Beautiful St. JohnPosted Jun 11, 2017
Pros: Natural setting on the hillside, far from town. No feeling of being a tourist! Complete calm and tranquility. and
Cons: Kitchenware and living/dining area furnishing should be updated
Location: Remote location. Nature walk to the bay/beach. Nearby restaurants. Most of the activities on the island are a half hour away or more.
I selected Concordia Eco Resort so that I could stay in the USVI National Park. I am not 100% certain that the hotel is in the park, but you certainly get to travel throughout the park on your way to and from the hotel. You definitely need a car/jeep if you are staying at this hotel since the hotel is on the far side of the island from the ferry. It is lovely, but somewhat rustic. It is nestled into a hillside overlooking the water, surrounded by lush vegetation. The rooms are comfortable, but old. I had some problems with hot water on both mornings, but it was quickly addressed. There were no housekeeping services. The restaurant was closed when I was there which was inconvenient for breakfast. Meals were obtainable within 3 miles of the hotel. There are no telephones in the rooms and WiFi was only available poolside and at the registration desk. I was delighted to attend one of the National Park Ranger programs ON SITE. As it was the Star Gazing, I would otherwise not have been able to attend since the roads around the island are challenging to drive during the day and there are no streetlights! If you want to stay in a natural setting and are not looking for a luxurious setting, this is the hotel for you. The prices are luxurious, but the facility is not! All said, I was very comfortable and safe (traveled alone) and enjoyed communing with nature at this hotel.

Beautiful luxury "camping" experiencePosted Mar 20, 2017
Pros: The eco-friendliness & of course the natural beauty preserved throughout, the hermit crabs were very entertaining, and the staff were super helpful
Cons: The hand-washing soap in the bathroom said it was anti-bacterial which was disappointing as its known to have negative effects on the ecosystem.
Location: We didn't leave the resort at all during our short stay as there was plenty to do there, but we would like to go to nearby restaurants in the future.
My boyfriend and I stayed in an Eco-Studio for 2 nights and had a really hard time leaving at the end of our short stay. We are from Minnesota and do a fair amount of real camping (tents, campfires, etc) in the Midwest, but have never been to USVI before and had no idea what to expect. Overall, we both loved the studio we stayed in and plan on returning for a longer stay in the future. I don't think either of us could do anything closer to camping on the islands because of the climate. It was about 80 deg. and sunny every day of our stay and only dropped 2-4 deg. at night. This was 70 deg. hotter than where we came from, so the fans in the studio were certainly appreciated. The strong ocean breeze also kept us from overheating in the sun and we couldn't have asked for better weather. The view from our balcony was absolutely gorgeous, day and night, and we couldn't get enough of it. During the day, beautiful forest, wildlife, and ocean views and at night, more stars in the sky than I had ever seen before. At night there were a few bugs (type of ants and gnats maybe) inside even though we always kept the front door and the screen door shut, but they were harmless, minor nuisances. The screen door was floppy and not firmly on the track, so that might be how they got in. The hike down to the beach was much further and steeper than I expected, but it was absolutely worth it! Snorkeling in Salt Pond Bay was fantastic! We saw more marine life than I can list here!

Nice but not easily accessiblePosted Feb 26, 2017 on Hotels
The place is nice and it is an eco resort, however the location is remote. If you are not driving, finding a taxi to get to & from cruz bay is a bit expensive and difficult.

High expense for campingPosted Dec 29, 2016
Know what you're buying. It's basically the equivalent of a tent trailer in the tree tops. As others have said, go for the premium views and breezes. Staff was kind, beautiful snorkeling at Salt Pond Bay. We survived without a car, but it was challenging regarding groceries. Absolutely everything on St. John seems to be double the price as home.

Wish we would have stated longerPosted Mar 22, 2016
Pros: The rooms had a great view and were clean. The pool was also nice.
Cons: Our screen door was not working and sometimes there was a sewage odor. Also there were old abandoned walkways lying around that made areas look tacky.
The studio had a breathtaking view. Nice deck to sit out on and enjoy the scenery. The cooking facilities were adequate and clean. Enough pots and pans. The trail to salt pond was rugged but relatively short.

Nature at its bestPosted Mar 10, 2016
Wonderful if you want to be one with nature. Other guests were UB a suite which is like a little condo and wanted our tent experience. Would do it all again.

First time at ConcordiaPosted Feb 26, 2016 on Hotels
We stayed in a beautiful Ocean Queen with a great deck and gorgeous water views but overlooked the pool. Next time, we'd stay in one of the premium eco-tents, which have fewer amenities but are more remote and probably a little quieter.

Hotel for the hikers, hippies and happy campers.Posted Feb 25, 2016
We had a great time at this place. We stayed in an eco-tent and would highly recommend it to campers and hikers. Very close to hiking trails beaches and snorkeling. Not for high maintenance hotel seekers or people that lounge in hotel rooms during the day.

Posted Feb 15, 2016
Pros: We really liked that it was set on a hillside and also that it was fairly secluded. It had multiple trails for hiking and running by the ocean.
Cons: In our unit it was difficult to tell how full our water basin for the showers were but other than that it was great.
Location: It was nice to be so close to one of the south shore beaches. I would recommend renting a Jeep if you stay here to travel to the north side beaches.
It was a great experience. I would describe the lodging as a well built tree house overlooking the ocean, beautiful terrain, and other islands of the Virgin Islands. The units were fully equipped with a mini stove, refrigerator, sink and bathroom/shower hut right next to the unit.
