This is my second time staying at Maria's. This time it was post bareboat charter trip, the first time was the night before we left on our first trip in 2012. The rooms area always clean and nice and chilly for your arrival. It seems after getting off the boat you just want a hot shower and an ice cold...

After reading all the reviews of this hotel and having had one prior experience with this hotel about ten years ago, I was expecting the worst. Stayed here recently as a speaker for a conference being held at the hotel and it was actually a pleasant experience for the most part. Don't order breakfast and expect to get anywhere in...

We stayed at Maria's before a Moorings yacht charter. It is a short walk from the ferry. The rooms are nice and have balconeys with a nice view. The staff was friendly. The location is great as you can walk to the restaurants nearby. It was just a short cab ride to the charter docks.

We stayed here after a sailboat charter. The folks at check in were very nice and I'm happy to say that unlike other reviewers my room was clean, comfortable, and lacking any maintenance issues. The hotel itself is a 5 minute drive to the marina's and a 5 minute walk to the ferry terminal. Also a short walk from several...

First, the check-in staff was super friendly. We stayed in the new wing so we had a nice updated room with a view of the ocean. We had a TERRIBLE time with the AC. It never got below 79.2 degrees. They moved us to the room next door, saying our AC wasn't working. Well, the one next door had the...

I recently stayed at this hotel during the 60th Festival Celebration. Nice hotel, employees were very helpful, food was very good but a little pricey. However, meals were pricey all over the island. The hotel has a pool but no beach front area. However there are quite a few beautiful beaches that are open to the public all over the...

We were willing to forgive the problems with the room, but not the rudeness at that hotel beginning with check in. No eye contact, barely answered questions. Was completely bothered by our being there. The restaurant was not much better than check in. No personality at all so we ate there only once. We will never go back to Tortola....

We recently stayed at Maria's By The Sea for one night before our boat charter began. I wanted something close and inexpensive since we would be getting in late from a long travel day and just needed a place to sleep. I was wrong on this one! Wow. I'm pretty low maintenance but apparently so was this room. So nasty...

The hotel rooms were great but our stay was ruined by the rude service in the breakfast restaurant. The waitress was unfriendly and seemed annoyed to serve us. She was unhelpful and curt. She even overcharged us and the order was wrong. Such a shame.

Superb rooms, beds and bathrooms. Service in bkfast was average. The waitress seemed annoyed by just being asked about breakfast. Not very friendly. Rest of the personnel was friendly and helpful. The views of the sea harbour are very nice and relaxing. Rooms also have a huge comfortable balcony. High ceilings make you feel at home. We had our room...
