Accommodations Part 5: See The Benefits of Rockefellers’ Charity and Other Luxuries

Hotels

Finally we come to what we all think of as the basic accommodation and St. John has only two and perhaps three depending on how you categorize things. Caneel Bay is St. John’s original resort hotel and of all the properties on St. John it has the best access to some of the best beaches on the island. There is a good reason for this and it involves the Rockefeller family who bought up huge tracks of land on St. John, kept the best for a hotel and gave the rest to the US government for a National Park. Suffice it to say it is the premier property on St. John. Of course the price point is commensurate with its’ status.
