Outstanding view. Personable office staff. Room was worse than a budget motel. Furniture was garage sale rejects. We had no water pressure to take a shower. The electrical in the room was unsafe. Extension cords and overloaded outlets. Mattress, pillows & linens were clean & comfortable. Thank goodness we only stayed one night!

Hi Dorthy, We appreciate you staying with us. As a leader it is disappointing to hear we did not meet your level of expectations during your stay. By chance did you share your feedback regarding the room condition with a front desk agent? If so, do you mind connecting with me and sharing their name. I wish we were given the opportunity to rectify this matter during your stay. On a brighter note I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the view and our front desk agents were accommodating. Over the next several months we will be upgrading our guestrooms. We hope you will give us another opportunity on your next trip to St. Thomas!

Staff was amazing. Room size was great and the view was spectacular! But the hotel itself is very outdated. The bathroom/shower was gross and had electrical wire going from sink light across shower!

Hi Katelin, Thank you for your review. We agree: our staff is exceptional and we take great pride in our team. We recently purchased the hotel and are working to help the hotel achieve its potential. We are investing considerable time and resources in the property but a full refresh does take some time. We hope to have the chance to host you in the future so you can see the new look Mafolie.

I was very pleased with this hotel from the location and amazing view to the very professional, helpful and kind staff. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call from Elizabeth, front desk staff, the day before my arrival to welcome me and answers questions that I had & provide a whole host of helpful suggestions. Then at arrival, George greeted us with a smile and even more suggestions. The whole entire staff was very accommodating and extremely nice. They made our 5 day stay perfect. Whenever I return for vacation on St Thomas I’d stay here again.

I don't usually write reviews because everyone should enjoy their own experiences, since that is what travel is all about to me; getting outside your comfort zone and seeing the world with fresh eyes. That being said, we (my wife and I) had never been to St Thomas before and upon arrival at Hotel Mafolie was surprised at the condition of the facility, the rooms, the location and the price. Clearly this is a property that has seen better days (It was established in 1953!) While the rooms were clean, beds and linens seemed newer, the rooms varied widely in both condition, size and view. The street in from of the hotel had a lot of somewhat noisy car and truck traffic. The pool area was nice and had gorgeous views of the harbor, bay and Charlotte Amolie. Unfortunately the pool bar was closed Monday and Tuesday - our 2 full days there. However, the longer we were there the more we enjoyed it! The staff was kind and helpful,(Chris, Layla, Armani), the food at the restaurant was fresh, well prepared and displayed (and delicious) and what we though was going to be a free "Continental Breakfast" turned into being a free, fully satisfying "American Style" breakfast. Happy hour at the restaurant bar was fun and entertaining, and while you would never mistake the Mafolie Hotel as a 5 star antiseptic mega-resort we thought it's colorful charm and views still may have been the best deal on the island. Close to town, stunning views, good food, helpful staff - the negatives, forgettable!

The Mafolie and their staff were amazing!! The hospitality, the atmosphere, the view, I just can not say enough great things about our stay! We really bonded with the staff and It was emotional when we had to leave. I will forever stay here whenever we return. Be sure to make reservations for the ledge dinner tables, everyone wants them for the best view!

Paradise reborn

We were not sure what to expect, and there is still some rebuilding to be done, but the Mafolie is a great spot with a spectacular view. Plan a little extra for taxi fair but well worth it!! The greatest attribute is the staff, always attentive and willing to assist or answer any question.
