We visited St. Thomas and Marriott's Frenchmen's Cove one year after Irma. My wife and two friends were coming back for the first time since we had spent a harrowing night at the Cove when Irma hit St. Thomas. When we left all the vegetation was gone, the beach was nothing but rocks, there was a sailboat sitting on the former beach, and there was no food or electricity. Coming back this year was amazing. Unbelievably the island was lush and green again. Most of the shops were open. All the rubble and downed poles and power lines were restored. The beach was back and good as new. And best of all the people were even more friendly and glad to see us. The rooms were all freshly painted and looked new again with some new appliances, as needed. We spent a lovely week here using the beach and enjoying the property will visiting the island.
We were so pleased that St. Thomas had recovered so well. There is more to be done to be sure. Most notebly the airport is completely functional and clean but a major upgrade is still underway. We would encourage anyone who has considered coming back and were detered by fears of hurricane damage to go on down to St. Thomas. You will enjoy it as much as ever.More
