This luxurious retreat – overlooking Great Bay on St. Thomas' eastern coast – offers a wide array of high-end amenities. Each of The Ritz's bright, canary-colored guest rooms features a private balcony or terrace, a 42-inch HD TV, high-speed Internet access and marble bathrooms with soaking tubs. Despite the lavish accommodations (and top-notch service), recent guests claim this Ritz-Carlton outpost's best feature is its enviable location. Outdoor pursuits range from sailing on the resort's luxury catamaran to hitting the links on a George and Tom Fazio-designed off-site golf course, located about 7 miles from the resort. Should you prefer to stay on the resort's grounds, imbibe in a soothing treatment at the property's Mediterranean-style spa or lounge by the 125-foot free-form infinity pool (one of several swim spots found at The Ritz-Carlton). Afterwards, savor an authentic Caribbean, American or seafood-centric meal at one of the four oceanfront dining venues. If you're worried about breaking the bank, you can relax knowing that Marriott Rewards points can help curb costs. more

Since the 17th century, The Buccaneer has been welcoming guests to its charming retreat along St. Croix's picturesque northern coast. Guest rooms are elegant and simplistic in design, featuring bright blue, green and salmon-colored decor and modern amenities like satellite TVs, DVD players, minifridges and private patios or balconies. Although it lacks ultra-luxurious amenities, like lavish bath products and Jacuzzi tubs, previous visitors say they felt completely relaxed and comfortable thanks to the hotel's accommodating staff and numerous family-friendly activities. While the youngters make new friends at the Kid's Camp, adults can take a swing at the 18-hole Buccaneer Golf Course or turn up the romance on a sunset sail for two. Recent guests gave The Buccaneer's cuisine mixed reviews, saying the breakfast offered variety but the three on-site restaurants were subpar for the price paid.  more
