On the plus side... 1) exceptionally clean; 2) a short 3 minute walk from the ferry dock; 3) nice view of the Road Town harbor; 4) large bright room; 5) includes safe, fridge, mircowave. On the minus side.... 1) staff somewhat indifferent but not enthusiastic; 2) safety could be improved with an uneven step at the top of the second... More

We stayed at this hotel for only one night. The breakfast was good, food served warm and with a friendly smile. The coffee was REALLY good.

Great location in Tortola. Unfortunately, having been to lots of hotels in the Caribbean, unless you pay plenty for an expensive hotel, you only get a moderate hotel with usually poor service.

We stayed 2 nights here after our Moorings charter went bust. We were surprised by how crazy clean and spacious the rooms were. Very modern and comfortable. The staff was excellent and the breakfast was fantastic! We really enjoyed it!

Matter a fact it wasn't even a serving as no one ever visited our table in the 23 minutes we we're there. It had 4 tables with people on it, yet seems very slow and chilled. It was so disappointed to have wasted our time, however we did enjoy the breeze. Basically the service sucks. P.s we went to purssur'... More

Just returned from a BVI vacation. We started by staying one night at Maria's by the Sea. Nice rooms if you stay in the newer part of the hotel. The restaurant experience was no so good.

We had a room right over the pool with a view of the harbor. We walked down the street and had dinner a a place recommended by the front desk, and... More
