Does that hotel still exist? IMPORTANT


I am going to be visiting St thomas in February. Weekend at Bernie's II is my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE. ihave been reading to find what hotel it was where it was filmed. it was stouffers like you said and i heard it closed under renaissance grand beach resort. I heard they were making the Hotel into timehsares sadly. Can someone tell me what you know about this because i wanted to badly come by and visit where the hotel was so i could compare waht i saw and just see it basically because it is really cool. Does anyone know if it ahs been knocked down or whats going on? its so sad they closed...

Cause I was picturing a foreign guy saying this movie was his favorite because the movies he gets in his country are so s*itty.

I thought he was asking if you were American because your post was really difficult to understand, and hard to read. It's an honest mistake. If it were written utilizing correct grammar, perhaps more people would understand it.

The chances of you going to the exact villa where this was filmed would be challenging. It was filmed on both St. Thomas and St. John, and chances are high this was a stage, a fabricated set, just like Bernies house from the first movie. You'd have to do some research to find out if that particular villa is even a true local. (It may resemble other facilities, and it's also possible some of the shots were done "not on location.")

Because there aren't any good movies outside the US of A?

There's so many freakin hotels on that island. But I do know that most of the beach scene's were on Magen's Bay, St. Thomas. I've personally walked on that beach. I recommend seeing it.

Its 2 years old topic but Ill post it anyways.

According to the end credits of The Producers Wish to Thank-

You will notice there is only one resort. It is called Stouffers Grand Beach Resort in Virgin Island (St. Thomas Hotels).

Now, it said to be closed and no longer to be in business. Not sure if this is accurate but you can call them by check this link-

Not sure if you care anymore, but it's called Pineapple Village. Were you able to find it during your visit? It's been opened and closed several times.

As one other person mentioned, the hotel is Stouffers Grand Beach Resort in St Thomas. Below is an Article from the Detroit Free Press in 2010 about the closed hotel. The hotel had been closed for five years at the time
