Marriott St. Thomas - close to dive shops / things to do?

I am interested in staying at the Marriott, but am wondering if we will need to have a car / use a taxi to get anywhere? I was also looking at Gallows Point in St. John's, and like that it is closer to town, but it is more difficult to reach. Any ideas? I am planning week two of my honeymoon and don't know where to go! Thanks.

You can make it without a car, but we find it annoying and more expensive to use taxi's. The Marriott is fairly close to town but 20-30 min. from the other beaches. If you plan to spend most of your time at the hotel, maybe you could do fine without a car.

Gallow's Point is in a great location and everyone that stays there has good things to say. Again, I would rent a car for at least a few days because there is so much to see on this beautiful island. You will be able to walk to town.
