St Thomas hotel near the Ritz

My brother-in-law is getting married in April at the Ritz Carlton. My husband and I are so excited about making a vacation out of it, unfortunately we can not afford to stay at the Ritz for the whole time.

Can someone recommend a hotel, B&B, villa, condo... that is near the Ritz Carlton. We would love some place that is nice, but less expensive than the Ritz Carlton. Preferably under $200/night.

Thank You

Try the Elysian. Let me see if I can find a website.

It's right by the Ritz with all kinds of condos. I didn't see what the rates are but you can contact the resort through the site:

One more thing - the restaurant there, Robert's is very good at brunch so I assume the other meals are just as good.

This is a timeshare place but you can rent anything from a studio to a full-size condo.

Thank you Carrybean, that looks perfect. Unfortunately it looks like they are all booked on my dates. April 16-20 2007. I checked their website, hotels.com and expedia, but no luck.

Try Pavilions and Pools:

I believe they are near the Ritz and rooms (with a private pool) will run about $190 per night.

Pavilions & Pools is a few miles away. I don't know the rates for Secret Harbour but that's closer. Keep checking back with Elysian. Might be a cancellation.

I may be misinterpreting, but from the sound of your post, you have only checked on line for availability???? If so, I would give them a call directly. You will likely have better luck that way.

Yes, you better call them! My place is not even linked to hotels.com yet they continue to say I have no rooms available for the date required. Sort of helping out those that pay them I guess. I have tried to have them rescind it to no avail!

hi x, you are going to have a wonderful time at the ritz. its a beautiful hotel, with a great view of st. john, etc. i have stayed just down the street at www.secretharbourvi.com a couple of times and enjoyed that very much. they have a good restaurant, the blue moon cafe and fun beach bar. all the units are large! condo style with patio or balcony. the beach is really nice and has good snorkleing.

Thank you all very much. I will call the places directly too. I did not realize they only help those who pay, sneeky little buggers!
Secret Harbor looks perfect. I will give them a call too.
