What a wonderful time my husband and I had at this beautiful resort. I cannot say enough about the accommodations, the staff, the delicious food, and the peacefulness. We met other guests who felt the same way we do; that there is just something about this place that is hard to put into words. It's just a feeling you have...

I can not tell you how great it makes us feel here at Fort Recovery Beachfront Suites and Villa Hotel, that you enjoyed your selves so very much, and to give us all the recognition you gave to us. I can't take the credit for Mother Natures contribution to the setting, and I do cherish that myself, especially the great...

Our family enjoyed a most wonderful holiday in the BVI! Fort Recovery was like a luxurious water-front home away from home for the two weeks that we were lucky enough to be there! Having our own kitchens made it a pleasure to dine in and we especially loved leisurely sipping our morning coffee's while watching the boats sail by on...

Great views, close to good food, nice stay. Close to the ferry, sailing activities, and car rentals. There is also a good market right down the road. We had a great time, and enjoyed the breakfast. We were sad to leave. Thanks! -Marissa & Mike

My husband and I ended up at Fort Recovery as a result of missing our cruise ship. Luckily we had travel insurance and were instructed to get a flight to the first port the cruiseship would be at and we could meet up there.

It wouldn't be nice to say "that I am glad that you stayed at Fort Recovery Beachfront Suites and Villa, and not glad you missed your cruise you planned. but overjoyed that you did and still made the cruise experience." So you had both. and that is good. We are more than delighted that you did enjoy our hotel and...

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...

I am so sorry that you found things so disappointing. We really do try to please people as much as we can, with the help of mother nature being on our side. Perhaps having an extra person in a one bedroom suite may have been a little crowded since it consists of a patio, living-dining area, fully equipped kitchen bedroom...

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...
