The staff was welcoming the resort gorgeous. We loved that it was located on a animal/nature preserve and really enjoyed the wildlife roaming around (wild donkeys, deer, iguanas & mongoose). This hotel was very expensive but everything was perfect the staff, restaurants (only two open at end of season) and room. The only minor complaint I had was that the bed was too soft I think ready to be replaced. The seven beaches were oustanding and we cam back totally relaxed and refreshed.
This was our second trip to st John and The Gallows. What can I say about it? Incredible!!! I love staying at the Gallows. Our view was over the ocean to st Thomas, in the daytime we had the breathtaking view of the water and the islands and at night it was the twinkling lights of st Thomas. We stayed in 5B which was a lower unit on the ocean side. The ocean was right outside our back door and snorkeling was steps away. The lower units are smaller than the spacious loft units upstairs, but the reduced cost was worth it. There were peacocks actually roaming around! The only negative thing about our trip was that in September so many restaurants and facilities are closed as that is the off season, but that makes it so much easier to meet the locals. Anna Thompson worked the front desk at the gallows and was so helpful, be sure to look her up if you have any questions.
Was a great stay very accomodating staff .. after realizing our unit had an airconditioning issue we were moved to a different room and given a resort credit for the inconvenience.
Wonderful pool and beach a little pricy for food and drinks but when your on vacation who cares...
all the staff were so nice, especially the mgr. and assistant mgr! such a laid back enviroment and comfortable. they even booked a trip for us that was unavailable to tourists. they were always available for any thing we needed or just wanting to talk. My wife and I loved the quaint inn and we could walk to any place we wanted to go! If you want the Hilton, this is not your place, but if you want quiet, cute and excellant care, plus local flair this is right up your alley!!
Of course this type of vacation is not for everybody, but for those that want something different, it is a great experience. If you are unsure about this type of lodging, do not try it. This is for the person that knows they want to create a unique memory for their family, and goes with a positive attitude.
My boyfriend and I stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. The staff was very welcoming and made sure we were comfortable the whole stay. Convenient parking in front of the hotel as well as a small auxiliary lot near by. The full kitchen is great and totally stocked with plates, bowls, cups, pots, pans, etc. It is very helpful if you feel like cooking in a couple of nights. The only warning I would give is that it is at the top of a very steep hill. Great exercise, but tiring especially after a large meal or a long day out at the beach. I would consider taking a taxi home or renting a car if you cannot handle walking up a hill. Other than that, everything was wonderful! We will definitely stay here again!

Welcome to Hillcrest Guest House, none of the oldest and established lodgings small hotel built in 1966 by the Hall Family …More
Enjoyed the complex and its proximity to restaurants and businesses in Cruz Bay. Our stay was prolonged due to tropical storm Bertha (the ferry was not running). The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable.
