The room we stayed in was the new addition of the Coral Vista. It of course was very modern and tastefully decorated. The problem is it was very small for a two bedroom timeshare unit at approximately 1000 square feet. If you are used to a hotel room then this would be great. They do have larger units you may want to look into. The beach and pool are very nice, however I don't understand why they don't have small tables in between the lounge chairs at the pool. The 10 million dollar renovation was good. You can take paddle boards and kayaks out as a guest as well as cool lounging rafts for the ocean or pool.
Th staff running the shuttles and the bell boys were especially nice. We really liked Julian, our island tour guide. He is a native of St John and has several good stories to tell about the island and its flora. The tour is $25 per person.
We did find the servers and the personnel at the bar were not very friendly and seemed to be on the defensive. You may want to get some people that will have fun and interact with the guests more.
If you spend time on your deck the golf carts can be quite noisy running back-and-forth in the evening. The management may want to limit the number of golf carts by around 10 o'clock at night to eliminate some of the noise. It appears to be more staff and management in the Golf carts in the evening than guests being transported back-and-forth to their units.
Overall the grounds on the property were beautiful and the units were very nice even though they are small.
