I just returned from St. Thomas and would highly recommend the hotel and island. The rooms were very clean and updated. We only had dinner at the hotel one night and came away disappointed. We rented a car and went to different bays and islands during the week. The beach at the hotel is very nice but the location is not ideal for snorking. so get away and enjoy the island. We plan on returning the next year.
Have been to St.T/St.J six or seven times--leaving in 10 days to return for the first time in seven years. I'm glad to see that F'sRf continues to be a good vacation experience. I didn't see your post until AFTER I wrote to the honeymooners; what a coincidence--like you, I urged them to get in a car and see the beauty of the 2 islands. Would you know if Craig and Sally's restaurant is still in Frenchtown?
