This was my first time to the Caribbean. It won't be my last, and I have Gallows to thank for that. Suite - Incredibly home like. The bed was super comfortable. Kitchen had granite, stainless, and a full size refrigerator. We stayed on the ground floor right on the ocean facing St Thomas - it was the most beautiful sunset... More

We were in Unit 2B. We stayed 5 nights. It was on the ocean side with great ocean views as advertised. The Unit was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was fabulous. The decor was "tropical average" and the amenities were hit and miss. E.g. the first few days there was no bar soap only liquid, which I... More

This was our third visit to Gallows and we still love it. We could not imagine staying anywhere else on the island. The only thing missing is a beach. Some of the best snorkeling on the island is right in front of your room, you are a very quick walk down the hill to town for restaurants and shopping, and... More

Gallows Point was awesome and without a doubt was better than we had expected. Room was beautiful and nicely furnished, of course the location was amazing. Anna at the front desk was very nice, helpful and very funny. What really stood out was how beautiful the grounds were and how close you are to everything, the location really is perfect.... More

Gallows has a reputation and all I can say is that it lived up or down to its perception. I would not stay here again; staff not friendly, room dirty and sandy, very loud hearing ur neighbors or kids from hot tub, ac worked great,the little gift shop is useless. PS I wouldn't stay at Westin or caneel. Rent a... More

After, traveling by plane, taxi, ferry, you would expect at least a pleasant welcome when finally arriving at your resort destination. Not, so at Gallows Point, not even a smile or hello. Our room was a little dirty, and way too hot to enjoy our balcony(we stayed in an upper ocean room) .In our room we could hear our neighbors... More

Gallows Point Resort is by far the best place to stay on the island and much better than Caneel Bay Resort. It is walkable from Mongoose Junction, a small shopping center, the ferry dock, and center of town. Also Ocean 362 is just above the gallows point lobby. They serve island specials such as Mahi Mahi and Duck Confit. The... More

Just returned from a week at Gallows Point Resort. We went to Gallows Point based on reviews. While we were not unhappy with GP, we had expected so much more. We had booked a unit on the ocean side (the quiet side). This was not quiet since the noise from the restaurant and bar on the premises was sometimes very... More

We LOVE this place! Great service, great location, great rooms, perfect view, beautiful grounds...I could go on and on. You can snorkel right from the property, walk to every restaurant and shop and then stumble home.

This is a place for COUPLES to get away. Very quiet and stress free. We stayed in 11A which is on the harbor. The noise is really not that bad as some might say. The staff was friendly and helpful. Gallows is a short walking distance from where all the restaurants and shops are. Recommend renting a car for days... More
