Reviewed July 4, 2014

Unparalleled customer service, security, location, amenities. Don't miss the fantastic restaurant and do watch the sunset from the rooftop bar. The pool is fantastic and the snorkeling from their own beach is excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms that are ocean view are quieter but we find the Cruz Bay side fine.

We spent 5 days at Gallows Point in late May. It was amazing. The location is perfect with an easy walk to town. We did not need a car, but did rent dinghy's one day and a boat with a captain another day. The boat day we went to Foxy's, Foxy's Taboo and Soggy Dollar bars. What a fun day. Thank you Captain Mike! The restaurant is very good and the bar has beautiful views. Our room/apartment had such a beautiful view. I would definitely stay on the first floor and get a room with a view across the bay looking at St. Thomas. The evening view was so pretty. Our son had a second floor room and it was not laid out as well and was not as easy to keep cool. The grounds are beautiful, but the bugs do come out at sunset. The pool are is very nice and the swim platform in the snorkeling area was a fun surprise.

Room Tip: Choose a 1st floor, bay view looking across to St. Thomas. We were in 8C. Great view.

As first timers to the Virgin Islands, my family did not know what to expect at St. John. It was as fantastic as every great review TA has to offer... and 3 days at Gallows Point could not have been better. Exceptional attention of a very kind staff was only the only thing rated higher than the resort environment and landscape itself. The location was close enough to walk into town, yet far enough way to not feel crowded by the abundance of night life. A great stay and a perfect introduction to all the paradise-like areas that St. John holds.

I have been going to St. John since 1980. I find the island superb and the beaches and life style
sublime. Initially we were renting villas and jeeps. Recently this has proved a bit arduous, so we sought a alternative way to enjoy the St. John that we so relish. Our perfect answer was Gallows Point Resort. The location is marvelous: a snorkeling beach within an easy walk to town. The surroundings are lush, well maintained, and with a low-key ambiance that suits our style. The service is outstanding without being overbearing. From our two condos (so far), the water views were spectacular. A typical morning would start with a snorkeling swim and then a dip in the pool, before going up to the onsite convenience store for a capuccino and either a breakfast sandwich or goodie. The relaxed atmosphere and marvelous amenities make Gallows Point Resort a must for us. We have already booked a longer stay for 2015.

Room Tip: Condos in buildings 1-7 are quieter

We've been staying at Gallows Point during our visits to St. John for the past 20 years. We love the close walk to town, the views of St. Thomas, the nice snorkeling off the beach, and the friendly staff. I can't imagine we would ever stay anywhere else.

Love Gallow's Point and St. John's. Can't wait to go back! The room was perfect. The view was amazing! Perfect weather. We rented a jeep & went to the beaches! The landscape & flowers were beautiful. The pool was great. We BBQ'ed a couple nights. Enjoyed the drinks from the bar (pool side).

Thank for posting a review of our property. It is always exciting to read about our guest's experiences. For anyone reading this review, we want to clarify that we do not have a bar by the pool, but you are permitted to bring drinks down to the pool (as long as they aren't in glass of course). There is a bar in the restaurant on property. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Like many people, we really enjoyed many excellent qualities of this resort: the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the room, the location of the resort... however, there is one thing I have to point out: the noise we heard almost every night when we tried to sleep. The noise was from a bar across the bay, and it would invade our room way into late night.

Fortunately my husband and I brought ear-plugs, so we put them in our ears when we were trying to go to sleep (sometime I could still hear the music with the ear-plugs in!), but the ear-plugs were too big for my 8 year old son, so he couldn't use them. When questioning the front desk about the noise, the lady informed me there was nothing she could do for me.

So we had to listen to the noisy bar every night when we stayed there.

Room Tip: Maybe you shouldn't book the Bay view room if you need to go to bed early, or have young kids.
