Know Before You Go
This destination may have governmental restrictions and/or recommendations, such as masks or quarantine requirements. Due to the unique nature of our vacation ownership properties, Marriott Bonvoy benefits are limited. For Important Notices and the current status of your resort’s amenities, services, and other potential impacts to your stay, please visit the Property Updates page
Car rental services and taxis are available on St. John and at the resort. If you plan to rent a car, we recommend that you do so on St. John, as the car barges running between St. Thomas and St. John are smaller and run less frequently than prior to the storm. The Westin®
ferry service is running on a modified schedule
(PDF) and includes unlimited travel from the resort to St. Thomas, including shopping trips with taxi service to the market.
Food and Beverage:
Snorkels now offers three meals daily, serving breakfast from 7–10 a.m., lunch from 11 a.m.–4 p.m. and dinner from 5–9 p.m. It is the only operational restaurant on property. Mango Deli has reopened in its original location and offers breakfast sandwiches, light fare, and sundries. Villa prestock service
is now available online and will be served from Mango Deli. There are many restaurants at nearby Cruz Bay, or if you prefer to prepare your meals in the privacy of your villa, the local markets are fully stocked.
Some Cruz Bay restaurants close during the late summer and fall seasons. Both the front office and Concierge have an updated list of the local restaurant schedules. Another dining option is to take the Westin ferry over to St. Thomas to enjoy its abundant culinary offerings. With the Westin ferry you can leave the resort on the 5 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. ferry run, enjoy dinner, and return on the 9:30 p.m. trip.
Dining and Activity Payment:
Please note that all outlets for food and beverage and resort activities operate cashless.
Environmental/Infrastructure Impact Fee:
