Best of St. Thomas and St. John
This book needs to be updated. The St. John Inn was hardly an elegant, intimate little inn. We were so disappointed we hunted down alternature accommodations. However, the "Inn" still charged us.
GOOD INFO ON HOTELS & RESTAURANTS.
This book helped me find several great LOCAL bars and restaurants, which really made my trip more fun! If you use Fodor's or Frommer's to plan your trip to the Virgin Islands, you should definitely supplement your research with this smaller, more personal book. You'll find that it contains different descriptions and insider tips on hotels and restaurants than the larger guides.
You'll also find that almost all of the information is still up-to-date in 2002, especially for St. John (things don't change as fast there as they do in other places). Have a great trip!
For New Comer's
This book provides very basic information on St. Thomas and limited information on St. John. The 1st timer to these islands may find this information helpful, however, most of what is included can be found in other sources which are readily available elsewhere. Other than the beautiful picture of Trunk Bay on the cover, the book provides no other pictures. Which, in my opinion, is a shame because the real magnificence of these islands would be better conveyed through some select pictures and not just text alone.
