“An excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

I've stayed at this property many times in the past 3 years. The location, staff, and accommodations are second to none on the island. I know the manager and desk staff and they have always taken good care of us. They run a first class resort. I highly recommend the property.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of St. Thomas. The bayside rooms are less expensive but can be very nois...

Gallows Point is a home away from home. The property is beautiful, the staff friendly and the views incredible! Felt very safe on this property and would definately stay here again. Love that this property is located within walking distance to everything!

Room Tip: Loved the upper unit 6C! Newly remodeled and very clean and comfortable.

We have been enjoying yearly vacations at Gallows Point for well over a decade now. The Resort is conveniently located within walking distance of Cruz Bay. Condos are comfortable and clean. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Ocean and harbor views are spectacular. Much of the island is a national park and has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Cinnamon Bay is our favorite. Numerous restaurants to choose from and plenty of shopping. There is something for everyone. Already planning a family reunion for next year.

Room Tip: Even though harbor side rooms are not as quiet as those on the ocean side due to the ferries and loc...

Depending on what you are looking for, Gallows Point may be perfect for you. Not cheap, but large, well-maintained condos set among beautifully landscaped grounds with fantastic views and a short walk from restaurants and shopping. Helpful, friendly staff: on-site shop stocked with necessities and able to arrange for activities: attractive pool area perfect for reading and taking a dip.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, select ocean side upper level. We stayed in 2D, which was a very good locatio...

Every time we leave St. John, we start planning our next trip back. Staying at Gallows Point Resort always makes our stay special. The condo is spacious and clean with every amenity
needed. The view from the terrace is priceless and the convince of being able to walk to town can't be beat! We love to come back from a day at the beach to a relaxing time poolside. It's just perfect. It would be very hard to convince us to stay elsewhere on St. John. Can't wait to go back!

GPR is perfect in every way! Booked the Westin for a New Years getaway for my wife and I and once we arrived we were totally disappointed with the small dirty room they put us in. We stayed in Westin properties 197 nights in 2012. Staff and management could not rectify the situation. Began a search for an alternate property on the island but since it was New Years everything we ran across had no availability. Slept in our clothes the 1st night of our vacation in the tiny filthy Westin room. Tried one more google search in the morning and Gallows Point Resort showed up with availability. Once accomodations were secured at GPR we checked out of the Westin and began the most wonderful vacation my wife and I have ever experienced in our 33 years of marriage. Everything at GPR was PERFECT!!!!! Thanks to all at GPR!!!

Perfect in every way. We had an amazing view of the harbor, the condo was clean and comfortable. We hardly every heard our neighbors and felt like we were alone at the resort. The pool is small but never crowded. There is not a beach but you can snorkel from a dock on-site. The staff was very helpful whenever we asked for suggestions about dining, beaches and excursions. There is a market on site where you can buy food to cook and prepared foods. We walked to town most nights for dinner, but had breakfast and lunch at the condo. There are grills and washer/dryers on site as well. Daily maid service, beach towels, coolers and beach chairs were all provided. The only thing we would have liked was a gym, either on-site or close by. My husband went to the Westin several times to work out which was somewhat inconvenient.

Room Tip: Harbor view rooms could hear the boats coming in, but it didn't bother us. Condo's close to...
