Historical Traveller Reviews of Point Pleasant Resort Hotel
Loved This Place!from A TripAdvisor Member
Private, quiet, breath-taking views, comfortable furniture, well equipped kitchen. We loved the fact we never had to run the air conditioner; enjoyed fantastic breezes and the sound of ocean waves.
Two excellent restaurants on the grounds. I found it refreshing to stay at a resort where you navigated small, winding walking trails with native flora to get to the pool, beach, restaurants. After Point Pleasant we stayed at the Marriotts Frenchman's Reef for 5 nights, and were so disappointed there; half the room at twice the price. We're definitely returning to Point Pleasant & will stay longer next trip.

Enjoyed a quiet timefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Point Pleasant is not super luxurious and is a bit overgrown but we really enjoyed the little suite with a kitchen where we could cook for ourselves rather than pay expensive taxis to eat out at expensive restaurants. The rooms are swept/wiped and trash removed every day.
Beds are changed three times a week. The mattress was a bit spartan. My wife found it more comfortable to sleep on the couch which had big comfy cushions. The room was clean enough though the grout in the bathroom had been repaired in a very straightforward way. We found no sand in the bed except for when we trailed it in ourselves wih wet feet from the beach.
The taxis are not THAT expensive because nowhere is really that far, but they operate like buses in that they charge per person and if you use them all the time it adds up. They seem to have consistent fixed rates. We had no luck in trying to negotiate except one very nice retired cabbie who offered us a good price because he was basically on his way home at the end of his shift. Mostly we used the dollar bus which runs a circle route from the airport to the east end and back crossing over itself at a mall witha couple of supermarkets. The K-Mart was awful, the other one had good fruit and veg. The best place for groceries was the little market in Red Hook. You get on the bus anywhere and when you get off you give the driver a dollar. I found that if you were nice to other people they were nice to you except for thoughtless self-obsessed teenagers :-) It's obviously tough for the locals to be cheerful when they are surrounded by people who are relatively extremely wealthy and on holiday when they themselves are not. This mostly manifests in people preferring to look away and not talk to you. No one was actually rude.
We had fair luck in finding places to eat, mostly by asking locals for advice. Off The Hook by the Red Hook ferry terminal had terrific (sea)food and service. Fungi's was fine. The Agave Terrace was superb.
Cuzzins and Gladys' Cafe in Charlotte Amalie were excellent too.
Everywhere was expensive.
We visited friends getting married at Frenchman's Reef resort. WHile the resort was luxurious I think I would have resented the price and especially the price of food and drinks.
We went diving most days and were incredibly impressed by how knowledgeable, professional and courteous the staff at Chris Sawyer's were. We certified before going and had a wonderful time. They went out of their way to ensure we had a variety of different dives. The visibility was excellent and the terrain varied. The dive on the Rhone was a great day's trip and a wonderful introduction to diving a wreck.
Coki beach is postcard perfect and has great snorkelling. St. John's is a beautiful day trip with one perfect beacj after another. A $3 twenty minute ferry ride and we hired a car for the day. Highest speed limit is 25 and they are not joking there a very few places you would want to do more on the steep winding roads.
We would have to save up, but we would go back for the diving, the views the seafood and the tranquil seaside suite.

We called the front desk a few times for information and never received any help. Some units have a trek to and from the shared beach. Would never go back.

You get what you pay forfrom A TripAdvisor Member
This resort doesn't have it's own beach but the beach at the adjacent hotel is nice and just a short walk (approx 50 yards) away. It's a nice place to stay for the price you pay...

Top Local Tips for Charlotte Amalie
Fun and Yummy Off the Hook Restaurant in Redhook. Wonderful food but expensive. Great for a nice dinner out. Make a reservation during high season. Duffy's Love Shack Restaurant and Bar in Redhook. It's in a parking lot which seems weird but the food is decent, prices are reasonable, waitstaff are fun and it makes for a good time.
Dont make the same mistake as me Keep on going to Tortola
Rent a car, but only if you have a good sense of direction and adventure We rented our car, but I could not have handled driving. It was very confusing getting to our hotel after dark.
