe and providing an enjoyable narrative. Definitely a trip we will repeat when we return. Highly recommend. Thank you for a great memory of St. Thomas.

We visit the Virgin Islands a couple times a year. We love to island hop to the BVI's as well during our stay. On our last day/night there, we stay at the Marriott. It's a great place to end a wonderful trip. I highly recommend it if your passing through.

Hotel is nice, main areas and pool are really good. The room is good, but bathroom not that good. Really small and doesn't go with the rest of the hotel. Service is not good though. Slow, twice I went to the pool and there were no towels available... Restaurants are extremely overpriced and there's nothing special about the food. Overall hotel is over rated to me. For what they offer, it should be a lot cheaper.

My daughter and I planned a trip to St. Thomas and booked the Marriott Frenchman's Reef. I travel all the time for my job and stay at Marriott's. I am very loyal to this brand. Even for work I choose to always book at Marriott properties. So needless to say when I was planning this trip the Frenchman's Reef it seemed like a no brainer. The overall property is decent at best. At first when you arrive the lobby is pretty open air with a nice view out of the back of the pool and the ocean. T... Read more

We spent five nights at the Frenchman's Reef. We requested, and paid the upgrade, an ocean view room. The room was nice but a little dated. Our view was of a palm tree. The ocean was almost impossible to see. Because we paid for 5 nights we received a $50 a day food credit for the resort. This was nice but there is a $45 a day resort fee so we actually only has $5 a day. Our room has an adjoining door to the next room. This would pose a huge issue when some 18 year olds occupied the room. We ... Read more

I hired Amir to be our taxi service for the week I was staying at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef and Morning Star Hotel. Saw he had excellent reviews on here and took my chances. OMG! He was the best! By the end, I felt like he was family. I had my daughters wedding here and had all the guests use Amir for their taxi services. He was on time, professional, and alot of fun! His Vans were Clean and New. He Knows the Island well! He had the best prices too! Call him or text him at (340) 513-7117.

The people were all very nice, although one afternoon I went to the adventure center to ask where to get snorkel equipment and the gentleman (name started with a P) seemed annoyed with me, told me at the beach hut, we stood mesmerized for a moment trying to figure out where that was and he offered no help, we asked someone else (another guest) who was very helpful. The hallways smelled funky on occasion. I slept well though and it was pretty quiet, I loved the iguanas as well.

We stayed at Frenchman's Reef after a red-eye flight from Denver. After a short delay with our check in, we raced to the pool to soak in the great view and sip a much needed margarita. We were upgraded to an great ocean view room...great views across the bay to the other side of St Thomas. The next day we enjoyed the beach at Morning Star. We loved the property, the accommodations were very good, the meals were excellent, the prices were reasonable (for an island resort) and the service was frie... Read more

Beautiful views, warm ocean water and sandy bottom beaches..that is, once you can get to them. Arrived late afternoon on Sunday, took me over 2 hours to finally get a room. I had to ??speak?? to multiple front desk staff and the manager who kept on telling me that the housekeeping supervisor said that they had not yet cleaned our room (arrived at 4pm mind you). My opinion as to why my room was not ready is because the housekeeping staff moves at the pace of frozen syrup (every trying pouring ... Read more

The Night Kayak tour is a fun way to see what is happening under the ocean at night. With plexiglass clear bottoms and LED lighting, many fish, turtles and string rays were attracted to our kayak. Our tour guides, Dylan and Amanda were both knowledgeable and entertaining on the tour (even Dylan's pirate jokes amused my 10 year old). A great excursion to do and the price was very reasonable for the quality of the experience.

Great stay!!! We visited July 31-August 4th. Customer service was much better then I expected (from previous reviews). Check in process took about 15 minutes. I was on the 6th floor at the Reef. The beds were comfortable & the rooms were considerably clean. Housekeeping service was a little slow but they did get to our room. Food prices were comparable to other Caribbean resorts.

Our friend held an event over the weekend. The hotel screwed up the room reservations even though the block was reserved for almost a year. They didn't charge us the resort fee after we complained that wifi didn't work & there were no chairs, umbrellas or beach toys available. Hotel staff denied any problems or complaints - after we had ticket numbers evidencing ours and others' complaints- so frustrating. With 50 guests at the hotel- many of which stayed for the entire week, you would think... Read more

My family (2 adults/2 children) stayed for 1 night at the Morning Star using points before moving over to the Frenchman's Cove for 6 nights the following day. I was really looking forward to staying at the MorningStar section on the sand as I got the impression it was the more "upscale" parts of the hotel....sort of the "Hotel within the Hotel". I was lucky to have our room with 2 beds ready when we arrived at 1:30pm from the airport. I did find the woman at the front desk to lack friendlines... Read more

Our family stayed at the Frenchman's Reef for our vacation and enjoyed the amenities that this property offered. I am 100% Marriott in both business and personal travel and this property was comparable to many other Marriott Resort hotels that we've stayed at previously. We ate at every restaurant on the property (5 total I believe) and each of them had a decent menu selection and the food was above average at each location. Prices were what you'd expect at a resort (especially keeping in min... Read more

I was with a large party and most had similar complaints to mine, I also met strangers who had similar complaints yet hotel workers acted like there were no problems (which makes a bad situation worse). 1. We asked for an upgrade at check in so we could be closer to others in our party but were told the hotel was completely booked and it would not be possible then I found out that they were giving upgrades to others who checked in at same time. Needless to say we were not near others in our part... Read more

My wife and I stayed at this property and took advantage of a highly discounted rate, which is why I am giving the property two stars rather than one. The hotel is showing its age and is not well maintained. The spa pools were in need of cleaning -- we swam through leaves and dead bugs -- the furniture is starting to come apart, and scuffs are evident on the walls, floors and tabletops throughout the hotel. On our second day, we witnessed a significant leak coming through the ceiling of the th... Read more

I have visited this Marriott location twice so far and plan to go back again in the near future. The bartenders at all of the restaurants within the Marriott were all extremely friendly and helpful (especially Ocean and Jason at the SandBar and Tripp and Tiffany at Coco Joe's). Prince Taxi was also recommended to me while I was at the Marriott. Amir who runs Prince Taxi is beyond amazing! Definitely the best taxi coordinator EVER!!! Very helpful and personable with a clean, comfortable van!

Third time on St. Thomas, first time at this property. I'll establish three things up front: 1) I would definitely return to this property 2) the property is definitely dated 3) There may be scenic views on island that equal those of the Frenchman's Reef; however, none will surpass them. Candid talk: if you want the absolute most recently refurbished, modern and up to date motif available, this ain't the place for you. If you want, island charm, island time and an awesome view from almost anywh... Read more

We stayed at the resort for a week with two teenage . It was a last minute booking that was definitely worth the price! The staff at the resort were very accommodating, I requested a higher floor at check-in and they were quick to change my room for my request. The rooms were very clean and updated, and larger than usual. My only complaint was our room faced the entrance of the hotel and therefore had a faux balcony of only about a foot deep. The doors opened and the view of the island was ... Read more
