We stayed there for 2 nights last week, using Starpoints. Even though we used points, our stay was not "free". They have a $40/night resort fee, which is certainly the highest I've ever seen anywhere. This apparently includes free (sloooooow) internet, parking non-motorized water sports, tennis court, fitness center, shuttle, pool, etc. Even Platinum status didn't get this fee waived (we didn't use anything other than internet and parking), but it did get us free continental breakfast each day (which is normally $20/person for pastries and coffee). So it was quite expensive, but maybe worth it if you're there long enough to really use all of the facilities and services.
Our poolside king room was very nice. It was quiet, dry, and nicely climate controlled, with good facilities and of course an amazing bed. However, it really could have been a Westin anywhere - the sand, parrots, and I think the palm trees, were even imported from Puerto Rico. They have a car rental facility on site, which is convenient, since visitors definitely should explore the safe island. The staff was friendly, although quite stiff and formal, with the exception of our porters, who were extremely chatty. Do watch out for the golf carts at all times - they drive fast and without much regard for guests walking down the paths.
So overall this is a very nice (and expensive) hotel, with great services and facilities, but not much St John personality.
