"Best Resort in St. Thomas!"
I was kind of skeptical about this place because of the mixed reviews on it but I'm soo very happy I didn't pay them any attention. I'll go by category:
-The room was very clean and neat.
-Everything in the room worked and was in its proper place (tv, hairdryer, AC, fan etc.)
-The room was cleaned daily around 4pm, housekeeping was very friendly and helpful.
-Decor was up to date and not overly colorful. I hate hotels that looks like a rainbow threw up on it. Lots of creams and greens very relaxing.
-Bathroom was spacious and had a shower/tub combo, it was big enough for me and my husband to fit in together and he is over 6 foot 3inches soo yea.
-Balcony was clean and had 2 chairs and a table to sit and enjoy the view
-We stayed in room 735, completely unobstructed view of the ocean, beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Stunning!
If you opt in for the all inclusive you will not be sorry. There are 3 different places you can eat right now, being that its the off season, and they have great food at each.
Breakfast: There's usually a huge breakfast buffet in the morning. Everything you could imagine or want to eat will be down there.
Lunch: You can eat at the Mangrove restaurant down by the pool. Their menu tends to stay the same but if your staying for a week like we did you can try something new everyday and be ok. Food was great! Fresh and portions are quite large too.
Dinner: Enjoy a romantic sit down dinner downstairs. candles were lit on the tables music playing in the background. and their menu changes every night. They also have a celebrity chef there too! He's from the 6th season of "top chef," very friendly guy. There is a package you can buy to have a romantic dinner on the beach too! Very very nice...
Let me just say one thing before i start on the beach. GET BUG REPELLENT! This time of year there are bugs called "cant-see-ums" they are basically sand fleas. I got over 50 bites all over my legs, arms and back just from being on the beach. Hotel staff was kind enough to warn us along with a few other guests at the resort so I'm doing the same with everyone who reads this. This isn't a problem exclusive to the resort or anything its just the beaches down there period. No matter which one you go to...
The private beach there was great, quiet and relaxing. Only con i would say is that the beach is very rocky. If you want to enjoy it, wear some beach shoes otherwise its very difficult to walk around in the water.
The pools were very clean and cool. Not freezing and they didn't reek of chlorine which was nice. There are iguana's everywhere...so you will see alot of them down by the pool and swim up bar area. The swim up bar is great! Nelly makes the best drinks!! Ross and Felix are sweethearts too and love to talk to you about the local spots to visit! They made us feel very welcome!
I'd like to thank all the staff at Sugar bay for making our stay one we will never forget. Very kind and went out of there way whenever possible...Mrs. Webster at the mangrove restaurant, Ross, Felix, Evvone, Coral, Aaliyah,Nelly, Stephanie...wonderful wonderful people!
I'd recommend this resort to anyone who wants to have a great time on a budget. The resort has a movie theater, and activities daily you can enjoy. You'll have a ball here!! Go go go what are you waiting for!!
