Tiny beachfront with no sand; guests have to use the beach
Large, hillside property requires a lot of walking
No fitness center
Following the impact of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria in September 2017, the property has reopened to guests. However, travelers should note that several features, including the spa, fitness center, two of the pools, Shoreline Bar & Grille, and Water Bay are temporarily unavailable.Additionally, there is currently no internet, cable, or phone service in villas. The upper-middle-range Point Pleasant Resort is a large, spacious hillside property on the East End of the island, a convenient, scenic location close to Red Hook's restaurants and shopping. Features include three pools, an on-site restaurant, and a spa. The villas are privately owned and managed, with varying decor, but each unit is spacious with a large living room and fully equipped kitchen. There is a small but rocky beach in front of the property that doesn’t have much room for lounging, but guests are free to use the beach next door at Sugar Bay Resort. The kitchen-equipped condos at the mid-range Paradise Cove are cheaper, but the property has only one small pool and is not on the beach.
Point Pleasant Resort is set on a 15-acre hilltop preserve. Guests enter the property at the main road, then long, winding roads lead to different areas of the resort, which then descends
to the water on the other side of the hill. The property has gorgeous mountain
and sea views throughout. There are many stone walkways, steps, and hills
throughout the resort, and it’s not recommended for folks with mobility issues.
Because of the size of the property, it never feels crowded.
Many guests report having any of the three pools to themselves or only sharing
with one or two other guests.
Point Pleasant represents a good balance of private, condo-style
living and resort-style amenities, including a restaurant and spa on-site. The
guests are mixed with couples, families, and groups. The fully-equipped
kitchens and spacious living areas are good for long stays.
Point Pleasant Resort is located on the East End of the
island, known for its beaches and snorkeling. The resort is a five-minute drive
from Red Hook, a small, quaint town with great restaurants, shopping, and the
ferry to St. John. The hotel is a 20-25-minute drive from the airport and
Charlotte-Amalie, depending on traffic.
Like most hotels in St. Thomas, there is not much within
walking distance, and the narrow,
winding mountain roads are not pedestrian friendly. Taxis charge per person and
can add up quick. A car rental is recommended.

Like many properties in the area, the units at the resort
are individually owned and managed through different companies; therefore the
décor and maintenance of the rooms vary. All of the villas are spacious and
attractive. The furniture is not exactly contemporary but beachy and colorful
with bright cushions, wicker wood, and colorful accents. The kitchens are
beautifully updated with marble counters and new appliances. The units have
private balconies that offer terrific ocean views.
The kitchens have pots, pans, glasses, dishes, and cooking
and eating utensils, as well as microwaves, toasters, and coffeemakers. Some
kitchens even have thoughtful upgrades, like a Panini press or George Foreman
grill. All units have a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, A/C, and a safe.
The resort has three pools on different levels of the property. The upper pool is accessed down a steep stone walkway (the steps were cut into the natural rock) and is situated in the interior of the property. This pool offers beautiful views of the surrounding hills. There is shade from trees on two sides of the pool while the other two are open to the sun. Lounge chairs are lined up around the pool and it is quiet and relaxing. The middle pool is also quiet, and has great sea and mountain views and a decent-size deck with loungers. The lower pool is more open and not as nicely landscaped, but sits right on the water and has great bay views. The restaurant and bar is located down a short set of stairs, which makes it easy to get drinks by the pool.
The resort has a tiny beachfront that doesn’t have much sand and is rocky, but guests can use the beach at Sugar Bay Resort next door. The beach can be accessed through the road or through the water, by swimming around a rock barrier. For guests who want a resort situated on a spacious beach, nearby Sapphire Beach Hotel and Crystal Cove Beach Resort are a good bet.
Shoreline Bar & Grille is located on the lowest level of the resort, near the pool. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in an open-air, waterside environment and has a bar. There is also a restaurant by the middle pool that serves all three meals.
The Point Wellness Spa is located on the upper level and has beautiful views of the island and lots of natural light. The spa offers massages, a sauna, manicures and pedicures, and yoga.
