TOTALLY enjoyed our stay at Frenchman's. The service, amenities, property and room were just perfect! We stayed in The Lime, which was a 2 bdr villa which had 3 outside spaces. The upstairs deck had a beautiful view, but it was hard to stay at the villa when the private beach was beckoning! Some reviews mention that it is small,...

I have done a lot of traveling and have to say the staff and management made our stay incredible. The first thing is the Manager Peter went out of his way to help us in our arrival, literally giving us the shirt off his back as our luggage got lost by United Airlines who I might add made no effort...

This was our second stay at Frenchmans. This time we stayed in Lime, a two bedroom villa. IMO - best villa at the resort. Each of the two bedrooms have their own balconey, and there is a third balconey off the living area. The kitchen contains everything you would need to dine in, which is a solid consideration given the...

Beautiful low key resort with private beach where you can snorkel and kayak. The restaurant provides daily breakfast and dinner on reservation but no lunch which is inconvenient on days you spend at the resort. However it is a delightful place with a friendly and professional staff.

My husband, daughter and son in law rented the Avacado villa last week. It was the last villa up the hill on the property. I highly recommend it for privacy ! It was perfect. The restaurant on the property is awesome as well. I would highly recommend a stay at Frenchman's ! A gorgeous property on Tortola - you will...

What an amazing hotel! The staff is incredible - they have great recommendations of things to do on Tortola and will book/reserve your excursions for you. The complimentary breakfast and coffee was delicious! During the downtime in our trip, we really enjoyed using the kayaks and sitting on our deck soaking in the views.

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful days at Frenchmans BVI resort before heading out on a week long sailing trip. Our visit was so relaxing and the staff was exceptional. After traveling 15 hours, our taxi driver called the resort and they kept the kitchen open just for us - we were so tired and hungry so this was...

Last time I was here, I came with my best friend, this time I brought my husband, his siblings and parents! We had an amazing time, and they immediately understood why I loved this place once there! The staff was incredibly courteous and polite, and it is worth noting patient too, since they made many calls to the front desk...

I would love to give this place a better review. While the staff was adequately friendly, I simply cannot give above 2 stars. Pros: Quiet atmosphere, nice views, the living room and kitchen were supplied efficiently to lounge and make breakfast Cons: The first night, the room smelt like urine and mildew/mold (which I later found out was on the...

I'd give Fisherman's 3.5 stars. The pros: The location is absolutely gorgeous and well-maintained, very quiet and remote, villas spacious and spotless, staff is extremely gracious and as accommodating as they can be, under the circumstances that some basic amenities are missing, which they don't have the power to provide. For instance, the website implies that there are food options...
