“Long Bay Beach Resort - Tortola, BVI”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

We went there after 7 glorious days on a yacht cruising from St Martin to the BVIs and prior to returning to London.We wanted somewhere to chill out on a beach with great swimming.

The beach is superb but not really good for swimming as it can be dangerous.However we loved watching the 3 or 4 Pelicans diving and flying around looking for fish all day.
A lovely bay 15 minutes away called Smugglers Cove is excellent for good safe swimming and average snorkelling though.

The hotel sadly needs much tender loving care and an injection of money urgently. It is in a glorious location but is now looking quite tired and out of date.
The non-service around the swimming pool was quite extraordinary. They could easily make it so much better without much money. Umbrellas in the eating area blew over in the wind because nobody had thought to make their bases heavier. The choice of food is a joke - no salads for a start- and the one sweet lady behind the bar which was also a small kitchen (!) was a bit stressed and that was at a quiet time. Not mad about getting the smells from the BBQ cooking when in the pool!
No fresh fruit juices, no ice creams and no waiter to take orders around the pool.

The main restaurant on the beach has a great location but the food was only adequate with well meaning but very slow service, albeit by sweet people. Again they could make it so good with just a little imagination and money. We did not try their Pasta place as we were not there long enough.
We enjoyed our 2 days because of the fabulous location but somebody needs to take the place over and update it urgently. It could be so good as it a really great property!

Room Tip: We were in a Hillside room about 150 yards away and up from the beach with a great view which was fi...

Nice resort, beautiful beaches, but needs an influx of financial support to refurbish its dated property. I thought it was overpriced for what it had to offer. Management and staff very nice and accommodating.

We returned from a week's vacation at Long Bay and had a fabulous time. The resort is incredible...great scenery, attentive and friendly staff, manicured landscaping, beautifully clean pool, and delicious food. Yes, the food is pricey but it's just as pricey everywhere else on the island....you're not in Des Moines, folks. The water on the eastern half of the beach has a rocky bottom; however, the western half has no rocks and is perfect for swimming. The resort has two rental car companies on site, a snorkel company, two restaurants, a spa, concerige service, and exercise room. The main restaurant is right on the beach with the perfect ambiance - gorgeous! Best of all - the resort and beach were pretty much uninhabited, and we went during high season. Simply paradise and we would go back in a heartbeat. I'm not into time shares, but I'm ready to buy a timeshare there!

Our room was right by the pool, and had all new furniture and bedding.

We left some clothes behind by mistake, and the staff found them and shipped them to us at our home.

By the way, right next door to the west of the beach is Smuggler's Cove...home of a fantastic coral reef.

The resort and the rooms are lovely, however, other than that we were very disappointed. There is only one restaurant and the food is both TERRIBLE and expensive. An average meal for two, with one drink each, was rarely under $100. Spent $52 for two bad sandwiches and small drinks at the "swim up bar." Be prepared for a $50 shuttle ride to/from the airport. There is NO ATM on site, nor near...bring a lot of cash. The only usable beach is a 20 min walk away, the staff (other than those at reception) made us feel like we were an inconvenience to them. Very rude. The housekeeper came every morning at 9:30 a.m. and was annoyed she couldn't come in. I do not recommend this resort whatsoever.

My husband and I stayed at this resort two years ago and we were a little disappointed with the room and service. We returned this year and stayed from April 5-8, 2012. I noticed a huge improvement in the service and the room. We were cordially received with a rum punch (yummy) and the lady at the front desk explained in detail all the amenities at the hotel, including the spa, gym, activity center, etc. The room was AWESOMEEEEE!!! We were upgraded to an oceanfront deluxe room with jacuzzi and an amazing view. The jacuzzi have a window facing the beach, so you can hear the waves while taking a bath (amazing). The bed, linens, everything was perfect, including the fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, and the complimentary bottle of wine left for us at the room. The hotel is conveniently located near the West End ferry terminal, supermarkets, excellent restaurants, car rentals, etc. The beach at the hotel is very pretty, but in windy days the huge waves make it perfect for surfers. The smuggler's cove is a beautiful blue turquoise water beach with good snorkeling located at less than 3-4 minutes from the hotel. Another beautiful beach at Tortola is the Long Bay beach in East End near the airport. I want to come back and definitely will stay again at this hotel. Thanks to all the effort and attentions received from the staff and Mr. Johnson.

Room Tip: I stayed at the buildings located at the end of the road. My room was 516. I want the same room next...
