Special Family Features:

  • KidsKlub, a day-long, complimentary program for children ages 4 to 12. Children enjoy swimming, sandcastle building, arts and crafts, story telling, sing-alongs, and more.

Sapphire Village

Adjacent to the Sapphire Beach Resort, these condominiums offer full housekeeping units for busy families. Studio and one-bedroom suites all include a small kitchen, air-conditioning, TV, phone, in-room safe, private balcony, and maid service.

Guests can use the watersports facilities at the Doubletree, enjoying glass bottom boat rides, snorkeling, paddle boats, or even arranging a sail to the nearby British Virgin Islands.

The beach at Sapphire has long been cited as one of the best on St. Thomas and it’s not a claim without justification. A white swath of sand meets the turquoise sea and the waters remain shallow for many yards. A shallow reef comes within feet of the beach, perfect for young snorkelers.

Special Family Features:

  • Cribs are available for a small fee.
  • Kids under 12 stay free.
