Tiny St John island is unlike many of the Caribbean islands that rely on tourism. For starters, there isn’t an all-inclusive St John resort on the island. There are lots of options for accommodations … but you won’t find the mega resort, drink-flag experience. Luckily there are some great resort options served up St John style!
Here’s our list of St John resorts and resort-like accommodations!
Keep in mind, while not your traditional resort experience, each of these places offers a unique place to stay, amenities and service that you may not find staying in a villa rental. So, if a shared pool and connecting with other guests over breakfast sounds like your type of place to stay … we’ve got some options …!
