St Thomas Elysian or Secret Harbour

Jump to last reply

We have a trip planned to St. Thomas in March. We (my husband and two kids, ages 18 and 15) are looking for a two bedroom condo/resort type unit right on the beach. I have narrowed the choices down to Elysian and Secret Habour, with the cost difference for the 9 nights we are staying coming in around $1900.0. It sounds like the beach area at Secret Harbour is nicer, but we don't get the chance to choose our particular unit, and would prefer to be 2nd or 3rd level with an updated unit. I have not asked to see if they honor room requests. Pool at Elysian looks nicer, and we usually spend some time in the pool, but beach is not as nice? And with Elysian, we will use VRBO. We will have a rental car and may drive to some other beaches also, but I still would like a nice swimming beach outside of our room area. Restaurants, tennis, location all seem to be about the same. Can anyone share additional information about the two places? Or has anyone stayed at both recently? The price difference seems significant, so I am wondering if that is also an indication of quality or is Elysian just a great bargain?
