This 21-room hotel right on Frederiksted Beach has long had a gay and lesbian following, but it’s welcoming to all, with friendly service and splendid sunset views. It has plenty of sociable public spaces, including two freshwater swimming pools (one being clothing optional) and the alfresco resort restaurant, Beach Side Café, a lively place to eat and drink that’s set right in the soft white sand. It’s a popular spot for live music on Saturday nights and meltingly lovely sunsets. Accommodations range from luxury beachfront villas with full kitchens and terra-cotta-tile floors to roomy courtyard suites around a private pool. Budget travelers will appreciate the good-value garden or queen studios—they may lack views (and full kitchens and elbow room), but they’re close to all the resort action.
