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.

Lovely location

lThis is better described as a group of condos, not a hotel or a resort. Great location just outside Cruz Bay. Views, access to small beach, nice pool and decks. Lots of stairs up to units, and lots of steep paths--not good for anyone with mobility issues.Staff is outstandingly helpful and kind. No common indoor areas. Minimal food service--pricey attached restaurant serves dinner; gift shop has takeout breakfast items, sandwiches & drinks, and provides concierge services, arranges bookings, rentals, etc.

Convenient Location

Comfortable hotel and convenient location to be able to walk to Cruz Bay restaurants. Also walking distance from the ferry dock. We didn't use the kitchen to cook, but it's pretty spacious and well-equipped. Still rented a car to visit other beaches, but overall it was a nice place to stay.

great location

We stayed here on our honeymoon and it was fantastically beautiful, close to all restaurants and shopping it only took about 10-15 minutes to walk anywhere we never took a taxi or rented a jeep. The staff is extremely friendly especially the staff at the on-site gift shop and they set up all kinds of activities for us with no extra charge. We went during the end of the peak season so it was quiet and we even had the hot tub to ourselves. We had a room with the harbour view and it was great yes it does get loud at night around 10pm but we are able to sleep through noise so it wasn't a problem for us. We were there for a week and didn't want to leave, we will return to st. John and will only stay at gallows point resort

Paradise in St. John

Expensive, but well worth it. Our room overlooked the water with views of the harbor and the open sea. Beautifully manicured grounds with everything well taken care of in our unit. The staff was very accommodating. Any minor concerns were corrected immediately.

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!

Best shrimp: Cruz Bay Landing (it's on the appetizer list) Local fare: Sogo - West Indian food (best bang for your buck and it's a little bit of the local culture) Kekoa: sunset cruise (staff is super friendly and chill, awesome snorkeling and fun atmosphere)

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
