We had perfect weather in mid-October. This private complex is clean, beautiful, perfectly located on the outer point of Cruz Bay. Best on the island. We had a lower unit with an ocean view towards St Thomas, snorkeling & pool with hottub just a few feet away, and the staff was fantastic! Our condo had just been renovated w/new appliances, granite countertops, glass-front cherry cabinets. Coffee maker, microwave, full-size fridge, disposal, etc. We even had an in-room safe, and the BIGGEST shower I've ever seen with plenty of room for our snorkel gear. Since I was traveling with my sister & brother-in-law, I slept on the hidabed and it was very comfortable as well. I fell sound asleep to the crashing waves each night. The grounds are lush and I felt very secure. Restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. was all within walking distance! I can't wait to bring my husband next year!

Room Tip: Rooms near the restaurant are noisier. Lower units seem to stay cooler.

My wife and I have just returned from Gallows Point. Celebrating our 20th anniversary last week. This is a Fantastic property . Best location on the island, with a friendly staff and lush grounds. Stay on the ocean side to avoid ferry noises. Shannon and David who run the gift shop and market on property are very nice. And Kristin the conceierge was great at helping plan our days. Definitely rent a car. Touring the island is really fun. You see so much more, and can experience the quieter side of the island if you want. Zozo's restaurant has some of the best food on the island. And try sitting at the bar. You'll experience the best views of St Thomas. This was our second trip to Gallows. And we will be back!

Room Tip: I recommend the ocean view upper level.

This is our second trip to St John and Gallows point. And we are not back only because of St John, but also because of Gallows. It is like our home away from home. Everything is the way you want it to be without being uptight. The staff is like family, the unit is like home. Clean, exciting and perfectly located near the center, just walking distance, but still on the outside so you dont feel bothered.
I could not see my self going to St John and stay anywhere else. (just make sure you dont step in Iguana poop :)

Room Tip: Unit 10B has the perfect location with both the view of the ocean and the city harbor.

Truly a lovely place to vacation...the pool and grounds are cleaned every morning, daily maid service, clean and comfortable units. Just back from our August 11-18 stay and planning on returning next year. While August was hot, the sea breezes still kept us cool - although we did amp up the air at night to sleep. We didn't rent a car - walked to Cruz Bay and to Dolphin Market. Cabs were quite easy to get to go to the beaches. The snorkeling was better at Gallows Point! Less people, better coral and bigger fish! Saw a few eel and an octopus. Watch out for the gulls on Cinnamon Bay - they're aggressive if they see you eating and will steal right out of your hands.

Room Tip: Would highly recommend ocean side as the bay side would have the hourly ferry noise and night life f...

So given that I'm quite critical of places where I stay, and that my wife and I left Gallows Point satisfied, GP deserves a high mark. We give it 4.5 stars.

The Good:
- nice, spacious rooms with a living room, especially if you're willing to splurge and stay at one of the upper rooms where the view is just incredible
- easy access to the sea, however no real beach, and lots of corals and sharp stones, so make sure you bring swimming shoes (or whatever they're called)
- Zozo's, restaurant located on the premises is a solid place, went there four times and each time walked away loving the place. One of the best restaurants we've dined in a while..
-Location is really close to the town, no need to rent a car or anything. Safe area.

The Bad:
- So being a condo facility, there is no ability to order food. You can shop at a supermarket or eat at nearby restaurants, but sometimes you just way to stay in and eat either in your room, or in the hotel restaurant. Zozo's, the only restaurant on hotel premises, is only open at night, and you better have your reservation. To their defense, there is a convenience store that sells chips, milk, etc., but still not a real cafe/restaurant..
- No tennis courts, or any amenities on the territory (other than a pool), so you better be ready to leave the hotel in search of any entertainment.
- No sandy beach near by, so either you're a snorkeling lover, in which case GP offers a nice place to snorkel (nothing like snorkeling in the red sea, but not bad), or be ready to get on a bus/taxi each day in search of a sandy beach (we did both and it worked out ok).

Tip: If you do go to St. John, regardless where you stay, make sure to book a boat with a captain for half-day and go around the island, it's the coolest experience we've had while we stayed there.

Verdict: Nice rooms, incredible view especially from top rooms, and if you don't mind lack of sandy beach or food service, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Top rooms offer an incredible view

Our second trip to St. John. It has been ten years and things were as we remembered it. The staff at Gallows were fantastic, friendly and helpful with all our needs. We were there the 1st. through the 10th. Hated to go home, but all good things must end. Did 3 excursions booked through them and had a great time, thanks for the help and recommendations. We did a lot of walking around as we enjoy oppurtunities to visit with the locals. Everyone with talked to were extremely friendly and helpful. We did follow what my mother always said, Greet them warmly and be polite before asking questions. Also road the VItran to Skinny legs, an adventure in it self. Meet Vince Danet who is running for the US Congress, visited for about ten minutes with him, he wanted to know why we were walking and it was to meet people like him. He did answer my question and gave us the directions we needed. Also the owner of Lime Inn was just as great and friendly as he was ten years ago. Hope to make it back sooner and know we will stay at Gallows again and meet some more of the great and friendly people of this great island paradise. We were in 2A this time

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

We just returned from a 8 days trip to St John. Gallows Point is a beautiful condo resort, the suite we stay (9A) has just been upgraded. And it has a four layers of view right in the front door, lavish landscape, pool, ocean and St. Thomas island view. It is stunning.

The beaches on St John are beautiful too, especially Trunk Bay, the water is turquoise crystal clear with powdering white sand, it has a under water trail that leads us to see many colorful fishes, sea turtle and sting ray.

The only part that disappointed us was the local people, many of them are very rude to tourists. We used Taxi, so we met some of the rude drivers too. You should especially avoid Kenneth, he will overcharge you and is downright rude. (we had to tell the front desk that we don't want Kenneth as the driver when they call Taxi for us). We took a one day tour to Tortola, the BVI, people there are very warm and nice.

Room Tip: 9A is great. All 1- 10 suite has ocean view. Should avoid suite 14 and 15, they are very close to t...
