Trip Report back from idyllic honeymoon in St. John

Jump to last reply

With Gratitude to everyone for your advice we returned tired but happy from our 5 year delayed honeymoon. Our visit to St. John was all we dreamed about. The Westin on the whole was very comfortable - bed was great, room was comfortable, staff for the most part very friendly. Only complaint (and this is being picky) is that the towels were a bit threadbare for a 4 star hotel. Also did not appreciate the heavy pressure to go to a time share presentation.

Beaches - never made it to Trunk or cinamon Bay but adored Leinster and Francis Bay and Hawksnest and Salt Pond. Fell in love with snorkeling.

Strongly advise renting a car so you see the real island - but beware, the roads are crazy hairpin turns at 75 degree angles. Only for the brave of heart. If you are not up for it find out about the taxi system - we used it at night to go to diner as Cruz bay has no parking.

Restaurants: Loved Morgan's Mango, Miss Lucy's and had the best desert I've ever had at Ocean Grill. less thrilled with Rhumb Lines and Waterfront Grill. Also highly recommend the Westin's new upscale restaurant Cruz Bay Prime - best steak I've ever had.

The only other down note - I was distrubed by the racial division on the island. Coming from a well integrated community I was distressed by the lack of interaction between black and white communities. This was our first trip to the caribeann so I don't know if this is true throughout the area. I've decided that from now on when I travel I will try to always contribute to local charities - hopefully mitigate any negative impact my visit might have.
