I stayed in a 3 bedroom pool villa. We’ve owned a 3 bedroom pool Villa here since 2000 and love the resort, have been there 10 times. This was our first time back after the hurricane. We were expecting a fresher update from the post hurricane renovations. The furnishing and decor were tired and dated. I considered making this a 3 star review but the property is still beautiful and the outdoor common areas are well maintained. This is great unit since it has a large private patio with built in grill and private plunge pool with ample space for two large floaters snd children to frolic.

Some reviewers complained about service, etc but we had good service. The resort is very well maintained and I believe it must have updated since the 2017 hurricanes because everything seemed pretty new especially our room. The beach is nice and sandy but seemed man made. Not a lot marine life for snorkeling, but we did see a turtle swim by. While the immaculate grounds were nice, the workout facility was excellent. The food was just ok.

St. John is a beautiful island- there is no question about it. The resort is pretty, but you had to get up at 7:00 a.m. to reserve a beach chair. There is definitely more room at the beach to accommodate additional chairs, but for some reason they aren't there. The pool bar and restaurant is convenient. It would be great if they had a fine dining restaurant at the hotel as well. Our three bedroom villa reeked of stale cigarette smoke. When we got home and opened our suitcases, the smell permeated through the room. It was disgusting. I had to rewash everything, spray my suitcases with Lysol and put them outside to detox. I'm not going to complain like everyone else about the lack of house cleaning. I don't want anyone coming into my room during covid to clean anyway. We had a fabulous vacation, but our room was just plain disgusting. We are non smokers and want to smell clean air. Do yourself a favor and visit Maho Bay Beach. We swam with sea turtles and it was a gorgeous beach. We rented a car and did excursions- this was awesome.

Last Xmas we booked several Caribbean properties for this Xmas, thinking we would have plenty of time for Covid to die down & decide which island to visit. We booked the Westin “just in case” leaving the US was too difficult. As the months went on we cancelled all the other properties & were just left with the Westin. The reviews were less than stellar & I was very nervous about what to expect. Although the Westin is not without issues we had a wonderful week. The good - the property is beautiful and very clean, the staff were friendly & kind, the villa was updated, large and well kept, location is great. We did not find rude service or awful conditions as we had read in prior reviews. The complete lack of housekeeping is an issue. They claim it is due to Covid- however we have stayed in numerous hotels during Covid & never have we had a complete lack of housekeeping. Every time you wanted new towels you needed to call them, sometimes twice. They would tell us to leave the old towels outside the room. Sometimes the towels sat for a full day. You were responsible for taking out your own garbage but there was no place to put it. Therefore, we saw some people just put it outside their doors & animals got to it. These are just not things you want to deal with on a vacation. Looking at someone else’s garbage, especially when I am spending an abundance of $, is not my idea of relaxing. A week is a long time to go in a hotel without any type of service. The breakfast buffet is pathetic. They have a beautiful outdoor patio & they had 3 tables set up there. Every day we were told those tables were reserved- yet no one ever sat at them. There was easily room for 3x the amount of tables outside. The inside of the buffet was so cold that it was painful to sit in there. Everyone who walked in asked to sit outside but no one ever could. The windows were fogged up from the extreme temperature difference from the outside. The buffet itself was worse than any I have seen. At the beginning of Xmas week they had a decent selection of fun, sugary, kid cereals. By mid week they were down to just Frosted Flakes and by the end of the week, the only cereal choice was Special K. The only fruit offered were apples and some unripe bananas, the “assorted pastries” were sad looking at best, until one day the “assorted pastries” were just prepackaged muffins that looked like they were from 7-11. Unfortunately the only other breakfast choice is their “deli” where there were stale bagels available. For lunch & dinner there is one restaurant open by the pool. We ate lunch there a few times and it was adequate but a resort of this size needs more options. Although the restaurant/bar is right on the beach, no one came around on the beach to take orders. They did occasionally take orders at the pool. There is clearly a large staffing issue at the Westin & until they rectify this situation, it will be hard for their ratings to improve. When we first arrived they were very eager to try & get us to listen to a timeshare presentation, they kept calling, gave us food vouchers and a bottle of wine but after a few days they either forgot or got too busy & they left us alone. The beach at the Westin is not nearly as beautiful as the other beaches on St John, but it is still lovely. Most days we would go to other beaches early & come back to the Westin beach later in the day. The Westin finds itself in a unique position of being one of the only full service, luxury hotels on St. John. This may make them feel that they don’t need to offer people more? I’m not sure, but it would not take much to make this an unforgettable place. All of that being said, you won’t be disappointed here but you will probably be asking yourself “why aren’t they doing just a little bit more?”

Overall great hotel. Fantastic service. Wonderful beach, pool, and hot tub. Came here for a family trip. Had 2 different types of rooms—a 2BR Townhome, and. 2 BR Villa. Townhome was better and more spacious. 2 downfalls- 1. Only 1 restaurant. At a property this large, there should be at least 3. 2. The private ferry and shuttle to the airport is a joke. And expensive. And a big cluster. None of the passengers knew what was going on. No instructions from the crew. And it took forever. Much better off time wise and $$wise to just get a $5 taxi to Cruz Bay & take the shuttle from there. I paid $490 for a party of 7. I figure it would’ve been around $282 on our own. I paid the extra for convenience — and it wasn’t convenient.
