“Paradise on Earth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Gallows Point Resort is perfection on every level. First of all, location, location, location. Gallows is literally, a lovely 5 minute walk to the quaint, small, enchanting, eclectic, island town of Cruz Bay & we took inexpensive taxi rides to several of the most beautiful beaches in the world, totally effortless! No car needed!! We stayed in Unit 8A, ocean view, lower level, which was nothing short of perfection. The Unit was beautifully decorated by the owners, who clearly love St. John, as a local artist's work adorned the living room & fabulous shower tiles. The Staff were as magical as St. John itself...from Davidson to Karla, Akhil, Anna, Nadej, Smith...& all the other names I can't remember. The small but mighty gift & gourmet store on the premises was just awesome! Whatever your needs were, from great coffee to booking a phenomenal excursion, they will made it happen with a smile! We did the Snuba Dive & the Cloud 9 Sail to the British Virgin Islands, both were simply magnificent experiences. The property grounds are tropically, breathtakingly stunning, as well as, the pool & jacuzzi location hanging over the Caribbean. Gallows Point is as close to flawless as you can get & St. John is truly the most beautiful place with the most genuinely kind & honest people of anywhere I have ever stayed in the world!! Bravo Gallows, we will return!!! Thank You.

Gallows Point Resort offers one bedroom villas that are perfect for family vacationers. Every aspect of this resort was great. Reservations were made by a knowledgeable person who helped us book two adjacent villas for our family of six. Each Villa had a bedroom, kitchen, and living room/dining room and two bathrooms. We stayed in 6C and 6D. These units are centrally located with a beautiful view. We took other travelers' advice and shopped at Save U More on St Thomas and stocked our kitchen. We ate in at least one meal a day. Restaurants on St. Johns are pretty pricey so having the kitchen was an asset. The pool and spa has a great view of the ocean and was clean and quiet. Housekeeping was great and left the room spotless every day. The location of the resort was the biggest appeal for us. We did not need to rent a car and were able to walk into Cruz Bay in five minutes. We were close to shopping, dining, ferry, and diving shop. This worked out well because driving and parking in St. Johns is a little more challenging than on the main land. The staff of the gift shop were helpful in planning day trips and told us how to find a cool hiking trail that takes you to Honeymoon Beach and Caneel Bay. There is no sand beach at Gallows Point but we found enough beach time elsewhere.

Room Tip: Upper level villas are duplex and add a half bathroom. I think Unit 15 is right by the cemetery whi...

Wonderful location. My second trip to this wonderful island and staying at Gallows Point was the best choice. Close walk to town if you decide not to rent a car which we didn't. The snorkeling at the resort was really good. The unit we stayed in was beautiful 14B. It is right next to the cemetery but that didn't bother us at all. It was a lower floor unit with a great view of the harbor. Some nights we could hear music from town but it didn't disrupt sleep. The gift shop employees were very helpful with helping us to plan our activities. Wonderful vacation...can't wait for a return visit!!!

This was our first trip to St. John and Gallows Point. The island and the resort were just perfect! The town of Cruz Bay, with many shops and restaurants (one of my favorite restaurants was Cruz Bay Landing, great breakfast and coffee!) is a very short walk from the resort. The beach (Hawks Nest) was a quick 7 minute drive. We drove from the resort to Coral Bay (about 8 miles, lots of curves in the road so it will take some time) and had lunch at Miss Lucy’s.

We found the entire staff at Gallows Point to be friendly, helpful and trustworthy! The grounds were very well maintained with beautiful, mature, tropical landscaping. The resort offered, snorkeling, a swimming pool, hot tub, outdoor grilling area and plenty of areas to lounge around. Our room/apt. had an awesome view of Cruz Bay. It was so relaxing to sit on our deck, listening to the huge Coconut Palms rustling in the wind and watching the sailboats going back and forth. The room/apt. was clean, nicely equipped and updated/remodeled. We didn’t need anything, the room/apt. had it all!

The staff at the gift shop/store were just awesome!! Very friendly and easy to talk to! They can arrange many activities for a tourist and offer recommendations for sightseeing. A+

Room Tip: Rooms closer to #1 are quieter with ocean views. Rooms closer to #11 are louder (boat horns in the b...

What a spectacular resort! Incredibly close to town (5 minute walk to most restaurants in Cruz Bay). The most safe and secure we have ever felt traveling. Simple shopping, close grocery options, plenty of restaurant choices and beautiful grounds. This place was everything we had hoped for. Please pay attention, they absolutely will not let kids stay under the age of 6. It says this multiple times on the web site and on our confirmation...yet we still saw a family show up with two little ones and get belligerent about the policy. My wife and I enjoyed the peace.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms looked out towards Saint Thomas, but were very quiet. The music from some bars...

We returned to Gallows Point Resort in July 2014. This is our second visit and it did not disappoint. We love Gallows for it's location close to all the resturants and shops in Cruz Bay. It's an easy walk down to all the great shops which is great after happy hour and a night out. We stayed in an Ocean Lower Condo as we like the views and also being able to sit out on our patio with all the doors and windows opened. We also like having the kichen to cook breakfast and make our lunches to take out to the beached with us. The condo was nicely updated and had a great large bathroom. The condo and areas were very quiet and we never had an issue with noise. The staff was more than helpful and always very friendly. The WiFi would work sometimes but this was not a big deal. We also used the Gallows gift shop to rent fins for snorkeling and they helped us find a place to paddle board on the island. We will be back for sure and I highly reccomend Gallows.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great! We were in an Ocean Lower that was further from the pool and liked hoe qui...

Gallows Point Resort has it all - gorgeous views from all units, beautiful grounds, and an ideal location just a few minutes walking distance from all of the restaurants and shops in Cruz Bay. Location is very important on St. John, EVEN if you have a jeep for the week, as we did. The jeep is great for going to a different beach every day, but it would not be so great to have to find a parking space in Cruz Bay, where ALL of the restaurants and shops are. No need to deal with that if you stay at Gallows Point - just leave your jeep at the resort and walk to town!
We stayed in an Upper Harbor View unit, and we adored the view of all the sailboats bobbing in the harbor. Some reviewers have mentioned that they could hear noise coming from town, but we did not find this to be an issue AT ALL. If you decide to book a Harbor View unit as we did, you will still be able to enjoy the view from the ocean side whenever you are lounging on the deck or swimming in the pool.
All of the folks working at Gallows Point were friendly, and Anna and Davidson were especially helpful whenever we had questions or needed something. I highly recommend this resort to anyone vacationing in St. John.
