Secluded resort on Cruz Bay walking distance to St. John restaurants
The Gallows Point Resort recently completed a renovation that highlights the property's  spectacular setting. The resort, set on five acres of a lushly landscape peninsula, is an adventure wonderland. Enjoy exceptional snorkeling just steps away from the resort patio. While sipping a signature tropical at the manager's reception, guests take in panoramic views of many other Virgin Islands from this oceanfront resort.
Highlights
  • Private coral beach for snorkeling
  • Fully-equipped kitchens
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi in public areas
  • Oceanfront pool and Jacuzzi
Rooms
The suites at the Gallows Point Resort are individually decorated with a tropical flair, and many feature expansive views of other Virgin Islands. In each fully-furnished kitchen, guests stay in for as many, or as few, meals as they wish. The rooms have an airy wide-open feel, thanks to tall ceilings and ample windows. Each suite has a king bed and queen sofa sleeper. Standard amenities, including daily maid service, are included.
Features
Thanks to its location on a peninsula, the Gallows Point Resort feels like it is at end of the world, truly a private getaway. Yet, it is really just a short walk to more than a dozen of Cruz Bay’s best restaurants. Guests also opt to stay on the property for dinner at Zozo’s, one of St. John’s most popular fine dining spots. Just steps from the resort is some of the best snorkeling on the island, and Gallows Point Resort also is close to some of the islands most beloved beaches.

Mini Honeymoon in St. John at Gallows Resort

My husband and I were looking for a good deal that was located close to Cruz Bay. The Gallows Point Resort (GPR) was a 5 minute walk from "downtown" Cruz Bay which was very convenient and offers a complimentary shuttle from the ferry. There is a convenient store located on the property which helps you take care of virtually everything: food, groceries, gifts, activities, etc. The Room: It was like it's own little 1-BR apartment. Huge shower, lots of towels, king size bed, ceiling fans in all rooms, full size kitchen and large sitting area. Central air was nice on the hot days and the wall to wall doors on the porch for the cooler nights. My husband and I got some bacon and eggs from the convenient store and made ourselves breakfast after the first morning. it was much more economical given how expensive the food can be on St. John. Resort Grounds: Huge pool but we never used it given the clear blue ocean is just steps away! Plenty of beach chairs and hammocks to lounge in. There is also a hot tub but again, why use it? The floating dock was pretty cool, too. Housekeeping came by each day to freshen our room. They even put the dishes away for us! There are laundry facilities on site, if you need to use them. Every one says hello and offers a smile as you walk past. Anna at the front desk was a huge help and just so very friendly! The hotel bar/restaurant is pretty expensive so we only had one so-so drink there and didn't go back. Given the cheaper options in Cruz Bay, we didn't go back. My husband and I would definitely go back and will bring some frozen steaks with us next time as they provide facilities to grill!

Wonderful Week in Saint John

Great place to stay on Saint John. Beautiful grounds, gorgeous views. A very short walk to restaurants and shopping. You will not need to rent a car unless you want to explore the island. Taxis are in abundance as well. This is not a hotel, but the on-property shop had everything we needed. The staff there was extremely helpful!! We stayed during "hurricane season" and the hotel was quiet. We never heard another guest. GREAT PLACE. You will NOT be disappointed.

Gallows Point

This is a fantastic place with an awesome view. Condo set up perfectly for a romantic get away. Definitely an adult location over a family spot. Staff was very friendly. Zozo's restaurant was very good but was pricey.

Rent a car on St Thomas and ferry it over to St John. You will definitely want a vehicle.

Best place to stay in Cruz Bay

The location is amazing and the views from the resort are incredible, especially at sunset. You are a short walk from downtown Cruz Bay which is where most bars and restaurants are located on the island. Zozo's restaurant is one of the best on the island and right on sight. The on sight gift shop (externally managed by great people but synced with the hotel) has everything you need at reasonable prices and can help with booking day trips as well. The staff was great and very helpful, even double checking plans to catch ferry and flight when you leave to make sure your timing will work. We stayed in an upper room which I would say is worth the extra money. Good sized rooms overall and very clean and comfortable. We won't consider staying anywhere else on future trips!

Romantic Getaway

We had an incredible time at Gallows Point. The Resort is located just close enough to the nightlife, yet faraway enough for peace and serenity. We snorkeled right off the reef of the hotel, believe it or not the best snorkeling on the whole island. Zozo's restaurant is on the Gallows Point property, added bonus 5 star restaurant

Gallows Paradise

My wife and I enjoyed a stay at Gallows Point to celebrate our Anniversary. Gallows far exceeded our expectations. Each room has a private balcony or terrace with either ocean views looking back to St. Thomas or harbor views of Cruz Bay. The views off our private balcony were incredible! The staff was comfortable and the resort was so quiet even though they were booked full. We felt as if we had the place all to ourselves. Another large benefit is the ability to walk to downtown. The heart of Cruz Bay is only a couple minute walk away making it great to be able to walk to dinner or other events. We hope to be able to return to Gallows Point in the near future

Very nice experience

The room was very spacious, the hotel well located, although at night was noisy due to being so close to Cruz bay where most bars and restaurants were located. But overall very nice place, we had a great time.

Relaxing vacation

Beautiful condos, great staff very eager to please and make your stay enjoyable. Close to town to walk to restaurants, shops and ferry. Staff picks you up at ferry and takes you back when time to leave. Only problem was noise from beach band on Saturday nights until 2AM with all doors & windows closed! noise ordinance but not enforced (for #14 & 13 units facing harbor)

Spring Break

Had a very nice time with my daughter. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They assisted us when we were having difficulties with getting a vehicle from the rental agents. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bathroom and kitchen have been updated along the central air system. The bedroom and living room are a little dated but cozy. There is not much of a beach area and the pool is quite small. More of a boutique hotel than resortish. Very quiet and lots of security to insure your safety. Easy walk to Cruz bay for dinner and shopping. We would go back again. : )
