My husband and I stayed a week at Peter Island in July 2011. We have previously stayed several places in the USVI and BVI (St Thomas Ritz and Scrub Island). In my opinion, Peter Island take first place!! It is the perfect size, has the perfect amount to do, and is absolutely beautiful.
We arrived as part of a large group with my husband's company. Peter Island had a welcome dinner to include a buffet on the first night. Unfortunately, we--along with one other couple--had flight delays and did not arrive in Tortola until about 10 pm. We called the resort from San Juan to let them know where we were. They had a staff member waiting at the Tortola airport for us, immediately swept us away in an Escalade and drove us to the boat. Once the boat arrived at the resort, another staff member was waiting in a golf cart with tropical drinks. This really impressed us all--even though it was now 11 pm, we still recieved the full welcome. To top it all off, because we missed the group dinner, Peter Island's chef prepared us a meal and had it waiting on us it our rooms. It was NOT from the buffet. Fish, beautiful steaks, salad, bread, vegetables and desserts--all hot!! What a great way to start our trip!
The rest of the week did not disappoint. The rooms are wonderful--no TV, but it's really not missed. You can pick up WIFI at the marina, but even better is the TV/Club room by the pool. I was able to pop in and get on one of the computers to check for emails from my little boy.
The beaches were wonderful. Deadman's is BEAUTIFUL and White Bay (which we reserved twice) has its own secluded charms, along with some of the best snorkling ever--not to mention that it is free.
Food at breakfast, lunch and dinner was impecable. Jean's french toast is a must for breakfast. We always walked away from a meal very happy. A meal plan is the way to go. You'll want to be able to sample all of the menu!
To me, the best part of the resort is the staff. The work so hard and really get to know you. They greeted us by name everyday, and if you make friends with certain ones I think they end up waiting on you. Maxine and Julianna were SUPERB, along with Ms. Jean. I felt like they were family by the end of the trip. They go ABOVE AND BEYOND and I would come back to Peter Island just because of them.
