One night in St. Thomas
      #1694790 - 04/25/16 04:44 PM (98.124.102.203)

So this is really not working yet, so I'll try again.

A large group of us (15) are coming down next spring and will meet our boats at the Compass Point marina on St. Thomas at noon. It looks like we'll have to come in the night before (a Friday).

I did a little searching and EVERYTHING in the area from the airport over to Bolongo Bay seems to be going for $300+ a night. Am I missing something here?

I guess we could always go to the Windward Passage, but it was such a dump the last time we stayed there. I'm not enthused.

Is there something going on with hotel rates on St. Thomas? Are there no longer any accommodations for $200/night?

Did you check the ones recommended in the other thread? There are a number of places on the east end, not sure all 15 would be able to stay in one. Two Sandals, Paradise Cove, Harbour Beach...

You may be running into issues with pricing because the trip is so far off?

I see the same thing when I check airfares for a year out. April 2017 fares are 3x what early March are showing.

Check out rates for May 2016 for a good comparison.

I asked the same question of the BVI TTOL folks, and some said that Windward Passage has been renovated and got a good review from a fellow named "Manpot" whose posts and reviews are highly respected. With that info, we booked one night in late May and I'll check back in here with our experience.

Windward Passage is decent, especially for a short stay, pretty good breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice

It was a hell hole when we stayed there last July. Had to move rooms because a/c wasn't working. A/c didn't work any better in the second room. They didn't even have a simple fan to offer us. This also happened in June. We were many time repeat guests throughout the years, but we are officially done with them.

We've stayed at Emerald Beach before and I just called their reservations number to, as their website states, get the best rate. Phone rang several times then went to voice mail telling me to leave a message.

I used to stay at Emerald Beach 6-8 times a year, coming and going to STJ & Tortola. Now I stay at Island Beachcomber next door. The hotel is old and worn out but clean, nice little bar/restaurant, right on the beach and a lot less than anything nearby. It's a great place to relax after flying all day before heading over to the other islands. I always spend my last night there and get a late checkout so I can continue to relax until 2 hours before my flight....no guessing about ferries or taxis. Everyone I have told about this place says it's the best option for convenience.

We stayed at

last trip on our way into vacation. We paid $199 for a Sunday night in late March. It was clean and quiet. The renovation isn't complete but they seem to be working on it. The private porch off our room was huge. They also have a bar over the bay where you can enjoy the lights of St Thomas after dark.
