I think I also remember hearing that and its too bad, we did stop in the one in San Juan on the walk up to El Morro. It was a nice spot to drop off all our carry-on stuff and pick up on the way back, get a cool drink, use the rest rooms, etc.
David, we were in St Thomas in november and the crown and anchor club is no longer open there. it was open in San Juan, we asked why it closed and they told us there wasn't enough interest in it to warrent keeping it open. call them and express your desires.
