Sapphire sits on a half-mile sandy beach in St. Thomas. Spacious suites and villas feature private balconies, full kitchens and dining areas — perfect for families. Depending on which accommodation you choose, your family will have either a beach view or the resort’s yacht harbor view. A multi-level freshwater swimming pool overlooks the ocean, while the upper section functions as a children’s pool. Sapphire also provides complimentary snorkeling gear, sailboats and windsurfers to use at the beach. Other water sports equipment is also available for a fee, including diving lessons and parasailing. The town of Red Hook provides dining options and grocery stores.

Grabbed a bacon egg and cheese bagel sandwich and cold brew here. Cold brew was strong (one of the characteristics I expect of cold brew) and the breakfast sandwich was delicious. The bagel wasn't overly toasted and the bacon was perfectly crisp.
Giving 5 stars because the staff was very friendly (when I asked them about the Full Moon party they were happy to explain it and recommend other places too).
If you get something to eat here make sure you bring it to the bar that overlooks the water (see photo). I promptly spilled my cold brew all over myself and table and one of the bartenders went and got another one for me at no charge. So nice.

Beautiful place , located a few min drive to red hook where there are bars ,restaurants and the ferry to St. John. Our condo was beautiful and equipped with everything we needed. Only down side is beach bar closes at 6. Would have been great if it was open until maybe 8 but heard that’s never gonna happen. Not a deal breaker we would definitely go back and stay there. Pool is gorgeous, the beach is a little rocky so bring water shoes.
