This is a nice property with a beautiful beach. It was fairly costy. Unfortunately, our experience was poor. Indifferent staff, dirty poolside restrooms and inappropriate music (F Bombs) played at the beach where families pick up water toys. The property offers "Free" sailboat use so long as the user pays to take their sailing course. We did that. Unfortunately, two days later, not a single boat was operational. The attendant told us (Without looking up from his cell phone or any apology ) that no boats would be available that week. Unacceptable. Lastly, the resort said that due to Covid protocol, they would not clean rooms. This included refusing to gather trash from units (They did tell us where we could find a dumpster ). This resulted in occupants leaving trash at the walkway outside of the units which brought in local wild chickens to dig through and spread trash around the property. I expressed my concerns to Marriott in an email. I got a response saying they would get back to me in three days. Have not heard a peep.Truly a letdown....

Hi Rob, thank you for your review of your recent stay at Westin St. John Resort Villas. We are saddened to learn about and apologize for your experience at our resort. While the beach is a public space, we do expect each party to be respectful of those around them. We are not happy to hear about the discard piles left in the hallways during your stay, while housekeeping is not conducting daily cleaning should pick up trash when seen around the resort. We apologize you have not heard back from our Marriott International Hotel partners. If you still wish to discuss your stay you may do so by calling Customer Advocacy at 1-800-860-9384 or via email at Customer.Advocacy@vacationclub.com.

Ok so you are probably doing right now like I did, you are skimming through all these recent reviews to find out if this place is worth it or not. I was worried reading some of them as well but I gotta say, as worried as I was about what kind of experience we would have here, it ended up being pretty nice and a lot better than I had anticipated. First of all the property is HUGE and the grounds are absolutely STUNNING. HUGE props to ALL the gardeners for keeping this place looking super clean outside and gorgeous with local flora. We had a 3 bedroom balcony unit that was supposed to have a pool but that’s another story and has nothing to do with the staff or property. The check in staff were ALL super nice and welcoming, Q was an absolute delight to meet and helped get us checked in ASAP. We never had problems getting a golf cart, maybe once or twice they took a while but it was SO busy (all units were booked) so a little patience never hurt anyone and there was always a way to call and get someone. We walked a couple of times to get where we wanted, we figured it wouldn’t hurt as we were guzzling 10 million calories a day in scrumptious St. John food and cocktails. The villa was nicely appointed and clean and VERY quiet. We never heard a peep from anyone else around us. Kitchens are stocked well with items (dishes, cups, wine openers, etc.) and there are also SEVERAL grills around the property for you to use wherever you are staying. Food was not too shabby either but then again you are getting a review from someone that doesn’t really get excited about hotel food. Breakfast was ok, not a ton of options but enough and it was always consistent and good. Not amazing but good. In my opinion, the omelette and breakfast bowls were the most bang for your buck. I also have to say that the potstickers and steak tacos were VERY decent. Service is slow yes, but honestly not any slower than what I have experienced at other resorts like this and plus, you are on island time, so where you gotta go so fast? Whitney waited on us several times and she was just so sweet and took care of us every day she was there. The other ladies and Fitzroy (jolly fellow) tending the pool and only restaurant (Snorkels) were very pleasant and trying their best to keep up and if I may say so they did a great job seeing how busy it was. Yes, there were some staff that weren’t interactive at all or outgoing but they weren’t rude or mean. I do wish there was more open like the Spa and daily cleaning service but everything we needed was there. Beach was nice, clean and well appointed....while most chairs were occupied by 1030/11 there were plenty of them. Beach is calm and great for little ones and they have these complimentary floating devices that are quite nice. Their little grocery shop is open and a great place for sandwiches and so is the gift shop (lovely little place) with a super sweet manager. I do think they could step it up a couple of notches to match other Westin properties but honestly it was a lovely stay. So relax, look forward to your trip and enjoy!

St. John is an AMAZING as an island. But this resort is a bit run down. And that has nothing to do with covid. To someone reading this, if you want to stick with this price point and have an amazing and much better trip, maybe look to another Caribbean island. This is NOT a luxury hotel, but charges luxury prices. Hire a few more cocktail servers, and ones who are not grumpy. Or hell, hire another grumpy one or two and offer cocktail and food service while sitting on your old lounge chairs on the beach. I can’t be the only one who wants to escape life while on a beach vacation by getting the occasional drink served to me, especially at a $500 to $700 a night hotel. Housekeeping= nicest people I interacted with. Pleasant and a great attitude. I could just tell they were smiling behind the masks. A note to the property General manager... your housekeeping manager must be doing something right, your food/beverage manager and front desk manager= not so much. Beach bar, lobby, deli and other employees felt like I was an inconvenience to them. Well that just sucks day in and day out on a week vacation. Also, hire a few more golf cart drivers. That hill is annoying. That poor attitude starts with Managment, they have to lead better. Holes in lounge chairs on the beach, 3 or 4 different types of OLD beach old towels (I know this is a petty, but y’all are charging so much, you should have some PRIDE in the product you’re selling) and old beaten up pool floats at the small pool up the hill near villas 3200 buildings. You think a ritz, a st Regis, a W, or a JW would have these poor standards? Hell, a four points or courtyard keeps up on these little things better then your resort does. And all these small petty things sets a tone and an impression. This review is coming from a experienced traveler, currently titanium with Bonvoy and over 500 nights stayed with Marriott in total. And my 3rd time at this resort, last time was over 10 years ago. This time I was in room 3223. (Ac worked good but every time the compressor kicked on AND off it sounded like a small dog barking or tires screeching. this has nothing to do with my review, just probably a quick fix for the Maintance crew if someone at westin reads this and just wanted to give ya a heads up)

The Westin St John is okayyyy. Great location and St John is wonderful, of course. We stayed in a one bedroom unit (3425) at the top of the hill. The hill is an understatement. It’s way off the beaten trail and you have to commit to a 20 minute walk up a VERY steep hill or wait for a ride in the golf cart to get to the pool/beach. The interior of the unit smells like a wet wool sweater and desperately needs updating. The air conditioning did not work upon our arrival and the unit was 80 degrees. That said, staff were all friendly and once out of the unit and down the hill we had a great time.

This was our second trip to the Westin in St John and the USVI, and unfortunately this visit was a far less superior than our first. Our first visit was 5 stars all around, and I honestly could not find one negative thing to say about anything with our experience. It all started with booking the trip. We were told we had until February of 2022 to book our package only to be told we had until August of 2021. There was absolutely zero flexibility offered with the pandemic, and we only were aloud to book for 4 nights even though we paid for 5.
