Definitely got our money's worth... A review of Bluebeard's Castle Resort
We stayed at the hotel before the renovations began and paid only $50 a night, so didn't necessarily have the highest expectations. Our room was basic, you could not say that it was beautifully decorated as at a luxury resort, but it was very large and clean and bright. Everything was well-kept and in good repair; no bugs or problems of any kind. We had a kitchenette and a roomy balcony with a gorgeous view of Charlotte Amalie and the harbor. The pool and jacuzzi area was pleasant -- there was no run-down feeling about the property at all. The pool area served as a central hub for hotel guests, since two of the restaurants and the bar were right there, too. We also had dinner one night at A Room With A View and it was lovely, a great meal and great service. We had a rental car, which was key to exploring the island and beaches. (We often took the car ferry over to St. John as well). No complaints about Bluebeard's Castle; for the price it was more than we'd hoped for!
