I'm sure you'll get lots of help but first you need to tell us more about what kind of vacation you're looking for.
Are you hikers? Want lots of watersports? Need shopping? Need lots of nightlife? Do you want a resort? Do you want to be directly on the beach? Give us some more info about what you're looking for and you'll get some really good answers!

St John by far! You can take the ferry back over to St Thomas for more shopping if needed.

St. John is untainted, beautiful, and a more relaxing place to be. St. Thomas is better for a day trip.

kinda depends on you and your budget. surprising how the price goes up with that short ferry ride. only caneel or westin on St. John and beachfront properties are a minimum. Easy to stay on St. Thomas and take a day trip or two or three to the BVI, St. John in accomodations in various price ranges with differing amenities.

There are many more affordable places on StJ. You don't have to stay at Caneel to enjoy yourself. As far as StT goes, I'm going to guess and say that 9 out of 10 people on this forum would recommend StJ. Does that tell you anything !!! Good Luck

I too looked into staying on St. John vs. staying on St. Thomas. I opted for the Renaissance on St. Thomas. It was cheaper than the Westin (the one we considered on St. John). It is close to the Red Hook and since we plan on going to St. John at least 2 times while we're there, it is convenient. We also plan on taking a day tour to the Baths in Virgin Gorda. I also believe there are many more inexpensive food options on St. Thomas... that's a concern for us... we are 2 adults & 2 hungry teen boys. The Renaissance offers free non-motorized water sports which is great... for 4 of us, the rentals for those would not be cheap! To be honest, if we had a bigger budget, I'd love stay on St. John... We'd been there for the day while on a cruise... it is truly the most beautiful place my family has ever seen! But since were saving a bit on hotel and food, we'll be able to afford the Baths trip, etc. a litte easier... And we'll be able to afford going back sooner too!!!!
