I recently stayed three nights on SJ at The Tamarind. It is easily the best buy on the island. The single room is cool, clean and comfortable. The shared facilities are more than adequate. I have never had to wait for the shower or the jake. The bar serves reasonably priced drinks and food. A different cook prepares the meals nightly which is terrific. You are a five minute walk to a dozen good restaurants. These places differ greatly in price but I have found that the quality is very good in all of them.
The natural beauty of SJ is why we come. Leaving Tam Court you walk five minutes and you are on a trail that takes you to Salomen or Honeymoon Beach. Spectacular is the word for these places. I would grab a beach towell and snorkel gear at Tam and throw them in your backpack and enjoy the thirty minute walk out to the beach. Use it as a workout, so that the first plunge into the water is even more satisfying. Get a ziplock bag and put some beer and ice. They will make you a giant rum punch for water bottle if you so desire.
I think Tam Court is a great place. Please don't tell anyone so that I will always be able to get in there.
