Editor’s Review of Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort

Not to be confused with the highly rated Marriott Frenchman's Cove, the Marriott Frenchman's Reef and its smaller resort-in-a-resort, Morning Star Beach Resort, stands on a rocky point overlooking Charlotte Amalie Harbor. While families were rampant during my visit, the resort has closed its kids' club and is not certain when or where it will reopen. Instead, the only offerings to children are the Morning Star Beach, in a calm cove, and a pool that may or may not be closed for special events. Of the accommodations, the Morning Star Beach Resort is better suited for families, as it rests along the beach and does not require a shuttle or lengthy stair walk to get to the sandy shores. The rooms here are better suited to families, with more options ... more for connecting rooms and fitting larger families.
