Staying in 4C and 4D with family. Some road noise here. Cottages are clean and stocked with dishes and cook stove and coolers. Haven't seen any cockroaches. Beds are clean and reasonably comfortable. Lots of long time repeat visitors are unhappy with the changes coming--expensive eco-tents and losing lots of bare sites. We do our own cooking and have heard...

New promotions have removed the label campground; the posted photo no longer applies. Campsites are being redone with large wood platforms and camp-supplied leaky tents. The buildings are dense with tree cutting and unplanned water run-off. The "camp" store is really a souvenir shop. Group campsites are being removed. Beach is still beautiful, but expect an expensive glamping experience. Staff...

This place recently changed hands and, while it's still the same gorgeous location, there are some serious issues. They're clearly trying to be the Eco resort that Maho Bay used to be, but despite generally nice and friendly (if poorly informed) staff, the management clearly really can't get it together. For the Eco Tents and other more "upscale" options, the...

We stayed 10 nights in cottage 3A. It was in much better shape than we expected after reading some of the reviews. On day 5, we had a heavy rain storm at night. Several of the other cottages (1A for sure) leaked and the beds got wet. I read the review about having a roach problem, so we brought small...

It was disheartening to see some of the changes, poor roll-out and missed opportunities that new management could easily own. I do not remember in our 35+ years the chronic morning alarm bell for the septic system ringing, sadly, new management points the finger to the Park Service. Grounds are not as cleanly maintained, some toilets are loose and many...

New menus for restaurant are very limited. Lunch is only served noon till 2. Lobby restaurant area looks great. New staff seem to be young kids not well versed in island time or customer service. New tents look great but price point has gone up

Pleasant,clean,well equipped. The Beach was awesome, crystal clear and calm. St. John is a small clean well maintained island. The people are friendly. We rented a car and it was easy to get around. Hard to get lost, but not impossible.

I knew I was in for a treat or a horror and it was both. Now I knew it was a campground and so I would have to walk to the restrooms and that the showers would be cold. Ok lots of national park campgrounds don't have showers. And we were in the cabins so we didn't have to bring...

This is a spectacular setting. The beach is pristine and gorgeous and the snorkeling is great. The accommodations were somewhat difficult. This is a campground but is different form other NP campgrounds. I think your experience could be improved by going truly prepared. We stayed in the cottages. Currently these are small concrete rooms with electricity ( which is essential...
