Peter Island Resort and Spa
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Peter Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Our family of 4 (including 2 boys, ages 11 and 13 years) just returned from a relaxing week at Peter Island Resort. Here's the deal:

-Location: secluded and for the most part quiet and private
-Beach: you won't find a nicer beach anywere. White fine sand, no seaweed, crystal clear water!
-Rooms: we stayed in 2 interconnecting Beachfront Suites and they were fabulous. We had requested the bottom suites, which have hammocks outside the rooms and they were perfect.
-Housekeeping- the rooms were spotless, and not a bug in sight. The only room for improvement was that there seemed to always be a shortage of towels (room and beach) and we had to request them often.
-Food: was generally very good. We purchased the meal plan so that our growing boys could eat whatever they wanted!/ Drinks were relatively expensive but in line with other 5-star resorts we have been to in the Caribbean
-Dive Shop- we had exceptional service. My husband and 11 year old son went on 2 separate excursions (dive, and snorkel) and had a great time on both of them.
-Tennis courts- artificial grass; 2 of them appear to be new, and are in great condition, and the other 2 are in need of a renovation. There is no pro there but the resort can arrange for one if you request it
-Service- was exceptional from some of the staff (thanks to the General Manager, Wilbert Mason and his lovely wife, the concierge manager Colin, and Grandma Jean the cookie lady) but lukewarm from some of the other staff members. We did not encounter any problems though with the service, and found that a little friendliness went a long way!
-Arrival and departure from Tortola- the Peter Island boat trip was smooth and took about 20 minutes.
-Other/Misc.- although the resort states that children need to be 8 years of age and older to stay at the resort, this was not enforced and there seemed to be quite a few younger children there. This was not a problem for us, but if you think there will be no little children running around you will be disappointed. The other potential issue for some people was that there was a lot of boat traffic in the harbour, with many people on the beach and in the restaurants who were not guests of the resort. The non-resort guests are not supposed to use the pool/facilities or lounge chairs on the beach, but we saw many of them who disregarded the signs put up by the resort and parked themselves all over the resort anyway. Sense of entitlement, I guess!

Overall we would definitely go back to Peter Island Resort again, and put it right up there with Caneel Bay and Little Dix Bay as a wonderful option for a Virgin Islands holiday!

After we sail, we sleep and relax at a resort. A resort is more wonderful than normal after a week on a sailboat. Seven nights sailing followed by Peter Island. 52 rooms. More staff than guests, wonderful food, everyone says hello. Always enjoy the 5 mile sunset loop bike ride up a mountain and down a mountain, requires one hour. Wonderful ride, great exercise, wonderful views. Beach is quiet and beautiful. Enjoy sailing the sunfish and cats.

My husband and I went to Peter Island in June 2011 and had a wonderful time. We were looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation with some adventure and that's exactly what we found. My husband was impressed with the dive shop and went on a few dives during our trip. We also went out on one of the boats with Mark from the dive shop for a full day trip around the BVI's and did a half a day trip as well to go snorkeling. Both trips were great with the exception of some rough water. Mark was entertaining and took us to some places we would not have known about. We loved the beaches at Peter Island and many times felt like we were the only ones on the island. Snorkeling was good and the water was beautiful. The food was good...really loved the french toast at breakfast. Definitely grab a bottle of wine and do the sunset loop...was very beautiful and romantic. We look forward to returning to Peter Island one day.

Room Tip: We did the basic room with an ocean view and were satisfied. We were rarely in the room so we didn...

We spent three nights on Peter Island at the end of a week of island-hopping adventuring, hoping to relax, eat a lot, and sleep. We accomplished all three, and more!

Our room was listed in Frommer's as one of the "less desirable" garden rooms, but we couldn't disagree more! Spacious, beautifully decorated, breezy (open the BOTTOM of the patio doors), so clean, and quiet - we loved our room. Being able to walk right out on the yard and hop into a hammock or gaze over the low wall at the see or watch the boats coming into the marina was awesome for us.

The staff was so friendly and wonderful. Some are definitely more outgoing than others, but we never had a problem with anyone! In fact, since I was pregnant during our stay, the staff actually bought me a baby gift - what other hotel would do that??

The food at the restaurants was so delicious - every night a different menu, lots of wine choices (for the hubby) to look at, and an unbeatable breakfast buffet.

We opted for an afternoon on the private Honeymoon beach, which was lovely and deserted, except for the big soft beach chairs left for us. Very nice. My husband mountain biked and sailed, and I snorkled and took advantage of the free yoga, which turned out to be a private lesson.

Upon leaving, our bags appeared at the marina and the resort arranged for us a shuttle all the way to the ferry terminal where were were departing for St. Thomas.

A truly amazing stay, one that we won't forget! I only wish there had been some more rainy day activities for the day the weather turned a bit chilly, windy, and rainy. And, of course, I wish we'd been able to spend even more time there!!

Room Tip: Those "less desirable" garden rooms are beautiful, and a great deal on this amazing resort...
