If you click on the red "recovery blog" link at the top of this page and then the "hotel property updates" link in the center of the next page there is a brief description of most properties.

Hello juju,

I heard that Frenchman's Cove did OK compared to its sister properties Frenchman's Reef and Morningstar which received a lot of damage. I understand that people (management and others) are staying at some of the units at the Cove. We don't have much more info right now.

Their website says "The Marriott’s Frenchman’s Cove is currently closed due to Hurricane Irma. For assistance with reservations, please contact (800) 228-9290. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

Thank you for using

Update from Frenchman's Cove: "We have been striving to have the property restored to pre-storm conditions prior to welcoming our first Owners and guests back. The resort is currently scheduled to reopen on February 16, 2018, although the exact reopening date is subject to change. Some resort amenities will open at a later date. Please note that not all villas will be available for immediate guest occupancy, as the resort team is still completing restoration work in a few remaining villas. At this time, we anticipate that resort amenities available upon reopening will include the swimming pool, Marketplace, check-in services and the kids’ activities center. We are also happy to report that the pool bar and grill will be open as they were prior to the hurricanes. Because we have not received government approval to bring new sand onto the resort, the beach has not been fully restored to its former splendor. However, Owners and guests will still be able to gain access to the water. Also, Owners and guests will see some construction activity occurring around the resort property, including façade painting, elevator repair, landscape work and general debris removal. Our resort team is committed to minimizing the impact of these recovery efforts. The island of St. Thomas continues to go through a lengthy recovery process."
