This family-run resort is a casual, barefoot place to stay. A complex of pink two-story buildings, it’s built around a crescent-shaped beach on the sands of Bolongo Bay. That means plenty of watersports activities (even scuba-diving lessons), so many guests check in on the European Plan, which includes watersports activities and even a scuba-diving lesson. Others opt for all-inclusive plans that include all meals, drinks, excursions, and more. Both are good values, especially for St. Thomas. Rooms are simple, summery, and filled with comfortable furniture and a fridge—and all face the beach, with a balcony or terrace opening up onto the beach. Nine two-bedroom condos, in a three-story building, have full kitchens and are ideal for families of up to five. Onsite are two lively restaurants, including Iggies. A final enticement? The resort is known for its Wednesday-night Carnival, held from November through Labor Day, with a Caribbean buffet, calypso music, and Moko Jumbie stilt dancers.
