Trip Report St. Thomas Holiday

Jump to last reply

I have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at Marriott Morningstar on St. Thomas. In the past, I have used this place for just a couple days for shopping and dining. Having just five days, I decided to stay there for the entirity of this trip.

Morningstar is lovely being directly on the beach with beautifully manicured lawn and gardens. There are just five separate two and three story buildings with 140 rooms, creating and aire of privacy and intamacy. My gardenview room was clean and lovely complete with an automatic icemaker and electronic safe. The staff were efficient and friendly with the front desk always addressing me by name.

The big improvement is the food!. I was told they have a new executive chef who obviously did much to make such a positive difference. My favorite meals there were the Thai grilled beef salad, (I had it for lunch thre times), at Frenchman's reef Sunset grill, Ahi grilled tuna salad, Cruzan rum coconut shrimp, and the Prime Rib, lobster/seafood buffet, breakfast fruit platter at Morningstars Coco Joes, in addition to the breakfast buffet at Frenchman s Reef, Windows.

That being said, the creme de le creme of my dining experienceswas at Havanna Blue. There, food is brought to an art form in both taste and presentation I had dinner there twice and my only regret was not having this experience at least one more time. Every dish was fabulous along with their very extensive wine list, and superb unique, multi choice margaritas, To me this is the best restaurant on the British/US Virgin Islands, and would be challenging to fine other comparable restaurants any where.

I am very happy that i spent my all too short trip there. It was a most enjoyable stay.
