We REALLY wanted this place to work for us. We have a LONG history with the area; West End Tortola BVI...I mean seriously long way back to 1968 - So when we stayed there in 2016 I was hopeful. What can I say? Quaint should not be overpriced with poor, lackadaisical service. We ended our bareboat charter and spent one...

A perfectly wonderful 9-day stay, on the quieter Caribbean side of the island. Fort Recovery is a wonderful place in itself, private, very nicely appointed, unfussy, and, thanks to Anita and her exceptionally helpful and friendly staff, very well run. It's also a very short drive to the Atlantic side, with its restaurants (especially D Coalpot) and an array of...

We just returned from 10 days in Tortola and are convinced Fort Recovery is the Gem of the island. Situated on a small beach on the Caribbean side, it's a quiet and peaceful retreat from the busy and crowded Atlantic side. The units are well appointed, immaculate and comfortable and the staff are gracious and helpful. We cooked in our...

We came only to see the Fort. There is one tower still standing without any entrance. There is another fort Fort Purcell down the street called The Dungeon. You have to look close, there is no sign. It is on the other side of the road from the beach and is overgrown but has a few buildings left. There is...

Thank you for enjoying our Fort at Fort Recovery Beachfront Villa and Suites. It is one of the oldest Forts in the Caribbean and with the original name according to the archives in England. Wounded men were sent to Fort Recovery to recover and also protected the Sir Frances Drake Channel of the Caribbean Sea. I believe The Dungeon was...

Fort recovery villas were absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The villas are right on the beach and the sound of the waves was very relaxing. The villas were very clean and well appointed.

I stayed at Fort Recovery with my family during the Christmas Holiday. We had two suites next to one another - both with a heavenly view. The suite, a bedroom, living room and small kitchen, was roomy, comfortable and clean. Let's not forget the porch right on the sea. I started every day sitting on the porch, reading a book...

I really liked our 6-day stay at Fort Recovery in January 2017. It's a very private, relaxed resort and we had a top floor villa consisting of a king-size bed room and a combination living/dining room and nicely equipped kitchen. The balcony overlooked the private beach. In the evening were beautiful sunsets over St. John which was located about 1...

I like this place. As one other reviewer put it, it's good for Tortola. Very laid back atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Everyone from the office staff to the cook, the restaurant server, the gardener, even the Grandson of the owner very willing to answer questions and showed concern for the guests' satisfaction.
