Historical Traveller Reviews of Point Pleasant Resort Hotel

Loved This Place!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at Point Pleasant 3 nights in early Feb., & loved it!
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.

We had a good time

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I just stayed at Point Pleasant for 8 days (1/28 to 2/5 in F10). While it is true that the resort could use maintenance I noticed that the upper buildings are being painted and it seems much is being done. I was at first disappointed in condition but after a couple days got over it. The staff was wonderful with Eartha, Willie, Desmond and everyone treating us very well. The food at both Agave Terrace and Fungi's was excellant. I heard while there that Point Pleasant had been purchased by the Antilles Group recently, apparently an investment group who is now working to improve the property. All in all it was a good experience and we would go back. The green Iguanas are very interesting to watch and the area is beautiful. I would go back.

Enjoyed a quiet time

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Point Pleasant from Oct 31st to Nov 12th 2003 in unit F-10. We enjoyed our quiet, private unit with its tucked away little balcony looking out northeast to sunrise over the bay. We were just a few steps from Fungi's bar on the beach and best of all only a few hundred yards from Chris Sawyer's Dive Shop along the beach at the Marriott (now changed ownerhip to something Sea Palace).

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.

Obviously no upkeep has been done on these places for quite some time.
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.

What A Dump!

from artful9
We just returned from our very disappointing stay (Dec. 2003) and we STRONGLY recommend you book elsewhere. Upon checking out we met numerous other guests that had a list of broken promises and complaints of every sort, as did we. Our junior suite, E9, was a dirty with a sleeping arrangements other than advertised; not a suite as promised and to say poorly maintained -- is an understatement. Saying that the entire property is "tired" is also an understatement. The hotel desk manager was unhelpful and had no interest in guests concerns. The nature paths are overgrown, contain trash, and are unstable and unsafe.
Please do your self a favor and skip the Point Pleasant Experience!

Point Pleasant Resort St. Thomas

from jan59
We stayed in unit C-6 at Point Pleasant 11/8/2003 through 11/12/2003 and were satisfied. Other resorts were more expensive; however, this superior suite was spacious with beautiful views and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. It has a wrap around terrace with terrific views. The suite was clean, with a comfortable king size bed and a fold out sofa bed. It was nice to be able to cook and eat in. The funky bar, Fungi's was below us, as well as a swimming pool. We enjoyed lounging on the terrace in the late evening and listening to the music from Fungi's. It was convenient to walk along the water's edge to Coki Beach and Coral World. On the down side, the bathtub drain was a little slow to empty and the tv channels sporadic with few choices. I didn't mind these minor deficiencies and would stay at PP again.

Point Pleasant Was Not Very Pleasant

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at Point Pleasant from Oct. 28-Nov. 1, 2003. If I had it all to do over, I would not have stayed here. The help was not helpful and whenever we had a problem or asked for anything we were always told to check back in the morning. It seemed like no one at the front desk wanted to assist in any way. That was very frustrating. The units are old and outdated. Our bedroom window had no curtains or blinds and we found it very difficult to sleep. The shower and bathroom were very old and dirty. The one thing the resort has going for it is the view from each room, but spend a little more on a better resort and drive to the top of a hill to get a view. The pictures of this resort on the website are too complimentary.

You get what you pay for

from A TripAdvisor Member
Went there September, 2003 with friends. The views at Sapphire Beach are great, but what views on St. Thomas aren't?? The rooms are mediocre and VERY outdated. Each room appears to have it's only private balcony which was a nice touch. The resort is in a VERY hilly area and we were worn out just walking to go to lunch - at least 500 stairs one way.
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...

Beautiful foilage and real Caribbean Flavor

from St_Paul_MnHockeymom
I have seen the reviews that are on these websites concerning Point Pleasant. Most of them are old, and they have really went through a facelift since Antilles Management took over. Most condos that are in the rental program have been updated, or are being updated. New staff has been in place for about 1 year now. I have been there 3 times this past year, and have truly been impressed at the transformation to bring this property up to where it was ( a showcase in the 1980's). The beach is shared with Marriott Renaissance which is typical around the Caribbean. They are the only two resorts in this private bay and it is perfectly nice. Point Pleasant has the views that even the Marriott (because their resort is tucked away) don't have. Enjoy this resort for the natural setting, location, and beautiful views.

Wonder ocean view!

from YourConcierge
The resort is perched on top of a high hill over looking the ocean. The rooms have kitchens and nice balconies. Point Pleasant has one of the best restaurants (The Agave) on the island with a great view. Try the lobster bisque and the chocolate tart desert. The resort has a concierge located on the beach by Fungi's Restaurant that is helpful to plan day trips. The snorkel trip to the British Virgin Islands was great.

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.
