We truly enjoyed our stay at Bluebeard's Castle as a timeshare exchange. The resort is clean and well-maintained. Our unit was spacious and clean and comfortable, and we had a beautiful view of the harbor, mountainside, and downtown Charlotte Amalie. The lack of an oven in the kitchen of our specific unit surprised us. I cannot say whether other units... More

We have a timeshare condo (a studio) at Bluebeards - one week - thinking about selling that and upgrading to a larger unit. This is a very nice resort with4 restaurants and 3 bars, a nice pool and a beautiful view!

We stayed at the North Villas III - if you don't expect much you will enjoy your stay. The 1 bedroom studio with pull out sofa does not have a privacy door so make sure you love the people you're sharing the room with. In addition there's no "balcony" as some sites promise.

The Staff at the Bluebeard Castle seem so very unhappy. They are very cold and rude. I don't know why they are so unhappy here, but it saddens me to see their misery.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bluebeard's Castle is an historic property dating back to the 1600's. The resort occupies an entire hilltop with spectacular views overlooking the harbor and town of Charlotte Amalie. Its signature red rooftops are among the first sights for arriving cruise passengers.The resort includes a centuries-old fortress bearing the name "Bluebeard," after the infamous pirate, and check-in takes place in the former residence of the Danish governor of the island. This tropical paradise is the perfect place for a private getaway as it is set on a secluded hilltop and overlooks the harbor of St. Thomas. Bluebeard's Castle is centrally located in the most desirable part of the island with world class shopping minutes away. With only a short drive from some of the most popular beaches in the Caribbean where you can enjoy boating, scuba diving, snorkeling and windsurfing. The island itself offers a wonderful assortment of duty-free shopping, world-class restaurants (including the top-rated ROOM WITH A VIEW on location!), hot night spots, and a variety of local flavor to satisfy every taste. This resort features history, breathtaking views, and easy access to town. Beaches are literally minutes away so you can visit them all including easy ferry rides to St. John and the British Virgin Islands (Tortola and Virgin Gorda). You will see why owners at the resort are passionate about their units. It is this passion that will once again be the reason that Bluebeard's Castle will become a sought after destination resort. Many lucky RCI members will take advantage of this now! The resort is in the midst of a historic multi-million dollar remodel that will change all that you have heard. The proof is found in our regular maintenance reports as well as our news and picture sections. Also, schedules of on-resort dining are now posted in these reports. Owners are excited about what the future holds and you should be as well. Spread the word. ... more   less
