What We LoveAfter one night on the signature Westin Heavenly Bed, you'll never want to leave the room. With so much on-site, you don't have to wander far.
Things to KnowWestin St. John Resort & Villas is one of two resorts located on the nature-preserve island of St. John and by far the most luxurious.
Westin St. John: Experience the Emerald IsleRecently nominated by Starwood's loyalty members as the Best Island Paradise and the Best Family Experience, the Westin St. John Resort & Villas is a refreshing 47-acre tropical hideaway on the palm-lined shores of Great Cruz Bay.
There's plenty of room for shore-dwellers to make a splash at the Westin St. John's quarter-acre, freshwater pool. Or, if you want some relaxation, head over to the spa instead where you can indulge in a massage or a mango body scrub.
Swap the spa for plush greens at the nearby Mahogany Run Golf Course. Just ask the concierge desk to help you arrange individual and tournament play, as well as transportation from the resort. You'll be glad you did. Not only is this course a top golf destination in the Caribbean with 18 challenging holes, but it also offers one of the best mountaintop views around. The course ends with the infamous "Devil's Triangle," which is made up of three difficult holes along the ocean. Good luck making par with such gorgeous views around you!
Meanwhile, you can let the kids party the day away at Westin Kids Club. Hourly, half-day, full-day or evening club sessions offer opportunities for parents to enjoy time away while kids get to play. There's also a Westin Teen Arcade Center for the older ones to meet some new friends and enjoy some time on their own. Pinball, air hockey and a photo booth are just a few of the activities they can enjoy there.
Besides that, the Westin St. John has plenty more options to suit everyone. Find your bliss with a morning yoga class, pump iron at the state-of-the-art fitness center or grab one of the tennis courts for a quick match. When you finally work up an appetite, you'll find a couple delicious dining options on-site, do you don't have to go very far for a great meal. After a day of fun activity, great food and family bonding, you'll be happy to retire to your comfortable room and get ready for the next day's adventure.

We had a beachfront room and it was absolutely breathtaking. The staff was wonderful and the free water front activities didn't fail to impress. The guys at the Watersports booth, Mike and Alex were so friendly. We took the "Jammin" on a snokel trip along with Pizza. You couldn't ask for a better excursion.
Beautifully Restored after hurricane Irma
We had stayed here before the hurricane. The same footprint is there but everything is now very up to date. Please remember that this is a timeshare place and not a high end hotel although the prices make it seem that way. We loved our time at the resort and will definitely return.
People who are considering going should know that this is a time share place, not a hotel per se. Guests expecting hotel-level service will be disappointed. The best one-word description for the level of service would be “indifferent.” There’s only one pool and one restaurant on site. The food at the restaurant is average at best.
Poor cancellation policy during Coronavirus pandemic
Cancellation policy not accommodating during Coronavirus pandemic. We are owners at this resort and really enjoyed previous stays. However, on 3/19/20 we cancelled a 1 week stay beginning 4/4 that we had booked for our son’s honeymoon. Trip was booked 9 months out. They are penalizing us. They say we will get a cancellation fee or lose flexibility in our points which will only be good for balance of 2020 and can only be booked for stays 60 days in advance! Travel is being cancelled due to pandemic. Restaurants on the island are already closed or restricted. Access to the port is restricted. Travel internationally is nearly banned and yet this is our problem. We had to cancel a cruise with Viking set to depart on 4/18 for the same reason and they offered 125% credit good for 2 years or 100% cash back now. Airlines are also accommodating. But not Westin Resorts or Vistana (handles owner bookings). We spoke to a Vistana manager and she apologized but said there was nothing she good do for us. Not good business. Good luck getting us to buy at other properties Westin! I won’t be attending any more Time Share sales presentations either.
Beautifully restored after hurricane Irma!
The resort is beautiful! The staff is awesome, welcoming and helpful! The shuttle and transportation in the resort is efficient and quick. The resort is clean and the units are gorgeous! It was an awesome stay. We had a unit on top of the hill with awesome views ant what amounts to a private pool to ourselves.
