Is Frenchman's Reef/Cove open
Has it reopened following the hurricane?
The Marriott Frenchman’s Cove is currently open and taking reservations. The sister hotel Marriott Frenchman's Reef is currently under construction.
We arrived shortly after the June re-opening of Frenchman's Cove. The services were limited (housekeeping, store, bar) but we were told that ahead of time. The market store opened the week we arrived the pool bar the second week. The staff always wore masks and were cordial. Some of the guests our second week were less careful, especially with social distancing at the pool. St Thomas has limited ICU beds and is doing their the best to avoid a COVID breakout. The adjacent Marriott was pretty much destroyed in the hurricanes. The company that now runs it has stopped all construction with no commitment for a resumption date. Beach at FC is not the best (pathway through the otherwise rocky shore) but otherwise is fine. The water is beautiful. We preferred driving to Magen's beach, about 15 minutes away. I also recommend taking the car ferry to St Johns. It is best to make reservations online before going.
