Property information by Travelocity
Antilles Resort at Crystal Cove is a beachfront hotel located approximately one mile from the town of Red Hook on Sapphire Beach. Ferries to Saint John and the British Virgin Islands are one mile away. Guests can enjoy the three tennis courts, swimming pool, and easy access to the beach, watersports, restaurants, and shops of Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina (next door). All rooms have air-conditioning, cable TV, ceiling fans, and kitchen facilities. It is required that you call 800-874-7897 or 340-775-2600 prior to arrival to discuss arrival time to the islands
Crystal Cove and the Sapphire Beach resorts are close to "dump" status. The Hotels, we were told, were sold and there is a power struggle with the new owners and lawsuits which has resulted in apparently little, if any, upkeep and maintenance; this is a real shame as one can tell they were no doubt beautiful properties/resorts at one time.
Grounds are rundown, furniture is 30 years old. Tennis courts weedstrewn and unmaintained, no restaurants, no ice, snack machines, not even a Coke vending machine. Last Coke machine was carted away by Coke on the day of our arrival.
No gift or snack shops at either place. Pool Bar/restaurant is boarded up with trash strewn about (open plastic trash bags picked open by animals just laying about. Stacks of metal, rusted chairs, more than 25, piled up apparently from the closed down pool and lobby bars for the entire time.
We stayed at Sapphire after refusing to stay at Crystal Cove. The bar off of the main hotel lobby sits closed up with rusted out equipment sitting there just OFF OF THE MAIN LOBBY, which you pass as you walk by for a view of the Beach.
Everything needs painting and updating. Just not even close to the false representation online of 3 stars; maybe a 1/2 star because the beach and ocean views are great. I guess after the business games are over, the new owner will knock these places down and build a resort worthy of the beautiful location.
I read reviews on Tripadvisor and it seems that everyone was crazy about this hotel. So i booked it through Yahoo travel. It turned out to be some kind of disappointment. The one-bedroom condo is pretty spacious for a family with 4 adults and a 23months old. It has two bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen(no dishwasher). We cooked our meals all the time since dinning out is rediculously expensive on the island. The hotel is right off the beach, the water is clear and the color of water is amazing. However the shortcomings are like these: first, the hotel room needs upgrade. The furnitures are shabby. Second We had maids only once in two days. Imagine we have a baby who had dirty diapers every day. And they didn't even provide us with enough shampoo! third, the view from our room is not good. We couldn't see any part of the sea at all. I guess most of the rooms in this hotel are like that. I bet the other hotel right next to it called "Sapphire beach resort" would have much better views. And the hotel's tiny beach is OK but not so great. There were a lot of pebbles and even rocks on the beach which hurt your feet.
Anyway, though we were kind of disappointed by the hotel, we had a nice vacation. The sunshine and water of Carribean are great!
