This was our first trip to St John and we traveled with several other couples to celebrate some birthdays and finally getting a break from all of our young kids after a year and a half of COVID. We rerouted to St John instead of our fav place, Bermuda, because of the more relaxed COVID procedures. Booking was super easy and accommodating. Once we arrived we were excited about the view, the pool and the location in proximity to the town. Maybe it was because we were there off season, but the islanders both at the hotel and in Cruz Bay time and time again at different places annoyed that we were there. They yelled at people without warning about wearing masks. The hotel rooms were “ok”. Certainly not the cleanest for a four star place. We found an unknown substance on the painting above our bed. We had to put the sign out for our room to actually be cleaned when we were initially told every other day (which was fine). One very important NOTE is that the pool and hot tub closes not a minute past 9 and you are no longer allowed to even hang out on the seating on a giant three tiered deck. There will be no compromise about the “Peaceful Pool Rules”. One final note that matters to me is that we were all eaten up by bugs throughout the week. One local told me that St John has no-see-ums, mosquitoes and sand fleas. Yikes.

We managed to get a room when we were in a bind with the villa we had rented. The unit had everything we needed for nights we chose to stay in and cook, and the bed was super comfortable. The living room was decorated with wicker furniture, pretty typical for Caribbean accommodations, but it’s not the most plush stuff for sitting. That’s okay though- no need for sitting there when you can chill out on the patio and watch the boats go by. We were also happy about being able to walk to Cruz Bay for dinner and shopping. Most importantly- the staff were friendly and helpful, and they maintain their facilities very well. Everything was clean and orderly. Grounds are beautiful, on land and sea- snorkeling off the point is a must! Only issue we found is not enough parking- but you can just park in their lot and leave the keys with the front desk. No big deal :)

The rooms at Gallows Point are pretty good. They have basic kitchen setup and average decor. We were there for a week (April 2021) and three of the nights during our stay, the neighbors came in after the bars had closed and acted like it was the first time they had ever partied. They cranked the tunes and then had to yell over the music to hear each other. Security was called each time and they basically stood outside the door while the drunk neighbors argued with them for 30 minutes. It was ridiculous. They did nothing to enforce their quiet hour rules which meant my family was awake for a couple hours each night from 11:30 to whenever they passed out. The management offered to move us to a new room on our last night there. REALLY, we are the ones you're going to inconvenience and move and not the drunk folks that are causing the trouble. Other than that, I love St John and Cruz Bay and can't wait to return. But we will def stay at a different location.

Gallow’s Point is a very nice property with spacious units and lots of storage and nice kitchen. Staff there is excellent. They were always very helpful and responsive. The location is very hard to be beat. We felt they could enhance the space with more amenities like a bar and food service at the pool. They have an EXCELLENT restaurant upstairs, so we don’t understand why they could not expand and offer more full service. We were very disappointed in the Concierge. After taking our order for groceries for our room, we felt it was almost non-existent. We requested three different times for help in securing reservations for two of our five nights and nothing. The owner of the boating company we hired for a day tour actually helped us with two restaurants. We actually went in and also called with no response. We would definitely come back but hope they take some of the input to heart to improve an already nice and beautiful resort.

Gallows Point Resort was great for our honeymoon. We did 9 days on St Thomas and 5 on St John, which was a pretty good balance (would probably swap in future). Gallows is located right near Cruz Bay, the biggest 'town' on St John. It is a 5 minute walk into town where you can find restaurants, dive shops, gift shops, ferries to St Thomas, etc. The resort itself was pleasant, though not overly indulgent. The views seem amazing from every room (we had a harbor view and loved the view). The resort is generally uncrowded, we never had trouble fitting in the pool or jacuzzi, no lines at reception, etc. The room was nice and big and comfy, we only wish there was a view from the bedroom instead of just the living area. We definitely appreciated the free laundry machines and beach chair rentals.
