Communication

Trip was booked in July. At the time, all amenities looked fabulous. However upon arrival we find out we were there in the "off season". Some amenities that were advertised were closed. Example no breakfast room service at Morning Star (where we stayed) and no breakfast served @ Coco Joe's which is located at Morning Star. Staff was reduced and there were long waits at Frenchman's Reef restaurants. We paid a lot of money and should have received the service for which we paid. All of this should have been communicated at the time of booking. A dream vacation, where one is waited on hand and foot wasn't exactly what this vacation was. DO's - Infinity pool (beautiful pool and view) but watch out for Iguanas; they will jump up after food and some will bite. Do NOT feed the iguanas. - Frenchman's resort ferries to town shopping (be prepared; you will spend money!) - The Red Hook ferry to St. John's (awesome beaches) - The Cat (dinner cruise and light show) - The spa and their private pool for the day - Food was good; try all restaurants - Waking up to the sound of the ocean and roosters for our alarm clock *****During off season we had the place pretty much to ourselves.

Worst all inclusive

Service was awful. No mint for mojito. Dirty filthy. Awful service long wait for anything. Unorganized. Worst all inclusive ever. Poor food and drink choices. Improperly billed. I was forgotten about 4 times.

Get what you pay for..

Overall the Marriott property is beautiful. Our room was booked with a king sized ocean view. Arrived to find they had us booked for a double oceanview. The receptionist kindly changed it but much to our surprise our oceanview was an oceanview which also overlooked the employee parking and trash compactor. We could see the port where cruise ships came in which was neat and the ships are incredibly quiet. The receptionist did not know what was included in the all inclusive. Dining...you can chooses between the different restaurants for specific meals. Once the server knows you are all inclusive they immediately bring bottled water instead of tap (which actually tastes better-the tap water), telling you get whatever you want-app, dinner, drinks, dessert, wine. They do this to up the bill so they get tipped more, which in turn costs you more! Also must specify no top shelf liquor as that is not included. They are very, very sneaky. Very kind...but sneaky as to getting more money out of you. The food, EH. Nothing to write home about. Nothing outstanding. If you want a GOOD meal, grab a taxi and go down to Red Hook. Check out XO Bistro-Delicious! There are also many bars there as well. When coming back grab a taxi but be sure it says Taxi on the roof. It should only cost $10! Don't get taken advantage of! The food at aqua terra is typically buffet style and is probably 2.5-3 stars out of 5. Ordered chocolate cake for dessert and received a pre-plated chocolate frosting something. Partially frown and far too sweet, definitely NOT cake. Chicken was way too salty. We ate at Coco Joes - good for pool munchies and drinks. Waitstaff spoke very broken English which made it difficult. Ordered Eggs Benedict for breakfast and my eggs were more like hard boiled eggs. Just not good. The pools and beaches are definitely what saves this resort. The beach is gorgeous but a hike to get to and from, but worth the walk. The pools, there are 3 plus the spa pool which you can only access if you use the spa. We had massages which were great and pedicures which were also great. The spa on its own is definitely a 4 out of 5. The resort is non smoking so if you're a smoker there are only 2 spots on the whole property.. Overall we had a nice time on a beautiful island but in the future will not be staying at the Marriott but will oat likely be staying at the Ritz.

All inclusive Fsmily Trip

We stayed from 8/3-8/7/15 We did the all inclusive option with a waterview room The Hotel was beautiful and the views were amazing! Our room had a view of the ocean with a nice balcony! The all inclusive option was well worth it and I recommend it! The hotel food and beverages were very pricey! We were able to eat 3 meals and had unlimited alcohol and non alcoholic beverages without worrying about the price! The food was outstanding and you had 2 choices of restaurants for each meal. The breakfast buffet was out of this world!! We had a party of 10 people and everyone loved the food ! Pros- beautiful views, pools and beach, all inclusive , great service Ferry available from hotel into town for small fee Spa was amazing! Pools have breath taking views Cons- no entertainment , difficult to get to beach a lot of steps to walk down to beach We can't wait to go back !!!

Hotel Description

Marriott Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort: Elegance in St. Thomas

Marriott Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort offer double the fun with tons of activities plus a spa to enjoy. With 4 pools and a half-mile beach you can stroll to, this resort has tons of choices for swimming and sunbathing. You can start your day at the pools followed by an afternoon at the beach on a lounger. Or, for a little more action, head out on a kayak, or slice through the ocean waves on a super-fast jet ski. Snorkeling is available for underwater adventures too. And if you love to golf, you're in luck! The Mahogany Run, an 18-hole course is just 4 miles from the hotel.

This Marriott beach resort is also home to LAZULE Spa. Check out indulgent body wraps and scrubs, or target specific areas in need of a little TLC with lip, eye, hair and scalp treatments. Soothe tired muscles with a massage, and then get your makeup done for a fancy dinner.

When you're feeling hungry, try some fresh seafood at Sunset Grill while you enjoy a great view of the harbor and pools. Or, if you're ready for that fancy dinner, make your way to Havana Blue for upscale Latin-fusion cuisine. If you'd rather take it easy, both the Marriott Frenchman's Reef and Morning Star Beach sides of the resort have markets where guests can pick up a snack or coffee when the mood strikes. Top off the evening with a night cap from the Rum Bar, which features terraced seating.

This recently updated resort overlooks beautiful Charlotte Amalie Harbor, which you can access via water taxis to check out duty-free shopping, dining, nightlife and more. Since the resort is on the beach and close to town, it's a fantastic choice for a Caribbean vacation.
