Has anyone stayed at Frenchman's Cove recently?

    I'm wondering where they are with getting everything back after the hurricane, both at hotel and timeshare.

    I was there in Aug 2018. The MFC is back up and running. They were replacing sofa beds when I was there. Rooms and resort itself were great! The beach needed more sand back in August. The neighboring hotels right now are in full on construction. They won’t be finished for a while. There were lots of restaurants open, beaches looked pretty good considering. I loved it so much I’m buying a week there. I think 2020 was the date for hotel reopening, but I’m not sure.

    I was there 13 months ago.
    The timeshare seemed completely recovered and fully running.
    The hotel was closed, lots of damage.
    I believe they were hoping to reopen late 19 or early 20.

    We were just at Ritz STT last month -- the Ritz hotel was still closed (hoping to open by the end of the year) but Marriott Frenchman's Reef (the hotel) was supposed to be closed for awhile longer. The longer rumor is that they've not settled the insurance obligation for the hurricane damage and that no restorations had yet begun. I hope to visit MFC one of these days (St Thomas rocks) and will hope the hotel re-opens, as I love timeshares that share the hotel amenities.

    Best,

    Greg

    So the only pool access you had was just at the Cove pool. I love the pool at the Hotel, on the cliff. It is so beautiful. I'm planning to go back in June 2020. I sure hope it is completed. Thanks everyone for the replies

    We bought a 3BDRM Gold and went in early July 2018 and really loved the resort. I think we'll wait until the hotel is up and running for our next trip because i can see how even better FC would be when hotel is fully functional.
