Had to overnight in Tortola. Taxi fares are high - $35 US to this hotel from the airport. The hotel served its purpose giving me a good night's sleep. There are a few restaurants within walking distance and the hotel has one though I didn't use it. Its a good *** hotel but nothing special. They need to have a...

First time staying here though we've been to BVI many times. Easy walking distance to ferry terminal, good location in downtown, large airy room and nice facility, nice pool, no beach for swimming. Downside is proximity to big cruise ship docks (Disney ship was sharing its music with us for a while) with construction going on next door. Our room...

We stayed only one night, before we picked up our charter boat the next day, and it was perfect. Convenient location, clean rooms, and the restaurant was excellent! Make sure you have time for breakfast! We also had a few hours to kill, so we relaxed by the small pool, which had a great view.

First of all, you should know, nowhere in BVI are there any franchises, no KFC, no Hiltons, etc...so upon asking, Maria's was recommended, especially as the hotel is close to the hospital where I had my business. The front desk couldn't find my reservation that my company pre paid, then I had to stay an extra 2 nights as an...

I went to Tortola for a consultation, and was accommodated in Maria's by the Sea, which has a good reputation for quality rooms and even better food. I arrived in Tortola in the evening - later than I anticipated, and arrived at Maria's by the Sea just in time for dinner. My arrival time was fortunate, because the front desk...

Clean and modern hotel, friendly staff, good food, challenging location. Set on a riprap beach between the ferry dock and village cay. Not a family vacation resort, but a nice modern air conditioned hotel in town, with spacious rooms with a view for business or resting a weary traveler.

Large, clean room with air conditioning and good wifi connectivity for working. I was in Road Town for client meetings and enjoyed the views and hospitality from the staff. Easy to get to clients from this hotel and close to the dock to catch a ferry to other islands.
