For families looking to unplug, the Westin St. John Resort wants you. The hotel offers oodles of kid-oriented activities to help keep kids and their parents busy and happy.

The island of St. John doesn’t have an airport, so it’s only accessible by private boat or ferry from the island of St. Thomas. For a fee, the hotel provides round-trip transportation which includes meeting you at the dock, taking you over on the ferry and then a short ride to the resort. Although arrival to the hotel could be tough for impatient travelers, the amenities should make up for it.

The kids activities go beyond the standard staff-led games. Think iguana feedings, a massive playground, two ocean trampolines and a climbable iceberg. An on-site water sports company can arrange everything from snorkeling day trips to power boat rentals.

Non-motorized water sports are included in the whopping $40 a day resort fee. It also includes unlimited Wi-Fi, fitness classes and use of the tennis courts.

The private beach here is gently sloped with soft sand, just right for little splashers. Older kids have their own teen club where they can take a break from their parents.

Nightlife is non-existent here, so if you’re looking for some action past sundown, take a five-minute cab ride into Cruz Bay, a bustling shopping and dining area.

In the past few years, the resort has converted its villas into timeshare properties, leaving the rooms in the main building for hotel guests. The rooms are standard Westin fare with the rightfully famous Heavenly beds and large tubs good for bathing little ones. Airy beach tones of sand and sky blue make the beds stand out like puffy white clouds. Aside from the views offered, there’s little difference between the traditional room and the upgrades to the deluxe or beachfront room.
